Return to Skype for Business – Mac Resources

Set up an ad-hoc conference call by inviting additional people to join an existing call.

If you are already in a phone call, you can add other users from the Global Address List, from your Contact List, or by entering a person’s phone number directly.

  • Please the current call on hold by clicking Hold: Pause icon
    Note: If you do not see the Hold button, click the Call Controls button first: Mac-CallControls
  • Click the Invite More People button (Mac-InviteButton) and search for the contact to invite; you can also enter a phone number.
  • When you have found the contact, double-click on it in the search results:
    Mac-InviteAfterSearch
    The number will be dialed and joined into the existing call.
