Now Skype4B will open OneDrive and when the user selects a file, the Permissions will  be set based on Skype4B participants in the meeting.


The file now loads on all the participants machines. Also, those participating in the coauthor session will have a “Call Monitor” window with some new options like IM and a Skype4B button that lets them move and close the “Call Monitor” window. (below)
