What’s New in Lync 2013


Lync 2013 offers a clean new look to help you communicate quickly and easily. You’ll also notice new features like persistent chat rooms, shared notes, and mobility that help you adapt Lync to your own personal workflow whether you’re in the office, at home, or on the go.

Top features to explore

CLEAN LOOK WITH QUICK LYNCS

Lync now uses a Quick Lync bar to provide more functionality with less clutter. The Quick Lync bar contains buttons that are revealed when you hover over a contact’s photo. You can start a chat, a call, a video call, or view a contact card with a single click. Hover over the three dots on the right side to see more options.

O15_001_contacts_345

Chat Rooms replaces Activity Feeds. With the Chat Rooms button O15_002_chatRoom_345nc, you can quickly access your chat rooms and topic feeds.

A new Full Screen icon O15_003_fullScreen_345nc lets you expand your Lync window to fill the screen.

The Add a contact button O15_004_addContact_345nc helps you quickly build your Contact list.

PERSISTENT CHAT ROOMS AND TOPIC FEEDS

Lync 2013 includes persistent chat rooms where you can hold ongoing discussions with the friends and co-workers you choose. Click the Chat Room button to search for chat rooms, monitor chat room activity, and read and post messages.

O15_005_chatRooms_crop_345

When you create a chat room, you can set its privacy level to:

  • Open, which anyone can find, read, or post messages in. No membership is required.
  • Closed, which anyone can find, but only members can read or post messages in. (Default)
  • Secret, which can be seen by members only.

Once you enter a chat room, the photos at the top show you its members and their current presence status. You can also view any member’s contact card by hovering over their photo and clicking the down arrow.

O15_026_Chat_345scaled

You can even create topic feeds so you’ll be notified if someone in one of your chat rooms adds a post containing specific words.

In the Persistent Chat options page, you can set notification alerts and sounds that apply when people post messages to your chat rooms.

KEEP YOUR FAVORITES CLOSE

For quicker access, a new Favorites group lets you build a list of people you contact most often. Just right-click a contact, and then click Add to Favorites in the drop-down list.

O15_005_addToFav3_crop_345

NEW DISPLAY OPTIONS

The selections on the Contacts view give you many new display options:

Click Groups to see your contacts and chat rooms organized by the groups you’ve defined. Click Status to see your contacts organized by availability (online, away, unknown, or unavailable). Click Relationships to see them grouped according to the privacy relationships you’ve defined for them, or click New to see a list of people who’ve asked to be included on your Contact list.

O15_008_relationships_345

Use the new Contact List options page to set up how you want to sort and display contacts. You can select an expanded, two-line view that shows contacts’ pictures, or a condensed one-line view. You can also sort contacts alphabetically or by availability.

TABBED CONVERSATIONS

With the new tabbed conversations feature, you can now keep all your calls, instant messages (IM), and chat rooms in one conversation window. The tabs along the left side of the conversation window let you navigate easily among all active conversations.

O15_009_TabbedConv_345

Use the pop-out button O15_010_popOut_345nc to break out a single conversation into its own window, and then resize it as you like. Then use the pop-in button O15_011_popIn_345nc to add the window back to the main conversation window. You can also use this pop-out/pop-in feature in a meeting where video or content is being presented.

Lync can remember your conversation state even when you sign out and sign back in.

The icons at the bottom of the conversation window let you quickly add others to an IM conversation or upgrade it to an audio call, a video call, or a presentation with file-sharing and web conferencing tools (whiteboard, meeting notes, shared notebooks, and attachments). Hovering over an icon will reveal its communication mode and the options available to you; clicking the icon converts your IM to that mode.

O15_012_convControls_345nc

NEW VIDEO FEATURES

With the Quick Lync bar, you can start a video call with a contact with just one click.

Before you place or accept a video call, you can see a preview of your own video in the invitation.

O15_013_videoPreview_345 

With the new Gallery View, you automatically see everyone in the video conference. When video is not available, a speaker’s photo will appear. The gallery controls enable you to see participants’ names and identify active speakers. The gallery shows the most relevant people in the meeting at all times by bringing the dominant speaker’s video “into focus” to the standing row, and displaying the photos of less active participants in the sitting rows.

