Add -DomainController to New-CsCommonAreaPhone

Enable-CsUser has -DomainController, as do Get/Set-CsCommonAreaPhone. Being certain which domain controller a Common Area Phone is created on would enhance provisioning performance, enabling policies to be granted right after object creation.

 

This affects large environments with multiple DCs in far-flung locations.

 

This discrepancy is still present in Skype for Business Server.

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 »

Native Ethical Firewall Functionality

There are a few 3rd-party vendors out there with Ethical Firewall solutions (granular control of which groups of users or individual users can communicate with other users), but none are complete solutions, and in most cases, business requirements warrant pricey customization by the vendor. It is been a long-time ask that Ethical Firewall functionality be built into the Lync/Skype for Business product, and this would... more »

Running the CU update should update the deployment cache also

Just realised that when you take some role from the Front End away and add it back, the new service is not on the CU level but on the RTM level :(

 

Isn't great that if you deploy the CU it will also update the deployment cache at the same time? So when you run the deployment wizard you do not need to take care of the CUs.

Response Group DL Membership Refresh Timing / Commands

When using distribution lists to govern Response Group membership, the membership only updates every 8 hours. For many businesses this isn't sufficient.

What's needed is at least these two items:
1) A settable policy where this interval can be changed (preferrably, per response group, or at least globally)
2) A PowerShell command that forces a refresh.

This thread offers some insight into this issue:

Show number of current IM sessions next to name

There are times when you get blasted with many IM messages at one time. If I could see that someone already had an IM session open, I would not IM them and hope others would do the same or at least know you are one of many IMs the person has going. If you could see perhaps with a number next to the name indicating how many current sessions are in progress, it would cut back on IMs that can wait or be sent with email.

Control to Change Meeting Layout in Full Screen mode

It would be nice to have the "Pick a Layout" control available in a Skype for Business Online Meeting when in full screen mode. The control disappears in Full Screen Mode and if you want to change to Gallery, Speaker or Content View while in this view you need to first exit full screen mode, make the change and go back into full screen mode.

Increase Test-NetConnection awareness via Set-CS2013Features.ps1 script

Hi the current version of Pat Richards's script prompts to install the telnet client

as an option but it would be cool to add a note like "Windows 2012 R2/powershell 4 detected, you can also use Test-Netconnection" to raise awareness of the cmdlet.

Turn off the pictures of the resources that pop up when you hov

I am using Microsoft Project 2013, There is a problem in Microsoft Project with Lync integration when mouse hovering on any resource it pop's up resource picture in the project plan some times these resource pop up stuck in the middle of the application. It's really good to have such integration to work immediately.

If PM click's on any resource if it pop's up resource picture that could be fine, when mouse hovering... more »
