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 🙂

Does not work for Lync 2013. There you need
Reg Add “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Lync” /V “EnableAppearOffline” /D 1 /T REG_DWORD /F
i dont get the option HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Communicator
but i am able to navigate till HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft and after that i dont find Lync nor Communicator but in our environment i have Lync 2013 client installed
can u help me pls… 🙂
Firstly, my thanks to the writer of this piece. It helps – for me it needs a little tweaking though. I have same issue as coolboy. Tried the solution given by Alginald but did not work for me. As a workaround, I CREATED the missing sub-keys which in this case are ….\Office\15.0\Lync then add the dword. Restart Lync and there it is ! 🙂
it works fine.
Can you please provide the full path where i need to create the above mentioned folders.
See above comment, if that resolves your issue.
it works, Thanks for the tweaking tips mr Sardin
No luck here. Tried this, it lets me add the key, but no change
Check the Lync version if its 2013, see above comments for correct reg path.
Thanks for the tweaking tips Sardin. It works fine.
