If you want to use a Trigger to send an SMS to someone within your organization, you need to ensure that recipient has validated their cell phone number within Tulip.
Additionally, SMS messages cannot be sent to landlines, so users should not add a landline numbers.
Make sure that the user has their cell phone number listed by going to the "People" tab in Tulip and check that they have a cell phone number shown under their name.
If the phone number is red, that means that the person hasn't validated their phone number.
If the phone number is missing, that means the person needs to add their cell phone number to their user profile. Admins cannot add cell phone on behalf of other users. The user must add the phone number within their own profile.
To check your user preferences and to change or validate your phone number, click on your user profile on the right end of the Menu Bar and go to your profile.
If the intended recipient doesn't have a cell phone number, ask that they add it with the method above. Then, follow these next steps to ensure that the number they enter is validated.

- Click on the "People" tab

After you've made your changes to your user preferences, please make sure to validate your cell phone number again. Validation happens after you confirm the verification code sent via SMS.
