Dial Phone Numbers from browsers or other application in Teams

Occasional Contributor

Hello MS-Team(s), 

 

I'm using Teams also as Softphone for external calls. I'm searching a solution how to dial phone numbers from a browser or other systems (like ERP-Software) via teams. Maybe there is are extensions for Edge or a configuration in Standard Apps in Windows10. I didn't found any of it yet - and maybe there are some security concerns :) Other VOIP-Solution has such settings. 

A feature like this would increase productivity enormous.  


Kind Regards

Daniel

Hello, @Freundt - thanks for your advice, I have tried to get this to work but it's not picking up Teams as the dialler.  I only have Facetime as an option when clicked (using OSX, and Chrome).  The extension is live, and i updated to your settings above but it hasn't done anything.  Any ideas?

 

Cheers!
