Join a meeting/Meetings with people outside AU

When you set up a Skype meeting, the participants can either use the Skype client, Skype Web App or a phone to join the meeting.

  • Use your Outlook calendar to set up the meeting
  • The meeting invitation will contain the various options for participants to join the meeting  incl. telephone number and conference id. This information is required if you use a phone to dial in to the meeting. If you have a meeting with people outside AU who do not have Skype installed, they can also choose to click ”Try Skype Web App”. If Skype is installed, we recommend that you click ”Join Skype meeting”. Currently, it is only possible to use the Skype web app in Internet Explorer. At a later point in time, it will be possible to use other browsers.

External contacts

If your partners outside AU also use Skype, you can use Skype together. All you have to do is add them to your list of contacts. You will need their SIP address. Usually, their SIP address is the same as their email address.

New email address/New SIP address

For optimum Skype performance, the SIP address (Skype address) and email address should be the same. If you change your email address via mit.au.dk (Self-service), or because you have transferred to another unit, remember to ask your IT support team to update your SIP address. If the addresses are not the same, the calendar integration with Exchange will not work, and your availability (presence) will not be updated automatically based on your calendar.
