How do I create my own Call Me button?

The Call Me button is a widget that enables you to embed your ooVoo link in your email signatures and websites.

The  Call Me button is created using HTML code. When you create the button and go to copy it to either an email or a website, the place where you paste it must accept HTML code. If it does not, you will only succeed in copying the picture - without the links.

 

If your email is forwarded by others, it's possible that your link will not work in the forwarded messages if the other email applications are not setup to support HTML.

 

  1. Create your Call Me button by clicking here.
  2. Enter your ooVoo ID or email and password in the fields. You can also sign in with Facebook.
  3. Select the button design you want to use.
  4. The Call Me button will generate HTML code for you to paste in your website or add to your email signature:

 

To add your Call Me button to your web page:

  • Copy the HTML code and paste it into your web page.

To add your Call Me button for Yahoo and Gmail:  

Yahoo and Gmail do not accept HTML code in the recurring signature space, so you cannot embed a Call Me button there. You can use the Call Me button in Yahoo and Gmail by adding it to the bottom of any email via copy/paste:

  • Complete the above steps to retrieve your HTMl and save it to your computer.
  • Open the saved signature HTML file using your web browser. Right click on any area OTHER THAN THE PICTURE (the white area is best). Choose Select All to highlight the entire link. Right click on the highlighted link and select Copy. Then Paste at the bottom of your Yahoo or Gmail email and send it. The link will be active for the person who receives it!
