Silverlight 4 supports accessing microphone and webcam inputs. Theoretically, it should be possible to include this functionality in Lync Web App for conferences without requiring PSTN dialin or downloading the attendee client manually.
The ability to import firmware updates from the Control Panel would be nice.
Only about 20% of our users will be enabled for Enterprise voice but the rest might still be participants and leaders of Lync conferences via dial-in.
Unfortunately Lync won't let non-EV enabled users to set a pin so the leaders of the conf cannot control it from the phone.
Would be nice if they could still setup a pin for conference control.
A neat feature would be to make use of the PIC Audio/Video connectivity with Windows Live Messenger to allow a guest to be "called" based on their Windows Live ID. All the collaboration would still use Lync Web App, but Audio and Video would be handled via Windows Live Messenger.
This would allow Lync Web App to be useable for guest users without having to... more »
the Windows Lync client lets you have different ringtones for your calls, team calls, response groups and private calls. It would be nice if this could also be done on Lync Phone Edition.
It should be noted also that snom phones have the ability, although there are only 3 ringtone options (Regular, Forwarded and Private) which is not as many as the Lync client itself.
Device locking is only set for global or sites. Make it available for user scope. I want my conference room phones to have no device locking and don't want to use common area objects (we use exchange resource room accounts that are lync enabled).
The issue we are facing is that our receptionist rely on a feature of a previous consoles we were using with out legacy PBX that is not available in the current Attendant console.
This the ability to store notes on a user or number, and have them available to all receptionists. I know that you can take a note on an... more »
Activity/usage reports should be possible at a group level.
Groups should be defined as distribution list or directly in the Gui.
The access rights to each report should be individually configurable.
In fact it is not directly a Lync feature, but more an Exchange function.
It should be possible for users to upload personalized voicemail greetings for example as a wav- or mp3-file. This would enable the use of professionally produced greetings.
Reason for this; First Aid Response Group
The RG has a group of Lync Users that have either Internal/DDI numbers and number of them users are not always at their desk and forward all calls to mobile numbers.
Having this option available will allow sites to fully utilize the group of First... more »
In Lync it is possible to configure only one EmergencyDialString number. This because in the United States there is only one emergency services number. In other Countries, for example Switzerland, we have multiple emergency numbers and accordingly we have the need to signal location information for multiple numbers!
It should be possible to configure multiple emergency numbers (EmergencyDialString).
it would be nice to have the ability to centrally configure user settings on behalf of a user from LSCP/PS/remotely. For example: change the ring tone across the board, or other setting.
Either via Powershell or LSCP. (not SEFAUTIL :-)
Call Park Music On Hold Config is lost on server reboot. according to microsoft this is known issue. This really should be fixed.
One of the challenges with Exchange UM Auto Attendants is that you cannot have both accept "Key Mapping" and "Dial Extension Number" using the same time Auto Attendant. Would be nice if this functionality could be add to AA's.
Here is a more indepth explanation of the challenge and a work around:
