Lync Chat Rooms

Using the Lync instant messenger client, you can now create and participate in persistent chat rooms.

Lync Chat Room

Chat rooms can be made available to the entire KUMC campus community or to a specific, invite-only group. A department or project team, for example, may have a chat room for group collaboration in real time.

How to Create
Contact Customer Support at 913-588-7995 to create the initial room. Once it's up and running, you can assign permissions to who can view it. When contacting Customer Support, provide the following information:

  • Name for the chat room
  • Description of the room
  • Whether or not it should be open (available to anyone), closed (findable but only members can read posts), or secret (only members can find and post)
  • Name of the manager of the chat room who can assign memberships
