Not showing offline time or days for skype for business

Hi,

Skype for business always shows offline time or days and it's really boring. Can you provide a solution that can hide offline time or days? Thank you.

@Eliza-0547,

You could follow the steps to hide the offline time or days in Skype for Business client:

  1. Enable business-to-business communications for your users.

  2. Click on the Relationship Tab from the main Skype for Business Window.

  3. Under Relationship Tab, you will see several groups. Friends and Family, Colleagues, External Contacts, Blocked Contacts, etc.

  4. Now, decide on which contacts you want to hide your Away and Offline times from. Drag and drop those contacts under the External Contacts area.

  5. After the contacts under External Contacts area relog in clients, it will take effect.

Please note that External Contacts will also have limited access to many other information about you.

@Eliza-0547,

You could add contacts to Blocked Contacts group as below. Then, you will display as offline in the blocked contacts client.
