Some people love it, some hate it, but a fairly common request is for new IM’s to be automatically popped open. By default in Lync they just stay at the bottom of the screen.
SuperToast by Modality Systems
Modality Systems has released an elegant tool that solves the popup issue while at the same time maintaining Lync’s MPOP (multiple points of presence) feature. You can get this free addon by email email@example.com.

LyncPopper by Technet User
Another solution: Technet user, Jumper4000, has created a small Lync enhancement that merely pops open Lync messages. A challenge with this method is it breaks MPOP and takes the focus away from what you are doing on your PC. But it’s an option.
Warning: This is a very new app. So be aware you are testing a beta.
Some users have been noting Norton/Symantec detects this as a virus.
