I use Lync with Outlook 2013 in an AD/Exchange environment. While Lync's status changes depending on my free/busy availability in Outlook, I was looking for something more granular.

Specifically, I would like to be able to tag meetings with some categories which would force a "Do Not Disturb" status in Lync (instead of the out-of-the-box "Busy").

This is not configurable in neither Outlook nor Lync as far as I can tell but maybe someone knows a utility, or script, which could do that (I could try to write something but I have no experience in Windows scripting)

Thank you!
