Wrong user name in error message when a call transfer isn't completed in Skype for Business 2016

Applies to: Skype for Business 2016


Consider the following scenario:

  • User A starts a call with User B in Microsoft Skype for Business 2016 and User B accepts the call.

  • User A tries to transfer the call to User C who is offline.

  • If User C doesn't accept the call, User A receives a "Cannot complete the transfer" error notification.

  • User A clicks the error notification to see the error's details.

  • The error's details shows "Call was not transferred because User A cannot be reached and may be offline."

In this scenario, User C should be shown in the error's details.