O15_014_vidCon_345scaled

When there are more than five participants in a video conference, the five most active participants’ video windows appear in the top row, and photos of the other participants appear below. You can also select one or more of the participants to be visible at all times.

BUILT-IN ACCESSIBILITY

Lync now provides high DPI support, enabling you to scale text and graphics for 125% and 150% dots per inch. High-contrast support means that Lync is visually appealing, even when used with the different high contrast themes of Windows.

Additionally, Lync now offers more than 100 keyboard shortcuts for important functions, giving you direct access without a mouse. For example, you can now press ALT+C to accept a call, or ALT + I to ignore it, without even having to tab or set the focus. You can also use your keyboard to end a call (ALT+Q), start OneNote (CTRL+N), and open the Tools menu (ALT+T).

Extensive screen reader support in Lync 2013 ensures that all notifications, incoming requests, and instant messages are read aloud so you’re always kept in the loop.

New meeting features

JOIN A LYNC MEETING WITH JUST ONE CLICK

Whether you’re in your office or on the road, you can join a Lync Meeting with only a single click or touch. You no longer need to write down or remember dial-in numbers and passcodes. Just click Join Lync Meeting from an Outlook meeting reminder on your computer, or from the calendar or meeting pane on a Windows Phone, iOS, or Android device.

O15_025_LyncMeeting_crop_75_345scaled

MEETING SPACE OPTIONS

When scheduling a meeting, you can select your own dedicated space, or you can create a new meeting room with a new ID and password. This lets you customize your meeting options to better fit your requirements, meeting type, or the participants. For example, if you have external participants, specific presenters, or confidential information to discuss, you might want to create a more controlled meeting space.

Depending on the type of meeting, you can now decide whether you want to mute the audience and allow or block video sharing when scheduling the meeting. These options are available on the Meeting Options page and are recommended when you have a meeting with more than 20 participants.

O15_015_meetingOptions

EXPANDED MEETING CONTROLS

Easy-to-use audio controls in the meeting room let you mute and unmute yourself, change your audio devices, and even transfer seamlessly to another number.

O15_041_Devices_345nc

The Share menu gives you access to all presentable content in one place, such as Desktop, PowerPoint presentations, Poll, Whiteboard, and OneNote.

You’re notified every time you share content, with an easy-to-view pop-up in the meeting.

O15_017_youAreSharing_345

You can even select multiple programs to share if you need to work with more than one program.

You can now upload presentations that contain video clips. Just upload the PowerPoint presentation and point the mouse over the slide to unhide the video controls to play, pause, or adjust the audio.

While another participant is presenting a PowerPoint deck, you can review the slides privately, go back to the presenter’s view, or take over the presentation if you need to co-present.

O15_018_viewingPrivately_345

As the presenter of the meeting, you can allow or block sending videos. No Attendee Video lets you restrict video sharing to presenters only. This option is helpful when you have a large meeting and need to limit access to presenters only.

O15_019_Actions_345nc

Hide peoples’ names under their photo or video in the gallery by using Hide Names.

Click Everyone an Attendee to instantly change all other presenters to attendees.

PICK A LAYOUT… ANY LAYOUT

Depending on your meeting type, you can select a specific view of content, presenter, or meeting participants by using the Pick a layout button O15_020_pickLayout_345nc.

O15_021_views1

Gallery View shows all the participants’ photos or videos. Speaker View shows the meeting content with the presenter’s video or photo in the lower-right corner of the meeting window. Presentation View shows only the meeting content. You get a full view of the content, but you won’t see the participants. Compact View shows only the participants’ photos. Just hover over a photo to see their contact information.

When you record a meeting, the recording is automatically saved in a format (MP4) that plays in Windows Media Player. You can easily share the file with anyone, or use the Publish feature in Lync Recording Manager to post the recording to a shared location.

EASY COLLABORATION WITH SHARED NOTES

OneNote provides new ways to collaborate during a meeting. You can use shared notebooks and co-edit with meeting participants in real time during a meeting, or take notes for your personal use after the meeting. OneNote Share simplifies communication and follow-up while reducing errors caused by later transcription.

