Remarkety expect to receive the phone numbers formatted as E.164 international number,
if you are not sure whether the source application provide the phone number in E.164 format or in a local format, you can use Zapier's formatter to convert the phone number from any format to E.164.

  3. If the phone number is not in E.164 format or you are not sure, follow these steps, otherwise skip to the next step:
    1. Add a "Do this" step to the Zap.
    2. Select the "Formatter by Zapier" app and "Numbers" as the event.
