Hello! I contacted support, and they told me that the reason why a phone number field must be converted into text255 data type when using triggered action is that triggered actions automatically add the (+) 1 to existing phone numbers.

Just to add why +1, it's because Caspio only support US and Canada numbers for now  https://howto.caspio.com/tables-and-views/triggered-actions/#:~:text=Currently only US and Canada phone numbers

Hi All - In relation to Caspio's new feature of Worldwide SMS Notifications, if you would like your input phone number fields to be automatically formatted - you can use the International Telephone Input plugin. This JavaScript plugin is used for entering and validating international telephone numbers. It adds a flag dropdown to any input, detects the user's country, displays a relevant placeholder, and provides formatting/validation methods. To know more of the customization, you can check this link: https://github.com/jackocnr/intl-tel-input

Here's a sample result in DataPage:
