Is there a tool for Lync that will allow us to give managers access to just their direct reports' conversations?

Is there a tool for Lync that will allow us to give managers access to just their direct reports' conversations?  Let's say a manager suspects that one of his employees is talking about confidential data in Lync and wants a report of all conversations.  We can give access to the Conversation History folder in Outlook, however, the user has the rights to delete those.  We have a reporting tool that can do everything, but it can't filter the search for only the users that this manager should have permission for.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Are you running Archiving server by any chance, to archive IM conversations ?
usmmsupportAuthor Commented:
Yes we are, however the best we can find is to setup Reports in sql reporting services, but there is no security of any kind so we can't give access to anyone without giving them access to everything.
Mkris9Commented:
hmmm... in terms of security, they'll have to have read permissions and they'll be able to read everyone's archived messages. There are no other security settings. Normally who ever requires access to archived conversations, will have to ask IT and they extract and give them the info.

But if an MD wants to do it themselves, then unfortunately that is the only way. You can install OCSS Archive viewer on MD's workstation so that  he can view it. But take his permission out (if you are allowed to, that is :) ) once done.
