    Hi Bill,

    You can do all that in the form builder. Just add a text box field to your form and set its validation. You can also do input masking for a preferred format.

    Please make sure to update the embedded code on your page after that since I can see that you're using a form source code.

    Thanks. I changed the form to the embed code, as opposed to the source,
    and that looks like it fixed the email and phone field. The name field
    however, I cannot get to any validation options in the editor, and a user
    can still put numbers and punctuation there.

    Sorry, I misunderstood the text box part. I changed it from a name field
    to text box, and now see the validation options.
