  • Hey,

    It will work in Lync 2013 as well. You can test.

    The purpose of LyncAddContacts is to add the same contact groups and contacts to multiple users programmatically. This tool is build through Lync Power shell commands only.

    Let me know if you have any query.

  • Hi,

    the LUMT seems meet your needs, it's free.

    Project Description
    Lync User Management Tool (LUMT) enables administrators to manage contacts, ACEs and Privacy settings on behalf of Lync Server 2013 users.

    With LUMT, it is possible to:
    - Add contacts to default group or to a named group
    - Remove contacts from the contact list
    - Add ACEs to change the relationship level for the contacts in the contact list
    - Remove ACEs for the contacts in the contact list
    - Set privacy preference settings for the user to be either Private or Public (this corresponds to the settings in Options/Status in Lync client)
    - Change alert notification settings for the user (this corresponds to the settings in Options/Alerts in Lync client)

  • Hi,

    It no longer works for Lync 2013. there's a a third-party tool from Vytru called Contacts Manager. I tried LUMT but it doesn't work with UCS, so I've downloaded the free trial of Contacts Manager:

    I've summarized the highlighted features of the tool published on their website you can visit it for more information

    -create contact list templates and add groups and users to them.

    -Automatically Push/Populate your preset Lync contact list/Contacts to all yours users with one click

    -Update your contact list regularly by adding new hires and removing the users who left

    -Create and manage multiple Contacts List templates and assign each to a different group of users

    -Bulk Export/Import Microsoft Lync Contact lists/Contacts to Microsoft Excel 

    -Add External/Federated Lync Contacts who are outside of your organization to all users' Lync contact lists

    -Backup your Lync contact list templates to restore when moving Contacts Manager to another machine

    -Easy-to-use and single interface makes it the best Lync Contact List Management and Lync User Management tool
