Clickable phone numbers

I know there is a way to do this, I've even looked up the html code in the past to try to make this a reality. The different OS for mobile phones should be able to read something as simple as this. There was also a post about this a few years back that looks like it never got resolved. Is this possible for Constant Contact to implement or not?

Hello @SCVHabitat,

 

Thank you for coming to the community with this question.  Clickable phone-numbers are something that have changed a lot over the years.  Before you needed special coding to make them work, and it could cause problems on desktop displays, however in most cases neither of those are true now.  The majority of phone-based email clients will automatically convert any phone-number into a clickable link, and our newest editor should automatically make that possible.  If you're using our legacy editor, and want to edit the html, you can insert a link and then change the href= website to instead read href= #555-5555  replacing the 5s with your correct number of course, and leaving any other symbols like quotes or semi-colons in their original placement.  This works on a number of devices, but is not guaranteed to work on all, as that method simply isn't as widely used as it used to be.