O15_022_OneNote1_345nc

All team members can access the shared notes to contribute information, brainstorm ideas, or use the notebook pages as a virtual whiteboard. The OneNote window is automatically docked to the meeting window, and people and content shared in the meeting are automatically added to Notes.

You can use the Manage Presentable Content menu to change permissions, rename, or remove content.

When Lync detects that you’re giving a presentation, it automatically assigns you a Do Not Disturb – Presenting presence status. This blocks IMs and other disruptive communications from appearing.

LYNC WEB APP

Lync Web App allows PC and Mac users to join a Lync Meeting from within a web browser and now delivers a full Lync Meeting experience, including:

HD video, which brings life and expression to Lync, letting people “see what you mean” in new ways.

Voice over IP (VoIP) so you can connect to your meeting from anywhere without getting hit with call origination fees.

Instant messaging, which ensures that you can communicate silently when necessary, such as when you’re in a coffee shop or on a train.

Desktop, application, and PowerPoint sharing so your content can be seen by other meeting participants, enabling you to continue collaborating without missing a beat!

O15_024_LyncWebApp_345scaled

“Anywhere Access”

Lync makes it easy for you to communicate anywhere you have Internet or cellular access, by allowing you to be reached by name wherever you are. You can switch among devices as you choose, and be confident that you’ll have a familiar and consistent user experience across computer, phone, browser, and tablet.

LYNC FOR MOBILE CLIENTS

Lync for mobile clients enables you to maintain your presence wherever you are through your Windows Phone, iPhone, iPad, or Android device. You can manage your time better by deciding your availability and controlling interruptions. You can email, IM, call, or even join an audio conference with just one touch.

O15_023_LyncMobile_mag1

Lync for mobile clients gives you the best productivity across devices. You can view your colleagues’ presence in real time and choose the best way to connect – IM, email, or call. When you call, Lync uses your Enterprise Voice number so you can communicate with a single, consistent identity and avoid call origination charges.

O15_027_LyncMobile_mag1

Connectivity is available both on your corporate network and on your mobile carrier data channel without requiring a virtual private network (VPN). You can join an audio conference with a single touch, without having to remember passcodes or PINs.

O15_029_LyncMobile_mag

Lync for mobile clients also lets you search your corporate directory and connect to federated contacts on other networks.

    @John — In Lync 15 focus major focus areas were multi-party video and spanning across more devices. You'll see some improvements, for example you won't observe tearing  (given there's sufficient bandwidth)  or shaking of the mouse pointer while sharing hence rendering will be smoother. But in terms of refresh/frame rate and bandwidth usage, app/desktop sharing in Lync 15 won't be drastically different from Lync 14. — Lync Team

    @Eric E — Thank you for your suggestions. While the features you mentioned — spell check, image pasting, and off-line messaging — are not supported in Lync 2013, they are being considered for a future release. I have forwarded your comment to the appropriate people on the Lync team.

    Lync for mobile clients sounds really good.  I have users asking about this, but there are some problems and does not always work.  I hope it will be better in the Lync 2013.

    @King Lau

    Thanks for the feedback – the ability to hide offline contacts is something we've heard many customers would like to see.  We have this near the top of our list of features to introduce in the future.

    Before Lync 2013 I got all company contacts in my Outlook contact folder, which was in sync with my Windows Phone 7.5 address book. I had all incoming calls recognized and may not worry about obsolete contacts info.

    With Lync 2013 all company contacts was moved to Outlook Lync contacts subfolder under Contacts. My phone address book now empty. When I copied company contacts from Lync contacts into Contacts, I had doubled contacts in Lync contacts folder. I can not call my coworkers from address book, I need to search Outlook directory or open Lync app. What are you doing, people?

    You can join a meeting with one click in Outlook, but I want to be able to join a regular meeting with one click from within Lync.

