Skype is for doing things together, whenever you’re apart. Skype’s text, voice and video make it simple to share experiences with the people that matter to you, wherever they are.

With Skype, you can share a story, celebrate a birthday, learn a language, hold a meeting, work with colleagues – just about anything you need to do together every day. You can use Skype on whatever works best for you - on your phone or computer or a TV with Skype on it. It is free to start using Skype - to speak, see and instant message other people on Skype for example.

Share tech news, updates, or what's on your mind.

Hi,

We am looking for a camera to buy for our conference/ meeting room which will be used with Skype for business.

The conference room includes a conference table which seats 4-6 people (2 on right of table and 2 on left) and a 55 inch display mounted on a TV stand beside the wall about 4 foot from the table.

We may also need a microphone on the meeting room table for the Skype calls.

1. What would you recommend as the best camera to buy for this room?

2. Is there any other products you would recommend to use with the camera you recommended?

Thanks,
Robbie

Skype for Business - you are driving me mad! Following on from advice from here about recording Skype meetings, I went to set up a Meet Now with someone in my contact list. She was online and the message I got was :  "cannot invite X to to join this meeting". The person is using a messaging programme that does not support more than two participants"..WTF?
So what's the problem? I could do this with Pamela no problem in the old Skype? Thanks.

Working on transitioning our employees to be remote workers.  We want to have a virtualized office experience where we see and hear each other.  I tried that with Skype with on user and the video was awesome and sound was great...then after 10 minutes it crashed her computer.  So much for Skype.  Then we tried FaceTime using our phones, but the image was super grain-ey and blur-ey and sound was in and out.  

What suggestions do you guys have?  We would like good video and audio and have it done in a way that doesn't impact our workstations or tie up our office phones.

I had looked into this:

http://www.doublerobotics.com/double2.html

It's a little pricey and I don't think we need the robot maneuverability.

Anyway, I wonder about the bandwidth issue, or will that become an issue?  I am not sure what crashed her, but I assume Skype was hogging the internet bandwidth while she was VPN connected on her laptop and that somehow mucked the OS?

I have Skype for Business. I want to use it to record calls. When I follow the instructions as per Microsoft I don't have a "Start Recording" option as per their article. I have tried different settings and it's still not available. Any suggestions? Thanks

Hi,

We have a Skype account for our company.

We sign in with our company email address to access our Skype account on our Windows 10 Pro PC.

For people to get in contact with us, they usually request a Skype ID.

Our Skype ID displays as something like the following: live:" "_(numbers)

We would like to change this as it does not look professional.

How do we change the Skype Name/ID for our Skype account?

We are aware we can change the display name for the account but the Skype ID is needed for people to search for our company on Skype.

Thanks,
Robbie

I have deployed an on-premise Skype for Business server in several steps. First, I got our in-house Skype working with IM, screen sharing, and phone calls both inside and outside. Then I set up federation so we can Skype with users on our clients' networks. The client is using Office 365 Skype so I moved our on-premise users to Office 365 so we can communicate with the 365 users. Here is where the problem comes in: when I move our users to 365 they lose the ability to make outgoing calls from Skype's dial pad. We can still IM, video chat, and call the other Skype users from their Skype contacts, but can't call our own cell phones for example. We have our own PBX that we want to continue to use for making calls, but we want to integrate it back into Skype so it works like it did on-premise. Do I need a license for Phone System to do this? Is there another way to get Skype to work with the other domain besides moving users to online? I spent a couple hours on the phone with Microsoft the other day and even they don't know what licenses i need.

Is there a way to set Skype, when on auto start-up, to start minimised.
To the System tray rather than having to be minimised at splash.

We recently installed a Polycom  RealPresence Trio 8800 in one of our conference rooms.  We are currently on Office 365 with Skype For Business.  We created a generic conference room 'user account' that we have logged into the device.  The generic account has an Office 365 E3 license assigned.  However, when using Skype, we cannot access the global directory to invite other users.  Even if I log in as myself I only get my Skype Contacts but cannot get out to the Global directory.  What are we doing wrong?

