Lync 2013 Client - client certificate login

For organizations like ours that have Smart Card login enforced (no user/password), we are unable to use iOS, Windows Phone and other clients except Lync "desktop" Client from domain joined computer (user is logged on to computer with SmartCard therefore it has kerberos ticket issued). If Lync non-desktop client could support client certificates, we could easily export client cert from smart card and import it to iOS,... more »

Limit AppSharing for specific applications

I have encountered scenarios where customers due to Security concerns need to Control what users can share, but not remove the possibility entirely. In such a case the Desktop/Application/None feature within Conferencing Policy is not enough.
This could be implemented the same way that the TrustModelData registry key is used for domain trust, so that GPO or ADMX could be Applied by admins. Preferably both an included/allowed... more »

ADFS support

Lync should be able to provide better user identity management and AD integration through ADFS and DirSync or similar. This is currently a major limitation for LHP, hosted solutions when cloud AD integration is not possible. Current solutions involve complex, costly and often limited identity management solutions like FIM or third parties.

Add cmdlets to manage custom presence

Right now, if you want custom presence for your org, you must create an XML file, place it in an accessible location (such as 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2013\Web Components\External Website' on each of your Front Ends), then configure Lync by using Set-CsClientPolicy. I think a better solution would be cmdlets that let you add/set/remove customer presence settings, and the XML file management would be automatic.... more »

Schedule recoding for a meeting

In many occasions there is an interesting meeting which you are not able to attend as it might be conflicting with other meeting or all-together does not fit conviniently with your working hours.
It would be helpful to shcedule a meeting to be recorded in advance without having to actually attend it and then start the recording.

Today's work-arounds:
1) Ask from the meeting organizer or someone else which is going to... more »

Response Group Reports drill down into Abandoned

Out of the box the RGS reports are quite good. The biggest complaint I get is when customers see the abandoned calls percentage then ask "Why were these abandoned?".

You have to drill down into offered calls and work it out on the SIP response codes. It would be a lot better if there was an "Unanswered Calls" column that you could drill down into. This would just need to show the call and why it wasn't answered.... more »

Coexistence with Exchange 2007 and 2013

I would like to see Lync 2013 updated to have the ability to work properly in an environment that has both Exchange 2007 and 2013 running in a coexistence scenario. Currently if pointed to Exch 2013 but your mailbox is not migrated yet, Exch 2013 does a fine job at being a proxy and not causing an outage to the end user. However Lync constantly prompts with "Exchange needs your credentials". No matter what you enter... more »

Persistent chat layout.

I miss the GroupChats layout. On that the names were not taking up space between the messages and there was no "air" between the messages. This meant I could see three times as many messages on the same screen space. I could get the overview of a situation much faster, since I didn't have to scroll to get a bit more history.

Custom Federation Disclaimers

The ability to send a generic Archiving Disclaimer to federated partners is nice, but not nearly sufficient for many organizations. For instance, some may have legal departments that wish to convey more than a simple Archiving Disclaimer - they may wish to remind both parties that the conversation is taking place with a Federated Partner, and not with an internal contact (sometimes we can glaze over things with the tabbed... more »
