    I'm able to embed a phone number in a calendar item so that when the reminder comes up (or I just view it on the calendar) I am able to tap the phone number to initiate a call.

    Problem is - I have (as I'm sure many people do these days) many conference calls that also require a moderator and/or participant code after the initial connection. No matter what I do, it won't recognize an embedded phone # and participant code.

    I have several contacts that I have included, for instance, extensions for example :


    888-555-5000 W 6522#​
    (the "W" causes the phone to prompt you to send the remaining 4 digits and the pound)

    I just want to have this feature on calendar items.

    Any clues? If it's not currently possible, any hope to see this feature added?

    Thanks in advance,
    John

    The only thing that comes to my mind is to use one of those calling card pplications and set them up to dial the number and then the pin.

    You would have to think about how to achieve this, but I am pretty certain it is doable.
