Lync Online: Persistent Chat Rooms

Persistent chat rooms are used a lot for call centers and work groups.

Presumably this is to accommodate the extra content's size; however it's annoying as generally you place a window where you want it / don't expect it to change.
Having this auto-resize as a user preference rather than mandatory feature would allow... more »
