You can transfer ANY inbound Skype call from a Skype name or from your Online Number(s) to another Skype name or telephone number.
If you are going to transfer a call to a telephone number and that telephone number is covered by a subscription you have, it will be at no cost, otherwise it will be at normal Skype rates and also it will include a connect fee.
NOTE: Be very careful if you are going to transfer a call to a telephone number that will use your subscription. If you have an unlimited subscription, because if the transferred call becomes a long one, it could cause you to go over your daily subscription limits.
Even the subscription monitor below will not be able to stop that because once you transfer a call you have no ability to end it, so if it goes on for hours that could cause a subscription daily limit violation of the 360 minute daily limit maximum for unlimited subscriptions only.
If you would also like a FREE subscription monitor that will monitor your subscription usage in real-time please click here as well:
If you are going to transfer a call to a Skype name, it will be at no cost.
This example Call Transfer Program will route any failed Call Transfers to your Skype Voicemail, if you have Skype Voicemail automatically.
For people that run a business and use Skype for communications internally, or people who have Skype call Links to their Skype names on web pages for example, this can be a very handy program, and it's FREE!
Outside callers might have clicked on a link on a web page to call their business Skype names, calls can be routed to one Skype name using this example, and then a person, or multiple persons, logged on as that Skype Name, using this Call Transfer Example program can transfer these inbound calls to the proper department in that company.
How Easy is it really to use this for Call Routing in a Company?
Very Easy, a Business can create Custom Groups on Skype, and add Skype names, or SkypeOut phone numers in each custom group, Say you create a group for Sales, Customer Support, Billing. All these calls can come into the same Skype Name, which mutiple people can be logged on as, and mutiple people can use this Call Transfer example program, by simply clicking on the Custom Group Name, and selecting a Skype Name from that Group and then Click the Transfer Button. Of course there are many additional features as well as automatic transfers.
Could You Please Explain all the Features of This?
Sure let's start from the Top Down:
Active Inbound Call Window:
This window displays ALL Inbound calls to a Skype name, even calls from phones to your SkypeIn telephone number, of course at this time, you can't transfer those, but using this program, you can still answer any inbound calls including these calls.
You can also place any inbound call on hold, resume calls, and end any inbound calls from this program.
If there are multiple inbound calls in progress you need to select which call in this window you are going to take an action on. If a inbound call in this window can be transferred, then the Transfer Button will be available, if the call selected cannot be transferred, then the Transfer Button will not be available when that call is seleted from this window.
Last Call Status Window
This window displays the last call status of any inbound call received, it is important to not that this Call Transfer Example program, does NOT show any information abotu outbound calls at this time.
This window can show ALL groups defined for the Skype name in question, There are many Hardwired Groups, which normally do not show on the Skype Client. This Window can display all Groups including Custom Groups. Some Groups maybe empty, however, that could change as Skype users, go offline and online.
It also should be noted, that there is no automatic refresh for if a user goes offline for example, at the moment, so you can click on a group name to refresh the current online contacts in that group as often as you wish. This will provide a fresh view of what contacts are online since you selected the current group you are looking at.
Show All Hardwired Groups Check Box
This checkbox allows you to toggle at any time from important Skype Groups you may need to do transfers including your Custom Groups to All Groups. In many cases, you may need only a limited amount of Skype Groups and Your Custom Groups, but in some cases, if you are using this for business for example, you may need from time to time an ability to transfer to any an all Skype contacts. You can toggle this checkbox to see how it funtions.
Auto Transfer Check Box
This checkbox when checked, will disable the transfer button, and automatically, transfer any Skype to Skype call to the Skype Name or Phone Number selected in the Select from Avaliable Contacts window, that is currently selected or if any Skype Name or Phone Number is currently present in the Or Enter One Skpe Name or Phone # window, that will override the current selected item in the Select from Avaliable Contacts window.
So, it is important to CLEAR the Or Enter One Skpe Name or Phone # window of any text if you wish too use the Select from Avaliable Contacts window item that is currenly selected.
