As a full time remote worker, Skype for Business is vital for me to remain connected to my team mates and entire network of remote colleagues. I love that Skype shows me the status (busy, on a call, in a meeting, away, off-work, etc.) of the person I need to connect with.
It also allows me to "tag" that person for a status change to ensure that we successfully connect under tight deadlines. It is easy to create, edit and remove groups. If you connect with some people more than others, you can set them up as favorites.
It is super easy to utilize the Skype Meeting and screen share--I use this several times a day and it is super reliable and have never had to worry about screen freezing, etc.
Work is work, but Skype does allow you to have some fun. You can create your own tagline and there is a good variety of emojis.
Getting the audio setup can be a bit tricky for some users. Unfortunately, I had no issues, but frequently, other users do not have the audio setup correctly on their end which makes the Skype calls not work.
This is a very easy product to utilize. The hardest thing to do is make sure that the end users are aware of how to setup the audio setting.
I'm able to have a more extensive work network than I would if I just relied on being in a physical office. I work across time zones as if we were in the same office.
