    Hi guys,
    Our small company has an office 365 enterprise account including Lync.
    We are using Lync pretty heavily but I won't get it to work on my Z10.
    I know that we have some kind of BlackBerry Services integrated in our office 365 account but we still couldn't get it to work, so that I cannot use the Enterprise IM for Lync.
    Can you please help me with sharing experiences with Lync and BES10 or BB10 in general and how to implement it correctly?

    Thanks!

    PS: Android App for Lync isn't working either when side loaded.

    When you say you can't get it to work for the Z10, how are you trying?

    Are you sideloading the Lync 2013 app or another way?

    Neither the Lync 2010 nor the 2013 bar is working. Maybe it's because I'm not using a leak and my model is a STL-100 - I don't know.

    The BlackBerry Service integrated into our office 365 account isn't a help either.
    Actually I would like to know how to activate Lync with the Enterprise IM in general.

    To use enterprise im you need a Blackberry collaboration service server which is a part of bes10 and I doubt could integrate with office 365

    Not working as in it crashes or doesn't sign in?

    I could open it fine with my 10.2.1 leak on the Q10 - hopefully the 10.2.1 release should be out soon!

    Has anyone tried BES12 integration with Office 365, particularly for Lync? In particular, I'm interested in BES12 for a small business (mix of iOS, Android, Windows and BB10 only phones & tablets) through a hosted provider (is Rogers in Canada an option?). I would like MS Lync voice & IM to work from our devices.

    We're using Lync 2013 on leaked and non-lead versions without any issues. You just have to side load Lync on either versions. Side load Snap and than use it to load Lync. As for Blackberry collaboration service you can use IM but for Blackberry collaboration service you'll have to have hybrid environment and will require Lync server onsite. I've looked into it but not sure if our company has license for onsite Lync server. Need a way to publish Andriod Apps in Work World. Citrix is another App we need working on the Workside.

    Does joining Lync conferences work from your BlackBerry? I have sideloaded Lync 2013 on my Passport with official 10.3 and only IM function works. When I try to join scheduled conferences it ends the call immediately and never joins me into the conference. Any help will be highly appreciated!

    If you have an opportunity to test the conferencing, could you please report your findings? This is critical portion of Lync for many people and it would be great to confirm if there is an issue. Thank you for your feedback!

    I have BES 12 and use we Office 365. Email connectivity is fine but Blackberry Collaboration Service 12.1, which is required to support Enterprise IM, does not support Lync online. It only supports on-premise versions of Lync 2010 and Lync 2013 server.

    Integration with Lync Online has been requested of Blackberry in the past, but no announcements to date have been made.

    I am able to connect to Lync on my blackberry using the Lync 2013 app from the Google Play store (installed via Snap)

    We are in the same boat. Would be nice if bb collaboration would work without onsite Lync. We installed ADFS and now sideloaded Lynx stopped working altogether.

    I hope there's something in 12.2 to work with Lync online (now Skype for business ?). I am using sideloaded Lync 2013, which let's me IM.
