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.
When full screening a conference, certain events, view chat, view attendees, etc will cause the client to exit full screen mode. It would be nice that once full screened, the conference would function in a kiosk-like mode for all normal operations and only exit full screen when I want it to.
We need a policy or configuration tab under conferencing to control features of the Lync Web App Globally or at the Pool level.
- Option to turn off Audio on initial meeting join
- Configuration of timeout for users joined anonymously via Lync Web App
The dial-in page formatting is really generic, and poorly formatted. Sure, you can customize it, such that listed at http://exchangepro.dk/2013/08/28/how-to-customize-lync-dialin-page/#!, but the fact is the page still has very little style.
Its a pity that when I click Join Lync Meeting and then choose to join the meeting audio via a DDI of my choosing that the video is then disabled.
Would be handy if I still had the option to have video without the workaround of joining without audio and then inviting my DDI.
Right now, if one presenter locks the video spotlight, it becomes the view for all attendees. This should either be an individual setting, or something that can be disabled either by policy or meeting options from the organizer.
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 »
1. Force use of the web client. Our most troublesome participants are ones that already have a lync client installed. (os-x office 2011) Forcing the use of the web client ensures we know what software they are connecting using and we know everyone is experiencing the conference the same way.
2. Force/create static layouts. Allow a default, non-changable... more »
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.
Right now, when you record a call, the recording title is the name of the recipients. I find this fairly useless. It would make more sense to use the title of the meeting/call, instead. Or have it be an option to switch between them.
I suggest Lync should perform a reverse-number lookup against the Address Book (or the corporate AD) and show my name instead of my phone number.
This would serve two purposes - it would obviously help identify me to the others on the call, and it maintains the privacy/secrecy of my phone... more »
Conferencing policies have an option for "Allow federated and anonymous participants to take control". This should be separated into two different check boxes. One for federated, and one for anonymous.
Right now, if you attempt to join a meeting and get placed in the lobby, you can't adjust/change devices. It would be nice if you could change devices before entering the meeting, while in the lobby.
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.
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 »
