Activities in Process Builder

You can use out-of-the-box activities for Skype for Business to execute actions in process-based apps.

An activity is a functional unit, or task, in a process-based app. Activities that integrate with a third-party system provide access to the API functionality for that system in a simple, point-and-click, form-entry format. This means that you can easily leverage APIs without writing code.

Message-based approvals let you route a process based on yes/no logic with typed keywords. This provides a simple alternative to submitting a form. You can use message-based approvals in Skype for Business.

For more information, refer to Create or Change a Skype For Business Template for an Approval.

Access Tokens

You can create access tokens for Skype for Business.

An access token is a secure object that stores an endpoint (usually a URL) and authentication credentials to connect to a service or technology. Often this is an external or third-party service, like Salesforce or SharePoint, but access tokens can also connect to an AgilePoint NX enviornment, local database, or other types of technologies. Once an access token is created, application designers can simply select and reuse it, rather than entering the credentials each time they are needed.

For more information, refer to Access Token for Skype for Business.
