Make a Smooth Transition to Teams from Skype for Business
Microsoft is planning to replace Skype for Business with Teams, which combines instant messaging with additional video conferencing, calling, and document collaboration tools into a single, integrated app. Pitt IT is here to help you during this change. To learn how the transition may impact you, expand the box below that best describes your Skype for Business usage.
I do not use Skype for Business at all.
You can start using Microsoft Teams today to collaborate and communicate using chats, collaboration, meetings, and Teams to Teams calls. Use the content below to learn how you can use Teams in your work today.
I use Skype for Business for chats, meetings, or file sharing.
Teams can meet all of your needs for chats, meetings, file sharing, and much more. See the resources below to learn how to use Teams. You can start using Teams today alongside Skype for Business to gradually transition your daily work to Teams before the University moves to Teams only.
I have a Skype for Business phone.
Pitt IT plans to work with all of our Skype for Business phone users as a trusted partner to make the transition as seamless as possible. Calls to your University telephone number will continue to ring in Skype for Business until you are fully migrated to Teams. We recommend that you learn how to use Teams for chat and collaboration before the migration, so that you can become familiar with the app before you will need to use it for phone purposes. See the resources below to start learning how to use the Teams app. You can also preview how you will use Teams to make and receive University phone calls, just as you do now with Skype for Business.
