Making Communicator Voice/Video Calls from hyperlink RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'd like to incorporate hyperlinks in user profiles for members of a forum site I run internally at my office that would initiate a voice or video call between two Office Communicator users.  What would the syntax be to accommodate this?  I tried using "sip:" followed by the e-mail address of the recipient user, but that just opened a chat window.  I tried "callto:" with the e-mail address as well as the IP, but it always gives me an error: "The specified address is not recognized or does not exist..."

    Is this even possible?  I mean, I know the voice and video works in our current configuration.

    FYI, we are not using this as a SIP solution for our telecommunications.  This is purely an in-house, desktop-to-desktop implementation of Office Communicator (and Live Meeting, as well).

  • Not sure if this helps, but "tel:<Phonenumber>" seems to work for me...

    for example Add a hyperlink with tel:9,142511111111

    Hope that helps
