I like to be able to make it so that when the user click on the phone number it will ask them if they want to dial the number, and the same for the email.
Can this be done and if so how?

Thanks you all very muchmake phone

The email is pretty simple.  FM has email functionality built in as a script step:  SEnd Mail [ Send via E-mail Client].

The phone number is a little bit more of a challenge.  First, if your system doesn't have a modem attached, you can't use the Dial Phone script step.  So, you have to do something else.  You could figure out how to play the correct tones for each number and then play them, but to where?  The computer Speaker?  So you hold the phone up to the speaker?  Not a good solution.  So, I don't find it worthwhile.

I noticed a there is a checkbox on the dial phone script step that says Perform with dialog.  What does that do for you?
