You can change and individually format phone numbers with special rules. This can be done using Search/Replace or Regular expressions. Besides the formatting rules, phone numbers can also be changed internally/externally via those rules. Depending on whether the phone number has been registered by the telephone system or sent for dialing to the telephone system, the sequence of processing the rules will be changed. Additional information about the sequence in which the rules will be applied are described in the sections Phone Number Formatting and Dialing Rules.
The rules permit detection of phone numbers based on Regular Expressions or direct comparison. Each entry can be configured individually. If the Replace With column has been entered, the phone number will be replaced automatically. The configured rules will be processed from top to bottom until the first match has been found.

Note the order of the Phone number formatting.

The sequence in which phone numbers will be adjusted for Dialing has to be observed.
Specific Examples for Formatting Phone Numbers:
|If a comprehensive set of rules should be established, the list can be maintained outside the administrator's utility. Existing rules can be exported as XML or CSV files, adjusted correspondingly and then re-imported.|
|Entries that cannot be edited were automatically created by UCServer for the determination of phone numbers from other locations. These rules will be recorded as Generated Expressions. A tooltip will indicate the location for which this rule was determined. Additional information regarding this will be found under Advanced Location Settings.|
