Enabling Skype

318 Views

There's a lot of buzz around free international internet phone calls. Me too, I installed Skype and found it extremely easy to use.

So, I decided to think about how to 'integrate' Skype with SAP Business One.

Guess what? In 5 minutes I was up and running.

For the benefit of other people who might find this useful I provide the simple steps to make this happen. Also, it might be a good idea to forward this information to your SAP Business One sales guys: at least one competing product (www.hansaworld.com) has proudly presented this functionality.

1. Create a User Defined Field to Business Partner (or Business Partner Contacts, or both)

Title: SKYPEID

Description: Skype ID

Type: General

Structure: Link

Click OK

2. Navigate to the Skype ID field in BP

3. Ctrl+Doubleclick

4. Enter a callto: -link to the File name –field on the File Open –dialog

For example: callto://xprts.biz

You may use the above Skype ID for testing

5. Now doubleclicking the SkypeID –field kicks off a Skype session

Happy Skyping,
