Return to Skype for Business – Mac Resources
Presence lets other people see at a glance whether you and your contacts are currently available.
Limit access to your presence information
The Mac client does not yet have the ability to adjust who can see your presence. You may log into Skype for Business on a Windows computer and make these changes. There are two ways to control who can see your presence.
Send an Instant Message (IM)
Add a phone call to an IM conversation
Click the phone icon in the IM window and then choose a number from the options. For UMass Lowell faculty and staff, their work number should be listed. Picking "Skype Call" will also call their work number.
Add video to an IM conversation
Click the camera button and check the preview. Adjust your webcam if needed then click Start My Video. To end sharing your video, click the camera button again.
