What's New in Version 6.5
• With this release, we have made joining your meetings a lot easier. The app now intelligently detects meetings hosted on non-federated domains, and lets you join as a guest user. You no longer have to worry about signing in and out of the app before a meeting.
• General improvements
The update actually connects to our servers now, whereas before it wouldn't even do that. I guess that earns it a few stars, begrudgingly. Interface is classic Microsoft: 1. Buries contacts in a sub-menu. Seriously Lync team? That's what this app is. 2. Presents needless information. I do not need nor want to see my calendar in the chat client.
So, I guess we're up to 2 stars now whereas before it was a completely broken 0 stars. Yipee. Maybe people will stop calling the helpdesk asking why their Lync mobile isn't working. Seriously, just horrible for those of us trying to manage BYOD when you just go and break stuff.
Not able to join any calls since last update.
This was working fine before the last update. I've always had problems joining meetings/calls from the app but it seems the last update broke that functionality completely. Pretty useless app if your entire company uses this to meet and communicate but I can't do any of those things with the app. I'll have to stick to the desktop until they fix this...
I'm watching you
My staff is great but this app allows me to check in on the go while ensuring my staff is doing what they need to do and has the ability to easily reach me while I am out of the office.
