You should include the area code, but not the country code. For example, 250-555-5555.

Sending Customer notificationsBack to top
Configure the system customer_phone field within your Booking Form field editor, then Checkfront uses this for mobile notifications.
You may wish to change the default label for Phone to Mobile, and add a tip that explains that you are sending an SMS to this number.
Please note that SMS notifications are currently one-way only, from Checkfront to the recipient.
