Skype for Business vacation integration RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have Skype for Business 2013 and Sharepoint 2013. We would like to give a user status "On Vacation" and purple color when that user is on vacation. The dates should be taken from sharepoint vacation system. Has anybody implemented similar functionality, and where to start from?

  • Hi eXPlosion,

    Based on my research, you could custom presence states in Skype for Business,but you cannot change the color to purple and show the purple present in sharepoint vacation system,if you still want to change it ,you could refer to the following link.
