I love the automatic icons that appear when you format a column as Phone or Email.
However, for my current project, no one wants to see the SMS icon.
They would prefer to see a little WhatsApp icon that would launch the WhatsApp application.
I am logging this as a feature request, unless I missed it somewhere:
is there a way for me to control which of these action icons appear?
And in the meantime, what is the best way to add an action with a link to open the WhatsApp application?
I tried to create a virtual column and specify the URL, but I have a couple of issues:
AppSheet has a few characters, such as the forward slash / reserved for mathematical operations, and these are part of the URL address.
Secondly, the URL has to be dynamic:
a concatenation of a URL constant (https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=) , the country code, and the phone number.
