Validate a full phone number has been supplied in a webinar registration.

Your form code appears to not completely work. When I select "Required Field" for Telephone, it does not require that the user input an actual telephone number. The last webinar I scheduled, almost HALF of the registrants were able to do so without even providing a phone number. This slays my domestic sales team, who need that data more than any other contact field.

Hi Joe,

I'm sorry but we do not have a way of validating the phone numbers or other personal information that Attendees provide when they register.

Thanks Glenn, I didn't expect such a fast response.

I'm not asking for validating phone numbers, I'm asking to just see ten or more digits, with or without hyphens or parentheses, that could possibly be phone numbers.

The form currently allows letters, combinations of letters and numbers, or even single digits. This is out and out lazy programming, not a lack of capability.

How about kicking back the form submission with an error message when "ABC" or just a single digit is put into the required field?

I'm going to turn this into an Idea so it is considered for a future update.

Appreciate the attention!
For me, the purpose of webinars is 75% to drive leads, 25% to brand.
Leads without phone numbers are worth 50% or less in quality.
Limp wristed form logic equals bad phone #, bad results. Other platforms do not omit this requirement.
