I have been frustrated when using Microsoft Teams to do a video call with Skype with Business. The two biggest problems I have been struggling are:

1. I cannot share screens with people on Skype for Business as a screen sharing feature is disabled. 

2. I cannot invite more than 1 Skype for Business participants to join a video call when these participants are not ready to use Microsoft Teams. 

 

What are the solutions, please?

Hi, thanks for the info link. I actually saw this infa a while ago, but it didnt give me a solution.

 

"For all these limitations (except for Persistent Chat), one possible workaround is for one user to start a meeting and invite the other user to join it. This workaround is the basis for interop escalation."

 

This workaround i tried it, but it didnt work. That's why i asked this community for a real solution.

Hi Angela..

 

From where you scheduled the meeting? from SfB client or Teams?

I also have a big customer with S4B only and daily file transfer and regular window/screen sharing. So I think I have to stay with the island solution, right?
Except that Microsoft will move your tenant across to Teams real-soon-now whether you want to or not... And yes, it's caused my main client a lot of angst and confusion. All you can do is delay the upgrade by 30 days.