The Firewall Audit Checklist
The Firewall Audit Checklist

Preparing for a firewall audit today is almost impossible.
AlgoSec, together with some of the largest global organizations and auditors, has created a checklist to follow when preparing for your firewall audit. Simplify risk mitigation while staying compliant all of the time!

My boss can project his to us screen/desktop via Microsoft Lync/Skype for Business 2015, but we cannot do the same thing. There is no option in our Lync to project our screen. We all have the same rights as far as we can tell. The same Services are activated, etc.

We do not believe the issue is with the PC. For example, my boss can screen project from his box, and when we sign in to the same box, we cannot screen project. We all have the same rights, but I am double checking this.

Hi All

We have previously had an on premise deployment of Skype for Business 2015 server, with Office 2016 deployed to our clienjts.  All, in general worked well, apart froma lot of configuration required for External access etc.

Now we have configured and begun using Office 365, and so have tested witha couple of users moving to Skype for Business Online.  I have AAD working and Im syncing all of the MS-RTC setting in the synchronization tool.  I ahve allocated licenses within Office 365 to a couple of users and one is working fine with Skype for Business Online - eg can sign in to the client and is then prompted for the "Microsoft Login" which is there work email address and normal windows based password.

However, one user is stuck on "contacting server and signing in"

That user in in the Skype for Business Online portal and appearing correctly.  I've checked settings within ADSIEdit and cant see anything different as to why it wont sign in.

It literally just stays on the message above and then fails.  The user can sign in when external to the network, via phone, external desktop etc, so I know the AAD sync is working and licensing is not an issue, but it appears as though there is some setting on their domain based desktop thats stopping them from signing into Skype for Business Online.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Skype for Business app from the desktop but this has had no affect.

Any ideas of what else I can try?

Thanks

Wanting to know about functionality and benefits/disadvantages of having multiple domains in one Office365 account.
I have a client that has several businesses, hence they have several domains. Currently only one business is using Office365 for email.
I'd like to know if there are benefits/disadvantages to having another or all domains in the same Microsoft Office365 Account.
These business do interact, but are somewhat separate, which complicates things like admin permissions.
Things that come to mind are things like, but not limited to seeing others in the GAL, calendar/contact sharing, user management, etc..

Using the Skype screensharing software when users are viewing on vastly differently sized monitors causes resolution issues. When a user with a small screen shares with a user with a large screen, the experience works well. When a user with a large screen shares with a user with a small screen, the user with the small screen can only see a very fuzzy/pixelated screen. I'm not sure whether the fix is to change the  PC's resolution (locked down) or to change the large screen user's home PC's resolution, but I'm guessing
Unfortunately, it needs to be done on an ad hoc basis back and forth depending on whether one is working by oneself or whether that person needs to share his/her screen with someone else.

Anything should I change

We are a newly migrated O365 tenant.

When I assign an E5 license with domestic calling plan to myself, I receive the message "You are not set up to use this calling feature" when trying to call another Skype for Business user within our company.

If I change my license to E3, then the call is completed without issue.

Does anyone have any ideas why that might be?

Hello Team

I have a client who has Lync 2013 On premisses and he is migrating to Office 365 . I want to know if there is any means to have an Office 365 User to add Contacts that are sitting on the On premises servers?

Is it possible and how can we achieve that?

I want to mention that the client was using this Lync 2013 just for Internal communication

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

We are just starting to use Skype For Business for Internal IM.   We have setup Skype For Business to not allow External Contacts to be added. We didn't want Employees to start chatting with Friends and Family while at work.

We are looking to get rid off WebEx for Presentations and wanted to use Skype For Business, though it looks like we can't Invite Customers to the Meetings since we blocked External Access.

Is there a Way to Block External Users for IM, though Allow Inviting External Customers for Presentations?

Thanks!

Is there a Microsoft tool for testing Skype for Business video performance?  There exists for audio NetworkAssessmentTool.ext which allows you to make hundreds of simulated skype audio calls and gain insight into network preparedness for audio. Is there any similar tool that looks at Skype for Business online video?
