When the user is looking at a list which contains names , phone #'s and email addresses and clicks into a particular record, is there a way for the system to bring you to your own phone’s text application or email application to send the message from there?
Hey there @openhousevisitors,
Do you mean linking a phone and email to a text element/link element?
For email you can do:
For phone you can do:
Thank you for your response.
Actually I am interested in doing the following:
- The user of the App clicks on an “address” element which is part of a repeating group.
- The workflow for this element then takes the user directly to his/her own email account on their phone and creates a draft message/email using the “address” from step one.
So it’s not that the user fills out different input fields which then are used to create a text or email message, it that the system opens up the users own email and begins the message there.
Hope that helps to clarify.
In that case, you’d use this type of mailto link for a prefilled email:
mailto:[INSERT EMAIL ADDRESS]?subject=[INSERT SUBJECT LINE]&body=[INSERT BODY]
(removing the brackets when you do use it though)
Thank you very much. It took me a bit to figure out where to put the mailto: structure you provided. Did not realize it was a simple as using the workflow to open an external website with your provided structure.
