eMagStudio does not have a Skype call option, but it can be implemented in the eMag with a help of eMagStudio Properties/Event system and embedding a small javascript code:

function callSkype(username){ 

        var link = document.createElement('a'); 

        link.href = 'skype:' + username + '?call'; 

        link.click() 


Please follow the steps below:


Step 1. Adding the “Skype” button to the eMag. 

  • Make sure you are in the Toolbox mode 
  • Create a button or another object and place it in the desired location in your eMag 
  • In the Properties panel, select Events tab 
  • Select Mouse Click=> General =>Open external link 
  • As the external link enter javascript:callSkype(‘NAME’) 

Notes:

  • NAME should be changed to the Skype ID of the intended call recipient (e.g. your own ID) 
  • eMag will use Skype installed in the viewer’s machine 


Step 2. Javascript embed

Embedding of the code can be implemented in two ways: 

  1. Integrating the Java script directly into the index.html file. In the published eMag, go to index.html file and add the corresponding <script> tag with the above mentioned script. 
  2. Including an external .js file. 
    • Save the above mentioned script in a separate sript file, e.g. qq.js 
    • Open eMag Studio 
    • Open Advanced Options section  
    • In the “Javascript Includes” line, enter the absolute address of the qq.js file, e.g. http://www.yourdomain.com/youremagname/qq.js 
    • Publish the eMag 
    • Copy the qq.js file in the root of the eMag. You can do this before the eMag upload or after it
