We have just installed Lync 2013 on all of our computers at work.  We have computers in certain locations that all use the same login name.  Is there a way that I can have Lync up and running on all of these computers with the same login name?  Example: All of the computers in our Adoption Lobby login in as "Adoptions".  If someone sends an IM to Adoptions can all 5 computers receive the IM?  If not, is there a way to setup a distribution list like in Outlook that would allow the same thing to occur?   I am actually more interested in knowing if Lync can use the same login name on multiple computers at once.  That way I don't have to assign new login names to every computer.

Thank you
