Here you can read about Lync – the university's new, modern exchange.
Lync gives you access to several different services, such as
- voice calls
- video calls
- online chat
- the ability to view documents and presentations.
If you have previously used Skype, Lync will feel familiar to you.
Lync is available for both PC and Mac
Lync is available for both PC and Mac and can be used on computers, tablets and smartphones. If you do not have your own computer, you can call using our special Lync telephones. Lync allows you to choose whether to make calls using the telephone network or via the Internet, depending on what works best, is most secure or is financially most beneficial in each situation.
Attend Lync training
We recommend that you attend Lync training before you start using Lync. This will help you become familiar with all the settings and you can learn how to make best use of all the services.
Talk to your IT contact for more information
The IT contact person at your department or office has operational responsibility for planning, preparing, and in some cases carrying out installations, orders and training. Supplementary services will be introduced during 2014 for those who currently do not have a telephone extension.
