How to Sign in to Skype for Business (Lync) on Mac

Currently there is not a Skype for Business client available for the Mac.  Mac users are encouraged to continue using Lync for Mac 2011.

(Note: There is a possibility that during the sign in process, you may not see the same screenshots below. If this happens, just proceed to the next step.)

 

When you first launch the Lync 2011 client the following popup will display:

Step 1

For Email Address: type in your email address:

e.g. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

Step 2

For Sign in as: select Automatic.

 

Step 3

For the User ID: type in your Enterprise Messaging Logon and append @ad.ucla.edu to it.

e.g. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Step 4

For Password: type in your email password and click on the Sign In button.

 

Step 5

Congratulations! You have now successfully signed in to Skype for Business (Lync).

 

How to Sign in to Skype for Business (Lync) on Windows

(Note: There is a possibility that during the sign in process, you may not see the same screenshots below. If this happens, just proceed to the next step.)

 

When you first launch the Skype for Business client the following popup will display:

Step 1
For Sign-in address: enter in your email address:

e.g. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If you prefer to, you can also specify the status you Sign in as:

i.e. Available, Busy, Do Not Disturb, etc.

Click the Sign In button to sign into Lync Online.

 

Step 2

On the next screen you will be prompted to enter in a Password.

Enter in your email password then click on the Sign In button.

 

Step 3

In most instances the following popup will be displayed:

Click the OK button to continue the Sign in process.

Step 4

 

On the next screen a User name: field now appears in addition to the Sign-in address and Password.

Note that the User name: field is populated with the same information that you provided for the Sign-in address.

This is incorrect and needs to be changed!

You will need to change the User Name: to your Enterprise Messaging Logon by appending @ad.ucla.edu to it.

e.g. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Re-input your email password and then click on the Sign In button.

 

Step 5

A popup will appear asking you to confirm that this server is trusted for your sign-in address.

Since the em.ucla.edu server can be trusted, check the “Always trust this server, do not show me this again” checkbox and then click on the Connect button.

Step 6

Congratulations! You have now successfully signed in and can start using Skype for Business.
