Using Click to Call for Clio

First, connect Click to Call to Clio.

AlphaDrive Click to Call allows you to automatically execute a custom PowerShell script whenever a "tel" or "callto" link is clicked.  This allows you to integrate Clio and AlphaDrive with your Voice-over-IP telephony solution.  Before you can use this feature, there are a few settings you need to configure.

Setting AlphaDrive Click to Call to Handle Phone Links

In order to set up Click to Call, you will first have to configure AlphaDrive Click to Call to be the default "TEL" and "CALLTO" handler.

These settings can be accessed by going to your start menu and selecting the settings icon.  From there, you can either type "default app" in the search box and select "Choose a default app for each protocol" or navigate there manually by clicking "Apps", then "Default apps", then "Choose default apps by protocol".
From here, scroll down until you find the "CALLTO" and "TEL" protocols, and simply click "Choose a default" to the right.  From this list, simply select AlphaDrive to set the default.

Configuring the Click to Call Script

Once the above is done, you need to configure the script that will be run when you click on a phone number.  To provide the script, go to AlphaDrive > Settings and selected "Click to Call" as shown below.  If you are an IT administrator, you can provide your own script or you may use one of our pre-built scripts below.
Once configured, when someone clicks on a link such as:
<a href="tel:555-555-5555">Call Me</a>

Your script will automatically be prepended with a line such as:
$PhoneNumber = "555-555-5555"

and then it will be executed using Microsoft PowerShell.  This gives you a great deal of flexibility when configuring how AlphaDrive will interact with your phone product.
