Help with several different things please

When setting up and entering zipcodes and phone matter what I do in the setup, zipcode seems to be able to be any number of digits and letters and same with phone numbers.


How can I get these set as a format?  Zip Code should be 5 digits for US and 6 for Canada.

Phone numbers should be allowed 10 digits only.


Please help!!

Hello nikitatime,


Unfortunately there isn't a feature in ACT! that will allow conditional formatting for fields, but you can have a character limit.  You cannot change the character limit on existing fields, so you will have to create a new zip code field and then copy the data to the new field.


As for phone numbers, you cannot set a character limit.  They reason why its not limited to 10 characters is because of international phone numbers.
