Skype for Business, Switching Between Default and Away Greetings

How do I Switch Between my Default and Away Greetings?

Switching Between Your Default and Away Greetings 

  1. Log in to OWA at
  2. Click on Options, then select See All Options
  3. Click on the Phone "tab" on the left-hand side of the screen, and make sure the Voice Mail "tab" is selected along the top of the screen. 
  4. Find the section for Greetings. You can toggle between the Default greeting and the Away greeting by selecting the appropriate radio button.


If you are hearing the "wrong" greeting, or a default greeting when you expected a self-recorded message, first check in OWA to make sure the proper greeting (default vs. away) radio button is checked. Also, double-check that each of the messages has been recorded per your wishes. Also, greetings recorded on your Centrex line will not carry over to Lync.
