In our continuing effort to improve the Mavention apps we released new versions of the Mavention Anniversaries and the Mavention Birthdays. In this new version there is support for the Lync presence information. This way users can directly interact with the Lync client to congratulate users on their anniversaries or birthday. By providing the Lync status it becomes easier to reach out to the peers that have something to celebrate and congratulate them even though you might not be in the same physical location.
If you already have a version of the Mavention Anniversaries or the Mavention Birthdays installed, all you need to do is update the app or apps. You can find a short description on updating an app on MSDN How to: Update apps for SharePoint. If you install a new version you still need to configure it as described in the app or in this previous blog: Mavention Anniversaries available in the Office Store or the Mavention Birthdays available in the Office Store
Tip: Use the Mavention Profile Completeness to encourage users to keep their profile up-to-date, and show your users the latest birthday or anniversaries information.
