How do I join a Skype for Business meeting from a Deakin video conferencing room?

Deakin staff and students can now join a Skype for Business meeting from a Deakin video conferencing room.

This new feature is particularly useful if you need to bring a group of people together with a person external to Deakin into an online meeting. For example, when conducting interviews or hosting a webinar. 

Pre-requisities

If you are organising the meeting, you will need to book a Skype for Business online meeting in Outlook, and invite the meeting participants. Then, you will need to book a Deakin video conferencing room.

Steps

  1. In a Deakin video conferencing room, find the panel you will use to dial in to the Skype Online Meeting.


     
  2. Select Contacts.
  3. Type SFB Meeting in the Search or Dial field.
  4. Select SFB Meeting (Skype for Business), then select Call.
  5. A voice prompt will ask you to enter the Conference ID of your meeting. You can find this ID in your Skype for Business online meeting calendar entry in Outlook.
  6. Now that you have the Conference ID, go back to the panel and select Keypad. Then, enter the Conference ID, followed by the hash (#) key.
     
  7. You are now connected to your Skype for Business online meeting, allowing you to collaborate with others who have joined the meeting. Select End to end the call.
