Right now, you can configure different notification settings for messages submitted to chat rooms. But those settings also apply to your own messages. So, if you have the client running on multiple machines, you get the notifications for messages you submit. Would be nice if there was a 'disable notifications for your own messages' setting.
Ego Feed alerts work great. But if you already have a specific room open in the client, any related alerts for that room should be suppressed.
If you right click on a pchat room in the Lync 2013 client, you can broadcast a message. But you can't drag more chat rooms into that list. You have to close it and then select all of the chat rooms and right click. It would be nice if you could drag and drop chat rooms into the list if the dialog box is already open.
This is a feature that users of Jabber systems have as a standard feature and Lync Online does not have. I love Lync Online, but that feature would be great for our organization.

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.
I would like a way to force a user to follow a chat room. I have some IT chat rooms that i use to broadcast important messages to the IT team so i don't have to over use the mail system. I have asked nicely for the IT members to follow the rooms but some still have not. i am not the manager of them so i can't "boss" them to do it, but if i could force them some way in the background that would make my life easier
Possibly moving the tabs to a tab in the main window would make for more efficient space use (so alongside the GROUPS, STATUS etc tabs).

The same sometimes happens if pasting an image into chat.
Presumably this is to accommodate the extra content's size; however it's annoying as generally you place a window where you want it / don't expect it to change.
Having this auto-resize as a user preference rather than mandatory feature would allow... more »
There should be a search function for persistent chats that allows you to specify a time period to search in and/or specific text.
For organisations that use persistent chats as a way of logging our activities, this would be... more »
Persistent Chat is a fantastic tool for collaboration and knowledge sharing. What would make it better would be to have it support federation, allowing people from outside the Lync AD Domain to be members of Chat Rooms and participate. Anything in the near future?
I know there is an option within the Lync Client to disable photos, but this is an all or nothing option.
The Lync application should still be able to show photos within the Buddy/Contact list and the title bar of the chat window. However I think it is but redundant to have the photo... more »

The conversation history is saved in Outlook and viewable from the client but you cant see the chat history when you open a chatwindow with a user.
It would be good to see the last conversations and last Contact when you start to chat with a user.
The feature was included in Live Messenger and very useful.
This has (allegedly) made it prettier and aligned it with Outlook etc, but has made it significantly less user friendly, as you have to scroll back through conversations... more »
Have a persistent updating of both desktop and mobile to keep the conversations in sync only makes sense for people on the go (which is nearly everyone these days). I... more »
