IT have recently introduced Skype for Business at the University, something that many people have been asking about for a number of years. Having instant messaging and video conferencing facilities at our desks makes it easier for us to meet with people across the country and the world without the need to travel.
One thing that we’ve found useful in Sustainability Services is having Skype for Business open when your start your computer up. This has meant we can see when colleagues are available through the day so we can communicate whilst people are working remotely. So to make sure Skype for Business opens on start up follow the process below:
Log into Skype -> Go to tools -> Options -> Personal tab -> Then check the box that says “Automatically start the app when I log into Windows”
That’s it, really easy! Let us know what you think of Skype for Business and how you are using it to reduce the amount of travel you need to do. You could even instant message us…
