Skype for Business Inquiry RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Just a little inquiry, is it possible to setup a Skype for business on-premise for Archiving features for SKype for Business in O365? 

    What I mean here is Skype for business O365 users will able to use Skype for business on-premise as its Archiving? Because as far as I know, the archive feature for SFB is not implemented in O365.

    Thank you.

  • Hi spodeynok,

    I didn't find any document about such configuration. You can consider to use Exchange for Archiving.

    Skype for Business provides archiving of peer-to-peer instant messages, multiparty instant messages, and content upload activities in meetings. The archiving capability requires Exchange and is controlled by the user’s Exchange mailbox In-Place Hold attribute, which archives both email and Skype for Business contents.

    Security and Archiving

  • If the user is using Skype for Business Online and Exchange Online, then you can turn on archiving, but it won't be merged with the on-premises archiving, it will be stored in Exchange Online only.  You don't set it using a Skype policy either, it's set by enabling In Place Hold on the Exchange user's mailbox and making sure the Skype items box is checked (this has to be done per user, not a global setting).

    There's no great way to combine them, other than by using a third party archiving tool like Smarsh for example.

  • Hi spideynok,

    No. If the user unchecked the "Save IM conversations in my email Conversation History folder", the conversation content will not be saved on the user's mailbox. This option is checked by default. :)

  • Hi Jessie, 

    Thank you for that fast reply and informative answer.

    I also saw that solution earlier, but my question is what if the User uncheck the “Save IM conversations in my email Conversation History folder” on the client settings? Would it still be saved on the users mailbox?

    Thank you.
