Microsoft Teams to Replace Skype for Business – November 2023

The university’s communication landscape will change in November 2023 as Microsoft Teams will replace Skype for Business. As outlined in the CFAES News and dean’s update, most of the college will begin moving to Teams Calling on Nov. 8 and 15. County offices and special cases (e.g. IP phones; advanced calling and answering configurations) will be handled separately. 
With the coming migrations, Skype for Business will no longer be used, and functionality (including calling, meetings, and chat) will move to Microsoft Teams. Over the next few months, OTDI will reach out individually with further information on your migration. Training resources for Microsoft Teams exist on the Administrative Resource Center (ARC); and in-depth previously recorded live training addresses the specific changes coming as part of the university move from Skype to Teams calling. 

If you have any questions or concerns about the Microsoft Teams Calling implementation, contact IT Service Desk by calling 614-514-4848, emailing, or using Self Service
