Auto populate Lync 2013 contact lists

I have recently installed Lync 2013 server on the network and added all the users.

Does anyone know a way to automatically populate the contacts list rather than manually adding everyone to each user?

lync should look at exchange for the users in the domain

The lync client design treats the contact list like a person's "speed dial" list. It isn't meant to list everyone (the outlook integration and search box are for that) but is instead meant to be customizable by each user. Even in a co pant, who I choose to have on speed dial is not going to be the same as who you choose to have.

In short, there is no official way to pre-populate the contact list. Unofficially you could use so,etching like this script to do so though. This won't KEEP contacts up to date, but for a new deployment, it could give you a head start. I personally think users will learn more about lync and get comfortable with the system up faster if they do it themselves...but this is an alternative.
