How to set Lync Client avatar from server

    General discussion

  • Hi all,

    My old customer asks me that can we set the avatar - located in the intranet website for each user from the server.

    example: user user01 will be link to http://abc.local/avatar/user01.jpg

    At this time, some people configure avatar on his lync client by themselves, some people confuse about its. So, the administrator want to configure from server.

    I know that we can integrate with Sharepoint system for this case, but there 's not sharepoint server at their system at the moment.

    Tks for reading
