Forwarding calls using powerapps.

Hi,

 

I want to create a powerapp which will be opened on a smartphone.

This app should be able to periodically make a phonecall to a number which is a combination of a code and a number defined in an (online) excel sheet. (so forwarding to this number is activated)

This excel will contain the name, number of contact persons and a date when this contact person should be activated. 

 

Now I found out it is easy to startup the phone call, but still you need to push the "phone" button to make the call on your smartphone.

So I used the launch(tel:\\*21*contactphonenumber#) command and this just opens the telephone app on the android with this number completed, but doesn't automatically dial the given number.

 

Anybody has an idea how this can be automated?

Hi @uwedp 

 

Please try the below statement

 

Launch("tel:01482226460,%23,253" )

 

%23 is # key

Thanks.

This doesn't seem to be working.

 

I still end up in the call menu with the number. He should automatically initiate the call.
