One-Touch Dialing - SfB - Meeting Organizer



  • With SfB conferencing when you schedule a meeting with SfB or Teams you get something like this in the calendar invitation.

    This Join by Phone link works just fine for someone who isn't the host, but as a host, is there a way to program in the Host key entry (not listed) so the dial in is just as seamless for everyone else?

    IE: Host Dial in

    The second entry, from a "cell phone link" isn't a link as soon as it gets to the first # sign.

    Anyone have any ideas?



  • Got it solved, for whatever reason the link just truncates itself to end at the first point.

    But if I go and edit the link (since this is email I can do that) from

    tel:+15556667777,,852850041# to tel:+15556667777,,852850041#,,*77805# everything works as expected. It's just a bit more of a manual process.



  • If I were to copy and paste this into the dialer on my phone it works, but a one-touch link is the goal.

  • Of something to note, this same format works for iPhone text messages, but not Android. This isn't an ordeal for me (as most of our user base are iPhone users) but might be worth looking into further to figure out why it works for one but not the other.
