Figure 1: Manager (User20) delegating access to User21
Figure 2: User21 creating a new meeting for Administrator
Figure 3: User21 trying to add Lync meeting options as User20
1. Set-CsClientPolicy <policy_name> –EnableExchangeDelegateSync $True
Figure 4: User21 added as delegate for User20
Figure 5: User21 can now successfully create a Lync meeting for User20
1. In order for delegates to get synced from Outlook\Exchange to Lync the Outlook client must be open on the delegator's machine. The reason for this is because delegation uses MAPI only and not EWS (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg398806(v=ocs.14).aspx).
2. The "You were added as a delegate for User20" banner notification will be displayed each time you login to each computer until you click the X to dismiss the notification. The notification gets written to the registry keys below (Figure 6). Once you click the X to dismiss the notification User20 will be removed from the "Outstanding DelegatorList" key and added to "Dismissed DelegatorList" so the banner is no longer displayed on this computer for that specific user.
a. Location - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Lync\firstname.lastname@example.org
b. Last DelegatorList – current list of delegators.
c. Outstanding DelegatorList – display the banner for users listed under this key
d. Dismissed DelegatorList – Once User21 clicks the X next to the banner that sip uri will get moved under this key so it doesn’t display that message again on this computer.
