Follow our workaround to add a functioning URL command to your Skype social icon in seconds.
Skype click to call links are not supported in all email clients (like Gmail).
To overcome this, you can build a simple "https://" link that leads to your Skype link instead.
This http:// link will work great in any email software, even Gmail.
- Go to https://is.gd/ and shorten links skype:employeeskypename?call for all employees.
- Add the short https:// link to your employees Skype field.
- Reference the Skype click to call links like this:
<a href="((Skype))">Skype me</a>
Note: This will not work with other URL shortener services like Bit.ly. Only use the one provided above.
