How do I receive a phone call if I am not logged into Skype for Business?

Deakin Staff who have been transitioned to Skype for Business (Lync) can make and receive phone calls without a deskphone using Skype for Business (Lync) on their PC or Mac. 

If you are logged off

If your computer is turned off or if you are logged out of Skype for Business, your calls will be automatically diverted to your voicemail.

You can use these options to access your voicemail:

  • Skype for Business app on an iPad or Android tablet (login using your Deakin username and password)
  • Skype for Business app on an iPhone or Android smartphone (login using your Deakin username and password)
  • Outlook Web Access (OWA) at mail.deakin.edu.au on any computer
  • Dial in from any phone to Outlook Voice Access via the number +61352278777 (you'll need your access number and PIN to listen to your voicemail)

If you are locked out of your account, you will not be able to login to OWA or to the Skype for Business app on a tablet or smartphone until your account is unlocked.
