This article describes an update that is available for Microsoft Lync Server 2010 to remove the LastActive attribute from the aggregation state category.
Lync Server 2010 always calculates the Last Active time stamp during presence aggregation for each user and stores it in a database. Last Active presence information is retrieved to satisfy individual presence inquiries and subscriptions by other users. This occurs according to the access level that the users were assigned. The design of the Last Active presence information has changed for the following reasons:
- Last Active presence information may be incorrectly interpreted as reflecting the actual user’s status at work. Therefore, users may rely on it to remotely monitor an employee’s activity. However, this behavior is not allowed in some countries.
- Last Active presence information that is provided to users should not disclose how long a user is away or offline for business reasons.
