Custom search notations

Sometimes phone numbers are saved in the CRM/ERP system in an unusual format and it is not feasible to reformat all numbers via a script or database operation. In that case it is possible to add custom search notations.

Go to Settings -> CRM -> Enabled custom search notations.


Then the 'Custom Search Notations' box will appear where you can add a search notation on each line.

You can add all kind of whitespace and custom characters. The following characters will be replaced:

+@ will be replaced with the country code of the number prefixed with a +-sign, e.g. +31
@ will be replaced with the country code of the number without a prefix, e.g. +31
# will be replaced with the following digit of the number
When the number is longer than the number of provided #, than the rest of the digits will be appended at the end of the format.

You can switch between edit mode/preview mode to check if your formats provide the desired results.
