With the recent upgrade and migration of our email system to Exchange 2016, two new integrated features have been successfully implemented into the Exchange and Skype platforms.

Create a Skype meeting from the Outlook Web Application (OWA)

  *   Previously this was not available but a highly requested feature for users that did not have a compatible email client to create Skype meetings
  *   Now when you create a calendar event from OWA<https://connect.uwaterloo.ca/owa> you will see a new button labeled “Skype Meeting”

  *   After clicking Add Skype Meeting, the body of the meeting will populate with the Skype meeting details that can be sent to anyone to join!

Server Side Conversation History

  *   One of the big challenges faced by users with multiple devices (e.g. PC and mobile) was the ability to see all conversations and continue them from the device of your choice.  Now with Exchange 2016 the Skype servers themselves handle the storage of your IMs directly to your Exchange mailbox so each client can pull the current conversations to make it easier to find and continue your conversations on any device.
  *   Please note: This setting has not yet been enabled, but has been tested to confirm it is working. Upon completion of testing we anticipate having this enabled within the next couple of weeks.

Questions or concerns? Please contact the IST Service Desk, helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca<mailto:helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca> or ext. 44357.
