Skype for Business
Skype for Business may not open by default after being upgraded to Office 365. If Skype doesn’t automatically sign you in, you may need to manually open it once, sign in, and tell it to run automatically with Windows:
1) Use the Windows search feature to find Skype for Business
Note: a search for “Skype” will yield several results. Please be sure to open Skype for Business; not just Skype or the Skype for Business Recording Manager!
Note: Occasionally, we have seen Skype not auto-start correctly after the upgrade despite having this box checked. If you experience this, follow the above steps, uncheck the box to auto-start, apply the settings, exit and restart Skype, and then re-check the box. This has resolved the issue in our testing.
