Skype for Business Client and Persistent Chat issue RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • We have been doing some testing internally - and we have found that when uploading a file (e.g.  "WhySeason6Sucked.txt") into a Lync PCHAT room - the Lync clients can get the file ... BUT, both the Skype 16x version AND the Skype 15x Eval are unable to access the file.  It comes across as just a pic in the chat body.  

    With some tracing we found that the Lync clients make calls to the onprem Lync server during this operation - however, the SKYPE clients do not make those calls.   

    An interesting observation to say the least .... I think there may be some bugs in how the new client is acting specific to PCHAT.  Any thoughts?

  • We tried out the Skype for Business Preview client and also seeing issues with PCHAT rooms.

    Rooms that work fine on Lync client are missing items in the rooms when using Skype for Business client. 

    Is there a fix for this, or an update to the preview that may have fixed this?  This is a major concern if it doesn't get fixed before the major rollout.
