  • Hello Mark, 

    The Service description table which you have mentioned is that publicly available. There is no Desktop Sharing Archiving unless the company policy states that all desktop shared sessions to be recorded by default.

  • Desktopsharing could not be automatically archived.

    You could only record everything and store these files on a fileshare to archive.

  • Hi,

    Base on my understanding,  desktop sharing archiving is a feature of Skype for Business online feature about security and archiving.

    Please refer to

    https://technet.microsoft.com/library/jj822172.aspx

    For Skype for Business Server 2015 On-Premise environment, desktop and application sharing for peer-to-peer instant messages and conferences can’t be archived. It only could be recorded by the Client side per every SFB conferences.

    Best regards

  • I'm sorry, but I can't see the answer in the proposed answers?! Yes, it is publically available: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/office/dn788955.aspx

    The possible answers:

    1. It doesn't exist - it's a typo.

    2. It's a Skype thing - but of course I know that which is why I'm posting in the Skype forum.

    3. It's something that can't be done. But then again, Skype can't make coffee unfortunately, so why mention it? 

    Sorry, I'm just a bit confused as to what it is that I'm missing. (Or not.)

  • Yes Mark thank you for sharing , The name Skype for Business Server 2015 is listed there as one of the option across O365 Platform and its listed in the Online section of Technet. Looks like we need to find out if there is a plan like that standalone from the online team. Could you also post this in the online forum for further clarity

  • Er, so what is Desktop Sharing Archiving?

  • Hi,

    Base on my understanding, It is more a SFB online feature. From the description, it may the function to archive the content of the desktop sharing.

    For SFB Server On-Premises environment, there is no function to archive the content for desktop sharing. If you have deployed Monitoring Server role, it will just store if the desktop sharing function be used or not.

    On SFB Server On-Premise side, it could be achieved by client side. SFB users need to record it with skype for business Recording Manager.

    Best Regards

  • OK, thanks. So, we know it doesn't exist for On-Prem. But, it also doesn't exist in Office 365 either (given that the archiving in Office 365 is very basic compared with On-Prem.)

    So, it looks like it's not an OnPrem and it's not Office 365. I'm starting to think that it's a non-existent feature that Microsoft decided, like making coffee for example, to tell people "it doesn't do this"... :) Given that it also doesn't do a bazillion other things, I'm curious as to why MS decided to point out that it didn't do this particular non-existent thing but maybe this is just a futile exercise of trying to get into the head of someone at Microsoft? :)

    I'll mark as "answered" the first person to suggest that it's non-existent (or a typo).
