Using Lync, how do I send a file?

Use Microsoft Lync to access Indiana University's UniCom service.

Note:
For Mac users, UITS recommends Lync for Mac to connect to UniCom at Indiana University. Communicator for Mac and Messenger for Mac are not supported.

In both the Windows and Mac versions of the Lync UniCom client, you can send many types of files to individuals in a conversation. You can also share files with groups in an online meeting. For instructions, see:

For limitations on file types, see At IU, what types of files cannot be transferred through UniCom?

To learn how to perform common tasks in the Lync client, see Learn how to use UniCom. Also, see Microsoft's Quick Start guides and How-to videos (Windows) or Lync for Mac.

For an introduction to UniCom, including how-to PDFs and videos, see UniCom.
