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.

Hello everyone,

How can we find a user with AD id (TP3400) of that user in teams? We were able to search for any user in SKype using their AD Id.

Any response is appreciated

We have used skype for business in the past and now we are getting invited using Microsoft Teams.  I'm not sure how each of these apps work together, but ever since teams has become a part of a video conference the connection has been spotty at best.  Any ideas on what could be the issue?  I'm not sure if I'm explaining the correlation of skype and teams.  Maybe there is none.

Say, I have installed Skype on an Android Blackberry KEYONE. It has duplicated my Google Contacts, made an additional contact for Skype and many blank Google Contacts.
Is there a way to reverse this?
Is there a way to set up Skype so that it does not interface with my Google Contacts at all? I do not need it to have access to my Google Contacts.

Hi Everyone.

I need someones a opinion if someone had the chance to test it. Does skype For Business Front End Server works with Lync Edge.

The reason why I'm asking is that we are planning a Domain Migration minimizing the disturbance for users.
At the moment on Both domains have Lync 2013. As part of the migration i want to add on one site a new Site in the Topology for SfB.

Unfortunately both companies on both domains are owned by one company and they work very closely so there is no option for Federation disruption. That's why I can't for example add on the destination topology the SIP domain the Source domain users are using as this will break Federation for the Destination Domain users.

Thats why my plan is to

1. Add a new Site in the Destination Domain
2. Add a SfB servers
3. Move users using temporary a SIp address the Destination Domain owns
4. After all users will be moved add the Source Sip address to the Destination topology, together with configuring all the required External DNS records.

But when i started to write the Plan it got em thinking how I can configure the Edge Server for SfB without affecting the existing Lync environment in the Destination Domain, and not affecting the Edge server on the Source domain.
This is where I'm wondering if SfB front End server works with Lync Edge so i can use it temporary as a Bridge until all users will be moved from Source Domain and i can start repointing all External records to new server.

Hi all

I am still new to Skype for Business but I have a little question :

We gave a user a skype number on prem with the option "Enterprise Voice"
Now that user is user out and we deleted the info and set the option telephony back from "Enterprise voice" to "pc-to-pc only".

A new user starts and get the number of the old user who is user out.
This new user can call out but when others call to this number, this still reference to the old number?
How is this possible?
Will it be okay if I deleted the sip address of the old user?

Now that we have Teams,can i safely uninstall skype for business without risking of affecting anything else? It shows that it was updated yesterday but haven't used it for weeks now! I don't want to create issues to Office/Outlook/...

Why Diversity in Tech Matters

Kesha Williams, certified professional and software developer, explores the imbalance of diversity in the world of technology -- especially when it comes to hiring women. She showcases ways she's making a difference through the Colors of STEM program.

I have SfB 2015 enterprise pool without enterprise voice (not-published) and on-premises Exchange 2016.

Exchange 2016 with DAG
Frontend-Servers -  Skype for Business Enterprise Edition 2016
Office Online Server  - 1

Created DNS records in internal AD DNS including all default records.
Split-DNS brain (default domain is : axl.com),
The published domain is : abcexcel.com
Both servers VM and VDI infra is Citrix based XenDesktop and thin clients
Installed Citrix HDX software to support SFB for thin clients.

Tried the integration part as mentioned in http://lyncdude.com/2015/10/06/the-complete-skype-for-business-exchange-2016-integration-guide-part-i/index.html except DNS record part for autodiscover.abcexcel.com which does not exist and SCP is pointed to mail.abcexcel.com pointing to mail.

Do we need to add autodiscover.abcexcel.com in public certificate, and SRV and DNS records to make a successful integration. As mentioned in the article the SRV and autodiscover record is required but clients are connecting without autodiscover records in DNS. Does this works without updating the public autodiscover certificate SAN name.

Please advice.

Say, a cell phone needs to be secured to ensure that it remains tethered to a desk. It is to be used by a senior citizen who has some memory loss. The tethering device should have the following criteria: 1. not impede the use of the phone 2. preferably have a curly cord to allow for the user to bring the phone closer to them as needed  3. have a +-45 degree holder for the cell phone to be mounted on during use. The primary function is for Skype and Video chat and viewing pictures on the phone. The user is not expected to actually use the phone much. 4. the device should be obtainable either via mail order or at an outlet in South Africa. 5. this is merely a restraining cord to be attached to the device to the cellphone to keep it at the desk where it would be used.
Cost of the device is also a factor.

