ACS and Phone Calls via Teams

The ability to call a stored phone number in a PF via MS Teams from a 5250 Screen with a mouse click. Like E-Mail Addresses or Webpages.

Use Case:

Many customers has tables in the DB PF with their customer address data, like name, street, town, E-Mail, webpage, Phone numbers, etc..
Now they are migrating to phone solutions like MS teams.
So they want to start a phone call via 5250 sessions , when the address data are shown on the screen.
