  • [Microsoft Lync Server 2010] Call Lync IE Accelerator

    Bonjour,

    Actuellement, je sais bien, mon blog est moins fourni que par le passé, je vais annoncer un important changement professionnel prochainement qui monopolise pas mal de mon temps.

    En attendant des articles plus nombreux, en voici un sur un plugin intéressant, il s'agit de Call Lync IE Accelerator:

    Description:

    Lync already comes with an IE Add-On to enable you to make quick calls. However, it only recognises internationally formatted telephones numbers. For UK sites (and others I'm sure) the majority of numbers aren't recognised. This accelerator allows you to select the number and pass it through to Lync.
    Behind the scenes, all that really happens is that the number get passed in the format tel:your_number. If you have Lync installed, this will be enough to trigger a call.

    Facilement installable par le biais de ce lien, il s'avère très pratique: http://thoughtstuff.co.uk/accelerator/#

    Low cost et robuste, c'est un bon choix pour des environnements Lync ayant ce type de besoin, je l'avais justement validé en fin de l'année dernière, je vais faire un point plus complet très prochainement§
