Subscribe to a Service Profile via Agent Assistant

To receive service calls, Skype for Business must be started and the agent must be signed in.

By default, the profile 'Off Duty' is set after login (this is configurable - also other profiles could be configured as default profile by admin).

The agent must actively log on to the corresponding profile via the Agent Assistant (right click on the AA icon).
