It appears that "tel:" hyperlinks does not work to create a button that opens a URL to call a phone. The button is not clickable.

However, the "mailto:" URL shortcut works, but not "tel:"

Are there any workarounds to this that will put a clickable link in any view type? (grid or interface?)

Hi @Ian_Ayers 

Thanks for reaching out and great question here! A the moment, it is not currently possible to create a button using "tel:" to call someone like you can "mailto:" to email someone. I can see how it would be helpful to be able to do this. This functionality may be possible using a script. Feel free to ask this over in the scripting section of the Community for more help with that if needed.

I had problems with this as well for a post on creating click to dial for various sources of contact data. I ended up taking your screenshot as inspiration and inputting "" instead of "tel:". That did it.
