How do I dynamically populate a 3rd Party element?
In this example, we're going pass a telephone number from a Number element and dynamically populate the 3rd Party element in order to use that number to make a call from the device.
PLEASE NOTE: To launch different 3rd party applications you will need to know the schemes you're looking to use for iOS or Android to understand how they work. Have a look at this article for some useful tips.
STEP 1. Add a Number element to your form. For this example, the data column name is enter_a_phone_number.
STEP 2. Add a 3rd Party element below your Number element.
STEP 3. From the Dynamic Attributes drop-down, select the 3rd Party URI for the platform you're designing for.
STEP 4. In the 3rd Party URI field, put the following: "tel://"+enter_a_phone_number
The scheme for calling the telephone is "tel://" and the data column name you'll be pulling the number from is enter_a_phone_number.
STEP 5. Save your form.
STEP 6. Test it out on your device.
