Open Skype for Business

Unlike the other Office 365 operated by 21Vianet applications, Skype for Business installs from the Office 365 portal onto the computer or device you’re using. After you install Skype for Business, you use it—for audio or video calls, instant messages, online meetings, and to share your screen—by opening it from your computer like any other application.

  1. Windows users, on the computer or device you installed Lync on, do the following:

    • In Windows 8, go to the Start screen, and then click Skype for Business or Lync Basic 2013.

    • In Windows 7, click Start > All Programs > Microsoft Skype for Business > Skype for Business or Lync Basic 2013.

  2. If it’s your first time signing in, type your password, and then click Sign in.
