  • Look up a recent file and open the file using /files
  • Look up someone’s org using /org
  • Navigate to a channel using /goto
  • Call a person using /call
  • Try out other /commands

If you’ve got a Skype for Business Audio Conferencing license, you’re now able to dial out to your own phone number from a current meeting. This allows you to transfer meeting audio to your phone if you’re having network problems, need to get in the car or on a slow connection.

Click the “i” icon on top of the right screen.

Here you can type in your own phone number.

If the call is placed succesfull, a checkmark will appear.
