Zip codes, phone numbers, custom ID’s require the custom input field in a registration form to be made up of numbers only. That’s where this addon for Profile Builder comes in handy.

    Hi!
    I think that the upgraded ProfileBuilder is exactly what I am looking for. I do have a few questions though, I would like for one type of user (in your example say, the patient) to be able to search only the other user type (e.i. the Doctor list). I am also wondering if I can make edits to the formats of the search results? or if the formats are set.

    Thanks,
    Steph

    If patients and doctors are two different user roles, you will probably have to create two user listings one for patients and another one for doctors. Then direct users to the doctors list only where they can search.

    This add-on isn’t working for me. I want to have a formatted telephone number field but the formatting doesn’t appear, just the string of numbers.

    Hi Robin,

    We’re not formatting the text the user enters. We’re just validating to make sure it’s in the format displayed in this image:

    This doesn’t appear to work because it doesn’t require the user the enter the phone number in the (XXX)XXX – XXXX format.

    I have the phone number format clicked on my registration screen but It will accept any input as long as you enter 10 digits.

    Am I missing something?
