Trial Questions

The trial version of HR Auditor makes all product features available. You will be able to search your entire Lync archive. However only the first 10 lines of a chat are visible or exportable in the trial product.

HR Auditor can be installed on Microsoft Server 2008 R2 with IIS 7.5 and/or Server 2012 with IIS 8.0 that have .Net 4.0 Framework installed. HR Auditor must be installed on a different server than the Lync® server.

HR Auditor requires that archiving must be done using Lync® Server Archiving databases. Lync installs that are archiving using Microsoft Exchange integration are currently not supported by HR Auditor.

HR Auditor requires an account that has read access to the LCSLogs database. This account can either use Windows Authentication, or SQL Authentication.

HR Auditor also needs access to Active Directory to reconcile SIP URI to Active Directory user names.

The HR Auditor support team is here to help with any installation issues during your evaluation process. You can reach us at:
HR Auditor supports on premise installs of Lync 2010® and Lync 2013® that are archiving using Lync® Server Archiving databases. Lync® installs that are archiving using Microsoft Exchange integration are currently not supported by HR Auditor.
Lync® Online is supported in a single-tenant environment only.
HR Auditor MSRP pricing starts at $1872 for 5 viewers with 1 Lync® server. Pricing scales based on total number of enterprise IM users, total number of Lync® servers and viewers required.
A viewer is a user that is authorized to search the Lync® archive. Most companies do not need more than 5 viewers in an organization unless they want to use manager mode enabling functional managers the ability to search their department if needed.
