Calls and meetings

Enter your mobile number with country/region codes. When Skype for Business (Lync) cannot use Wi-Fi or the cellular data network to make an audio or video call, you’re called back at this number to connect you to the audio part of the Skype for Business (Lync) call.

  1. From the Skype for Business (Lync) screen, tap your mobile device’s Menu button, then tap Options.

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

You need HTTP Proxy settings if your organization’s network has a proxy that requires credentials setup. You’ll need to enter this information to sign in and use the application on your organization’s Wi-Fi.
