All too often you may be searching for someone and unknowingly send a message to the wrong person with a similar name. Sometimes in the worst case, you may send a message about cats or something silly to a manager way higher up instead of that friend, with obvious repercussions. I propose a confirmation box (something along the lines of "Do you really wish to send this message to 'full name'") to show up for the first ...more »
I am using lync. i feel , it is very slow compare to other IM. even I can't chat and send file they are in offline. I should wait instill he back to his seat. in our company nobody like lync. we have more than 60 licenses it comes with Office365, still everybody uses only Skype , it is very user friendly. please try to improve performance and think as a end user.
The Lync/Skype4B client and mobile app should have an option to update our linkedin profile link in our Lync/Skype4B profile as an optional feature. That will actually help the work groups and peers to stay connected more efficiently in a professional manner and able to know each other more closely.
I know this is completely against MS ideas but a number of customer are disappointed of limitations of Lync voice features at the moment but they want other features like chat and desktop sharing and conferencing. If Lync would support RCC with a common protokol like CSTA this would boost the market.
It would be good to see a conferencing policy option that has a time limit setting for how long someone is able to control a machine, once they have passed the time limit they can request control again, This would be a useful security feature, as users may forget someone has control to their machine leaving the machine exposed.
allow the user (or administrator) to choose the camera on/off default status when answering a video call. Feature has changed with LYNC2010 and onwards vs OCS/MOC in this area - now when you answer an incoming video call, your camera is default disabled, and you need to activate on a per call basis.
Special administrator client that shows all users in the organisation, with detailed information for quick views to who is signed in or not, hours on Lync perhaps seperated via presence.Ability to manage other user accounts directly for call forwards, etc.
I have noted that Set Location has the ability (perhaps through IP address) to detect my current location. It would be a very good enhancement, linked to this capability, to have the option of setting your default printer preference for a specific location. This would reduce the events where a print job is sent to a local or network printer that is not at your "current location", which is always annoying, embarassing ...more »
Allow user to keep a number of stored photos in their profile. Then allow user to change photos on the fly - even in the middle of a Lync conversation session. Useful example would be to show photo based on what project or responsibilitites you are working on that week/month. On the lighter side, you could click to change the photo MOOD for the day, or even for the current conversation. Example, while discussing ...more »
I would verry much like to see better support for development in vb.net.
Not everyone likes SeePhotocopierbrand(C#)
Or at least a lot more examples for vb.net.
What would be awesome is to see an api to simply send I'M from my own applications or services instead of dropping email when something stops.
Or better yet to a persistent chat for IT staff etc.
Currently the "Call me at" dropdown only lists phone numbers from my Phones options. I would like to create a custom list of numbers to include each conference room that I typically use, and name each entry in the list accordingly. Even better if the dropdown could automatically contain the phone number of the conference room the meeting is being held in! This would be very helpful for meeting organizers / presenters. ...more »
Add the Alert Option to "Minimize new messages I receive". Default this to be check marked. When not check marked, a window will pop-up with a new message received.
This is useful when someone sends you a message while you're away from your computer, because it's not obvious otherwise.
