Request that common fields could be validated as the text is entered or upon form submission.
An example is to have a specific format that is acceptable for a phone number for example. If the user types "304-555-1212" or "3045551212" or "(304)555-1212" or "304 555-1212", etc. that the database is populated with "(304) 555-1212".
There are several other fields that some sort of field validation could also take place such as the correct format for an email address, Empty fields where you might expect an answer, but are not required fields, might also give a visual reminder that all fields don't appear to be filled out, and do they want to go back to the form and review (fields in question highlighted) or continue with processing the form.
