Today I am sharing a TIP on how to show Appear Offline Status on Lync Client:
On the machine where Lync Client is installed, open registry editor
1. Run Regedt32
2. Go to Path “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Communicator”
3. Create a Dword EnableAppearOffline
4. Set the Decimal Value to 1.
Now When you can relaunch Lync & you will see the Appear Offline status in status list 🙂
