Desktop/Application Sharing - User Control time limit

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.

Separate PSTN participants from anoymous participants

When users are enabled for the Dial-in conferences "EnableDialInConferencing = $true" you need to enable "AllowAnonymousParticipantsInMeeting = $true" as well because otherwise PSTN participants needs Lync account to be able to join meeting by phone.

If you think the security level between participants coming through the edge or they are coming through the PSTN conference they are night and day. So it is wrong that these... more »

Conference administration improvements

A number of improvements that would help us support remote conferences:

Ability to move dial-in access numbers to another pool

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.

It would be nice if you could edit it in CP and set a new pool association.

Customisable dial-in conferencing IDs

Lync currently allocates me a random dial-in conferencing ID. Sometimes I'll get a 'friendly' number, and other times it'll be one devoid of nice numeric sequences or patterns.

I'd like the Administrator (or maybe even the user!) to be able to specify their preferred dial-in conference ID, perhaps when the user goes to the dialin page, or otherwise via PowerShell.

Lync should quarantine IDs that have been used before,... more »
