Episode 20 – Getting Started with Skype for Business Online

Episode 20, Scott and I are already approaching 6 months of our podcast! To celebrate the big two-zero, we wanted to do an episode on getting started with Skype for Business Online.  In this episode, we walk through getting up and running on Skype for Business, things to be aware of, various features and functionality within the Skype for Business platform and wrap it all up nicely with some of the boundaries and limitations to be aware of.
