Lync 2010: Tools And Apps

June 16, 2011 Leave a comment

Microsoft has released the “Lync Power Pack” where some great “Tools and Apps” are made available. You can freely download them from the Lync Adoption and Training Kit website.

Overview of the current Lync Tools and Apps:

  • IM an Expert
  • Conversations Analyzer
  • Conversation Translator
  • Information Dashboard
  • Tabbed Conversations
  • Group Chat Stress
  • Lync Custom Intranet Site
  • Lync How-to

Example: Information Dashboard

Information Dashboard helps you start a conversation with a remote contact by providing current information about the contact’s location. For example, if you are calling a coworker or a client in Shanghai, China, you can open Information Dashboard and enter the location of Shanghai before making the call. Information Dashboard will return the day, date, time, whether you are calling during regular working hours, the weather forecast, and a news feed of articles related to the location. A contact’s location is saved after you set it and is recalled automatically when you start a new conversation.
