I want to insert a cell phone number in my email so that readers can immediately text me if they want to talk. But, when I test it, it just rings, no option to text me is offered.

Is there a workaround or some other option I'm not aware of?

 

Thank you,

 

Rhenda

Hello @RhendaG0 ,

 

Clickable telephone links are dependent on the browser / email clients the emails are accessed in. Generally these are only for the sake of calling, texting links would require copying and pasting in their messaging app. Our engineers are looking into it however, so I've gone ahead and gotten your case submitted to them. If and when they have an update, they'll make sure to notify you.
