Lync 2013 – Tag for Status Change Alerts

Microsoft Lync 2013 simplifies business correspondence. By hosting features like instant messaging, video conferencing and voice-to-voice calls, and being fully integrated with Microsoft Outlook, Lync 2013 makes it possible to have purposeful conversations in a timely manner.

Lync 2013 – Status Change Alerts

A popular Lync 2013 feature is status change alerts. These are useful if, for instance, you are waiting for someone to get out of a meeting. A status change alert will allow you to call or instant message the individual once his or her availability changes. Rather than frequently checking his or her presence, tag the contact for status change alerts. This will save you time and allow you to continue working and alert when you the contact’s status changes. Simply do the following:

 1. Right-click on the contact. Select Tag for Status Change Alerts.

2. When the contact’s status changes, an alert appears at the bottom right corner of your screen (very similar to the way an IM alert appears).  You can click Untag, if you no longer wish to be alerted with status change alerts for this contact.
