Plus sign (+) control for phone numbers

If our EDQ components are used to validate a phone number or if the existing number in your database was entered manually with a plus sign (+), our component will display the plus sign (+) when your object is in view mode.

If you want to always retain the plus sign (+) when saving phone numbers, you must enable a config setting. This setting is called Enable phone code plus signs and can be enabled by following the instructions on our Configure global settings page.
