Custom Links

We have made it possible for you to extend the usage of WorkPoint Express with custom links from the context menu on for example a contact person or a project.

There are many options for using this feature including other applications based on information placed in WorkPoint.

 Skype for Business integration

One option is the Skype for Business integration which provides dialing a company phone number.

  1. Right click a company
  2. Click Call
  3. Skype for Business opens with the selected company phone number, ready to dial

Google Maps integration

Another option is to provide a link to Google Maps in order to locate a company or person.

  1. Right click a company
  2. Click 'Map'
  3. Your internet browser opens and redirects you yo Google Maps centered at the company's address.
  1. Go to the System -> Custom Links tab
  1. Select your site.
  2. Select the business module where you want the link to appear.
  3. Give the link a friendly name.
  4. Insert the link and insert one or more internal field names from the selected business module to use as values together with the link.

Examples

In order to register an application to handle a particular URI scheme, you have to make modifications to your Windows Registry

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MyCustomWorkPointScheme]

@="URL:MyCustomWorkPointScheme"

"URL Protocol"=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MyCustomWorkPointScheme\shell]

@="open"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MyCustomWorkPointScheme\shell\open]

@=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MyCustomWorkPointScheme\shell\open\command]

@="\"D:\\Development\\WorkPoint365\\TestApp\\WindowsFormsApplication1\\bin\\Debug\\WindowsFormsApplication1.exe\" %1"

    Hvis det er en af standard modulerne der anvendes, eller der har dannet grundlag for et tilpasset modul, så vær opmærksom på at "tel:{Phone}" skal ændres til "tel:{wpPhone}" i det første eksempel. Det samme gør sig gældende for Google Maps eksemplet hvor de interne feltnavne for standard modulerne er wpAddress1 og wpCity.
