I want to be able to use RingCentral to put a button on the Mobile Version Only of my website and when the visitor clicks the button it will open their text message field, auto populate the # where the message should go to and them be able to send the message to me via text message. Has anyone done this yet? Have the code for how to accomplish this?

Where is the text message field? Is it the RingCentral mobile app or the native SMS app on user's mobile phone? Or do you mean a message field on your website?

Want to place the button on our website, user would click the button and it would open up their text message and our # would be auto populated and they would be able to send their message to us. I think Ring Central this as a program possibly? Just looking to see how to integrate it onto our website but we only want it to be available if someone is looking at our site on a mobile device, not on the website on a regular desktop.

I know a website that is using this already - is there a way that you know of to be able to get the code from their site?

Check the stackoverflow question I posted below. You can check if the platform is mobile or not via JS.