    What this would take is the ability to create an end point that is virtual, named for example "Daily Production Meeting" that looks like any other endpoint, but always auto answers. Anyone on any device can then go to the meeting without invoking Outlook, or having an invite, to join, with one click, without opening Outlook.

    Adding the option of Whitelisting would be nice, but not in my view essential. ( Ever been embarrassed wlaking into a meeting room and realising you know no one there, and you are in the wrong room. Doesnt need a locked door, just the humiliation of realising you are in the wrong room.

    Any plans to have syncronised conversations between clients/devices? Ie if I have a conversation on my iPad, it would be good if I could resume it on my desktop client as well (ie like Skype IM sessions)

  15. glen says:

    What about some spell checking? It is 2012, why isn't spell check available in Lync?

    I just want my spell check.

  16. StevenJ says:

    For the love of all that is holy can we get a spell check?

  17. LucyBoop says:

    what about BlackBerry device compability?

  18. Rob says:

    Nevermind spell check… give us working UNC links!

  19. willi says:

    still missing the busy-on-busy option. Nobody want to recieve additional call when already in call. Please

  20. John says:

    Can any one help or say they have gotten Micrsoft's ear on this?…  The "features" are all great except that there are thousands of users posting daily about the poor desktop sharing performance of Lync.  At 500k or more needed per stream to each attendee, Lync is unusable for desktop sharing in its current state.  Livemeeting, Gotomeeting, WebEx, and virtually every other tool out there works fine over same connections, but Lync's choppy performance is compeletely unusable in many cases.  It is the one thing holding us back from eliminating all other competing tools.

  21. Ken Circeo, Lync Team says:

    @AaronM — Synchronized conversations among devices is a feature request that we are planning for future versions. Moving conversations across endpoints will make them truly mobile, and we envision a world that includes not only movement of Instant Messaging sessions, but also Voice and Video modalities. That said, our short term priority is bringing Voice and Video modalities to our mobile offerings.

  22. Ken Circeo, Lync Team says:

    @Glen @StevenJ — Unfortunately, spell check is not featured in Lync 2013 for most users. However, if you're using Lync on a Windows 8 device with a touch keyboard, then it does support the Windows spell checker.

  23. Ken Circeo, Lync Team says:

    @Rob — Though I failed to list it in this article, Lync 2013 *does* allow for hot UNC links within an IM. Keep in mind that while auto-link recognition is on by default, your sys admin has the option of turning it off, which would render any such links as straight text.

  24. JasonG says:

    We just migrated to 2010 and are rolling out the VoIP parts too. What is the upgrade path from 2010 to 2013? Have there been any improvements in VoIP? Is there voice/video between Lync and Skype or other federated partners? There is a "Lync Web App", but this isn't the same as the CWA, or is it? (many of my users would like that feature back).

  25. Ken Circeo, Lync Team says:

    @LucyBoop — RIM offered an integrated solution that worked for IM and presence in Lync 2010, you might consider contacting them re: plans to integrate with Lync 2013.

  26. Eric E says:

    Spell check, paste in screen shots and mostly OFF LINE MESSAGEING!!!! Mix in the features you already have in Sharepoint Workspace, AKA Office communicator. I would love to select 8 people and just send an IM. Oh, wait, 2 are off line…()*&*(&%^*(&%&^%

  27. stephen says:

    Is there any plans to have lync more like skpye in terms of outbound calling without having to configure it though a physical phone? Our office currently uses skype as a phone/chat/group chat/desktop sharing etc. It would be nice to have lync have VoIP calling without a PBX box or any other setup. (Like I said, just like skype)

  28. Tim Beechey says:

    Any idea if you plan to support voice over wifi or 3G on your mobile clients?  This really would be a game changer!

  29. King Lau says:

    It'd be great if we could hide offline contacts to make the lists cleaner

  30. ppdc says:

    How about copy and paste screen shots?

  31. mgerio says:

    How about the capabilty to send an IM to your colleague even if he is offline?

    Just like in facebook

  32. markus says:

    Is there an option to disable ClearType and other anti-aliasing from GUI? Lync 2010 doesn't have one and it ignores the system setting too.

