Only works if we have federated servers

I just type in their email address in the contact list and ping them

Nope we can't do it at Deloitte . It has to be cleared. Some projects allow you add the clients email addresses to skype for business at Deloitte but it has to go through a process. And we definitely are not allowed to talk to 'our friends' in other firms

Yeah I have been pinging my friends at other company since I got skype without issue...not all other companies allow it though so you just have to try and see

So federated servers means that ITS has approved traffic passing from out Skype to their servers. A lot of our clients have been approved, so I've been able to use it in the past

No additional setup needed

Hmm ok. I thought I had to set up some external thing. Ok ill give it a tryv

@D2: What does that mean?
Do we have federated servers?

So D1, kinda curious how you got it to work for yourself. Have you actually been able to do it successfully?

Six years at B4 now. I don't have the fire in me I used to have for my career. Really wanted to make a partner one day but that aspiration has almost disappeared. I now look for a way to slack, do bare minimum only when it's absolutely necessary and have zero desire to do anything above and beyond. Have been interviewing outside of public for a while without success. How do I get my fire back? I miss that feeling.
