Lync delegate access without Enterprise Voice enabled


  • I need the delegate access functionality but due to our current configuration we do not (yet) have enterprise voice setup or enabled. We have assistants that are scheduling meetings on behalf of others and need the conferencing functionality. I have only been able to get this work when the enterprise voice is enabled for the delegate, does any one know of a workaround that I can use and not have to enable enterprise voice??

    Thanks in advance!

  • Delegates is a feature of Enterprise Voice so you won't have it until you enable enterprise voice.

    (Perhaps you can turn it on just for those that need it?)

  • Hi,


    Agree with Matt. The feature is not available without enabling Enterprise Voice.

  • yes thats what I thought, I was not aware of any other workaround but wanted to make sure that I had not missed anything.

  • Hi,

    you can do a workaround using SEFAutil.exe!

    Other way is, enable User for EnterpriseVoice... wait until replication is done,

    login with Lync User, add wanted delegates, logout... change back User from Enterprise Voice  "RCC" or what you had configured before...

    delegation is left Database.

    Finally you are able to use delegation features (a.e. schedule Lync meetings for other calendar)

    This workaround is a sophisticatedly todo. Do do it only for a few users...

    As soon someone has a great idea to it smarter, as example with some SQL statements, just give me a hint.
