Persistent chat rooms are used a lot for call centers and work groups.
This is a feature that users of Jabber systems have as a standard feature and Lync Online does not have. I love Lync Online, but that feature would be great for our organization.
Having persistent chat would allow us to have a group chat window, opened all the time, 24 hours a day, opens automatically when Lync launches into the chat rooms. Also, security group and user group assigned as well.
This would be a great feature!!!
