Call via Skype from contact

Recommended Posts

I'd like to be able to call a contact via Skype.

 

I see how I can pass the number to a URL, but how do I get the number in there. The URI scheme is skype:<number to call>?call

 

How do I pass in the contact's number? What is the name of the parameter/variable.

 

I searched the docs but didn't see anything.

In the Contacts area of the preferences, create a custom action for the Phone field and set the action to be the uri scheme you mentioned above, replacing the <number to call> with {query}
