  • Hi,

    Based on my research, seems we cannot prevent users from updating their location, and also no built-in option to configure Skype for Business to read the info from Active Directory database.

    I'd suggest you post in the dedicated "Skype for Business" forum below for a confirmation on this. That's where most of the Skype for Business experts hang out, you should get more experienced responses out there:


    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us. Thank you for your understanding.
