Click to make a phonecall out of podio

Hi,

we´ve got a VoIP phone (3cx). Is there a way to create something that I can make calls from my contact app? In my contact app I´ve got my customers with phonenumbers. I´d like to start a call directly out from the app ba clicking on the number.

On the mobile app the phonenumbers got automaticly a link but not with the browser.

We released a new phone field to make this possible:

https://help.podio.com/hc/en-us/articles/201019298-The-fields-in-app-templates

You can add multiple phone numbers to this field. Click the "Call" button to the right of any phone number to call that number. In order to start the call you will need to have a software like Skype installed on your device that can execute the call. 

Depending on which software you use to make the call, a different protocol might be needed. Skype for example operates with the default "callto:" protocol, however most Microsoft software works with a "tel:" protocol. You can change the protocol in the settings of the phone field.

You may want to look at the docs for 3cx to see if you can construct a hyperlink for this.
We have created click-to-call links for Skype using calculation fields that generate the link through markdown. For skype, it's just a link.

I see that a hyperlink? has been set up to use Google Voice to click to dial a contact in Podio? Please explain to me how this is set up and how I can use?

Is there an existing app that is now available for the Google Voice click to dial in Podio feature?

@Michael, there is no current app or solution. The best way would be to build it yourself or ask a partner for help as Sara suggested.
