User Interface Improvements

Just a couple of ideas to improve the user experience. Many of these features are already in Live Messenger. 1. Cut and paste embedded images. If I want to send a quick screenshot to somebody its a pain to have to save the screenshot to a file and then send it. 2. Add in nudge. Good way to get somebody's attention. 3. It was a good idea to have Lync save IM hustory in Outlook but our company is afraid of this data ...more »

Change the system tray icon back!

With the recent security updates, the system tray icon changed to the Lync logo, and is no longer a representation of your presence. I liked it the old way!

Option to keep active voice call window 'Always on Top'

If you right-click on a lync window there is an option to keep the window 'Always on Top' of other windows. I'd like to see that be an option to set so that all active calls default to this window behavior. This should reduce hang up delays when using a PC for Lync calls where there are several windows open and you are forced to search for the active lync voice conversation to close it.

Add file transfer to Persistent Chat

The server side supports it, since using the Lync 2010 Group Chat allows users to send files through Lync 2013. It's about time the Lync 2013 client provided this functionality as well.

Lync Online Meeting Video Stream

Lync should have something like the Live Meeting functionality to upload a video and stream it. Right now there is a workaroun using a webcam application called ManyCam (http://voipnorm.blogspot.mx/2011/03/streaming-video-content-or-using-two.html).

Lync user Photo

Lync 2013 ties the user photo to Exchange 2013. Fine and dandy. But what about those who don't have 2013? AD photos only? How about bringing back the public URL option from R2/2010? I have now had 3 of 3 last project ask for this.

MUTE in Taskbar

I would like to have it show whether or not the call is muted graphically in the taskbar. Perhaps by putting a mute icon over the Lync incon.

 

Another good thingmight be to have an occasional audible beep to remind you that you have the call on MUTE.

Lync function windows

The Lync client should be redesigned to organize or automatically "snap" the user's call(s) and/or conference windows to the main window of the Lync client. This way the user will not have several "call" windows in the taskbar and desktop.

This will allow for easier organization of calls in a busy environment where the user has multiple applications running.
