Calls and meetings

Phone Number

Enter your mobile number with country and region codes. When Wi-Fi or a data network (if you have a SIM card for your iPad) isn’t available to join a meeting, Skype for Business (Lync) calls you back at this number to connect you to the audio portion of the Skype for Business (Lync) call.

  1. From the left, tap the first icon to get to the My Info screen. From the My Info screen, tap Options.

  2. On the Options screen, under Calls and Meeting, tap Phone Number, and then enter your mobile phone number including the country/region and area code.

Require Wi-Fi for VoIP, Voice, Meeting Content

If your iPad has a cellular data connection, you can control whether you want to make Skype for Business (Lync)c audio and video calls and share meeting content by using Wi-Fi only, or by using your cellular data connection when you’re not connected to Wi-Fi. For information about the default and alternative settings, go to Adjust your data use settings.

My Credentials

By default, the My Credentials option is turned on to show all your meeting and voice mail information on Skype for Business (Lync).

The Exchange setting lets you enter credentials if Exchange credentials are separate from your Skype for Business (Lync) settings. If they’re the same, keep the Use Skype for Business (Lync) Credentials switch set to ON. You need Exchange credentials to show meetings and voice mail.

HTTP Proxy settings are needed if your corporate network has a proxy requiring credentials setup. You’ll need to enter this information to sign in and use the application on your corporate Wi-Fi.

Contacts

Photos

  • To show or hide pictures of your contacts, tap ON or OFF.

Accessibility

TTY

Text telephone (TTY) mode is used to send text over a telephone line. A TTY device must be connected to the iPad to interpret the modified audio. Otherwise, you might experience poor audio quality. Using TTY mode in a conference call might also cause audio quality issues.

By default, TTY mode is turned off. Tap ON to turn it on.
