How to enable the enhanced presence privacy mode in Lync Server 2013?
Today someone asked me about enhanced presence privacy. So sharing same with you..
Using enhanced presence privacy mode, you can restrict your presence information so that it is visible only to the contacts listed in their Lync 2013 Contacts list.
PA: Lync 2013 user’s privacy settings are reset if he or she later signs in with previous version of Office Communicator.
NOTE: For these reasons, in a migration scenario, before you enable enhanced presence privacy mode:
- Ensure that every user has Lync 2013 installed.
- Define a client version policy rule to prevent previous versions of Communicator from signing in.
How to enable enhanced presence privacy?Open Lync Server Management Shell and type below mentioned command:
Get-CsPrivacyConfiguration | Set-CsPrivacyConfiguration -EnablePrivacyMode $True
The New-CsPrivacyConfiguration and Set-CsPrivacyConfiguration cmdlets have an EnablePrivacyMode parameter controls this option. When EnablePrivacyMode is set to True, the option to restrict presence information to contacts becomes available in the Lync 2013 Status options.
This command will enables privacy mode for all the privacy configuration settings currently in use in the organization.
