The Skype for Business User Interface

By Rosemarie Withee, Ken Withee, Jennifer Reed

Skype for Business helps foster collaboration by enabling users to share their availability, whereabouts, and what they’re working on with colleagues. This set of information is called presence in the application.

In the Personal Notes section of the user interface (see the following figure), text and hyperlinks are allowed providing everyone with real-time information about the user.

Skype for Business automatically displays your presence status based on your activity or Outlook calendar.

You can, however, also manually update your status by selecting one of the following options from the presence status drop-down menu (see the following figure).
