Automatically Adding Lync Contacts in Microsoft Lync
There is no such way to add a Lync contact list template to all users in the Microsoft Lync Server. Lync Administrators are always challenged by the fact that their Lync users do not have consistent and updated Lync contact lists. Business Productivity teams within an organization believe that having a central Lync contact list template(s) that is populated to all Microsoft Lync users is key for thier day-to-day interaction with the Microsoft Lync client. We could not agree more. The Lync contact list is so important for Lync users' adoption, and so is the users' time. In order to increase Lync users' adoption and save your employees' time by not letting them build their own buddy lists, you need to do this for them as an Admin. Yet, at Vytru we have a great solution for this.
