I would like to see Lync 2013 updated to have the ability to work properly in an environment that has both Exchange 2007 and 2013 running in a coexistence scenario. Currently if pointed to Exch 2013 but your mailbox is not migrated yet, Exch 2013 does a fine job at being a proxy and not causing an outage to the end user. However Lync constantly prompts with "Exchange needs your credentials". No matter what you enter ...more »
Ever since I can remember, I never understood why Lync can not just use the same contacts in outlook, why do we need a second list with exactly the same information ?

It could create the meeting space, log you into the Lync Online meeting in your browser and send an invite to your Lync contact to join the meeting.

This graphic uniformity can also give to customer a better idea of integration between Lync and Exchange
Change the PIN system to be a REAL single PIN, shared between Lync and Exchange, like the Active Directory Account Password
One of the challenges with Exchange UM Auto Attendants is that you cannot have both accept "Key Mapping" and "Dial Extension Number" using the same time Auto Attendant. Would be nice if this functionality could be add to AA's.
Here is a more indepth explanation of the challenge and a work around:
In fact it is not directly a Lync feature, but more an Exchange function.
It should be possible for users to upload personalized voicemail greetings for example as a wav- or mp3-file. This would enable the use of professionally produced greetings.
