MS LynC Questions

Hi,

I am hoping you can please help answer these questions

•      Is there a way to schedule a lync meeting if a user does not have outlook?  
•      Does the lync web scheduler only work with office365?

•      Is there a way to create permission groups within a single lync so only some users can contact each other?  Like an extranet model or how twitter works.

•      Can an action in a lync session drive a workflow?  For example, to generate an invoice based on a session?

•      We would like to pull information about a lync session and use it to generate a business report.  For example, determine costs saved by users in 3 different countries not flying to see each other.  Can this be done?

•      Is there a way to have an “opt in” checkpoint for participants to be able to record a session (everyone must agree)?

•      Can we get lync recording to automatically publish to a common share?

•      What is the best architecture if we want to have external users using our lync system?

•      Could rules for a meeting be shown, permanently available for participants?

•      Could rules for a meeting be shown where participants need to agree with them for the meeting to start?

•      What have you seen from a performance perspective with Lync office 365 vs. on-premise?

•      What are the advantages of going to the Lync enterprise model? High Availability, Failover, Load balancing,

•      What is the best architecture if we want to have external users using our lync system?

Some of these questions are very generic, so I addressed the ones which can at least be answered with such little context.

•      Is there a way to schedule a lync meeting if a user does not have outlook?  
Lync 2013 integrated with Exchange 2013 CU2 provides the Online Meeting option in Outlook Web Access.

•      Does the lync web scheduler only work with office365?
No, the Lync Web Scheduler can be deployed on-premises as well: http://masteringlync.com/2012/12/13/understanding-the-lync-web-scheduler

•      Is there a way to create permission groups within a single lync so only some users can contact each other?  Like an extranet model or how twitter works.
No, Only blocking users provides this.

•      Is there a way to have an “opt in” checkpoint for participants to be able to record a session (everyone must agree)?
Not aware of one.

•      Can we get lync recording to automatically publish to a common share?
Not without third party tools (e.g. Polycom Media Manager solution)

•      What is the best architecture if we want to have external users using our lync system?
There is no 'best' as it depends on the network configuration.  In short whatever design matches the Lync requirements is best.

•      What are the advantages of going to the Lync enterprise model? High Availability, Failover, Load balancing,
All of the above.  A Single standard Edition server is best in non-production deployments.
