2 Change your presence status Open Lync and, in the main window, click the availability menu under your name, and then select a different status, such as Be Right Back. The following table describes the presence status that other people see for you and what the status means.

If you have blocked individuals from seeing your presence, you ll appear offline to them. Your presence is not known.

Set your location In the Lync main window, under your presence status, Lync displays a location that is related to the network that you re connected to. You can make this location more meaningful by renaming it Work or Home. Then, every time that you re working from this location, any contacts you want to share this information with will have a better idea of where you are.
