Skype - Communication credits to act as a calling plan
For the users to be able to perform calls to PSTN lines from Skype for Business, we need a skype license, a phone system license and calling plan license including a bunch of minutes. For some users, this amount of minutes is way too much (and implicitly all the licenses combined is too expensive).
It would be so great that Microsoft enable "Communication credits" to be used to perform domestic and/or international calls without the needs of another calling plan.
The communication credits, will then act as a calling plan (pay as you use plan). It could also remain associated with the actual calling plan in case the minutes included in those plans are fully used.
totally agree was on a business call today and ran out of minutes had to go back to the portal to top up so that we could make calls again, this is a must and so important for business users not to loose calls please implement as soon as possible
Maybe the request get here a bigger ear 👂
I think it’s a must have...
Why I need to buy a calling Plan license??
Communication credits make it easier to sell the product, some times there are companies they have most of the time inbound calls...
The system force them now to buy these Calling Plan? Whit no argument...
This is especially true for employees who rarely need to make international calls. They shouldn't need a recurring subscription for international calls if they only make a couple international calls a year. This idea is also very similar to this one. https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/273493-office-365-admin/suggestions/31440550-low-volume-pstn-calling-plan
