Hi,

I've come across the option within Teams / Under my Profile / Settings / Notifications / Chat with Skype for Business

What will this do exactly? this is currently set to 'Disabled' 

When I 'Enable' it restarts Teams. When going back into this option, the selection has reverted back to 'Disabled'?

Hi David, this will allow you to communicate between a user in Teams chat with someone who is on Skype for Business in the same tenant. I put together a short blog post about this a few months ago http://www.graham-walsh.com/2017/10/microsoft-teams-and-skype-for-business/

Cheers

Graham

So that doesn't actually address the issue. That just discusses that you should be able to chat with S4B users. I am also having the same issue where the toggle flip from "disable" to "enable" wont stay. I think I will open a ticket and see if they can fix it. I have used that before with another org so I know it works so it has to be a setting limiting it.
