Input Mask - incl. Webforms

Little surprised I've not found a similar post about this, unless I'm using the wrong terminology.   


Is there a way to enforce a specific input mask - say I wanted to caputre phone numbers - I want them to appear as +44 000x-0000000x (where 0 is expected numeric and x is optional numeric) - standard database/data integrity rule.   Particularly useful in a webform for my purpose - I know you can do this on Google Forms, just wondering if the function exists.

    The Smartsheet web form does not have this functionallity.  The best I can suggest is that you place text in the form saying how you want it.


    As an alternative you could construct the Sheet with a column for each and a concainate formula to bring them together into the final field.  Then in the web for get them to fill in each section seperatly.
