Make phone number clickable

Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to make a phone number clickable such that it opens or event sets up a call on android. We use tablets with sim cards in the field and this would make life of enumerators easier.


Maybe it doable. I have succeeded to have a button that sends an SMS to a number input into an ODK form.


Hello @bjvca,

This should be possible. using hyperlink feature with [link label](link address) where the link address is the phone number you wanna call (could be a link from another field in the form too) built using calculate field to bind "tel:{number}" with form field that holds the number. The same method could be used to send email using "mailto:{email}"

I edited a form (url.xlsx (11.3 KB)) once shared by @yanokwa in this thread to match your request.

Hoping this helps.

Happy ODKing
