Call Phone Number Buttons or Links


#1

How do you create a phone number that can be tapped on a mobile device to generate a phone call? Is this possible through Unbounce to have the mobile version of the landing page have the phone number clickable to quickly generate a phone call to the client?

Thanks,

Seth

Hey Seth!

Good news! You can do this with the current button linking function in the page builder. In the button’s properties, set the click action to “go to URL” and the target to “not set”, then in the link box enter: tel:555-555-5555

The “tel:” part of the link should trigger a prompt to call on any modern phone browser.

Let me know if that works for you.

Thanks for reaching out :blush:

Jess, there isn’t an option to have the target be “not set”. When I test this on my published page, it just opens a new tab in the browser and nothing happens.

Hi @bradlarabell!

The builder has been updated so that “Call a Number” is now an option in the button’s action drop down. Just select that one and a field will appear where you enter in the phone number.

Hey Caroline,

I’ve tried this option, and it still doesn’t work. It loads a new page in my browser that is blank instead of prompting to make a call. Here’s my landing page https://livecardinal.com/oak-leaf-manor-north-landing-1

I get a 500 error on desktop after I hit the button and it tries to load this URL https://livecardinal.com/oak-leaf-manor-north-landing-1/clkg/tel/717-323-6010
