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.

Should I upgrade to the newest SKYPE?  The only reason I will is if the internals are better, better clearer communications, new useful features, etc.  I've gotten calls from the clients saying that they got the new SKYPE and it messed up things for them. Than I have to get on and make it usable. I think it's stupid to arbitrarily change user interfaces.  It has always pissed me off.  There's still many older users who depend on these  programs in their day to day life. Screwing around with interfaces  makes more  difficult for them.  Having said this, is there a reasonable technical reason to upgrade.  I ask since I've been getting messages on my current SKYPE about communications problems.  I'm running Windows 10 Pro on a Optiplex XE2 desktop with two monitors, 32 GB of RAM, a 500 GB Samsung 850 SSD and I5-4570S CPU.
Thanks,
Al

call 4 phone numbers at the same time.
Only 4 not 400. Not looking for an enterprise solution.


Maybe something that combines with google voice or skype.
Want to use windows 10 computer and regular headset.
Ideally no additional hardware but if hardware is needed for 4 phone numbers then

I'm using Skype For Business 16.13.184 on Mac OS 10.13.2

We are testing out Skype for Business with our Office 365 Business Premium license and the first thing I noticed is I cannot paste an Image from the clipboard into the chat. I can Attach an Image, but thats more work if I'm sending screen shots.   Seems to work on Windows.

hi we have a hybrid Office 365 environment

Skype is working fine for users, there is a small amount at present

Created a new account, migrated to office365 and email can be sent to it etc

However when try to use Skype for Business login, get error  Error " Skype for Business couldn't find a Skype for Business Server for Domain.com, There might be an issue with the Domain Name System (DNS) configuration for your domain. Please contact support .... " 

All i see are DNS fixes, yet it works fine for my login, using E1 with the test account

Any ideas?

With monday.com’s project management tool, you can see what everyone on your team is working in a single glance. Its intuitive dashboards are customizable, so you can create systems that work for you.

I need to add dial in numbers for conference calls for my organization within Office 365.

We also need to make sure that whenever a user schedules a Skype meeting within Outlook 2016 (through Office 365) that the dial in numbers will appear below the "Join Skype Meeting" section of the calendar invitation (see the screenshot).

How can this be done?

We have migrated ALL of our SfB On Prem users to the Cloud, Online. Question: Will new AD users, after being synchronized to the Cloud and given the proper E3 license with SkB Online enabled, have the same functionality as the users who were migrated from SkB On Prem to SfB Online?


Also, once all users are homed Online, is it necessary to continue to have SfB External DNS records point to our On Prem SkB Edge Servers? (We are currently still using PBX On Prem)

Hi

In our organization we use Starleaf Breeze for videoconference. However, we also have Skype for business online as part of our Office365 Enterprise E3 license.

However, when using Skype for business we cannot call external partners. In the Office365 admin center, under Skype for business, we have enabled open federation, but still we cannot call anyone outside our organization.

If i call a test site like 0262463194@csiro.au with our Starleaf Breeze client, the call is immediately successful. But if i call the same number with Skype for Business, the call just ends in a "0262463194@csiro.au was not found"

What am i missing here?

Everything I've found on the Internet so far seems to indicate that there's no way to change my Skype display or username. None of the instructions seem to apply to the version of Skype I'm running – which I believe is the latest. Before I consider scrapping my current account and/or creating a new one, I just wanted to make sure I didn't have any other options.

I've had a Skype account for many years, but haven't used it in the last couple. The other day I tried launching it, but it wouldn't work!? I noticed an icon on the desktop labeled, "SkypeSetup." So, I decided to try it. Unfortunately, my efforts have been in vain.

When I double-click the SkypeSetup icon on the desktop, I get the following:

Skype-installation-I.png
After clicking on the "I agree – next" button, I get the following dialogue:

Skype-installation-II.png
And a few more seconds of the same…

Skype-installation-III.png
Shortly thereafter, the process terminates with the following error:

Skype-installation-IV.png
After I click the OK button, I get the following dialogue:

Skype-installation-V.png
Assuming I can rectify the problem by removing the current installation of Skype, I open Control Panel, click on "Uninstall a program," and select Skype from the list of programs. When I click on "Uninstall," I get the following dialogue:

Skype-installation-VI.png
After clicking the "Yes" button, I get the following dialogue:

Skype-installation-VII.png
After a few seconds, I get the following dialogue:

Skype-installation-VIII.png
When I click the OK button, I get the following:

Skype-installation-IX.png
When I click the OK button, I get the following message:

Skype-installation-X.png
When I navigate to the ProgramData\Skype folder, I find the following…

Skype-installation-VIII-a.png
It appears as though there are two MSI files in that folder, including the one to which the uninstaller defaults. I've tried selecting each, but neither one will run. I'm not sure where to go from here.

I'm running a test network at the moment. So it is all separate from the main network. I have setup Windows Server 2016 and I want to set it up with messaging? The business I'm at isn't using a domain.  I figured if I can test it and set it up and connect to a few test clients then I'll roll it out slowly into the new year. I also have 4 static ip's I can use. I want to setup the test server with one.

The organization is about 60 users and i'm looking for a free or super cheap way to accomplish this. I think Skype for business costs money. Id like to ideally setup exchange and then Skype. Mainly my interest is a messaging client? with out being on a domain I realize I cant lock or change the user but each user has access to our current server. I can always install it on each profile.

This is somewhat new to me, I'm looking for any suggestions.

My other issue is with a static ip. I have ISP > Netgear R8000 > Rosewill Switch > Patch Panel ( 5  statics). I have tried to setup a router with no DHCP and also with DHCP to my test server so I can set it up with a static ip but no dice. When i plug it into the R8000 no link, the light just stays amber. The switch wont do anything. The linksys router using a 10. private ip. I was plugging it into the switch and then the R8000 which only supports one static ip. That current static ip is being used by the users.

Hi,
We've recently noticed a problem that started happening.
We have former employees who's emails are attached to another users mailbox so that they can get the emails the former employees. Because our policy states that their mailboxes must be removed and archived.

The users will turn into the former employee in Skype, and Exchange, even though the email used is the correct email. while in SharePoint if you hover over them it shows the proper user name but the contact is the other users information.

Is there anyway to fix this? we have tried applying patches and updates. It might have been happening before but recently we have had a lot of departures.
