A field that needs to capture numeric data that is not used in a calculation can be configured with a Number style Short Text field.

Number Style Short Text Field

Certain numeric data, like postal codes and phone numbers, may require attributes that are not possible with a Number field. For example, some US ZIP codes start with a 0 and number fields will not allow that. Additionally, phone numbers are easier to read with formatting like parentheses and dashes, which are allowed by a Short Text Field.

In order to change the style of a short text field, simply select the field to open Field Settings in the left panel. Under the Style drop down, select Number.

Save and Publish to device to see it on mobile. Once on mobile, the field will default to the secondary keyboard where numbers and special characters are located.
