Formatting your Phone Number

If you want to be contacted by phone, make sure the number you entered is formatted correctly.

InitLive is now Bloomerang Volunteer—a new name, a new look, and a new integration. Bloomerang Volunteer works just like InitLive. You can do everything you always do, and in the same way.

All phone numbers should follow the E.164 international telephone numbering plan. In order to get app notifications and other communication to your phone, you will have to make sure your number is in line with E.164. To ensure that it is, you can follow the format outlined below:

The standard format is a '+' followed by the country code and the subscriber number. Your phone number should look similar to the following example.

[+] [Country Code] [Subscriber Number including area code]

+ 54 1147840932


This format is the best way to record your phone number in Bloomerang Volunteer. You can also add periods, dashes, or spaces to separate each section of the number.
