PolicyPak for Microsoft Lync client

Windows Lync is awesome! And lots of organziations are using it. And, let me guess, you’re using it (or are about to be) using it too.

Excellent. Well, then, you already know there’s no “In the box” way to manage the Lync client using Group Policy – which is a real bummer. Your Active Directory admins already know how to use Group Policy, but too bad they can’t configure the Lync client.

Except now you can, with the pre-configured PolicyPak for Lync Client. With this this pak, you’ll be able to deliver lots of Lync client settings PLUS lock down areas of the Lync client that users can access. So if you want to ensure that users can’t “mess up their Lync Client settings” then check out this video.

Note: This video shows Lync 2010, but we also have a pre-configured Pak for Lync 2013 as well !

There’s simply no way to manage the Lync client using Group Policy any other way. We’re more than a mere ADM template. PolicyPak is a true management system, which can lock down the Lync client and ensure users cannot work around your set policies.

You can deliver key settings and lock users out of scary Lync Client settings, as seen here.


You can dictate the Inactive and Away times for the Lync Client, like what is seen here.


Or ensure your users don’t mess with settings which are dictated from the Lync server by completely disabling a whole tab, like what is seen here.


Getting Lync server deployed isn’t easy. And when it is deployed, make sure your users are using it the way you intended, instead of working around your settings. With PolicyPak, you can deliver lots of Lync Client settings and ensure that you’re in charge and users’ settings are unchangeable.

Besides, once you’re using PolicyPak to manage the Lync Client, you’ll also get to manage all your other enterprise desktop applications the same way:Flash, WinZip, Firefox, and any custom applications you have. They’re 100% included – absolutely free.

It’s all included when you’re a PolicyPak Professional customer.

PolicyPak was designed by Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz – who “wrote the book” on Group Policy, runs GPanswers.com, and lives and breathes Group Policy and enterprise software deployments and desktop lockdown.

When you’re ready to get serious about managing the Lync client, PolicyPak is ready for you.
