Getting to Know Skype Manager: How To Get Started
Hello. It is Mart “Tram” Abramov here again to talk about Skype Manager. Last week, I told you about Skype Manager and how it can assist you in your business. This week, I am going to tell you how you can set up your own Skype Manager in just a few easy steps to better control expenses and implement accountability with your users.
Skype Manager is an administrative web portal. The good news for you is that it means it is simple to set it up. The whole process can be done in as little as five minutes and requires going through three steps on our website:
- Create an administrator for your Skype Manager.
- Register your company by entering its information.
- Verify your email address
It is really that simple. Just follow this link to start the process.
Note that since any Skype account can be administrator of a Skype Manager, you will be asked if you already have one. My recommendation is to click on the “No, I don’t have a Skype Account” and create a new dedicated Skype Manager administrator account by doing so. It is likely that you will want to use your admin account only for managing Skype Manager. Of course, if you already have created a Skype Account beforehand for this purpose, you can use this account and skip the first step of the setup.
At the end of the registration for Skype Manager, an email is sent to the email address you provided. This will require verification of your email address. Be aware that you’ll get two emails from Skype — one which will welcome you to Skype and explain the basics. Usually it is the second email that contains the verification link. Watch for this one. When you receive it, just click the verification and you’re ready to go!
That’s it! If you’ve gone through these simple steps you should now be able to Skype Manager to manage Skype employee accounts and features from one administrative interface.
Don’t forget about the very useful Skype Manager User Guide that describes the functionality of Skype Manager in much more detail and should answer many of your questions. And of course, feel free to login to your account and contact customer support.
Next week, we will talk more about Business Accounts – what are they and are whether they are right for you.
In the meantime, we would love to hear from you. If you have any additional questions about Skype Manager that you’d like me to address in future columns, please leave a comment below.
