Lync emoticons / Pasting pictures

    General discussion

  • This conversation is similar to "Pasting Pictures in Lync 2010 IM."   I wanted to raise it again saying that we also converted from Sametime.  The ability to post a screen shot right into Sametime was very helpful for troubleshooting problems across our company.  Now everything must be an attachment.  This adds a few additional steps in this process that is more annoying than anything.  


    Further, the emoticons are awful.  I cannot understand why you would not allow for custom ones to be imported.  Simple gif files would suffice.


    I hope so one can at least explain the thought process here and possibly open a ticket to add this functionality in a future release.

  • Agree!  Still over a year later and no ability to add additional emoticons or pictures to messages in Lync.  We also moved over from Sametime and I now have this whole (obsolete) library  I can no longer use.  Also miss the ability for pasting pictures/screenshots for training/troubleshooting.  In the Social Media world of today, Lync seems like a huge step backward.
