I must give credit where credit is due: My latest creation was inspired by the “Who Can Federate” tool created by Lync MVP, Matt Landis.
As a big fan of Lync federation, I found myself regularly hovering over sender names in Outlook and hoping to see the presence orb light up to indicate that they too are a Lync user who supports federation.
Unfortunately, it’s not that simple, as you need to actually open an IM window to the sender before federation takes place. At that point, you either see their presence status or simply get “Presence unknown.”
