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.

Just after setting up Cloud PBX connectivity and migrated Skype users to SFBO, we noticed inbound calls not working but outbound calls would work.

The Lifecycle Approach to Managing Security Policy
The Lifecycle Approach to Managing Security Policy

Managing application connectivity and security policies can be achieved more effectively when following a framework that automates repeatable processes and ensures that the right activities are performed in the right order.

If Skype for Business came with your office 2016 or office 365 installation, you may find that it's almost impossible to either disable or remove it. The application will often launch with each start of Windows, even when explicitly configured not to do so.

I followed the instructions exactly including the edit for x64 bit.  (It did take quite a while for the download to finish)
Was told I needed to uninstall my Microsoft Office 2016 Pro Plus x64.  
I did the uninstall the usual way (and I kept the command window open while doing this so I could continue following the instructions after the uninstall finished)
Then what was installed was Microsoft Office 365 and it did not ask about closing Skype for Business as the instructions suggested it would.
I tried putting my Office license key back in.  Office said the key was for the desktop version not 365, but then proceeded to use the key to activate the installed software as the fully paid desktop version.
I rebooted and there was NO Skype for Business hassel that had been there before.
So I think everything is ok :-)
Thank you !!

This is a great solution but did anyone notice other features go missing? Namely, the voice dictation feature in Word (picture of microphone toward the right) and the LinkedIn Resume Assistant under the Review tab in Word.

Edit: Updated Office and those features are back. Thank you!
