Reminder: Skype for Business Online retires July 31, 2021


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:

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.
