Mobile Click To Call

With this day and age, I would think that most people check their emails from their mobile phone. Your system does not allow to add a href for a phone number example: (333) 444-5555 I get an invalid url error and it will not let me save my changes. Please let me know if you update your system in the future. Thank you!

This is for the dev team. The only way to properly ensure that phone numbers are linked in Androids Gmail App is by using a link. In your page builder, you can only insert http and mailto links. There is no way to make GMail...

Has this been added. I am not able to link a phone number in your builder app. Please advise.

Just wondering why, in 2019, this still has not been implemented yet...???  It would be a very helpful feature to have!

It's now 2020, and I'm also trying to figure out how to do this. This would be a great feature!

This in not an idea.  It's a necessity.  Post haste.

CC needs to develop the ability to create a "clickable" phone number that allows recipient to view email on cell phone and "click" to make the call.

Allow the click and call feature on emails. I am surprised CC does not support this.

Yeah, I'm surprised after FOUR years since this request there has been no action taken...

I make most of my campaigns in the custom code editor. When I use the code <a href="tel:+1-555-555-5555">555-555-5555</a>, the link doesn't work in any browser I test it in: gmail, MacOS, Windows Outlook, iOS. I finally deiced to click the "View as webpage" link and opened the page source. It looks like constant contact automatically changes the <a href="tel:+1-555-555-5555"> code to: <a href="#">. It's as if it detects that the code I used is not a http: or mailto: and "fixes" it to just #.

If they haven't added this feature by now, then they clearly don't want it available.

More "ignore the customer" behavior from CC. What in the world is so difficult about listening to your customers and supplying them what is needed and wanted?

Here we are in 2021 and constant contact still does not have this feature available? Disappointing.

Hi @TheDermCenterglowMD we apologize for any inconvenience from this feature not being available! We do however have a potential solution that we plan on testing out with a small group of customers. Once we're able to confirm it works as expected we'll be able to roll it out to a wider audience. While we don't have an exact ETA yet, we will reach back out to this thread with any further updates.

Hi, I tried to find the way to add a button so people can call us right away from the mail. Sadly I got to know there is no way, after researching.
In our lead management process, is Highly important to have a call from our leads, so missing this option is a huge gap in the process we are trying to have when using CC. I would really appreciate if this is a topic to be implemented soon as is an important piece (and we thought we had) when choosing our mailing tool.
Thanks!

Hard to believe this feature has been requested for over 6 years.  This is a basic feature of all digital marketing campaigns. You can't even use HTML as a hack work around - unbelievable! 90% of our target market are contractors at a job site so all are accessing our email marketing from their phone.  Looks like we will have to find a different solution. Really disappointing Constant Contact!
