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.

I've just moved to a home office from a real-office and one challenge I face is 3-way calling.  I don't have to do this often, but about once / month or so I need to have a 3 way call.  Normally I use WebEx with VOIP.

I have a Skype account with a phone # (for calls in) and I can dial 1 third-party by #, but I can't find any way to call 2 other people by #.  The closest (and only) videos on youtube are all about using contacts.  These people are not my contacts and I'm not interested in creating some "fake" contacts and constantly changing their # to do this (if that even works).

Is there a way to simply dial-up one person via Skype and then dial-up another?  I can't find it.

Hi

I want to add another domain to office 365, but only for Skype for Business.
In the old admin center i could choose the domain purpose, in the new admin center theres no such option.
I can see in exchange online that the domain is listed as authoritative. How can i change that? It causes trouble because the domain that use exchange and skype gets an error when emailing the domain thats only supposed to use Skype, because the domain is listed as authoritative in exchange

Thanks

Hello everyone.

We have a an existing user who asked for his account to be renamed to his full name which is more than 22 characters.

The PreWindows 2000 logon name does not accept more than 22 so they last two letters of his username are not included and it is causing a mismatch with the SIP address and people cannot find him when they search on Skype.

Any ideas of how to fix this issue?

Would deleting the account in AD all together and recreating it fix the issue?

Thank you for your help in advance.

Hi
I have mail hosting on 3rd party and i want to setup only Skype for business online services with O365  and no changes to the email hosting for now.
i have domain in O365 and it shows DNS errors. O365 asks to point the NS records to Office 365 (ns1.bdm.microsoftonline.com) by going to my DNS Host provider.
At the moment my NS records point to my 3rd party mail hosting.

i think if i change the NS records pointing to O365, all the emails go to O365

there is a MX Record i can see in O365:
MX 0 @                mycompanyname01c.mail.protection.outlook.com

should i delete this before i point the NS records to ns1.bdm.microsoftonline.com in my DNS Host provider

Hi experts,

Prior to Microsoft's purchase of Skype or at least a change in their policy, I was able to simply contact support after clearing out any personal information and ask for the account to be deleted. While it was a pain to have to contact support and have to answer the obligatory "Can you tell me why you are leaving," to which I generally type No and the fact that it seemed to take forever, it didn't seem to cause any lasting effects.

The last time I tried to cancel a Skype account and after researching it online for at least an hour, I found that you can do it yourself. But, there are these ominous warnings that since it is connected to your Microsoft email, you will lose any Microsoft accounts corresponding to that email address. Or something like that. It was rather vague, hence the reason I am asking.

Is there an easy way to delete your account without causing any issues with your Microsoft default email?

Thanks.

Restored the HP Stream 11 back to factory. Windows 8 Added user and tried to connect to a Microsoft account, as well as tried to set up Skype.  Get error " sorry, we couldn't connect to Microsoft services right now." Internet is working fine, windows is activated. Look up many forums and other people having the issue but no one has found any solutions to get it working.

I have installed skype for business (office 365) on a domain computer/user.
I can send invitation to external users and they can join the video conf. via the link.

However:
- When I add the skype for business user to the contact list on a skype (windows 10) or skype app the skype for business does not get the notification that someone added it to their contact list
- Adding the external skype user to the contacts in skype for business, neither side can see the other's status
- attempting to initiate a call from either direction to the other fails

Hi all,

We are looking to install Skype for Business POC (On premise) and want to know if we will be able to take advantage of conducting meetings across Skype. Im confused with terminology and all the version differences. So basically one of the features we would like to take advantage of is to be able to conduct meetings with audio/video and file sharing.


Can anyone shed some light?

Our workstations are running Windows 7, Office 2013.  We use Office 365 for our emails.

We want to install lync or skype for a group of computer to use.  I understand Office pro plus comes with Lync.  In the interim, we want to install lync/skype individually for a group of managers before Office is changed to pro plus which will happen later.  

Someone please suggest a link to download?

Several weeks ago I was surprised to get a Skype call from a relative who was traveling overseas. My surprise was not due to the fact that she was calling, but that Skype was running. I had not started Skype, nor have I ever configured Skype to start automatically at system startup! I thought it was just an anomaly, only to discover several weeks and at least as many reboots later that Skype was still indicating that I was online!!? When I check the usual places (the taskbar, etc.) I am not finding any indications that Skype is running. When I checked the services list, the only thing I am saying is the Skype updater. Does anyone have an idea what the heck is going on? I do not want Skype running unless I expressly permit it!!

I have a client with a Windows 10 PC and a brand new Microsoft Webcam.

The issue is in Skype.  When we make a video call out, the webcam works perfectly.  However if someone video calls in Skype comes up saying it cannot detect the webcam.
In Tools, Option, Video settings, the webcam displays fine.  Audio and Video works.

