Please help: Skype for business as a widget RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All:

    I work at a university and administer some grant submission software. I have very limited coding knowledge, but am trying to create a widget that will launch a Skype for business chat window with a specific user. I am able to create the widget to launch Skype for business, but am having trouble connecting to a specific person. I essentially get a message saying that the user is unknown. I think part of the problem is that our university hosts Skype on a central server, and I'm not referencing that server properly. I don't know how. Here is my original code that launches Skype for business:

    ('callto:deweyt@institutionname.edu?chat')">Contact Support</a>

    I have also tried just

    ('callto:deweyt?chat')">Contact Support</a>

    The server that Skype is hosted on his lync.institutionname.edu

    Can anyone advise on how I should code this to call up a chate window for user deweyt? Thank you
