we used to have earlier skye for business and outlook 2016 opening almost at same type as skype was set to auto luanch

we disabled skype from auto launching and users now first open outlook and the launch skype .

the problem almost all users are happening noe :

when login screen for outlook comes, earlier under username email address of the user use to get displayed now only username is getting displayed

everytime user launches outlook 2016, users have to change their username to email address and the put password and outlook launches.

is this problem happening because skype is not launching and outlook is not getting the email address from skype

Earlier when I used to open outlook 2016 I used to get out login prompt which under default username users email address used to populate

But when I disabled Skype auto launch

Now when users log in to outlook prompt it gives user UPN instead of email address

Does it mean outlook is not pulling the address book  from Skype?

Now that Skype no longer allows a customized voicemail greeting, I'm looking for an alternative.

I have a Skype Number that I'll port over to the new system, so it needs to accept incoming calls on that number. Other than that all I really care about is voicemail. Skype cost me about $100 a year for the number + my plan, and I'd sure like to stick around that price range.

Any ideas?

Hi Experts,

I have two questions I was hoping to get clarification on.  I have a hybrid coexistence to Office 365 with adconnect and exchange online.  I've migrated all of my mailboxes to exchange online.

1.  If I remove a license to an existing remote mailbox, what is the time this goes into the recycle bin and is un-recoverable?  Is it 30 days from the creation date of the account, or mailbox creation, or a flat time period?

2.  From the Office portal, in Reports > Usage > Active Users > Office 365 > Active Users - I'm exporting a list of users for the last 90 days in trying to determine no activity.  This gives me "Last Activity Dates" for:
Exchange Last Activity Date      
OneDrive Last Activity Date      
SharePoint Last Activity Date      
Skype For Business Last Activity Date      
Yammer Last Activity Date      
Teams Last Activity Date

My purpose is to remove the licenses that are not being used.  If I removed a license for an account with no activity in the past 90 days across these modalities, would this include just those applications, or word, excel, powerpoint, etc as well?

Does anyone know the algorithm used to measure exchange activity?  Is it just sent and receive metrics?

Thank you

Hello,

When I first tried Microsoft Team, there was an option for me to receive a voice call on my office phone after I joined the meeting.  

I do not see that option anymore.  

The only voice option I have is to find a computer with a microphone and speaker to join the meeting.  

Does anyone know if Microsoft has taken away the voice call on phone option?

Thanks.

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

Skype for business online not syncing all the users.  So we had a SFB 2015 on premise server that we wanted to phase out after moving to O365.  It appears any user that was active in on prem server, doesn't show up in SFBO dashboard and vice versa, if the users were created but not enabled in SFB on prem, they show up in dashboard.  I want to remove the on prem service all together, can i simply uninstall or do i need to go through and disable all users first.  Then how do I get them to resync with O365. The reason t his came up is can't get the audio conferencing license to apply to these users...they apply but it doesn't give them a number. I've tracked it down to being the hybrid type solution. Which we run for exchange but nothing was setup for the on prem SFB

Hi Team.

In our SfB Topology i just added a new site and builed a new Skype For Business Enteprise Pool.

It's at the moment a Pilot infrastructure but so far the Front End Server is up, Persistent Chat and we use temporary a Lync 2013 Edge Server as I've few Networking issue with the sfB Edge server.

My problem is that I can't expand Distribution Groups anymore in SfB. when I'm trying to do this I'm getting following error:
Cannon use the distribution group service because the service address is incorrect, although the service is available. Contact your support team with this information.

I tried already to clear the cache on my local PC, I tried to delete the group and re-add it. If i choose the Contact Card that looks fine.

Any idea?

I'm trying to figure out which user we should use for Skype videoconferencing in out meeting and conference rooms.  All users have an Office 365 business premium account.  Note: We're not using roaming profile on the AD network.  

When a user send a Skype meeting invitation, then days later he'll go in the meeting room where our Atlona SW-510W is used with a Yamaha video camera and speaker and mic bar on the wall.  The PC is connected to the TV.

The user will use the PC that is already in the meeting room, not his laptop most of the time.  

This PC has a default user (the name of the meeting room.

If the user uses the default user (it's easier he doesn't have to login, find icons and everything and office 365 is already activated but not with the user account but with the meeting room account (which is a full o365 account not a equipment account)  Most users are trying to find the reunion, not realizing (even if they should know we have told them but some will forget, or they're in a hurry and so on) they have to login on o365 with their own users.

And most of the time they don't have much time.  

So I think it would be easier if each user would use their own account.  But they will have to activate O365, and O365 cannot be activated on more than 5 PC.  If they visit 20 meeting rooms in a year I don't think they can activate as many O365 on different PCs

QUESTION: what is the most commun way to use skype or any other conferencing tool in a meeting or …

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.
