    Hello, I have not done this myself in the past, might be great to see if we get any responses from others in the field who may have done this. The only thing i can think of is that since you CMS is currently still on the std Edi FE it is likely the publish topology after adding the ent pool will still reach out to the std edition FE. have u tried to publish topology from the STD edi FE itself after adding the ent pool?

    I've currently an E3 license available.
    I'd like to do the following setup :

    1. Physical number reachable from POTS
    2. Voice prompt with options (IVR)
    3. One of the options would be oncall services. This will reach out to two numbers (cellphone). If none is picked up, the message is recorded and send to the email address with the useful information (date, time, message, ...)

    How can I implement this and what are the licenses needed?

    For cloudpbx with PSTN calling you will have to wait until AA is out. If you use CCE with local PSTN breakout you can integrate with 3rd part IVR systems such as FreePBX via SIP.
  • Hi,


    since the Nov 2016 cumulative update meeting join with iOS 10 started to work.


    Unfortunately, we see with iOS 10.3 beta 1 that, again, meeting join doesn't work. When opening a meeting link in Safari, Safari requests to open the SfB app which works. But the app doesn't offer the options to sign in or to join as guest. The app only shows the login screen and does not start the meeting.


    Using iPhone and iPad with iOS 10.3 beta 1 and Lync Server 2013 on-premise with Nov 2016 CU installed.


    This post is to let Microsoft know in advance that there might be a change required again. We don't want to wait as long as we had to with the iOS 10 release until the fix was published (2 months?!)

    The issue with the iOS I have is the same, but on a Skype for Business 2015.

    I forgot that you were using Lync 2013 Server, so the update I mentioned will not work. And I also don't see any references on the latest CU (January 2017). Sorry about that:(
  • Just wanted to check on the timeline for Skype for Business AA Preview approval? I signed up a few weeks ago, and received the welcome email. I have updated my profile and added all of my employees. Is there anything that I can do to expedite the approval process or perhaps there is an additional step/requirement that I am overlooking?

    We're on SfB Online, but Exchange on prem does that affect the appearance of the group? I don't have a "My Delegates" group in Contacts.
