Hi,

I've come across a post that states that we're able to sync Skype for Business contacts in SharePoint Online.

However, it doesn't state how to configure this functionality. I've attached a screenshot of what it should look like.

Is this do-able?

I've managed to add a 'User' column, this states the users details i.e. telephone number, email address etc. But not Skype for Business presence.

Regards,

David

In theory, it should work in the way your screenshot shows...but the reality is that this feature has never worked properly. Might I ask your environment setup (SharePoint and Skype versions)?

Hi,

I did manage to find this, I had to go into classic mode...

It only works with Internet Explorer, as it uses the ActiveX control NameCtrl: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/install/browser-support-planning-0#using-activex-control...
