Few people who use Skype for Business actually make use of 100% its functionality. There are just so many interesting features that it’s not always easy to get to all of them.
Today we will close this gap by demonstrating some cool features that can be used in Skype for Business calls and meetings.
The first interesting function is the ‘Whiteboard’. You can use it as a real whiteboard for your meeting. For instance, you can draw diagrams and pictures by hand to illustrate what you’re saying. What’s more, everyone can draw on it at the same time in Skype for Business!
Of course, drawing with your mouse isn’t very convenient, but still it makes a great support feature for your presentation!
It is not so simple to find this feature as it is hidden deep in the call window menu:
First, you need to press this button in the conference window.

All these cool Skype for Business features are available in EasyLy, too.
In addition, we moved the buttons into the call window for quick access to these and many other useful functions that will definitely streamline you work.
