Do your relations call with Microsoft Teams or a softphone? Then make sure that the telephone number stated in your e-mail signature can be dialed directly. The most convenient way is to include the telephone number as an HTML rule in your e-mail signature.
You do this by adding “tel:”. In HTML it looks like this as an example:<a href=”tel:+31886224000“> tel: 31 (0) 88 622 4000 </a>
1: In Outlook go to File> Options> Mail and select “Signatures”;
2: Open the Outlook signature folder on your computer;
3: Search for and open the new signature file, for example in notepad;
4: Enter the above HTML code with your telephone number and save.
If the recipient now clicks on the link in your signature, a screen will open where they can choose how to call, for example with Microsoft Teams. Similarly, you can add sip with a colon for your Microsoft Teams username. If someone then clicks on this link, Teams will also open immediately. However, the combination of “tel:” with a telephone number works best for both desktop and mobile browser.
