Chat history and IM message lenght RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    I have few questions about the chat history and instant messages lenght.


    Is there a way to present the conversation history in the chat window when opening it? Meaning that you wouldn't have to use Outlook or Lync client's view of it.

    and the other question is that is there a way to extend the message lenght? Our coders are complaining about Lync not being able to handle the lenght of their messages (for example they paste a 30 lines of code in to the chat window and it gives an error about the lenght of the message).

    Thank you in advance!

  • Hi, temh,

    For conversation history, you can find it from the client under the conversation button, but not in the conversation windows.

    The first instant message in a conversation can be up to 800 characters long. Subsequent messages can be up to 8000 characters long. In your scenario, the client will show “This message is too long”. So if possible, I suggest you to transfer such a long code by file.