Hello,

I am trying to finalize the setup of our Exchange 2016/O365 Hybrid environment and I am facing a couple of issues I am unable to solve. The mainissue is that in Microsoft Teams, on-prem users have no "Meetings" tab and therefore no interaction with their on-prem calendars. The EXO user has the Meetings tab and calendar interaction as expected.

Everything points to a faulty autodiscover config, and even if it is not, I'd like to clear these errors first to pursue troubleshooting.I will be trying to give out as much information as I can. I believe all the problems come from the autodiscover configuration but I can't fix it...

INFO:
- We have two Exchange 2016 latest CU servers and an O365 Worlwide tenant
- AADConnect is installed and working fine
- Running the HCW is successful with no warning or error (reran it today, still working)
- We are not using OutlookAnywhere (and don't plan on doing so right now). The external autodiscover DNS is used for Skype for Business mobile Exchange Calendar integration. The autodiscover DNS is redirecting to an AGAT reverse proxy for SfB, which is working fine (Calendar works, and doesn't if I redirect it to a bogus IP, saying SfB can't connect to Exchange).


ISSUES:
- A couple of weeks ago I was able to migrate a test mailbox to Exchange Online. Today, when I try to run a migration, at the "Confirm the migration Endpoint" stage, I am getting a "connection to the server could not be completed error" and I can't …

OS: Windows 10 version 1803 or it could be 1809.
Office 365
Application: Skype for Business
Challenge: Skype for Business does not show the work number associated with a contact. The contact has a work number assigned to them, but Skype for Business does not consistently show the number. To rephrase this, when I try to call someone on their work number, I have to either enter the number manually, or just make a Skype call.

I did not look this up on Skype for Business Help Center, but I believe that is the first place to start

How can I configure Skype for Business to always forward all calls to a different number? For instance, I will need all Skype calls, to go to a mobile number instead of Skype.

Propose solution: Make the desired number the number that is associated with the Skype for Business account.

Hi - I was wondering if there was any way to prevent Skype messages from being deleted. There have been issues in the office where there have been inappropriate conversations, and the employees are being notified, but we're trying to find a solution moving forward where conversations cannot be deleted. I thought that there may be a GP that could be setup, but not sure - If anyone has any ideas, please let me know - thanks!

We are currently using MS Skype For Business Online.  We have experimented with Teams briefly a little over a year ago but never pursued any serious adoption of it.   However, with more S4B integration, one of the owners of the company wants to move exclusively to Teams.

It is likely there will be some push back from another owner as well as one of the VP's.  Before we get into heated discussions, is there a white paper or doc that will list what - if any - features will be lost when converting from S4B to Teams?

Hi Experts,

when we setup outlook with the onmicrosoft.com account, then we can see a problem with lync and skype.
The conversation history is not present.

Do you know a way to edit the outlook profile to get back the conversation history ?

Is there a new site for Skype Analytics? The only one I had in my bookmarks isn't working any more:

https://adminportal.services.skypeforbusiness.com/analytics

This site can’t be reached

Also - is MS Teams call quality data captured in Skype Analytics? It appears to get into MS Call Quality tool. But there's no drill-in there.

Hello,

Recently, while migrating users to office 365, those of us logged into skype started getting constant popup notifications in the lower right corner of our screen. Few users have been  got notifications when some of their contacts  become available, unavailable, go online, go offline, etc.

Looking at the settings for alerts and such, there doesn't appear to be much of any options to choose from to disable these.

Is there no way to disable them? choosing untag or ignore seems to resolving the problems

Thanks!

How do you stop Skype for Business from notifying other people that you are going online ?

https://www.auslogics.com/en/articles/skype-erupts-annoying-notifications/
Most links tell us how to stop the other party from giving you notification and NOT to stop yourself from giving others notification.

Anyone going through the same thing and found solution ?

I checked the settings but nothing on changing my notification settings.
