Skype for Business Online is being retired on the 31st of July 2021. Though we are just a few weeks away, many organisations have yet to move their users off the service. As a result, they are now faced with the challenge of moving their team to a new communication platform, within a limited window of time.

What happens once Skype for Business Online goes away?

According to Microsoft, after Skype for Business Online retires in July, the service will no longer be accessible.  Services integrated with Skype for Business Online will also no longer be supported.

If your organisation is now scrambling to find a secure, efficient, and user-friendly communication platform, Microsoft Teams is the tool for you. At ActionPoint, we have some great resources and options to help your organisation’s seamless transition to Microsoft Teams.