Enable Silent Mode Check Box
Many people do not know about this feature, it is not availabe in the Skype Client options, currently, and is only available programatically. What it basically does it put ALL Skype Windows to Sleep, until you click the Skype Icon and wake the Skype Client up again. This is a very handy feature, if you are using this program to manually answer Skype inbound calls, and wish to not have windows open up for each call as you are doing so. This allows you to control answering Skype inbound calls using this program only. Currently there is a slight delay when this box is checked, this is a known problem, and Skype is working to resolve this. Again, once Silent Mode is invoked, you can wake up the Skype Client window at anytime by simply clicking on the Skype Icon in your system toolbar.
Select From Available Contacts Window
This window ONLY displays Skype users that are Online, or SkypeOut numbers you have in your contacts. There is a good reason for this, odds are pretty good, you don't want to tranfer a call to the Marketing Custom group you created, if the person is NOT Online, so this is an easy way to see who in what groups are currently available, but also includes any SkypeOut phone numbers you have for any group as well.
In the event you do still wish to transfer a call to someone not online, or even a phone number not currently in your contact list, simply enter that Skype Name or Phone number in the Or Enter One Skype Name or Phone # window, and click the transfer button for that call, you can also do this with the Auto transfer feature as well.
Show Handle Check Box
As most Skype users know, sometimes it can be hard to determine whom is whom, in your contact list, a great example is when you add a Phone Number and assign a name, you might forget where that number is located, also so Skype Users display names are far from what their real Skype user name is, so this checkbox can be used at anytime to toggle contact names in the group currently listed to see Skype Phone Numbers and Skype User handles when needed.
Save Settings Check Box
This is a very handy feature if you are always using this program to transfer to the same Skype Name or Phone Number, this way everytime you start this program it remembers what you did last time.
It is very important to note again, that IF there is text for a Skype Name or Number in the Or Skype Name(s) or Phone #(s) With Comma, that overrides any current Skype Name or SkypeOut phone number currently selected in the Select From Available Contacts Window. If the Or Skype Name(s) or Phone #(s) With Comma area is empty when you have Save Settings checked, the current Skype Name of SkypeOut Phone Number selected in the From Available Contacts Window will be saved and placed in the Or Enter One Skype Name or Phone Number window when the program is restarted.
Current Options saved when the Save Settings checkbox is checked are:
Show All Hardwired Groups
Enable Silent Mode
Current Selected Contact Or Text from the Or Enter One Skype Name or Phone Number Window.
Or Skype Name(s) or Phone #(s) With Comma
Any combination of one or more Skype Name(s) or phone number(s) separated with commas will override any current Skype Name or Skype Number currently selected in the Select From Available Contacts Window. If you use mutiple entries here then the first one to answer the transferred call will get it.
Phone numbers in this window should start with a +followed by country code, area code, and number.
If you are confused about phone number format in this window, and you already have some SkypeOut Numbers in your contact list, simply select the SkypeOut Groups from the Groupm window, which you can see if the Show Hardwired Groups checkbox is checked, and also check the Show Handle checkbox, this will show you are phone numbers should be formatted in this window.
In the U.S., one example would be +13125551212 as a valid formatted phone number.
This button will only be available when you have a inbound call selected from the Active Inbound Calls window that can be transferred. When manually transferring calls, unlike whe the program does the transfer of calls automatically, if a call fails, due to say for example of trying to transfer the Skype Name caller to a phone number, and it fails because they have no credit to make this call, the call is returned and you are allowed to answer it.
If you have Skype Voice Mail and the Auto Transfer checkbox is check, then the call will automatically be routed to Voicemail.

This links allows you to register for addtional Skype services, once you start to see how well this program works, you may wish to purchase addtional Skype services.
Work In Progrss
As you can see this Call Transfer Example for Skype program can be very useful, for both individuals and companies, the important point is, transferred calls are NO cost to the user of this program, if the telephone number(s) the call is transferrred to is normally covered by a subscription or the call is being transferred to Skype name(s)..
