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.

General Preferences

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?
