    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.

    Great idea! You can build this via the Podio API: https://developers.podio.com/

    If you need help from a developer I recommend requesting a Podio partner via this page: https://podio.com/site/partners/find-a-partner

    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.

    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.