An Easy Way to play with this if you only have one computer, is to enter echo123 in the Or Enter One Skype Name or Number window, then check the Auto Transfer checkbox. Do a Switch Users to another Windows User, and logon Skype as another Skype Name, then call the Skype Name that is running the Call Transfer Program and you will notice, you get echo123 when You call that name, not the Skype user you called. You can do this without having any Skype Credits.
If you have Skype credits or are on a Skype plan, make sure you use that Skype Name to call the other Skype Name and try setting the Or Enter One Skype Name or Number window to say your cell phone, or another phone. You can see that your call is in fact transferred to the phone number in question.

Many people think that since version 4.0 of the Skype Windows Client does not have "Public Chat" support, that it now is impossible to place links on your web site, blog or in your emails to invite others to Skype chats you have created.
I am here to tell you, this is NOT true, and better yet. I will show you how to do it and the links to your chats will work for people that have older Skype versions, as well as Linux and Mac Skype versions.
You can turn any Skype chat into an easily found one using links on web pages, in blogs and in your emails by following these instructions. If the chat is already created, simply skip the chat creations steps and follow the rest of these instructions.
First You will need to create a Skype group chat, you can do that by using the Skype 4.X Windows Client:
Contacts -> Create New Group
The Default name of the Group will be "Emtpy Group" you can change the name of this group chat by simply entering in the group chat window you just created as you would do when you send any chat message, enter the text below and then send the command:
Of course you can use the Skype chat window and change the text and add or change a picture for the Skype group chat you just created as well.
If you want to protect the topic text and any picture you assign to this Skype group chat from being modified by anyone but you, the creator, you can do this by simply entering in the group chat window you just created as you would do when you send any chat message, enter the text below and then send the command:
/set options +TOPIC_AND_PIC_LOCKED_FOR_USERS
You will now need to determine what options your group chat will support:
JOINING_ENABLED When this bit is off, new users cannot join the chat.
JOINERS_BECOME_APPLICANTS When this bit is on, new users will be able to join the chat but they will be unable to post or receive messages until authorized by one of the chat administrators (CREATOR or MASTER).
JOINERS_BECOME_LISTENERS When this bit is on, new users will be able to receive message in chat but unable to post until promoted to USER role. Basically a read-only flag for new users.
HISTORY_DISCLOSED When this bit is off, newly joined members can see chat history prior to their joining. Maximum amount of history backlog available is either 400 messages or 2 weeks of time, depending on which limit is reached first.
USERS_ARE_LISTENERS Read-only flag for chat members with USER role.
TOPIC_AND_PIC_LOCKED_FOR_USERS When this bit of options is off, USER level chat members can change chat topic and the topic picture.
To turn on any of these chat options above simply enter in the group chat window you just created as you would do when you send any chat message, enter the text below and then send the command:
/set options +JOINERS_BECOME_APPLICANTS
or to remove the chat option
/set options -JOINERS_BECOME_APPLICANTS
You can even set a password to join your chat if you desire. Simply enter in the group chat window you just created as you would do when you send any chat message, enter the text below and then send the command:
/set password [text]
No spaces are allowed in the password. You can also provide a hint about the password, so that people who may forget might remember if they see the password hint. Simply enter in the group chat window you just created as you would do when you send any chat message, enter the text below and then send the command:
/set password_hint [text]
You can set the password and the password hint at the same time. Simply enter in the group chat window you just created as you would do when you send any chat message, enter the text below and then send the command:
/setpassword [password] [password hint]
If people want to see what the password hint is, they would simply enter in the group chat window you just created as you would do when you send any chat message, enter the text below and then send the command:
To show at anytime what chat options are set simply enter in the group chat window you just created as you would do when you send any chat message, enter the text below and then send the command:
NOTE: If you decide to not let people post messages right away when they join your chat, or not let them join your chat before they are approved, you will need to manually change each persons role in the chat when you allow them to join or post messages in the chat or if you promote them to more than a normal user of the chat, see /set role below for more information.
