Set up support for
Skype for Business

If you plan to support
Skype for Business
for calendar and meeting features in
BlackBerry Work
, you require the following:
Also note the following considerations:
  • The
    Skype for Business
    account and the
    Microsoft Exchange
    server must be in the same domain.
  • Skype for Business
    does not support shared calendars.
  1. Ensure that the following DNS names are added to the DNS server:
    • lyncdiscoverinternal.<domain>
    • lyncdiscover.<domain>
    • meet.<domain>
    For details, see:
  2. Add these FQDN names to the connectivity profile in the Additional Servers section. For details on configuring the connectivity profile, see Configure BlackBerry Work connection settings.
  3. Enable
    Skype for Business
    in the app configuration for
    BlackBerry Work
    . For details, see Configure BlackBerry Work app settings.
    • Select the
      Allow to create Skype for Business meetings in calendar
      option to allow users to add
      Skype for Business
      meetings to their calendars.
    • Select the
      Allow launching into Skype for Business app on mobile
      option to allow users to make voice and video calls and to be able to join
      Skype for Business
      meetings directly from a calendar invitation. The meeting is automatically opened in the
      Skype for Business
      client and users must have the
      Skype for Business
      client installed on their devices.
    • In the
      Domain of Skype for Business meeting link
      field, enter the fully qualified domain name or the domain-only portion of the
      Skype for Business
      meeting server to allow internal users to use the Join meeting button in the event details. For example, or By entering this domain name,
      BlackBerry Work
      can locate which meeting link to capture from the meeting invitation if it is different from the user's email address domain.
