Skype for Business and Teams Interopability
I am seeming to find a bunch of separate topics on issues with Skype/Teams integration but can't find one that states the basic facts...
Our organization is using Skype for Business, this integration was marked complete:
But it doesn't address the following issues:
1) There is no way to see a contact list, you can go to 'Chat -> Recent' and see some suggested contacts, and you can see some under 'Contacts -> Favorites', but there is no 'list of all users' and their status like on S4B
2) Users status does not sync between the two, despite this being marked completed:
I'm looking right now and a number of people are offline in S4B, yet they show as available in Teams? (I know nobody else is using Teams, I'm an early adopter)
3) I signout of S4B, b/c would like to use Teams instead, but new messages don't seem to ever show up in Teams. Half the time they either go to the Web version of Skype in Outlook (Office365 web client), or if I'm not using that, I'll just get the 'missed conversation' email when I'm clearly signed into teams. Only when I start a conversation with users VIA teams, does the chat stay there.
If there was true interopability one would expect that signing into teams would give you the same experience as S4B, but just with the added benefits of Teams. There is no way our tech team is going to convince the entire organization to switch if users can't "try it out" first with all these problems existing.
