* Adding a Custom Help or Support Link
* Adding a Custom Legal Disclaimer Text
* Adding a Custom footer text Customizations are made within the Meeting Configuration settings and can be scoped on a Global, Site, or Pool level. In my example, I will be adjusting the Global configuration of the Meeting Configuration. To access the settings in the Control Panel, navigate to the Conferencing node –> Meeting Configuration tab: [Lync 2013 – Cust Invite – Control Panel] Edit the Global configuration. Here you will find four corresponding fields to configured the customizations. [Lync 2013 – Cust Invite – Meeting Config – markup] Here you will need to add URLs that will be accessible by users who will receive the meeting invite and are expected to see the customizations. So if you want external users to be able to view the customizations, these URLs need to be externally available without authentication. For my example in my lab, my URLs will be internal URLs. [Lync 2013 – Cust Invite – Meeting Config – Custom – markup] Now when we initiate a new Lync Online Meeting invite, we will see the new components: [Lync 2013 – Cust Invite – Custom invite – markup] A few things to note. The custom Help URL will just replace the default Help URL. When clicking the link, it opens my customized help web page: [Lync 2013 – Cust Invite – Custom Help] When clicking the Legal link, it opens my customized disclaimer web page: [Lync 2013 – Cust Invite – Custom Disclaimer] If you are a powershell type admin, you can do the exact same configuration using the New-(Set-)CsMeetingConfiguration: [Lync 2013 – Cust Invite – powershell] This new functionality to easily customize the Online Meeting invitations is a welcomed addition to Lync 2013.
