Ability to select who you can hear during a Conference Call

When in a Skype conference call and a colleague who sits next to, or close to me is talking, I can hear them twice like an echo. I can hear them speaking in the room but also delayed on my headset, due to latency issues, a second or so later. It is extremely off-putting and difficult to hear what they are saying. Often the only solution is for us to move desks so we are further away and can't hear each other, or to book ...more »

Ability to move dial-in access numbers to another pool

Right now, you cannot change which pool a dial-in access number is assigned to. That association can only be set when the number is added. During migrations, you often need to move numbers to a new pool from a legacy pool. This entails deleting the number, then adding it back in, changing only the assign pool. It would be nice if you could edit it in CP and set a new pool association.

Allow changing of devices while in lobby

Right now, if you attempt to join a meeting and get placed in the lobby, you can't adjust/change devices. It would be nice if you could change devices before entering the meeting, while in the lobby.

Intersite Frontend Server Multiplexing of Media Streams

When a conference is established, the conference is hosted within the frontend pool the meeting organizer is hosted on. This is the case even if there are multiple locations, each with their own frontend pool. In the example where a meeting is established between an organizer in site A who is homed on the Site A frontend pool and 100 participants in Site B who are homed on the Site B frontend pool, separate media streams ...more »

Recordings should use Meeting title for naming, not participants

Right now, when you record a call, the recording title is the name of the recipients. I find this fairly useless. It would make more sense to use the title of the meeting/call, instead. Or have it be an option to switch between them.

Remove forced verbose mode for Set-CsPinSendCAWelcomeMail

When you use the cmdlet, it spews a fair amount of verbose info to the screen, even when -verbose is not used. This is not expected behavior. It should only be displayed when -verbose is used. This is problematic for those who use this programmatically.

Policy option to disable "Lock the video spotlight"

Right now, if one presenter locks the video spotlight, it becomes the view for all attendees. This should either be an individual setting, or something that can be disabled either by policy or meeting options from the organizer.

Lync Web Conference - Call me at

Its a pity that when I click Join Lync Meeting and then choose to join the meeting audio via a DDI of my choosing that the video is then disabled.

Would be handy if I still had the option to have video without the workaround of joining without audio and then inviting my DDI.

Improve non-federated client meeting behavior

We've been seeing an increase in the number of Lync folks that have native Lync clients connected to a non-open environment. Largely these appear to be US government folks. When we attempt to invite them to a meeting, their native client takes priority and attempts to connect but fails due to their non federated environment or firewall. We then have them back track and open up the web client. While this is a workaround ...more »

Access to dial-in conferencing numbers

I wish there was a msRTCSIP-GroupingID function for the dial-in conferencing numbers. Same way as it is possible to group users together in the address book with grouping id, it should be possible to block/allow access to dial-in conferencing numbers. This relates to the Lync On-Premise version. In one environment I work with there is 35 dial-in conferencing numbers, in different countries. It is fine that they are all ...more »

Add "Anonymous callers bypass lobby" option to meeting config

Right now, there is only an option for "PSTN callers bypass lobby", but no similar option for anonymous. It would be nice if this was possible.

 

Note that this option is already available via the user's client settings, but not in the server policy.

Customisable dial-in conferencing IDs

Lync currently allocates me a random dial-in conferencing ID. Sometimes I'll get a 'friendly' number, and other times it'll be one devoid of nice numeric sequences or patterns. I'd like the Administrator (or maybe even the user!) to be able to specify their preferred dial-in conference ID, perhaps when the user goes to the dialin page, or otherwise via PowerShell. Lync should quarantine IDs that have been used before, ...more »
