Lync Environment Report Update

One of the most requested features for the Lync Environment Report package has always been support for custom Word document templates. I wrote the capability to support it sometime early last year but never got around to making it available publicly. Pat Richard from ehloworld.com asked me about it today, so I packaged it up and now it’s here.

I’ve added a -Template option to the New-LyncEnvReport.ps1 script that accepts the path to a Word document to be used as a template. You will need to open the script and tweak a couple things to make it work with your template though. There is a new section near the top of the script where you can configure the style names for the Section headers and table styles you want to use.

The other big change I made was to remove the auto download option for the Visio stencils from Microsoft’s website. It was still configured to look for the older version which is no longer available. I have updated the script to check the “My Documents\My Shapes” folder for the 2012_Stencil_121412.vss file which is available for download here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35772
