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

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