Having an app means users of it will want to interact.  Here’s how you can make your school phone number part of that interactiveness.

It’s pretty simple to do – just replace our sequence of number with your phone number and add the code in into the Writer widget of your choice.

and you’ll get this  123456789

Note the ‘tel://’ schema instead of the normal ‘http://’ schema. This is the important bit.  You can do this in the HTML editor if you want (i.e.you don’t have to go to code view). Just change the ‘http://’ in the link making tool to ‘tel://’

Simples!
