Enable Remote Log Access

Your Skype for Business (Lync) Phone Edition IP desk phone has a feature called Remote Log Access. If you have issues with your phone, enable this feature—when you enable it, your phone collects logs that you can submit to Microsoft Help and Support for analysis and troubleshooting assistance.
