Other ways to start Bria
Bria can be started from a hyperlink
You can attach a hyperlink to a phone number or a softphone address that starts Bria and dials the number when it is clicked. For Bria to start dialing when a user clicks the hyperlinks, the user must configure Bria as the default phone and associate Bria to the protocols.
Attach a hyperlink in this format:
<a href="sip:address_or_number">dial address_or_number</a>
<a href="sip:aphillips@domainA.com">dial aphillips@domainA.com</a>
With the tel protocol, you can call an extension from a hyperlink. For example:
<a href="tel:+16045553727;ext=1">dial +1-604-555-3727 Extension 1</a>
Note a semicolon (;) between a phone number and an extension. When a hyperlink is clicked, Bria dials the number and pauses before dialing an extension.
Make sure you use the tel protocol; the other protocols do not support calling an extension.
