    Hi @Ian Goo

    Does this issue persist all the time?

    Does anyone else have the same problem in your organization?

    Is your environment online or on-premise?

    To troubleshoot your issue, we firstly recommend you try to clear your client cache file by following these steps:

    1. Log out of Skype for Business/Lync.
    2. Delete any sign-in info (only in Skype For Business 2013/2016)
    3. Exit Skype for Business/Lync.
    4. Navigate to Users > username > AppData > Local > Microsoft > Office > x.0 (x.0 corresponds to the Skype for Business/Lync version: 16.0 = Skype for Business 2016, 15.0 = Skype for Business 2013, 14.0 = Lync 2010) > Lync
    5. Delete sip_profileName folder. 
    6. Delete all files in Tracing folder. Do not delete the folder itself.
    7. Clear DNS cache: in Command Prompt run ipconfig /flushdns command.
