Adding custom text to instant messages in Lync Server 2013


Topic Last Modified: 2013-02-20

Add a disclaimer or warning to the beginning of every Lync 2013 instant messaging (IM) conversation by using the New-CSClientPolicy or Set-CSClientPolicy Lync Server Management Shell cmdlets with the IMWarning parameter.

The command in the following example adds a security reminder at the top of the Conversation window whenever a new IM conversation begins:

New-CsClientPolicy -Identity IMSecurityNotice -IMWarning 
"Remember, security is everyone's responsibility. Keep it confidential."

Use Grant-CSClientPolicy to assign this new policy to users. For details, see New-CSClientPolicy and Grant-CSClientPolicy in the Lync Server Management Shell documentation.
