Hi all,
I am pleased to announce a new version of CallViaPhoneAdvanced 2013 . As already mentioned in my previous posts,  CallViaPhone application,  through Lync interface, can be used to make and handle calls (similar to Better Together features of snom and polycom) to your phone (make call, close, hold, transfer, conference) , for more details please refer to this post CallViaPhone post detailed description .

Auto Answer Video Kiosk application for Lync 2010/ 2013

Hi all,

about 1 year ago Scott Hanselman  wrote an awesome lync tool named Lync 2010 Super Simple Auto Answer Video Kiosk with Full Screen, you can find a complete description  here :

Full Description of Super Simple Auto Answer Video Kiosk with FullScreen

Basically this tool let you to turn any PC in a complete “auto remote working machine” just calling it from Lync .

This can be very useful in any situations in which we have to connect, without human intervention, in that PC . For example it can be used to see, with video, what’s happening in that place, or simply when you want to show Lync feature during sales presentations.

Usage is very simple, just start Lync 2010 or Lync 2013 ,(binaries version below is with NotUISuppressed, this mean that you have to start Lync client before launching AutoAnswer) , go to SuperSimpleLyncKiosk.exe.config  file and insert your sip uri  like this :

<setting name=”sipEmailAddress” serializeAs=”String”>
                <value>sip:yoursip@yourdomain</value>
</setting>

and Save.

Ready to work , just open SuperSimpleLyncKiosk.exe and enjoy 🙂

Just a couple of months ago , i saw that there’s not a direct download to binaries , for this reason I contact Scott asking him the permission to publish  binaries , thanks Scott!! 🙂

So for who that doesn’t have a way to compile a Visual Studio project , here below you can find the executable :

Personally i learn a lot seeing code of this tool, and for this i thanks another time Scott for his job.

Obviously all credit goes to Scott 🙂
