Help with calling using Skype for Business app

Hi guys, 

I'm new to PowerApps and I've searched around in docs and this forum but I cannot find how to call using the Skype for Business app.  

I know how to setup a button to make calls out in Windows 10 using the below.

* Win10: Skype for Business. 

    Using command:   Launch("tel://xxxxxxxxxx")

    And then setup within Windows 10, using the the default apps setting and "Choose default applications by protocol", CALLTO.  Then set it to Skype for Business.

 

I can also call using the normal Skype app using the command: Launch("skype:xxxxxxxxx")

or Launch("tel://xxxxxxxxxx")

or Launch("tel:xxxxxxxxxx")

Then setup in Android within the App default settings. 

Not in iOS though.

 

But I cannot seem to call using the Skype for Business app on an Android or iOS device.

It should be simple but I just couldn't find it.

Please help.  Thanks.

Hi @PaulK9 ,

 

The URL scheme of Skype for business: ms-sfb://

Please try this: Launch("ms-sfb://")

Hope this helps.
