Configure Skype for Business Online End-user Communication Settings
I'm showing you here the Microsoft Learning website for the 70-347 exam, and this is important because I want to make sure that you understand how to go to the Microsoft Learning website for the test that you're currently studying for, and how to review the objective domains for that exam. So if I scroll down, Microsoft provides four different objective domains within the scope of this test. If I expand the third one, today we're specifically going to talk about how to configure Skype for Business Online end-user communication settings, and I'm going to cover how to configure the user in presence settings, and Microsoft actually provides a lot of different options both from the client-side point of view on how to configure your presence to your colleagues and to external users, but also from a tenancy point of view. So as the administrator, you can actually configure presence options globally as well. We're also going to talk about how external communication works, and then a very important subject, how to make sure that compliance obligations are met, especially around recording meetings and some of the other features. So, just keep in mind that compliance objectives are always a favorite both in the real world and on the test.

Manage Skype for Business Online Global External Communication Settings
Welcome to module 3: Managing Skype for Business Online Global External Communication Settings. Now in the previous module, our discussion really centered on what type of configuration options were available to your end users, and also how you as the administrator could actually configure those end user settings. But with this objective, our focus is centered on how to manage your Skype for Business Online settings from a tenant point of view, so really the global options. Throughout this discussion I'm going to provide instructions on how to manage things like external access, how to manage the domains that your Skype for Business Online tenant can actually communicate with because after all, you may not want to communicate with everybody in the world, how to manage Skype consumer connectivity, and then also how to brand your Skype for Business Online meeting invitations, and that may actually be something that you didn't know you could actually do, but you can actually change the look and feel of the meeting invitations that are sent out, and then lastly, I'm going to talk about how to tackle the push notification options. But first, I want to discuss and step you through how to connect your Skype for Business Online tenant with PowerShell, and that's really important because after all, it's relatively easy to make changes in the Office 365 Admin Center, but the reality is any seasoned administrator is going to understand how to manage their on-premises environment or even the cloud environment you may have with PowerShell. So get your favorite PowerShell editor ready, and let's begin.
