Force a telephone call from powerapps?

Hello all,

 

I am familiar with the Launch function but am wondering if there is a way to force the phone to dial the number? I have a safety app that I would like to dial automatically if a user has not checked in. I have the Launch function but  this brings up another screen on the device to make the call. Is there a way to force the dial out?

 

Thanks for your feedback.

Unfortunately no.  The Launch function will bring up the phone app.  The best you can do is pass the number to it.  The user would still need to actually initiate the dial.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
