ACU goes live with Microsoft Teams-only mode

ACU is officially in Microsoft Teams-only mode, with a farewell to Skype for Business occurring over the weekend.

Microsoft Teams is the new home of calls, meetings and chats. IT converted all Skype meetings into Teams meetings for you, moved over phone lines and chat functions – but what should you do now?

To start with, you can sign up for a Teams Training sessions, running on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 12pm from 27 April – 29 May. You’ll learn the basics of Teams calling, meetings, file storage and collaboration from IT support staff.

How to do it in Teams

Manage your call delegations

Call delegation is a feature in Microsoft Teams telephony which allows multiple people’s phones to ring when your number is called. This is especially helpful if you have an assistant who often answers calls on your behalf.

To enable this setting click your profile picture at the top of the app, then select Settings > Calls. In the “also ring” section you can enter a new contact or number that will simultaneously ring.

Find out how to set up call delegations, forwarding and voicemail in this Service Central knowledge base article.
