disappointing, not reliable
In the feature list it says: "Stay connected while reducing resource consumption. Lync provides background and connected standby connectivity so you never miss an important conversation. " - this doesn't work for me under Windows 10. Quite disappointing. Reinstalling didn't fix it. Poor support resources for this app. Interface not very friendly for a non-touchscreen PCMore
Poor implementation of good ideas
I have a Surface (and the benefit of a touch screen). Even so, it's very difficult to have multiple conversations. I also have a difficult time switching between meetings. The "app" opens, but then directs me to another program. Like others, I can't seem to share my screen, and it's difficult to see what people are writing, if you want to look at the screen. Pretty horrible overall.More
The quality of this application is beneath Microsoft.
I use this on a Windows 10 computer without any touch screen details. The interface is by far the worst collection of good intentions I have ever seen for a PC application. My office requires it though, so I suppose I will continue to be a loyal user just the same.More
Acceptable client experience, but...
Given that Skype for Business is pretty widely available, I'm wondering when this app will get a refresh. It shouldn't be too hard to swap out the colors and logos at the very least.More
Lots of problems
It has a random pattern of dropping bits of conversations. At some times, it sends, but reports it doesn't, sometimes it just exits, right when someone sends a question or response, and I can't see any history.More
Where is Skype for Business?
The flagship OS (Windows 10), one of Microsoft's big pushes (Skype), and we have a thing still called Lync. This app is buggy, disconnects often, and creates several conversation histories with the same person. Definitely a long way to go to catch up to its competition. Seems so simple to fix these things, but apparently not worth their time.More
Too much stuff all over the place
cant find my way around and cant join multiple meetings. Makes it impossible to follow multiple conversationsMore
Cannot share screen
Share screen option is grayed out. I can see other people's screen but cannot share mine. Bad, bad, bad user experience. Not intuitive. This is Microsoft's business tool, please spend sometime on it. I can't believe that the Lync version of Mac saved me from a horrible day.More
Definitely has issues
Quite unprofessionally done. I can send and receive IMs, but the application has issues associated with voice communications. Advice on the application says "From the setting charm select Permissions". Permissions is not listed. This would appear to be not completely tested. UI is childishly set out with huge fonts and icons. I assume that this is due to trying to address touch devices, however the application is for PC. I found it quite a step backwards for Microsoft and am very disappointed.More
- Communicate from anywhere with an Internet connection.
- Easily switch between IM, audio and video, or use all of them at the same time.
- Stay connected with your colleagues using real-time status updates, presence information, and quick contact search and management.
- Join Lync Meetings with a single touch, and easily switch between IM, group video, and content views.
- Take control of shared screens, apps, or PowerPoint decks in Lync Meetings.
- Stay connected while reducing resource consumption. Lync provides background and connected standby connectivity so you never miss an important conversation.
- Use apps side-by-side when you need to reference another app or website while using Lync. You can snap Lync to the side of your screen so you can multitask and use both apps at the same time.
