Hi,

 

We're using teams for internal comms but I occasionally have cause to attend S4B meetings. I don't have S4B installed locally and the "Lync Web App" is not really a web app and doesn't work outside of an IE plugin. Is there a way to open an S4B meeting like https://meet.company.com/user.name/ABCD1234 using Teams?

 

Thanks.

Hi @Wayne Moore

 

There's no option to do that as far as I know.

 

It may be worth installing the Skype for Business client or at least the Skype web app to run on your web browser (e.g. Chrome).

 

You may be presented with the option to do this when you click onto the Skype link (depends on what version of Skype you are using, etc).

 

Best wishes with this matter.

 

Cheers

Damien

Thanks Damien. Unfortunately installing the S4B client or plugin are not an option for me on my laptop, but I have access to VDI sessions where I can do that.

No worries buddy. All the best for the week ahead!

Agree with Damien here, best option is to have both clients installed...if that is not an option, then the Web approach should work

Thanks Juan Carlos. 

 

Is there a plan to allow this? At some point S4B will be shutdown but it's possible that people will still run on-prem systems, etc. From all previous reading, I got the impression that Teams and S4B are slowing merging together but during this period it is a pain to maintain two clients.

 

I've added a vote in Uservoice if anyone is interested in the same.

Not aware of any Plans, but Ignite is almost here and we might have news on this requirement...they have to do somethinf for sure bearing in mind that int he Cloud, Teams is going to be at some point the only solution for UC, but of course we still have the OnPremsises part of the story where we have Skype For Business

Any update on this?

No plans to do this AFAIK! There also released the possibility to convert previously created Skype meetings also!
Above solutions stillness apply!
