Adding Clickable Phone Number

Hello,

 

Is there a way to add a clickable phone number? I'm making a mobile app layout and need my clients to be able to click a number and it automatically start a call.

 

Thanks!

Hello @CharlotteB,

 

1. Click on the visual or text box where you want to add the phone number.

2. In the Visualizations pane, click on the "Fields" section and select the field that contains the phone number.

3. Click on the ellipsis (…) button next to the field name and select "New measure".

4. In the formula bar, type the following formula. Replace [Phone Number] with the name of the field that contains the phone number.

Phone Call = "tel:" & [Phone Number]

5. Click "Enter" to create the measure.

6. Select the visual or text box where you want to add the phone number again.

7. In the "Visualizations" pane, go to the "Visualizations" section and select "Web URL".

8. Drag the "Phone Call" measure you created earlier onto the "URL" field of the "Web URL" visualization.

9. In the "Data" section of the "Visualizations" pane, select the "Phone Call" measure and click on the ellipsis (…) button.

10. In the dropdown menu, select "Default Summarization" and then select "Don't summarize".

 

Should you require further assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out.

@Sahir_Maharaj I followed your steps but I don't get a hyperlink that automatically calls from my phone... I just get the data and nothing happens when I click
