Microsoft Outlook has had “Quick Steps” that allows users to make shortcuts for common email tasks for some time. Now Landis Technologies brings “Quick Steps” to Skype for Business communication tasks to make users more efficient when communicating using Attendant Pro for Skype for Business. You could think of “Quick Access Shortcuts” as Macros for the Skype for Business client.
What kind of Skype for Business communication tasks can be made into a Quick Access Shortcut?
