Phone/Website Fields

Hi and Happy New Year,

I'm creating an app that (among other fields) includes phone numbers, addresses, and website urls that our folks would need to have on hand AND that are inputed by the user. Would it be possible to add a phone number field that (when long pressed or something) would give the option to actually dial the number? How about for the website address to visit the link via Firefox or Safari that the field user has entered?

Thanks,
Tony

    Hello Tony,

    We have a hyperlink field that can be used to access a website, but this field was not designed to be edited in the field.

    Right now what you are looking for is not supported, but it is something that we are exploring. I will share your interest in this with the development team.

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Hello Tony,

    We are working on a new functionality called 'data events' Once released you should be able to set it up in a why to make it so you can make calls from a phone number captured in your data or go to a website's URL captured in the data by the data collector. Don;t have a release date yet, but this is actively being developed.

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Hi Alex,
    with data events now available, how can we set it up to dial a phone number from an entry?

    Thanks,
