We have a telephone list within confluence, as we also have telephone clients on our computers (and may use the wiki on mobiles) it makes sense to turn the numbers into links that dial our phones.

I have tried adding these type of links (tel: voip: callto:) in our pages but they seem to get filtered out

What am I doing wrong, I can't be the first person to put a phone number in a wiki!

Hi Neil

You can use the HTML macro and paste your HTML code there.

If you don't see the HTML macro!

Enable all modules for "Confluence HTML Macros" plugin located under "System addons" in your "Manage add-ons" menu




Perfect, I used it to put in the following HTML and it worked smile, thankyou.

<a href="tel:+44 20 7123 4567">+44 20 7123 4567</a>

unfortunately this solution did NOT work for me!

if i put this in the editor:

<a href="tel:+44 20 7123 4567">+44 20 7123 4567</a>

apter "apply" it's changed to this:

<a>+44 20 7123 4567</a>

and not working anymore (also not in this box...).

I use

Confluence 6.15.9

It would be beneficial if you could just link phone numbers like you can email addresses (mailto:), without the need for html/coding (I'm a newbie and find the macros amazing) takes responsibility and places functionality more in the users doesn’t feel as though it needs to be something controlled by an IT team via permissions etc.

Please add this functionality to the Cloud version!  It's killing me cannot add tel: links.

Would be a great addition :)

Hi Neil,

Dave is right for the server version, but not for the Cloud version, where the HTML macro is one of the restricted functions.

Unfortunately, as you can see from the comment from Atlassian in this ticket, they're not going to implement tel: links so you're a bit stuck as far as native functionality goes.

However, there is an HTML add-on for Confluence Cloud which should work - you'll need to add something like

<a href="tel:+441234567890">01234 567890</a> - and the pricing is cheap.

My apologies. Did not notice it was for confluence cloud.

Apparently it wasn't Cloud smile

I see, Anyway i'm glad the problem is solved laugh
