Hello Community,

 

Ever wondered if we can appear Offline in Skype for Business? Well, then you are at the right place.

 

To enable "Appear Offline" add the below registry (create it if not present)

 

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Lync]

"EnableAppearOffline"=dword:00000001

@Aamir Baig any chance you know how to do same in MacOS version?

@Chris_Paine, not sure about MAC as the registries doesn't apply to MAC os
