Like Exchange Server Unified Messaging, Lync Server should use the msDS-PhoneticDisplayName attribute instead of the DisplayName attribute to modify the way it announces names during meetings.
Nudge functionality should be brought back from the days of Windows Messenger.
Lync 2010 allowed you to make it much Thinner than 2013 does. Please allow us to make it thinner if we so please.
The red space in the following image would be ideal, there is nothing important that would be blocked from the UI's standpoint, so why is it limited to this width?
The computers in our office are top of the line aside from all having solid state HDDs. The start-up speed for Lync/Skype-for-Business is unacceptable. There must be some code clean-up in that bloated start up to speed things along.
Most of our users are disabling the program from starting up with the computer due to it's bogging it down!
This could be implemented the same way that the TrustModelData registry key is used for domain trust, so that GPO or ADMX could be Applied by admins. Preferably both an included/allowed... more »
Lync should be able to provide better user identity management and AD integration through ADFS and DirSync or similar. This is currently a major limitation for LHP, hosted solutions when cloud AD integration is not possible. Current solutions involve complex, costly and often limited identity management solutions like FIM or third parties.
It would be quite handy to be able to dock the dial pad when in a call instead of repeatably having to hover over the phone/mute button. I know you can use the number pad on a keyboard but sometimes button presses are not registered and you then have to find the window to get the dial pad up.
A feature is required that enables established calls to be "moved" from one device to another while in mid-call. This would enable users to take a call on their mobile device (VoIP or Cellular), walk into their office and continue the call on their PC Client.
Of course the reverse should be possible as well. with the call moving to the moble device over VoIP or Cellular.... more »

How about a drop-down box for the Lync client SIP sign-in ?
Let's call it Lync Client - "Consultant Edition" :-)
Entries in drop down box should be pulled from SIP profiles on device.
I have multiple SIP profiles for multiple clients and am forever flipping between profiles.
please allow optional display of a contact's actual time at their location under their name. This must be take from computer's set time and time zone. That would allow for people who travel to set a new time zone and then this would always be correct.
In the past, updates to the Lync client have come as Cumulative Update packs which could be rolled out in bulk to upgrade all users to a similar level of patches.
Now that the updates are dumped into the Windows Updates for Office 2013 batch, it's very hard to keep track of JUST the Lync Client updates. We'd like to maintain the Lync updates separately, as the larger CU packs.
Most of the Lync Control Panel drop down boxes are in the order that they were added to the topology. Make them atleast Alphabetical. Deployments with over 200+ Branches make things hard to find ;-)
