Using a Distribution list from Outlook to create a mass chat in Lync RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've lately had to add multiple people slowly for our team chats in the morning. Can someone help me if there is a way to use a disribution list from Outlook 2010 to make a chat quicker through Lync? What would the steps be for that process? Thank you for reading and taking the time to help!

  • Is there a way to disable this feature? 

    We don't want users to be able to start group chats this way.
