Sending SMS via Flow (Nexmo)



I have a problem with my flow where I store a mobile number within my Contact record within my Model Driven App. The flow is meant to manually generate an SMS when ran so it is a simple simple flow. My issue is that the number is stored in my Contact record in standard format without the international prefix. I add this to flow before I dynamically populate my mobile number within my flow and it still wont send due to the character 0 being before the number the international prefix utilises.


For example:


Mobile number in contact record 0400111222

Flow setup: 



It wont send due to the correct format to send being without that 0 (61400111222)


Any suggestions?

@noble - Can you remove 0 and then try? OR if you can not remove 0, you can Substring it? Something like below...


substring(mobilenumber, 2) ?
