Skype for business , office 365

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2019-11-18
We have mailboxes in office 365 and AD accounts are synced through AAD server to office 365
All users when opening outlook also open Skype for business
As Skype for business shows last name, first name which is pulled from global address book , I see one name with first name and last name instead
I was wondering that the user in question has personal contact on his iPhone with first and last name

Is it possible this contact is syncing to Skype or can we stop this or there can be any other reason

*Your* contacts might contain a different entry for this user, but if you are syncing from on-prem there is no way for the end user to override this info. The other option that comes to mind is that it's a cloud-created user.


We are syncing from on premise AD and in GAlL it says his last name and first name. But in Skype it shows his first and last name  is it coming from one of his contacts from his phone


User is created in on premise AD and is syncing to office 365
