2681227 - Auto Format Phone Numbers Using Hyphens


  • System should format the phone numbers in panel
  • Customers want to add dash to the phone numbers


  • SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding

Reproducing the Issue

  • When employees enters xxxxxxxxxx (where 'x' is digits) then panel should auto convert the numbers into the format – “xxx-xxx-xxxx” (where 'x' is digits and '-' is hyphen), even before saving the data on the panel


  •  Expected Behavior with custom panels


  • Custom panels have limited functionalities of which phone number auto format using dash (-) is part of it. Hence, we can't change this because this is the same behavior for every customer
