Default Contacts pinned to favourites. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I just had a quick query.

    Is it possible to set a default contact across all users that use skype for business within the business environment and place it under the favorites section? This will also need to be there permanently.

    I appreciate any help given.

    Many thanks.

  • Hi,

    The best contact list is created by the user themselves.

    However, if you want to achieve, you can also try to use the team members from AD and add them as contacts to a user’s contact list with “Set-CsPrivacyConfiguration -Identity Global -AutoInitiateContact $True”

    More details:

    You can also use Exchange Distributions Groups whose membership will be automatically updated in Lync, but you still need to manually add the Distribution Groups.

    You can refer to the link below:
