RE: Skype for Business for Android – Exchange Settings (still) “Lost” v6.16.0.9

UPDATE (10 Jul 2017)

Microsoft publicly released on this day the Android version of Skype for Business 6.16.0.9.

The two Exchange settings “Skype for Business Anmeldeinformationen verwenden” and “Server automatisch erkennen” are now by default enabled regardless of previous states. A user must explicitly override the latter (off) to get EWS to work if auto config is not desired.

Likewise a user interface quirk as last reported, if “Skype for Business Anmeldeinformationen verwenden” is activated, the UI disables it when you revisit the config page. The option “Server automatisch erkennen” now correctly remains off with the given URL if configured as such before. As long as you hit Cancel and do not logoff, all should continue to function.

Note that IMs received over the Android mobile client remain on the main page until deleted. To do this, press and hold to pick the delete menu option. Simply trying to swipe away does not (yet?) delete an IM from the list.

Skype for Business for Android Mobile – Exchange Settings “Lost”

#skype4b

Like previous releases, the current version (6.16.0.7) of Skype for Business for Android mobile devices exposes 2 Exchange configuration options namely “Skype for Business Anmeldeinformationen verwenden” and “Server automatisch erkennen”.

If you disable the latter option, specify manually the “Exchange-Webdienste FQDN oder URL” and press OK to save the changes, the settings should take effect in an instance or so. The appearance of a list of upcoming skype4b meetings on the main and Calendar tab confirms that Exchange Web Services (EWS) connectivity is functioning as expected.

Nevertheless when you revisit the same Exchange configuration settings, you find that the “Skype for Business Anmeldeinformationen verwenden” is deactivated unexpectedly. Additionally, “Server automatisch erkennen” is now mysteriously re-enabled. By turning it off again, you see that the previously entered EWS FQDN/URL is still intact.

This is apparently a User-Interface only issue; from a functional perspective, everything should continue to work as normal until Microsoft fixes this UI quirk. Otherwise, you may have to logoff and sign-in to have the EWS settings take effect (or toggle the switches explicitly).
