Join as a guest in Lync Web App automatically RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to allow an anonymous user to join a conference via hyperlink and the Lync Web App chooses automatically the anonymous user option with a specified name defined in the query string.

    Is it possible?

  • The closest you can come is via appending ?sl=1 to the end of the meeting uri (How to force the use of the Lync Web App? Just append this to the url - ?sl=1).  The user will get presented with LWA and either be asked to user their organization credentials (when Lync Client is installed) or to login as a guest.  It is still possible to login as a guest when Lync Client is installed with the user, it just involves choosing to join as a guest on the LWA screen.  I do not believe it currently has the ability to force their display name.

    If you were to build a UCWA application you could have a chosen display name for the user joining the conference (anonymously), but it is a bit large endeavor than launching LWA.
