I see that Lync Online now has a meeting capacity of 1000, versus its original capacity of 250. Are there any features lost when you host a meeting over 250 attendees e.g. you must use a third party conferencing provider versus Lync audio, cannot upload Power Points or desktop share in meetings that large? Just having a hard time finding out whether a meeting of that size results in limited feature sets (already aware that it's not designed to scale that high and could be cumbersome to manage).
Thanks for the feedback.
Where did you see the Lync online meeting capacity upgrade information?
I haven’t received any information about this upgrade. In the Microsoft Lync Online for Enterprises Service Description.docx which is updated on March 22, 2012, I find that the maximum meeting attendee capacity is 250. The Service Description can be downloaded from the site http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=13602.
I have confirmed the upgrade information with Lync product team. Currently, the Lync online meeting capacity is still 250. I suggest you watch out our Office 365 Community forum for updates about this issue.
Here is just one example of where I saw the capacity was increased to 1000. news.softpedia.com/.../Lync-Online-Conference-Maximum-Number-of-Participants-Increased-to-1-000-234550.shtml
I see in the service description that the capacity is still listed as 250, so I'll work off that until I hear something more official about a cap 1000 limit for Lync Online and Lync Server 2010.
Do you have any other questions about this issue?
No you addressed my inquiry. Thank you very much!
