In a previous post, I described how to apply a conferencing policy to an O365 account’s Skype for Business audio/video settings.
I also pointed towards this Technet article, which provides some additional information about these policies.
Reviewing this material however, I noticed that Technet entries (at least, the ones I’ve found so far) don’t go into a lot of detail about what each of these policies includes and excludes. In other words, how do you know what you’re turning on and off when using the Grant-CsConferencingPolicy cmdlet to modify an account?
The answer, is that you have to do a bit of research within your tenant.
First, you need to learn what conferencing policies can be applied to users within your tenant.
Here’s the syntax:
Get-CsConferencingPolicy -ApplicableTo firstname.lastname@example.org
The -ApplicableTo switch returns information about what conferencing policies can be activated for the user specified (and it’s a good bet that the same policies can be applied to others within your tenant).
This reveals what Skype conferencing elements are enabled within the BposSAllModality policy (as the name suggests, it’s “all”).
You can also obtain this information by using the simple cmdlet (without referencing a user):
By examining the properties of each conferencing policy, you can learn what makes sense for your environment.
