HOW TO: FaceTime and Skype Call links in HTML signature
I'm sure this has probably been covered in a forum post somewhere else, but couldn't find one, so thought I'd pop a post up!
I like the post Allyson did covering how to put HTML signatures onto your iOS device!
But.... Did you also know.... You can create an HTML link in your signature to would allow someone to auto dial you on FaceTime, or Skype much is the same way it can open a website, or a new email?
For instance, in my email signature, I have the below
Simon Hardy | Mobile Security Architect | FishNet Security | +44 (x) xxxxx xxxxxx | +1 (xxx) xxx xxxx | FaceTime | Skype | LinkedIn
When someone gets my email, they see that FaceTime, Skype, and LinkedIn are all HTML links, and when they click them they will either dial me on FaceTime (if they click it from an iPhone, iPad or Mac), dial me on Skype (if they are on a device with Skype installed) or will take them to my LinkedIn profile.
It's really easy to do this...
For a FaceTime link, all you need to do is set the URL of the word you want in your signature to this...
Where "YourAppleID" is either an email address or phone number that someone can FaceTime you on.
Skype is just as easy....
For a Skype link, all you need to do is set the URL of the word you want in your signature to this...
Where "YourSkypeID" is Skype username where someone can call you on.
Not sure if this will help anyone, but I've found it really useful and folks seem to enjoy the ease of use!