  33. Roy says:

    lync client and citrix. we currently cannot publish the client via citrix because the desktop sharing does not work correctly(it shares the citrix desktop which is blank). is this fixed or going to be? any plans to fix it?

  34. LH says:

    Question,

    My company has a Lync 2010 server, could I use a Surface RT (running Lync 2013) within my company's server? (is there backwards compatibility?)

  35. Mert says:

    how can I mute the messages received and just receive the alert in the task bar?

  36. Mehdi says:

    Hi Does Lync 2013 Mobile client supports voip ? Can i Call My Friends and have voice and video without being charged for call fees ? Does it work on lan too or it only works on internet?

  37. HG says:

    Question – can you force the meeting layout/view (Gallery, Speaker, Compact, etc) to the participants or the view only applies to the presenter?

  38. Randall says:

    Is there any way to customize the conversation window? Many people that I have a conversation with have long names and there name appears to the left of every message that they send (as if I need to know who is talking when they are the only person I am chatting with.) Can't there just be a text balloon or something like Apple and Android use for texting?

  39. Dianne says:

    It would make the whole thing more usable if you could change the settings to record im chats locally!! My company switched to Lync last August. I refuse to use it.

  40. Nate says:

    Seriously no spell check that is VERY STUPID!

  41. Spike548 says:

    The desktop support that Lync provides needs a solution so that we can perform administrative tasks in a Lync Shared Desktop Session. Currently you get a locked or blank screen when presented with the Adminstrative login.

    Still have to use Webex to get round this.

  42. mike says:

    For every 100 new features presented, they'll always want 110.

  43. Steve Daniels says:

    All the comments surrounding missing features from the Lync 2013 client are features that should have been in an initial build.  Is the Lync 2013 client development team a one man band or something?  What are the blockers of the key functionality that is demanded time and time again?

    Steve

  44. Eric E says:

    We have been using Lync (2010 currently) (OCS) for years. Its annoying to try to send an IM to a group, but 1 person is offline so Lync fails. Why is Microsoft still obsessing about “presence” and not what people really want, to communicate. They had a finished product when they purchased Groove Office. It is still a better IM that Lync.

    …And spell check or cut and paste a picture in Lync 2012 yet? Groove could 5 years ago. Perhaps Lync 360? Or will it be Lync 2014?

  45. Nate says:

    Chalk up another request for spell check. I've had it in Gaim/Pidgin since the early 2000's. Would love to see it in Lync too.

  46. ChadF says:

    Huge mistake not having a spell checker by now!  How can we push for an enterprise wide IM to replace other open source IM tools in use, when it doesn't have a spell checker.

  47. Alyssa says:

    Seriously!!! Please put a spell check in Lync, if i have to open up a blank email to get the correct spelling of scenario or hilarious one more time I'm going to flip out.    I sound like such an idiot when I'm going along and do the old "admi tit" typo & w/o seeing it, press send, esp if it's to a higher up.  Even this text box seems to have spell check, why can't Lync!?!?  Please help me stop embarrassing myself and add a spell check in future versions.

  48. Listen2Customers says:

    Put spell check in the dang thing. Before every release since OC, i research to find out if spell check was added, and yet none of you guys seem to get it. Search for Lync spell check and look at the results, read what customers have to say and for once LISTEN!

  49. Ivon says:

    What about a capture a part of the desktop screen during IM? I've read it's not in Lync. I'm actually with Sametime.

  50. ghlee says:

    How can i disable the Lync hot keys? not really sure why Ctrl+S needs to be enabled to save IM since if the policy is enabled then IM will be auto saved.

    We have a need to disable all IM conversations being saved and works well with the in-band provisioning policy. But then the hot key still allows saving into outlook conversation history folder!

  51. Gimli says:

    How on earth is Spell check "… being considered for a future release"??? Boggles my mind.

    If you use any other software that involves typing messages, odds are it has spell checking. It's something that has been around since the dawn of IM. This should have been a feature in the first version released, nay – the first BETA released.

    An IM client without spell check is like a car without brakes. Fix it. I'll be using Pidgin(http://www.pidgin.im/) in the meantime.

