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!

Mobile phone numbers are clickable in campaigns as long as they are formatted in the appropriate format. However, some email clients do not allow for this capability and we do not have the ability to override this setting. We will be marking this as implemented as it's available through our CPE editor.

I second this feature.


I would like to track people who call from the email, most smart phones do turn the number into a phone # link but this is not happening when I recieve the email on my smart phone plus this isn't trackable. Our event attendees can only call to register, would love to add a "hot button" option to the email.

Constant Contact would be more useful, if the emails could enter a call me button!

Yes please add ASAP it's crazy that we can't do this.


Yes for the love of all that is holy, add a Tap to Call option please.


Please enable this feature. Or at least make it possible to add custom HTML within the simple/visual editor. Thank you.

I would also love to see this feature available.

We also wish to use a Button as a way to contact us by Phone and tried using the following code:


Sadly ConstantContact is restricting us from using this code.

We then tried to add custom HTML using code like this:

<a href="tel:+555-555-5555" class="button">555-555-5555</a>

Though since the latest upgrade to your visual editor the HTML option is no longer available.

Is there any plan to add the ability to edit HTML in the Visual Editor like it was available in the past?

I am aware we can do custom code from scratch as shown here though we have already created a template so unless we can extract the HTML from the existing template we need to continue using the Visual Editor.


Looking forward to this feature being approved or any response on how we can work around this problem.


I want this also! a Call Now button and it just calls the business!
