This is mainly useful for people who work part time Capability: - Outlook gives option to select work hours - Lync gives option to record normal voice mail greeting message and OOF greeting message which needs to be turned by calling mailbox number when you are away.

There is not a known way of modifying the Join Skype Meeting text when using the New Skype Meeting in Outlook. Being able to modify it would cause less confusion as we work through the rebranding.
Problem/Requirements: 1. We have an existing impromptu Lync meeting (IM/Chat) with a few people working on an incident. The incident is judged to be a Major Incident and we want to send out an Outlook Meeting invite (meeting starting NOW) where the meeting offers the automatic "Join Online" option as Lync meetings originating in an Outlook Meeting. 2. If we try copying "Meeting Entry Info" into an outlook meeting, ...more »

I do not know if this ...more »
I would like to see a feature in the Lync Client so that the organizer can see if all the invited delegates has arrived yet. Maybe a second view of the delegates list. Now you have to switch over to Outlook to see who is invited and then back to Lync and compare the lists.
In Outlook, if you elevate an email to an IM conversation, the original email is not marked as read.
I had fun writing this post last night and pushing the boundaries of Lync in OWA. It got me thinking. The addition of a 'Meet Now' button on the Contact card, right beside "Schedule a meeting", would be perfect. It could create the meeting space, log you into the Lync Online meeting in your browser and send an invite to your Lync contact to join the meeting. The new Lync Online experience in the browser makes good use ...more »
