The server side supports it, since using the Lync 2010 Group Chat allows users to send files through Lync 2013. It's about time the Lync 2013 client provided this functionality as well.
Version 15.0.4420.1017; MSO: 15.0.4420.1017 puts a timestamp on each individual post in a persistent chat room. Version 15.0.4623.1000; MSO: 15.0.4615.1000 no longer has that behavior.
Bring back this feature but make it a configuration option for persistent chat.
So we all use & love the ability to send screen shots/image/or files via lync on 1 on 1 sessions, however alot of times i have been in group chats & needed to share an item with all of the members but am unable to.
The same functionality to screen shot or use the snipping tool to grab and share and image should be available in the group chat without needing to do anything other than paste it in the group chat box.
Persistent Chat is a fantastic tool for collaboration and knowledge sharing. What would make it better would be to have it support federation, allowing people from outside the Lync AD Domain to be members of Chat Rooms and participate. Anything in the near future?
I know there is an option within the Lync Client to disable photos, but this is an all or nothing option.
The Lync application should still be able to show photos within the Buddy/Contact list and the title bar of the chat window. However I think it is but redundant to have the photo... more »

The conversation history is saved in Outlook and viewable from the client but you cant see the chat history when you open a chatwindow with a user.
It would be good to see the last conversations and last Contact when you start to chat with a user.
The feature was included in Live Messenger and very useful.
This has (allegedly) made it prettier and aligned it with Outlook etc, but has made it significantly less user friendly, as you have to scroll back through conversations... more »
Have a persistent updating of both desktop and mobile to keep the conversations in sync only makes sense for people on the go (which is nearly everyone these days). I... more »
There should be a search function for persistent chats that allows you to specify a time period to search in and/or specific text.
For organisations that use persistent chats as a way of logging our activities, this would be... more »
Right now, you can configure different notification settings for messages submitted to chat rooms. But those settings also apply to your own messages. So, if you have the client running on multiple machines, you get the notifications for messages you submit. Would be nice if there was a 'disable notifications for your own messages' setting.
Ego Feed alerts work great. But if you already have a specific room open in the client, any related alerts for that room should be suppressed.
If you right click on a pchat room in the Lync 2013 client, you can broadcast a message. But you can't drag more chat rooms into that list. You have to close it and then select all of the chat rooms and right click. It would be nice if you could drag and drop chat rooms into the list if the dialog box is already open.
