Lync Client

Auto populate lync contacts from outlook Address book & skype

Skype does auto search address book/contacts and find who's connected. This fast tracks adoption.
It's kind of clunky that we say Lync integrates with Outlook contacts, but then you have to add lync contacts all over again one by one?!? People expect this to be at least like Skype, so ping each contact to Skype while you're at it. To make things 'usable' you have to make it easy to use from the beginning and show... more »

Contact list sorting and save state in Mac client

Right now, you can't reorder the groups in the contact list in the Mac client. Groups are sorted alphabetically. And whenever you login, the groups are all expanded. Allow for custom order of groups, and keep the state between logins. Also, allow for expansion of distribution groups in the contact list. This is not currently possible.

With the functionality of PINNING items to the windows taskbar along with pinning activities/files/info to specific programs on the taskbar, it would be very useful if I could pin contacts from my Lync Contacts to the windows taskbar. Or, alternatively, have the contacts in my Favorites folder in lync be pinned to the... more »

Lync Server

Update SIP address & auto correct those with this user added

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.

A better contacts experience

Contacts and contact management is generally good, however it lacks the finesse that could make it awesome. I find myself continually frustrated with what is a seemingly simple but highly important feature. I don't think I have seen a single deployment without a least 1 issue - Outlook integration, duplicate contacts, disappearing phone numbers, inability to search contacts added to custom groups, poor or hopelessly... more »
