How do I add a contact in Lync 2013?

OSU Access Wireless portal has returned

The login page for the OSU Access wireless network has returned. Information about that can be found here.

OSU Access is an unsecured/unencrypted wireless network. OSU IT staff recommend you use the Eduroam or OSU Secure wireless networks.

You can easily create meetings with other OSU employees who have Exchange? accounts. There are too many such persons to load all of them into your contacts list, but you can add any of these people to your contacts. The following steps are illustrated with Lync 2013 for Windows, but the process is similar for Lync 2011 for Mac.

  1. Open Lync and type the name, email, or phone number of the person whom you want to add.contact search box
  2. When the contact appears, click on More Options on the far right of the contact block.Contact more options
  3. You may now add this contact to a specific contact list or to your favorites.Add to list or favorites


NOTE: You may add a non-OSU contact, click on the small person with a plus icon then click on the “Add a Contact Not in My Organization” button, and select the messaging client they have. From there you can follow the instructions to add a contact.
