    how can i make a calculated phone number clickable on a mobile device?

    Asked by dslyderink on July 21, 2014 at 08:17 PM

    I am using a form to "calculate" a best contact phone number. However I can only do this using a standard text box field, not the phone field, hence a mobile user cannot click it to dial the number.

    Is there a trick to getting this to work?

    Hello dslyderink,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly.

    Do you want to make the value of a text box clickable?  I am not sure how that can be achieved but you can make any number clickable in HTML by adding the hyperlink code. Example:

    <a target="_blank" href="tel:41977480336564 ">Call 41977480336564 </a>

    Please be noted that you can also make the phone numbers clickable in thank you message or the submission email by adding the tag: tel:{phoneNumber} as the hyperlink URL. Please check the screenshot below:

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you meant to ask something else.

    Thank you!
