As a quick reminder:
As we approach the retirement of Skype for Business Online, we want to take a moment to appreciate the efforts organizations are making to complete their transitions to Teams prior to July 31, 2021, as well as those who have already upgraded to Teams. Thank you! If you still have Skype for Business Online users, keep working your upgrade plan. Regardless of the technical and change management dynamics with your upgrade, you can accomplish so much over the next three months.
Microsoft publish a lot of resources that can help with the transition towards Microsoft Teams:
- Microsoft Teams admin documentation provides guidance for rolling out, managing, and preparing users for Teams.
- Online upgrade guidance helps you prepare your technical environment and end-users for the upgrade to Teams.
- Teams upgrade planning workshops take you through a proven framework for planning and implementing your upgrade from Skype for Business to Teams.
- Microsoft Chalk Talks workshops teach best practices and practical guidance around some of the most popular and compelling scenarios in Teams.
We recommend to migrate all organisations that are still using Skype for Business Online to migrate towards Microsoft Teams as soon as possible. We also recommend all organisations with an on Premises Skype for Business installation to coexistence mode to upgrade directly to Teams Only mode.
Microsoft also offers the Microsoft-assisted upgrades to Teams for Skype for Business Online customers for customers with cloud-only or hybrid deployments.
