Finally, you can disable a room, which locks members out of the room.
This table lists the action and what you can and can’t do as a room manager.
In addition to creating your own persistent chat rooms, you can change their privacy levels, assign additional room managers responsibilities, and add or remove members.
Important: The Lync administrator can lock most settings of a given room category, which prevents you and other chat room managers from making changes to the settings.
Your administrator can also limit the pool of users from which you and other chat room managers can select members.
If several room categories are available to you as a room manager, those categories are listed on the Create a room window.
Select the category whose settings and membership pool you want to use.
A Lync chat room “category” is a collection of room characteristics that can be applied to several rooms for convenience.
For example, a real estate firm might find it useful to set up a category of rooms specifically for the use of the sales team, another category for the legal department, another for the executive team, and so on.
If you decide to change the room name later, the new name will be displayed for you and the room’s members and followers going forward.
It’s a good idea, although, to find an appropriate name to start with and then stick with it.
(As explained below, managers must appear in the pool of potential members for the room category that your room belongs to.) To add a room manager, open the chat room window and, in the Managers field, type the name of anyone you want to assign as a co-manager.
Like you, these managers can add room members and edit some room settings.
As the room manager, you can control who can join the closed or secret rooms you create.
