"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This should help unless you mean for recording all users. Link

My organization needs to automatically record Skype instant messages for all users.

How can this be done?

I believe you would need a 3rd party app to do this. Link

Isn't there a way of doing this through Office 365?

You need to record for compliance or for your own benefits?

"Isn't there a way of doing this through Office 365?"

There are ways to print out reports of usage etc., however, it is not currently possible to record Office 365 Skype for Business instant message chat conversations through Office 365 without a third party app. On another note you might need to discuss this with your HR director before recording chat conversations because in some cases you need to notify the users of this type of activity (for legal and ethical reasons).
