Skype for Business
Last changed: 01 July 2016
Skype for Business is a communication tool that gives access to video calls, chat, voice calls and also a way to share documents with other users.
Everyone at SLU who has an active account in the Idis system has also been given an account in Skype for business. This account is connected to your AD log on and Outlook which makes the log on to Skype easier, and makes it possible for you to directly see if your contacts are on line and available for a talk.

If your department has an IT co-ordainator of your own:
You need to install Skype for Business manually. Contact your IT co-ordinator for support and instructions.
