Lync Server

Reverse-lookup dialin conference participants against AD or ABS.

If I join a dial-up conference using my mobile phone and I do not authenticate, Lync shows my phone number in the participant list.


I suggest Lync should perform a reverse-number lookup against the Address Book (or the corporate AD) and show my name instead of my phone number.


This would serve two purposes - it would obviously help identify me to the others on the call, and it maintains the privacy/secrecy of my phone number.


Additional benefit: if you have frequent external contacts captured as Contacts in AD, these would also show them by their name rather than the mystery of their number.
