Case Scenario VI. Have your meeting at home
Business meetings are a huge component for work. Flying out to only attend a two hour meeting and flying right back home after a meeting can be tiring, time consuming, and costly. Microsoft Lync 2010 removes all the difficulties of needing to travel to meeting. You are even able to attend meetings in the comfort of your own home. The following steps will provide you information on how to request an Online meeting as well as sharing contents for your meeting.
