Event Zero has developed a number of tools that complement other products. Most of these tools are available from this web site or from your customer resource center account. Refer to the instructions for each product to find out where to download it from.
Twitter to Lync IM bridge
Twync is a Twitter to Federated Lync IM bridge or in simple terms, Twync is a tool that enables Lync users to receive "Tweets" from Twitter in their IM client. Twync is currently a one-way bridge that allows traffic in the form of tweets from Twitter to flow into a Lync IM client, it's very simple to use and requires no software to be installed (client or server) provided your Lync environment has either open federation or is federated with Event Zero.
Twync is provided by Event Zero to all Lync users as a free service. Feel free to share this page with your friends and colleagues.
Remotely test your Lync federation
Federation is one of the key aspects to Microsoft’s Lync Server products, it enables users to connect to organisations outside of their own, using the internet, rather than breaking out over PSTN or ISDN lines to make calls. Lync federation allows for end to end user communications using IM, Voice, Video and Conferencing.
Setting up Lync federation is reasonably simple once an Edge Server is installed – for information on setting up Lync federation in your organisation, please refer to the Microsoft documentation.
Once you have Lync federation setup you can use the Event Zero Federation Tester to check if your federation is working correctly. Just click the “Test Now” tab above and follow the instructions. The Event Zero Lync Federation Tester can help you test both incoming and outgoing federation in both Voice and IM modalities.
Lync Federation Tester is a free tool provided by Event Zero. Feel free to use it as many times and as often as you like. Please also take the time to check out our other Lync Apps.
Scheduled Lync calls
Have you ever been in a situation where you wish something or someone would interrupt you so you can get on with more important work? Wish no more: Big Boss is the answer!
Big Boss can call your Lync Federated phone and play a message when you want. Simply type in your federated address, select the call type and click call – in seconds your phone will ring and you have an instant excuse to do something else.
It's also a free tool, so use it as often as you like.
Search outlook for federated contacts
The Outlook Contact Federation Finder is a new tool from Event Zero that scans your Microsoft Outlook e-mails for e-mail addresses that you use and then uses Microsoft Lync to check if any of those users can be contacted with Lync Federation (eg IM and Voice) and if so, adds those e-mail addresses as contacts in your Lync client.
The tool is currently experimental, so please be careful when you use it. After the tool becomes stable, we will also release the source code so others can contribute and build on the tool.
Oh - and it's free provided you download it from the Event Zero web site.
