🚨 Important information about phone number format

AWS requires the recipient phone number to be in E.164 format (e.g +49123456789). For this purpose this extension provides a custom Input validation option called Phone number (E.164) for the form generator.

For a better user experience we suggest to use a small JavaScript called International Telephone Input which makes sure the inserted number matches the format.
