    Lync for a helpdesk

    Got the phone setup all done, but is there a way to setup a single IM identity that would go to more than one person?

    If its like any other phone system can you not setup a ring group? i.e ring 300 and it rings phones 301, 302, 303 etc?

    Lync doesn't support IM to response groups AFAIK without 3rd party software.

    These guys have a good piece of software for call centers. :-) might be a bit too much for what you want but I understand it is reasonably priced.

    Mobility and Contact Center Solutions for Microsoft Lync Server 2010 by AltiGen Communications, Inc.

    The phones they have are also very cool!!

    Regards,
    James.

    One thing you might want to keep in mind is that if you intend on using Lync for desktop sharing (to remotely fix issues) you have to get the user to click on any UAC prompts (unless you turn off UAC compleatly).