When someone calls in It comes up saying Skype cannot detect the webcam.  It also says another application is using the webcam.

I have tried:
Uninstalling Skype and reinstalling.
Turn off AVG Free
Stopped the Viber app on the computer which was also using starting at startup.

No luck.  Still the same result.  Outgoing video calls are fine.  Incoming video calls cannot use the webcam?

Any ideas?

Hi All,

Can anyone here please suggest how to do the 24x7 Skype conference call between two remote office location?

At the moment I'm using Free Skype to show the two meeting room from different cities so that they can just walk in and then arrange the time to discuss without having to contact IT to dial in the other meeting room PC.

But the problem with Free Skype is that you cannot leave the connection running for 24x7 or schedule it so that after the PC reboot, it automatically dials the other meeting room.

My requirements:
24x7 audio & video call between two computer with Webcam in two different cities.
automatically re-establish the connection if it is disconnected.

Does Skype For Business can do this or even the Free Skype can be scripted?

Hello:

Here on my Windows 7 Professional laptop, which is of the Dell Inspiron 15 "5000 Series", I "connect" with a client of mine  through the Skype Meeting App.

Twice now in the past three weeks, my laptop has locked up during a meeting to the point where I have to embarrassingly reboot my laptop.

I don't know what version of the Skype Meeting App that my client uses.  But, is there a Windows Update or something along those lines that can be placed on my laptop to prevent this locking up?

On rare occasions, his laptop locks up, also.  And, my own laptop here is brand new.

In any case, what can be done?

Thank you!

John

On my cell phone , I log into Skype using my work credentials, so I can stay attuned of uptime issues that occur off hours. So when someone Skypes me on my personal Skype, I only see it if I log into my PC.

Is there a way to resolve this? Or can Skype email me when a message is sent to me?

Thanks

I want to use Skype for Business Client under Proxy. In my environment i have proxy & I want my Skype for Business client to use that proxy to connect to the internet where the Skype for Business server is published.
Would like to know what ports will be used by Skype. By default Proxy & the internet firewall is opened for only 80 & 443.
Would like to know will this be sufficient or any additional ports will be required on Proxy & firewall for skype for business client to work.

Hi,

Just in the process of migrating from exchange 2010 to O365.
With our E3 plan we get access to Skype for business, I have found so users can login to Skype for business some can not, after investigating I discovered in the past we had a lync server but as no one used it so the VM was deleted without any uninstall so some users have values in AD for

msRTCSIP-DeploymentLocator
msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled
msRTCSIP-InternetAccessEnabled
msRTCSIP-OptionFlags
msRTCSIP-PrimaryHomeServer
msRTCSIP-PrimaryUserAddress
msRTCSIP-UserEnabled
msRTCSIP-UserPolicies
msRTCSIP-UserRoutingGroupId

Can I just clear these settings?

We have E1 and E3 licenses, after migrating user mailboxes to Office 365, we need to run a script to assign the account an E1 or E3.

Since we are in a Hybrid environment, we are running into the issue where users are getting assigned a full E3 or E1 which green-lights all ServicePlans.

We have been running:

Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName UPN@domainname.com -UsageLocation US
Set-MsolUserLicense -UserPrincipalName UPN@domainname.com -AddLicenses "TENANT1:ENTERPRISEPACK"


What would the command look like if we want to greenlight all ServicePlans EXCEPT MCOSTANDARD (Skype for Business)?
Because by enabling Skype for Business, its causing issues where users have duplicate attributes in O365 and On-Prem and causing some confusion.

We want to enable the MCOSTANDARD ServicePlan when we start migrating users to S4B Online at a later date.

Has anybody been able to get the Sony EVI-D70 camera work with Skype on either a Windows or Mac?  I have tried the Startech SVID2USB23 and the Hauppauge USB-LIVE2 adapters using both S-Video and Composite video...no luck.  Skype will not pick up the camera.  It recognizes both adapters but won't connect to the video.  If I try the same camera with Google Hangouts, Webex, GoToMeeting and Join.Me, all those services find the camera with no problems using either adapters.  I have tried changing the webcam settings, downloading obscure drivers, etc., and nothing works.  I have tried Win 7, 8 and 10...no luck.  Mac OS 9 and 10...no luck.  If I call Sony, they say they are not responsible for Skype.  If I call Skype, they say they have a list of approved webcams on their site.  If you are using a non-approved webcam, they cannot help.

Please advise.

I'm currently trying to build our skype edge server, but i'm having issues requesting an internal CA from our CA server. I keep getting this message when submitting for one.

"Your Request Id is 150. The disposition message is "Denied by Policy Module 0x80094800, The request was for a certificate template that is not supported by the Active Directory Certificate Services policy: WebServer/CASCBAP189WebServer-3yr. ".

Do I need to user a different template? or crate a new one?

I was able to get our external cert fine, but can't for internal.

Is there another template for skype within the CA?
