Smile! Your Synergy profile picture is available everywhere!

Written by Michiel Dorjee on . Posted in Exact Synergy

A lot a valuable data is stored in Synergy. Pictures of people are one of them. Using these pictures in communication tools such as MS Outlook and MS Lync offers a great user experience! With Product Update 250 we deliver Windows PowerShell scripts which allow uploading Synergy profile pictures into Active Directory. After this every known person will show the Synergy profile picture in the communication tool. So now you actually see whom you communicate with; isn’t this great!

Together with our Gold Partner Nobel we have developed these scripts and they are ready to be delivered to all of our customers. When Product Update 250 will be generally available the ‘how to’ documentation will also be provided. I will reply to this article with the link of the user guide. The provided script is for people but can also be used for contact persons which have portal access. You just need to modify the query in the script.

Until then keep smiling! You never know who is looking at your picture :-)

    Synergy profile pictures will appear in the mobile app. This is based on a thumbnails that is automatically created in Synergy database based on your profile picture in Synergy. Nothing to do with active directory
