When a conference is established, the conference is hosted within the frontend pool the meeting organizer is hosted on. This is the case even if there are multiple locations, each with their own frontend pool. In the example where a meeting is established between an organizer in site A who is homed on the Site A frontend pool and 100 participants in Site B who are homed on the Site B frontend pool, separate media streams ...more »
Its a pity that when I click Join Lync Meeting and then choose to join the meeting audio via a DDI of my choosing that the video is then disabled.
Would be handy if I still had the option to have video without the workaround of joining without audio and then inviting my DDI.
We've been seeing an increase in the number of Lync folks that have native Lync clients connected to a non-open environment. Largely these appear to be US government folks. When we attempt to invite them to a meeting, their native client takes priority and attempts to connect but fails due to their non federated environment or firewall. We then have them back track and open up the web client. While this is a workaround ...more »
Right now there are no synthetic tests for OWAS. It would be nice if there were to help streamline deployments, health checks, and troubleshooting.
I think that Office Web App is a good solution to manage the PP presentation to PC, Mac and iPad, but the requirement to be a separate server is not so good.
I think could be better to have the option to install it on the Front-End, very practice in a single FE deployment.
In more complex deployment the stand-alone OWA server remain the best solution.
to be able to include in the invite automatically, the link to join via a web client, in other words, with "?sl=1" at the end of the meeting path. Clients with closed federations who can't join the meeting using their Lync client, could then just click on the Web Client Only link. The comment discussion is also overlapping with the "Web Conference invite customized" suggestion. Vote for his too, or merge these ideas ...more »
I get asked every project: can we customize/marketize the Web Conference Invite that goes out in email? This could could be as simple as exposing the underlying DLL or whatever it is for editing. Or better yet, give us a small engine to do the editing with logos, custom help URL's, ability to change the UGLY appearance of the Dialin numbers, etc. If the standard invite has a parameter, we should be able to change ...more »
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
I had fun writing this post last night and pushing the boundaries of Lync in OWA. It got me thinking. The addition of a 'Meet Now' button on the Contact card, right beside "Schedule a meeting", would be perfect. It could create the meeting space, log you into the Lync Online meeting in your browser and send an invite to your Lync contact to join the meeting. The new Lync Online experience in the browser makes good use ...more »
