Copying cell values from mobile layout

Hello, friends. 


I am making my first app with the mobile layout, and phone numbers are a central piece.


From my research it is evident that creating a hyperlink for phone call similar to that of "mailto:" for emails is unavailable within Power BI, so users will be required to extract the relevant phone number from the report.

However, I cannot find a good solution. It seems that the only way is to use a visual that can be shown as a table and copy the cell value from there, which is rather unpractical and limiting - for instance, this workaround does not work with multi row cards or Cards (new). (Edit: it works with Cards (new) if the values are in their own card, but not as reference labels - might be the best solution thus far)

Any suggestions on how I can make it easy for users to copy values such as phone numbers? I would be surprised if this is not a common design requirement for the mobile layout view. 

All the best and thank you for replies.

HI @Petsnell,

AFAIK, current it seems not support these. Perhaps you can submit an idea for add support to expand hyperlink feature with mailto format links.
