Hide my picture N/A N/A N/A
Show my picture N/A N/A N/A

All of the picture settings appear to be stored in the database.  I’ll go hunting for those at a later time.

You can control some of this via client policy.  You can use the DisplayPhoto policy with these settings.

NoPhoto – Photos are not displayed in Lync 2013.

PhotosFromADOnly – Only photos that have been published in Active directory.

AllPhotos – Photos from AD or URL are disabled.

* 0 = Do not join audio.  1 = Lync. 2 and higher are other numbers listed. For my client 2 is work and 3 is mobile.

    Hi! I there any way to hide the message preview from notification pop-up (toast)?
    In Lync 2010 this was possible, not in 2013 the option seems gone.

    Thanks a lot!

      None that I’m aware of anymore. Maybe look at using SuperToast for this function?
