2013/11/11

The Lync 2013 Client Update (CU3) November is out.

It has several new features which can be found here:

  • Spell Check without breaking presence
  • Recording Options
  • Return of Web Photo Option

The last one needs to be enabled via some PowerShell magic to make it work.  Run the following:

$PolicyEntry=New-CsClientPolicyEntry -Name EnablePresencePhotoOptions -Value true
$currentClientPolicy=Get-CsClientPolicy -Identity Global
$currentClientPolicy.PolicyEntry.Add($PolicyEntry)
Set-CsClientPolicy -Instance $currentClientPolicy

Credit goes to Jen’s as he posted similar information several months ago but the post disappeared which I assume had something to do with the feature being pushed back to this patch.