All people in your chat can have roles, here are the roles each person can be assigned:
Creator Member who created the chat. There can be only one creator per chat. Only creator can promote other members to masters.
Master Also known as chat hosts. Masters cannot promote other people to masters.
Helper A semi-privileged member. Helpers will not be affected by the USERS_ARE_LISTENERS option. Helpers cannot promote or demote other members.
User Regular member who can post messages into the chat.
Listener Member can only see messages but not post anything into the chat.
Applicant A member waiting for acceptance into the chat. Member cannot be demoted to applicants once they have been accepted.
To assign specific roles to people in your chat simply enter in the group chat window you just created as you would do when you send any chat message, enter the text below and then send the command:
/setrole [Skype Name] MASTER | HELPER | USER | LISTENER
You can change the role of anyone in your chat at anytime. To see what the role of a person currently is, simply enter in the group chat window you just created as you would do when you send any chat message, enter the text below and then send the command:
/whois [Skype Name]
You now should be ready to get the link to use for your web pages, blogs or email for this new chat.
To get the link for this new group chat using a Skype for Windows Client of 4.x simply enter in the group chat window you just created as you would do when you send any chat message, enter the text below and then send the command:
Right click on the link displayed and choose "Copy Link Location"
Use that as your a href= link text
There are many many more chat commands, here are some links to more about them:
You should now be able to create as many chats as you wish, with as many different settings as you wish and provide links for people to join them, in your web pages, blogs and emails.
You also can at anytime get help for most of these commands, simply enter in the group chat window you just created as you would do when you send any chat message, enter the text below and then send the command:
If you have any questions about how to do these things or need help doing these things, please post them here.
This has nothing to do with Skype but it still is an excellent example of ALL the things you can do with NotifyIcon and the Taskbar.
Every possible combination of NotifyIcon, Taskbar, Mouse clicks, both double and single are support as well as the ability to use mutilple Context Menus, or share the same Context Menu that Form1 uses for NotifyIcon as well. Restricted Program logic as well as invisibility is supported ihn this example.
Microsoft ClickOnce Technology is used for deployment from this web site which also includes Automatic-Updates using ClickOne Technology as well.
The Project was done in Microsoft Visual C# 2008 Express Edition which is FREE. The entire project including source code is available as well as Project templates that include comments or no comments so that you can build projects from the TheNotifyIconExample.
All settings are done using Project User Properties. This example uses C# version 3.0 and .NET 3.5 (SP1) which are both the latest versions from Microsoft.
Simply Click the picture below to install TheNotifyIconExample using ClickOnce Technology. Once Installed, links are available on TheNotifyIconExample Form1. TheNotifyIconExample can be uninstalled at anytime using the Add Remove Programs Icon from your Windows Control Panel.
NotifyIconExample demonstates the Following:
1. How to start up minimized or normal with and without a NotifyIcon or Taskbar item.
2. ALL possible combinations of NotifyIcon with or without a taskbar.
3. How to make your program invisible, no NotifiyIocn, no Taskbar, at program startup.
4. How to disable Right-Click on NotifyIcon.
5. How to customize both single and double clicks left and right mouse clicks on NotifyIcon.
6. How to created restricted and totally restricted Exit logic with and without Notifyicon.
7. Dynamic Context Menu Item support.
8. How to share Context Menus with NotifyIcon and your Form.
9. How to support multiple Context Menus with NotifyIcon and Form1.
10. Microsoft ClickOnce technology for deployment and Automatic updates to your application.
I have seen many NotifyIcon examples in the past, however none of them have shown how to use project settings to support all possible combinations of NotifyIcon and Taskbar logic that is capable of being supported. Combine that with showing examples of sharing and using different Context Menus, as well as startup logic for minimized and normal form display, restrictive Exit logic, GUI invisibility and package that all up in an project template that you can use and modify for all your future projects makes this example unique.
Conflicting or overlapping project user setting logic is not included, other than setting anything that would make you accidentally invisible is avoided in this example. My suggestion is play with all the setting combinations so that you can get familiar with them and for each project you have use the
combinations of settings that applies to that project.
