This post is also available in: Polish

The November Update for Lync 2013 Desktop Client introduced new features.

These features work out of the box from a client perspective, your administrator may have to enable/change settings on the server side for you to get the functionality shown below.

Features included in the November Update:

  • Photos of Sender/Receiver – View photos of sender/receiver inline with IM conversation
  • URL Photo Experience – Set your own photo from a public web site instead of using the corporate image
  • pChat Escalation – Escalate a Persistent Chat room to a Lync Meeting with one click
  • Login Trace Files – Easily access Lync client login logs
  • New Recording Options –Choose preferred resolution for client-side recordings

In the IM window new update add capability to view photos of the sender/receiver inline with the conversation. Unfortunately you can’t disable this feature. I think this is waste of space in IM window, and I would like to disable it but I can’t.
