Skype For Business Client For The Mac

In addition, this update currently only addresses the issue for the sender side. On Mac, Skype for Business only lets you do this in Preferences, under Audio/Video.

Microsoft has released the new Skype for Business for Mac product on October 26, 2016, as a replacement for the old Lync for Mac IM client.

On the 'General' preferences page, the product contains a 'Collect Logs' button. When I click that, nothing happens.

I'd like to know where the product stores its log files when a user clicks on this button. On previous Lync versions, the log files were stored under ~/Library/Logs, but I did not see any Skype for Business log files there after clicking this button.

Where can I find the log files for this new client?