  52. Ken S says:

    Persistent "Compact View" – I agree with others that having to change this every conversation is terribly annoying that you can't change it once and for all.

  53. Steve says:

    It truly is unbelievable that MS refuses to put in a spell check… or is it that your technology can't handle it? Every other IM client in use has spell check BUT Lync. Just another example of how corporate America ignores the real needs customers request to give us added features that nobody wants and will need 50 updates to fix.

  54. speller says:

    spell check . what is so hard about spell check?

  55. mike says:

    Understand this. Microsoft has decreed that lync 2013 won't have spell check. If you want spell check you must upgrade your OS to windows 8. You WILL upgrade to windows 8 whether you like it or not!

    You will be assimilated, resistance is futile!

  56. Mitch says:

    I would love to see the same docking functionality in Lync desktop client that OneNote has.

  62. Timothy says:

    What brain dead UX designed decided that “hovering” your mouse over regions of Lync was a good idea? This has completely perplexed our entire non-savvy non-IT staff. We have had too much wasted training time over this just because icons don’t appear immediately like Lync 2010. What the hell is wrong with showing the buttons right away without hovering? And hovering over the handset icon to get the dialing pad while CLICKING on it mutes the call is, hands down, the dumbest UX decision since Clippy.

    When i try to save my whiteboard from a presentation it only saves a thin strip of the whitboard not the entire whiteboard. This occurs if i save it as a png fil or if i save it to one note. Can you explain why or what i am doing wrong?

  66. TomH2 says:

    I’d love to see a configuration option whereby only one user could initiate a Lync IM session with me at a time. Or perhaps I could set a limit to thenumber of simultaneous sessions. First one in gets a session, all others would get a busy message saying
    the party they are trying to reach is already in a Lync session with someone else. I’ve had too many times where I get three or four persons connect to me in separate Lync sessions and been on the phone at the same time.

    It’s crazy and it gets to be too much at times.

  67. Peter Dunn says:

    Absolutely agree with Timothy’s comment:

    "What brain dead UX designed decided that "hovering" your mouse over regions of Lync was a good idea? This has completely perplexed our entire non-savvy non-IT staff. We have had too much wasted training time over this just because icons don’t appear immediately
    like Lync 2010. What the hell is wrong with showing the buttons right away without hovering? And hovering over the handset icon to get the dialing pad while CLICKING on it mutes the call is, hands down, the dumbest UX decision since Clippy."

    Have been trying to find out whether there is any workaround to this to allow the Dial Pad to be the default display without having to "hover", but seems not? Also mixing Dial pad and Mute is just stupid. As a tech savvy user, this continually gets in my way
    when trying to dial …

  68. Me says:

    What happened to "outlook properties"? In Lync 2010 (and office communicator), I could select a contact and and navigate to "outlook properties" to find their alias. I can not find this feature in Lync 2013. Can someone help with this? Was it removed?
    Is it possibly disabled be default or by an admin? Advise please.

  69. David says:

    I switch my conversation windows to "Compact View" every time (I know you guys are working so I can set this as my default instead of "Gallery View", thank you) but every time I drag my conversation window to a different monitor, it resets to "Speaker
    View" which also takes up screen space with blue placeholder avatars.

    What happened to "outlook properties"? In Lync 2010 (and office communicator), I could select a contact and and navigate to "outlook properties" to find their alias. I can not find this feature in Lync 2013. Can someone help with this? Was it removed? Is it
    possibly disabled be default or by an admin? Advise please. "

    I am not able to find "Open Outlook Properties" in Lync 2013. This is very annoying as I need to search for the same contact again in Outlook and then go for Outlook properties.

    Is this being moved to somewhere else within Lync 2013 or is removed totally? Any specific reason for making this change?

    any plans on adding nudging or shaking the screen to alert someone they have a message after no response?

    While dialing into Lync meetings that reach capacity (250) I sometimes lose the list of participants (even though I am a Presenter). The following message shows: "The full participant list isn’t available for large meetings." These are not Large Lync Meetings
    but rather regular lync meetings. Any assistance on why I’m losing the participant list? Thanks!
