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!
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)...it takes responsibility and places functionality more in the users hands...it doesn’t feel as though it needs to be something controlled by an IT team via permissions etc.
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.
