How do I add a phone number field to a card?

I want to use Trello to build a newsroom 'futures file' for my business news publication ... to track company news events and contacts as well as work flow. 

I got the Custom Fields power up, and it allows me to put in a Company Name, Contact Name, Website etc. into a card, but when it comes to a phone number it does not allow the (xxx) xxx-xxxx schema. At best it can be xxx.xxxxxxx under the numbering field that Custom Fields allows. 

I've done dozens of searches and looked at as many power ups.. and I see no way to add a field that will take a phone number. 

What am I missing? I feel stupid.

Currently working with a client using Contalist. It is more than a contact list it has email templates, actions and automations ...etc

Bingo! And thank you!

Hi @Paul Riat

Yeah, I was surprised that Custom Fields didn't have a phone number field.
