click to dial
Add Click-to-dial for tel protocol. Our staff makes a lot of calls and has to copy and paste phone numbers right now. Would love to see an option for Teams to handle "tel:" protocol or another option for the ability to click-to-dial phone numbers within a web browser. This needs to be supported on Windows and Mac.

Surprised this isn’t already sorted. Sfb allows it...
Yes this would be very very useful !!
tel: is there now. I just tried to set it up 1-2 weeks ago, and tel: was definitely missing from set defaults. Today my coworker says "yeah, I did that, why didn't you?" and lo and behold, it's there for me now.
Surprised this is not yet configurable.
need to make a streamlined phone call interface - 1 to 1 calling - if wanting to take the place of the phone
They already added callto, im and sip although it would be nice to also have the option to use this for tel and a few others so that it would work with things like Dynamics 365, etc. See June 20th here https://support.office.com/en-us/article/What-s-new-in-Microsoft-Teams-d7092a6d-c896-424c-b362-a472d5f105de for details on the supported protocols so far.
Great idea, we need this as otherwise the users will be confused because some program install helpers like Google Hangout. This is a must to help "change management" with users in a Teams Telephony scenario

This would be a carbon copy to what Skype has in it's outlook add in. Should be easy to implement and is a huge time saver for those clicking on meetings in transit to dial in.
