A user who can manage a chat room is called a chat room manager. Chat room managers can set membership and manage settings of their chat rooms.

To set who can manage a specific chat room

  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft Lync Server 2010, and then click Microsoft Lync Server 2010, Group Chat Admin Tool.

  2. In the Chat Rooms list, click the chat room.

  3. Click the Chat Room Managers tab.

  4. Click Add, and then do the following:

    • In the Search For box, type a name or part of a name to search for, and then click Search. To limit your search to only exact matches for your search criteria, enclose the search criteria in quotation marks.

      Because the membership of a chat room or category must be a subset of its scope, only names in the scope are returned.

    • In the list of names that match your query, click one or more names, and then click Add.

    • When you are finished adding names from the list, click Close.

  5. (Optional) To remove a user or group from the managers list, on the Chat Room Managers tab, click the name in the list, and then click Remove.

    A name in the managers list that appears dimmed is inherited from the parent category and cannot be removed here. It can be removed only at the category level where it was added.
  6. When you are finished making changes to the membership list, click Apply.
