Skype for Business: Personalize Your Contact Information

You can personalize your contact information such as your location, phone numbers, and presence information. For example, you can add your mobile phone number and make it available to close contacts only.

To add a personal note that lets other people know what's happening today:

  • In the Skype for Business (Microsoft Lync) main window, click the note box above your name, and then type a note, such as "Working from home" or "Working on a deadline, please IM instead of stopping by."
  • To remove a personal note, clear the note box so it's blank (delete the contents of the note box).
  • To set a location to let people know where you are today, click the arrow next to Set Your Location or your current location, and then, in the location menu (˅), click Show Others My Location.
