Most mobile devices with telephony capabilities will automatically convert a string of numbers that appears to be a phone number into a tappable link that can initiate a phone call.

It might be nice to have the the tel: link scheme as a supported link type for images.

A phone number as text is certainly better, and will work automatically on most devices, but we have some clients that want the number as a graphic for stylistic reasons. It would be great if tapping the image would initiate a call.

Hi Mark -- Thanks so much for sharing this idea here in the Community!

We're a little thin in the office due to the holiday weekend. We'll be digging in with our product team next week and will reach out when we have an update!

Good morning, all! In talking with our product team, this isn't something we'll be able to get to in the next six to 12 months. I'm marking this as Not Planned and will keep you posted here if that status changes.

Thanks for this idea!
