Skype For Business Integration (Email, SMS, SAS etc) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Day,

    I want to send a message to a chat room using an external application such as SAS, vba, SQL or even a email/sms.

    For example, a message is generated using vba/email and then it is sent to a chat room. I know this is possible to do on the consumer version of Skype. Is there any way I can achieve this on Skype for businesses?

  • Hi Peder5000,

    If I understand correctly, VBA is Microsoft visual basic for application?

    Based on my research,you could not use e-mail/sms to achive it,but you could develop a desktop application by Lync 2013 SDK, including reading message sent to a Persistent Chat room, sending messages to a chat room, finding chat rooms, viewing a chat room roster, filtering outgoing chat room messages, and extending chat room functionality with an add-in.

    The following link for your reference.
