Set General Options on Lync 2013 for iPhone

On this page you can learn how to specify calls and meetings, contact options, and other overall settings in Lync 2013 for iPhone.

Use options to specify calls and meetings, contact options, and other overall settings. Depending on how your organization has set up Lync, some of these options might be turned off. Contact your technical support team for more information.

Calls and meetings

Phone Number

Enter your iPhone’s mobile number with country / region codes. When Lync cannot use Wi-Fi or the cellular data network to make an audio or video call, you’re called back at this number to connect you to the audio part of the Lync call.

When you first sign in to Lync for iPhone, you’ll be guided to configure your Phone Number. To update it, do the following:

  1. Tap My Info, and then tap Options.
  2. On the Options screen, under Calls and Meetings, tap Phone Number, and then enter your mobile phone number including the country / region and area code.

Require Wi-Fi for VoIP

For more information, go to Manage Wi-Fi for VoIP options.

My Credentials

By default, the My Credentials option is turned on so all your meeting and voice mail information is shown on Lync.

The Exchange setting lets you enter credentials if Exchange credentials are separate from your Lync settings. If they’re the same, keep the Use Lync Credentials switch set to ON. You need Exchange credentials to show meetings and voice mail

HTTP Proxy settings are needed if your corporate network has a proxy that requires credentials setup. You’ll need to enter this information to sign in and use the application on your corporate Wi-Fi.

Contacts─Photos

To show or hide pictures of your contacts, tap ON or OFF.

When this option is turned off, pictures aren’t downloaded or displayed.

Accessibility─TTY

Text telephone (TTY) mode is used to send text over a telephone line. A TTY device must be connected to the iPhone to interpret the modified audio. Otherwise you might experience poor audio quality. Using TTY mode in a conference call might also cause audio quality issues.

By default, TTY mode is turned off. Tap ON to turn it on.

Logging

Logs are used by system administrators to collect, analyze, and save data. A system administrator might ask you to turn on the logging options to do troubleshooting. If you’re not asked, you don’t need to be concerned with this option.

To turn on logging, do the following:

  1. Tap My Info, and then tap Options.
  2. On the Options screen, under Other, tap Logging, and then tap the slider to ON.

If you receive a sign-in error message, you can send the sign-in logs to Microsoft by selecting one of these options.

Always: Always upload sign-in log on error.

Never: Never upload sign-in logs.

Ask Me: Prompt user every time that there is a sign-in error to upload logs.

To send error logs to your technical support team, tap Send Log files, and enter your support team’s email address.
