Phone Dialer and/or Skype Tile?

Nick Miller 5 months ago in Panels (dashboards) / Special Tiles • updated by Alex (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 5 months ago 1

Is it possible to dial a phone with a tile button press?  I would like to have individual tiles for each of my family members.  Theory is to press on a family member's picture, and have skype or similar VOIP make the call to the family member and talk through the tablet.  Has this been done?

Hi Nick,


Please try the following:


Create a new Shortcut, enter your phone number like this:

tel:+1-555-555-5555

Add a new Shortcut Tile to your Panel.

Under Tile Setting, choose Open shortcut in the same window.


Now, tap the Tile to launch the dialer.
