    As soon as he walks through the door, I'll have him call you.

    Hello

    As soon as he walks through the door, I'll have him call you.

    Do you use "walk through the door" to mean "get (back) to the office"?

    Thank you.

    You could use it like that.

    Yes.

    The expression emphasizes that you'll have him call you "as soon as" - immediately.

    It's stronger than simply saying "as soon as he gets back". But when?

    As soon as he walks through the door, I'll have him call you. Great! Thanks!
