Today there is no decent way of doing call recording on a multi-site Lync implimentation. You need to have appliances at each location to capture the packets. It would be helpful if there was a centralized method of getting all peer-to-peer and PSTN type traffic
This would allow for more granular control of specific users/groups being able to federate with specific allowed domains, while other users/groups have access to other allowed domains.
Admin level ability to disable "Hide My Picture" in Lync Client
At this moment the default 20sec timeout for call forwarding could be managed by users or via SEFAUtil.
I think could be more practice if this (and some other call forwarding option) became Global Option, managed by a new Policy. The administrator could set it for all, or for some Group of users, could set it mandatory or not and so on....
Right now, there is only an option for "PSTN callers bypass lobby", but no similar option for anonymous. It would be nice if this was possible.
Note that this option is already available via the user's client settings, but not in the server policy.
The ability to "clone" a given policy from an existing policy. This would be great for when you want to create another policy that has the same settings, except one or two.
Right now, the Lync client will download the address book at a randomly chosen interval between 5 minutes and 60 minutes after sign-in. This can be controlled via the registry in a method described at http://policelli.com/blog/archive/2011/03/16/how-to-force-an-address-book-refresh-on-lync-client/. I think it would make more sense to make this part of the client policy.
3rd party applications that can connect to Lync server should be able to be blocked.
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, file transfers are either enabled or disabled. But some org security groups have heartburn over files leaving the corp network, or going to federated contacts due to data leakage. A policy option to limit file transfers to just internal endpoints, or just org users, would be nice
Right now, you have to resort to setting registry values via script or GPO to control idle time out (from an admin perspective). It would be nice if this was a policy setting.
It would be nice if you could set the verbiage that users see when their call is blocked by CAC.
Right now you can only assign this globally or per site. It would be great to see this as a user policy so we could define it for Common Area Phones.
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
