You know telephony in Skype for Business and perhaps in Microsoft Teams, but do you know how to include attendants, call center agents, receptionists, IT-helpdesk, or other call groups into the Teams telephony equation? This workshop is a full day of deep-diving into the wonders of call routing happening in the cloud.

We will dive into the capabilities, and limitations, of the built-in call routing features in Office 365 and Microsoft Teams, like Auto Attendant, Call Queue, and group call pickup.

We will introduce you to the newly released Microsoft Graph Communications and Presence APIs with all-new calling and telephony capabilities. We will also look into what third party vendors such as Competella, Enghouse and Tendfor, can add to your attendant routing to meet the entire organizations’ telephony needs. We will also look in to call recording and the new Compliance Recording API.

Very few voice implementations are “greenfield” therefore; we will discuss what to take into account when transitioning from legacy phone systems, as well as Skype for Business Enterprise Voice implementations to Microsoft Teams and cloud voice.
