Recent Chat in Skype for Business on mobile devices RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    Now we are using Skype for Business on Android and iOS devices and we have a couple questions.

    Server is Skype for Business 2015

    Main question is when user start conversation in Android SfB client that chat is apears at Recent Conversation in clients interface. And then somehow that chat disappeared.

    Our mobile policy is:

    Identity                                  : Tag:AllowMobility
    Description                               :
    EnableOutsideVoice                        : False
    EnableMobility                            : True
    EnableIPAudioVideo                        : False
    RequireWIFIForIPVideo                     : False
    AllowCustomerExperienceImprovementProgram : False
    RequireWiFiForSharing                     : False
    AllowSaveCallLogs                         : False
    AllowExchangeConnectivity                 : False
    AllowSaveIMHistory                        : False
    AllowSaveCredentials                      : True
    EncryptAppData                            : True
    AllowDeviceContactsSync                   : False
    EnablePushNotifications                   : True
    RequireIntune                             : False
    VoiceSettings                             : VoIPAlways

    My question is - when that chat is deleted from client? Or because of what it deleted? After period time or something else?

    I know, that PChat now available for any sfb mobile client.

    And second question - is there any way to make web conference with infinite time of life? If yes, then how?

  • Hi AntonKarlan,

    1. Chat in Android SFB disappeared.
    As you said, the chat will appear at Recent Conversation in the Android SFB client when user start conversation, this is by design, it is a normal behavior. About the chat disappeared, based on my research, it seems this is a bug, you could refer to the feedback in the SFB feedback website, you could also vote for it and we hope this issue will be fixed in the near future. In addition, I suggest you try to use the latest version of Skype for Business in the Android. 

    2. Is there any way to make web conference with infinite time of life?
    Following are the four types of conference:
    a. For a one-time scheduled meeting, the expiry time is the scheduled end time plus 14 days.
    b. For a recurring scheduled meeting with an end date, the expiry time is the scheduled end time of the last meeting occurrence plus 14 days.
    c. For an ad hoc IM or A/V conference, the expiry time is 8 hours.
    d. For a recurring scheduled meeting without a specified end date, the expiry time is 6 months after the last meeting activation.
    If you want to make a conference with infinite time of life, you need to check the conference type and follow the rules. Details about this you could refer to the blog: Lync Conference Expiration and Deactivation Explained  

    In addition, we suggest users post one issue in a post. The reason why we ask to post multiple issues separately is to facilitate other users with similar problems to quickly and accurately view your posts in the future.
