Sefautil is a nice tool for configuring call forwarding, delegates, group call pickup, etc. But it's quirky, lacks good reporting and error handling, and just plain difficult if you don't use it often. Having standard cmdlets to perform these tasks would be a blessing.
Admin level ability to disable "Hide My Picture" in Lync Client
When adding a new user with EV through the Lync Control Panel or through powershell, you must add
"tel:" in front of the (required) telephone number. Since this requirement is there 100% of time lync should just go ahead and add "tel:" on its own.
It would be nice if there was a LSCP and LSMS option to send a broadcast IM to multiple users (maybe based on AD Distribution List), without it creating a conference with all of the users. Critical messages could then be conveyed through IM.
When you EV enable someone and assign a LineURI, it would be nice if this also updated the Telephone Number field on the user's AD account
Provide a method for logging/auditing administrator actions and changes in Lync, similar to that already implemented in Exchange and SharePoint.
The ability to "clone" a given policy from an existing policy. This would be great for when you want to create another policy that has the same settings, except one or two.
Right now, in environments that have multiple pools, you're prompted with a pick list of which pool you want to connect to. It would be nice if you could set a default pool. Then, in the Control Panel itself, provide an option to change pools.
Lync has a "Default" SIP domain. The CSCP should populate the SIP domain fields on the form with this value automatically.

Right now, you cannot change which pool a dial-in access number is assigned to. That association can only be set when the number is added. During migrations, you often need to move numbers to a new pool from a legacy pool. This entails deleting the number, then adding it back in, changing only the assign pool. It would be nice if you could edit it in CP and set a new pool association.
Right now, the LRS admin portal is a separate download and install, with many people unable to get it working correctly. Roll this into the web services already built into the front ends.
If an administrator changes a user's SIP address because of marriage, divorce, etc., automatically correct that users contact in all other internal users' contact lists. This will prevent that user from appearing as "presence unknown", and they won't have to remove & re-add the user with the new address.
Right now, you can assign a number to a RGS workflow that's already assigned to something else, like a user. This causes all kinds of issues, because inbound calls will get the "not in use or disconnected" recording.
When you use the cmdlet, it spews a fair amount of verbose info to the screen, even when -verbose is not used. This is not expected behavior. It should only be displayed when -verbose is used. This is problematic for those who use this programmatically.
