So here’s a question on phone links —
<a tel:>, and such.
- A user is provided with a unique link to a page
- The link signals the page to display a ‘click to call’ function.
- You know where that user is generally located when you establish their unique link.
Would it be good user experience to pre-format that phone number with an international prefix suitable to calling your number from their country? Would you feel the need to offer a way to change that? Would you display the number a specific way to make it clear that the international codes were already in place?
The link, or button, would be displayed on mobile or desktop versions of the site.
Trying to think if a Skype ID option could be provided too but I feel like this would get too cluttered and lose the advantage of being a simple call to action.
Send thoughts on a UI Card layout.
