You can add a user to Skype for Business in two ways:

After saving the changes, everything is set for outgoing calls for this user.
The order of connecting new users to outgoing calls routing via Zadarma after creating the routes and policies does not change. Users just have the required policies set like in the last step.
An alternative to MS admin center is to set using PowerShell command-line.

Set-CsUser -Identity "John Brown " -EnterpriseVoiceEnabled $true
3.2. Setting call policy for users
Grant-CsTeamsCallingPolicy -identity "Ivan Ivanov" -PolicyName AllowCalling

New-CsOnlineVoiceRoutingPolicy -Identity "Zadarma out" -OnlinePstnUsages "sbc5.teams.zadarma.com"
3.4. Assigning user with outgoing calls routing policy
Grant-CsOnlineVoiceRoutingPolicy -Identity "John Brown” -PolicyName ”ZadarmaOut,”
