    On other thread mentioned issue with prepopulate app and masked phone field was not reported to our developers. 

    I did some tests and it is still not possible to prepopulate masked phone number field with prepopulate app. 

    I will escalate this issue to our developers and we will inform you via this thread once this issue is resolved. 

    For now instead of phone number field you can use regular text box field and set validation of that field to be numeric. Or you can manually insert it on the generated URL, like my colleague suggested on other thread. This guide will help: http://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-the-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters

    Thanks for the quick response. As a workaround I've used a text box, but the mask would be very useful!

    Regards,

    James

    Hi,

    This has now been fixed.  Telephone fields with input masking are now supported in the prepopulate app.

    Regards,
