Just love popout in calls and meetings

 During the last month there has come some new fuctions. After 4 weeks off work, I have now been trying this function for about 2 weeks.

The function I talk about  is Popout meeting and calls.

So what does the call window looks like when it has out. Well like this

When working on two monitors this is something I have been waiting for a long time.

Have a great day out there #StaySafe


Less than a year to Skype online switch off!

When I got to work this morning something hit me.

It is now less than a year until Microsoft has told the world that they will do a switch off on Skype Online. 
Well folks it's now time to start your travel and migration to Microsoft Teams. 

If you are running Skype for Business onprem, well you as still safe and can  do so for the next few years.

Teams, Outlook contacts

I have got quite lot's of questions about outlook and teams contacs. This need futher investigation to figure this out.
Frist I came over this post in the tech communities Add company name
Then I read and added this and they showed up. 
But I could not figure out why all contacts needed company name, so I posted this question.

Then someone start to push me to do some more testing. And here is my conclusion.

1. If you add a new contact you don't need company name or email, just name and phonenumber. The phonenumber does not need to be on E164 can be strait forward.  Restart the teams client and it shows up under Calls - Contacts.
2. If you have an old contacts that does not show, just do a change on it and it will show up.

This has been tested on a clean Exchange online (no-hybrid). 

This will be the last blog in some time due to that I am going on 4 weeks vacation next week. Have a great summer and #StaySafe
