MS Lync Features Multiple Communication Tools

MS Lync is a unified communications platform. With Lync, you can keep note contacts’ availability; send an IM (instant message); or start or join an audio, video, or web conference — all through a consistent, familiar interface.

Lync is built to fully integrate with Microsoft Office. The Microsoft Lync 2010 desktop client is available for both Windows and Mac and mobile versions are available for Windows Phone, iPhone/iPad and Android devices.

If you don't yet have Lync downloaded, follow the ITS instructions.

In an Ag Communication Web Services blog post, Sonja Fuchs shares some ways to use Lync.

I use Lync quit a bit for quick messages with staff. Also, I've used Lync to see if someone might be available before I pick up the phone and even to replace the phone using the audio. I've also used the video feature with individuals and groups. The "share desktop" function is especially great to show someone else something rather than just trying to describe it in words. Give Lync a try!
