Most of the Lync Control Panel drop down boxes are in the order that they were added to the topology. Make them atleast Alphabetical. Deployments with over 200+ Branches make things hard to find ;-)
Conferencing policies have an option for "Allow federated and anonymous participants to take control". This should be separated into two different check boxes. One for federated, and one for anonymous.
Extensibility would allow 3rd parties to write extensions for LSCP, thus streamlining administration.
When adding a new user with EV through the Lync Control Panel or through powershell, you must add
"tel:" in front of the (required) telephone number. Since this requirement is there 100% of time lync should just go ahead and add "tel:" on its own.
I have only one SIP domain in my deployment, yet when I go to enable a new user in the Control Panel, the SIP domain fields under "Generate user's SIP URI" are all blank. I need to click the pull-down and select from the only option there is. Lync has a "Default" SIP domain. The CSCP should populate the SIP domain fields on the form with this value automatically.

Right now, in environments that have multiple pools, you're prompted with a pick list of which pool you want to connect to. It would be nice if you could set a default pool. Then, in the Control Panel itself, provide an option to change pools.
If you create a custom simple URL, say, for the web scheduler (https://scheduler.contoso.com), it shows in the Control Panel simply as "https://..." and isn't listed anywhere in Topology Builder.
It would be nice to have an HTML5 web based control panel for lync server, instead of the silverlight based one , since after experiencing the Exchange 2013 ECP seems there's a considerable performance differences, between both control panels, especially in term of speed
All of the other policies are shown, but not the UserServices policy (which controls UCS). Would be nice to have that included.
The Silverlight LCP is awful, I think could be a good idea to switch to a GUI interface like the Exchange 2013 Control Panel.
This graphic uniformity can also give to customer a better idea of integration between Lync and Exchange
We have deployed Lync across the company and we want to use it for HelpDesk to shadow users. It would be great for a way to 'take control' of the user's PC without the end user having to initiate it (ie. HelpDesk should initiate the control request and the end user would just see an 'accept/decline' popup)??
Curretnly the user has to offer the helpdesk technician control...
