MetTeam data format

Can the data format for fields be specified in MetTeam?

For example, in Contacts, there are many phone and FAX number fields.  These fields are 50 character string fields.  I would like to specify the format to be used for data entry.  There are many different ways that people write and type phone numbers; (123)456-7890, 123.456.7890, 123-456-7890, for example.  I want them to all be the same and would like to enforce this rule at the time of data entry.

I know I could use a Data Check to enforce the rule,but it would be better to enforce the rule at the time of entry, rather than at the record save event.
