  •     on number 3 I noticed that Avaya adds a phone icon to the right of the more (...) icon with their own branded drop down. This is the UI button  that are presented when the user selects a contact. The standard Lync call button is removed and a custom button is added to the far right of the window past the (..) more button.

        Based on the above description What API's do I need to use to add my own custom call button or

    intercept the converstion ( which I can do with the Lync Sdk)  and cancel the audio call through Lync and make the audio call via our pbx ip server.

  • Avaya is not using anything that is included in the Lync SDK.

    I believe they are using something like injecting code into the Lync process.

  • Is Avaya really selling a commercialized integration based on UI code hacks?
