Hi, I just receive info that our company Skype for business will be force upgrade to Microsoft Teams after few weeks.I do have some doubt on it as below.

 

1) Do we able to import or migrate all message/chat in skype for business to Microsoft Teams? Or it is totally empty in Teams?

 

2) We only able to auto import skype internal contact to Teams? How about the external contact? We need manually input contacts one by one in Teams?

 

3) Is it possible for Microsoft Teams business to have private chat with Microsoft Teams free? Because not all our customer using skype for business or Teams business, some of them still using skype consumer version.

 

I do test the Teams private/direct chat to external user using two trial account but it seem to have problem even though I already on the external access settings on both side.

1. No, this won’t get migrated! The Skype conversation history is still in the mailbox though!

2.external contacts was recently started to migrate over from S4b! So yes they should be there!

3. AFAIK teams free don’t support federation so I would say no if nothing changed recently!
One option is to invite them as guests in your tenant and chat with their guest accounts from teams!

4. It depends on the setup of the coexistence modes also on both sides! Describe you experience!
I believe federation between to clients in island mode will end up in Skype!

Hi,

1 - No Chat does not get migrated. Depending on your SfB Client version you can access them through your sfb client or outlook.
2 - externaly contacts get also migrated. Afterwards you can add them as well.
3 - I think this is a no. Federation to skype consumer is currently under review. but not not working at the moment. You could invite them as guests to your Teams

I need a bit more info about the last section to help you here. What scenario are you testing?

Regards,

Paul

Both Adam and Paul pretty much got it here, but Adam was technically first :P. Anyway, they are correct, if you haven't switch you coexistence modes to Teams Only on both sides, you have to check the skype clients for external(federated) chats.

If you want to test it you can do an external chat to turismon@webbtech.org I have it configured and let people test with that all the time.

It also can take a bit for the external access to activate, when typing a new chat and typing in my address you shoudl see a "Search externally for turismon@webbtech.org" that you can select, this will let you know it's working / available.
That moment when you about to send a reply to question and you get that little notification "Adam postet a new message to Microsoft Teams" :)

Hi, I do set the team admin settings as below, for two of my test trial account, and both set to teams only, but still cannot chat directly/privately, it did show as external contact but both party cannot send private chat message, only one of party can send video/audio call, let say party A can send video/audio call to party B, while party B cannot send audio/video call at all but can receive audio/video call from party A. Before this I tried add the domain name as allow domain at External access settings but no use, so I remove the allowed domain and leave it blank.

 

I tried send private chat to turismon@webbtech.org, not sure that you receive it?

First of, domains as you said can be left blank!
The guest access settings is something different and should only be enabled if you want to permit guests in teams! ( just so you are aware of this )
Also it could take some time to propagate the settings! But I would also suggest to make this setting on both tenants via powershell! There have been inconsistencies with the UI before!

Nope didn't receive them. Odd that it shows up. Can try again since I'm online see if my presence shows up etc.

Hi Chris,

 

I am also trying to start a chat on your test account.

 

Btw. I do see your presence though

 

Kind regards,

 

Jesse
