    Click to call links do not work on jotforms

    Asked by sklayman on September 16, 2014 at 02:08 PM



    I'm trying to add a click to call button to one of my mobile forms, but apperntly although the code is working on my site, it's not working on the form.




    Are there any adjustments needs?


    Thanks a lot!

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I was able to reproduce the issue with the click to call links on forms, it seems that the tel: links are being stripped by the editor. I have attached a bug report ticket to this thread and escalated it to our Development Team.

    We will update this thread as soon as we have any news.

    Hello Shai,

    We are glad to inform you that this bug has been fixed. "tel" scheme is now allowed on Text (html) controls.

    Please be advised though that as per the tel URI standards, phone numbers should NOT contain spaces. Also, the protocol should be tel: and NOT tel://

    For example:






    Hope you find these information useful.

    Kindest regards from the team!

    Additional note:

    To ensure compatibility with most voice call apps, I would advise you to remove any separators such as parentheses and hyphens.
