"Currently sharing" bar pinning

In O365 package, the Skype client auto hides the "Currently presenting" bar. So, many a times, after a Skype call ends and the chat window is not closed, the screen sharing continues to run without the presenter being aware of this. this is a security risk. The thin yellow border around the edges of the screen does not seem to be very distinct. in older versions of client, this bar used to be pinned by default whereas ...more »

Announce participant entry and exit

When you "Invite More People" to an existing Lync discussion, it would be nice to have something in the chat window like "[someone] entered the discussion" or "[someone] exited the discussion".

Pin Contacts to taskbar

Often times Lync window is slow to open on my computer and not optimized for quickly launching IM's. With the functionality of PINNING items to the windows taskbar along with pinning activities/files/info to specific programs on the taskbar, it would be very useful if I could pin contacts from my Lync Contacts to the windows taskbar. Or, alternatively, have the contacts in my Favorites folder in lync be pinned to the ...more »

call logs shows end time of call instead of start time

unlike all other telephony systems including mobile phones where, in the call logs the start time of the call is displayed , however in SFB client the end time is displayed in call logs making it useless to the user to know when the call was actually made.

LinkedIn profile link in Lync/Skype4B app/client

The Lync/Skype4B client and mobile app should have an option to update our linkedin profile link in our Lync/Skype4B profile as an optional feature. That will actually help the work groups and peers to stay connected more efficiently in a professional manner and able to know each other more closely.

Option change request

At the moment, you have to option to automatically start Lync when I log into Windows, which also includes to automatically log me into Lync as well. I suggest that these 2 options be separated, so I can choose to auto run Lync when I log into Windows, without auto sign-in to Lync. Thanks.

In-your-face Pop-up Alert

Add the Alert Option to "Minimize new messages I receive". Default this to be check marked. When not check marked, a window will pop-up with a new message received.

 

This is useful when someone sends you a message while you're away from your computer, because it's not obvious otherwise.

Options to Mute

There are a lot of times, participants login to conference cal,l but do not mute or forget to mute their phone. This leads to unnecessary voice distortion.

 

Please empower "Meeting Anchor" with ability to view which user has mute / un-mute their phone. Also he should be able to "mute" a participants line as required.

 

Regards,

Define custom image / photo for contact

Currently Lync/O365 allows a user to choose their photo and everyone sees that image. Some users don't have photos, some have obscure photos or random images. Given the status bar showing who's in a conversation shows only people's images (when in its minimal form / saving screen real estate) it's hard to tell who's in the conversation. Being allowed to define an image for your contacts which overrides their image should ...more »

Prevent Lync Window Auto-Resizing

When having a group conversation, if a new participant joins or you change the participant view, the window resizes. The same sometimes happens if pasting an image into chat. Presumably this is to accommodate the extra content's size; however it's annoying as generally you place a window where you want it / don't expect it to change. Having this auto-resize as a user preference rather than mandatory feature would allow ...more »
