Skype click to call links not supported in most web and mobile email clients

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). 

<a href="skype:((Skype))?call">((Skype))</a> 


To overcome this, you can build a simple "https://" link that leads to your Skype link instead. 

This https:// link will work great in any email software, even Gmail. 

  1. Go to and shorten links skype:employeeskypename?call for all employees.
  2. Add the short https:// link to your employees Skype field.
  3. 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 Only use the one provided above.
