Efficient and green: organise online meetings with Skype for Business

5 June 2019

Following a successful trial with Skype for Business at several university locations, this service is now available to all university staff. With Skype for Business, you can easily arrange a video conference with colleagues and with guests who do not have a university account.

Simply use Outlook

A Skype for Business meeting is easy to organise using Outlook. Send an invitation to any internal or external email address. Anyone can join the meeting, even without a Skype for Business account, by using the Skype for Business-web app. All you need is an Outlook invitation to the meeting.

What you need

Make sure that Skype for Business is installed on your computer or device. This also applies to the colleagues you are inviting. Alternatively, anyone who does not have the software installed can still participate in the meeting, after agreeing to the installation of the browser-add-in/plug-in for Skype for Business.
