Remove steps from the Lync 2013 Client call transfer process

Lync 2013 has made it even harder than before to transfer a call. Now it takes a hover and 2 clicks before you can key the party you want to transfer the call to. If the user mistakenly clicks instead of hovering on the "handset/mike" icon, they end up accidentally muting themself - presumably at a time that they're still talking to the caller whilst trying to make this complicated transfer process appear seamless. ...more »

Change status to Off-Work based on working hours

Taken from: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/ocsclients/thread/46e78cd7-e7fa-454c-8603-55877e9ac5ed

Push IMs To All Clients

I have a mobile client, a web client and a desktop client and I regularly lose instant messages because the Lync server routes them to the last logged in client instead of all clients.

"Raise hand" feature in conferences

This would be a nice feature to help prevent people stepping on each other. Essentially click a button to raise a virtual hand that you want to speak.

Phone number management - Track DIDs, ext, available numbers

Lync needs phone number management showing ranges, available numbers (DIDs or ext), and who has what number. Right now I have to track this in excel and/or powershell reports.

Revamp the Desktop Sharing engine

The use of RDP for desktop sharing is very slow over limited WAN links and wastes a lot of bandwidth. They should either find a way to allow RDP to be tuned for < 100k of bandwidth or find a better engine.
