Use the Lync - Options dialog box to customize some of the alerts that Microsoft Lync 2010 communications software displays when issues arise.
From the Lync main window, you can open the Alerts options in one of two ways:
By default, when someone adds you as a contact, you’ll receive an alert asking your approval. You can then add the contact to your Contacts list and assign a privacy relationship. If you prefer, you can choose to automatically approve such invite notifications. With this setting, the contact automatically is assigned the Colleagues relationship.
If you are very busy, setting your status as Do Not Disturb is handy for reducing the number of interruptions you get. But you might still want to keep in touch with important contacts. You can make exceptions for contacts to whom you have assigned the Workgroup relationship (typically your closest co-workers).
Open Alerts options, and do one of the following:
Note If you have set your status to Do Not Disturb and you make a 911 call, your status automatically changes to Available. You can reset it at any time.
