Participating in a LifeSize Meeting with Skype for Business

  1. Open the Skype for Business application, and, if necessary, log in with your employee credentials.
  2. Obtain the address for the LifeSize meeting room you'd like to dial into (the address resembles an email address, such as "2574264@lifesizecloud.com"). This information was sent to the organizer of any meeting booking a LifeSize-enabled meeting when the conference room accepted the request (a list can be found here), OR, if the host is an individual (not a conference room), the information can be obtained by the organizer from within the LifeSize application.
  3. If you have not already added this conference room or individual to your contacts list, add them by clicking the Add Contact button (right edge of window) > Add a Contact Not in My Organization > Skype for Business.



  4. Paste in the address of the LifeSize extension you'd like to reach, pick the appropriate group (if desired), then click OK.



  5. The extension will now appear in your contact list with the name assigned to it in our LifeSize directory, with "Lifesize Contact" in the description:
