Thumbs up!

Why is there no thumbs up icon? (y) of all the icons to NOT have in an IM system surely this is the most important. It's nice to be able to acknowledge a message sent to you and a simple (y) does it brilliantly. Please could this be introduced?

S4B - Same controls on all PSTN calls

In the current preview of the Skype for Business client, calls in from the PSTN are given a different set of controls in the call window (dial pad on by default, no Video or Present buttons, adds a Transfer button), unless the caller is a contact. If Skype can reverse look up the phone number in my contacts then it shows the same controls as it would for a Skype-to-Skype call.

This doesn't make sense. If it's one of... more »

VB.net

I would verry much like to see better support for development in vb.net.

Not everyone likes SeePhotocopierbrand(C#)

Or at least a lot more examples for vb.net.

What would be awesome is to see an api to simply send I'M from my own applications or services instead of dropping email when something stops.

Or better yet to a persistent chat for IT staff etc.

Addition of true realtime stats into the Lync/S4B client.

This is the second of my real time analytics enhancements I would like to see in Lync/S4B.

The first was to add true real time monitoring of call/conferences on a per leg, per segment basis to the central monitoring server role. This one concentrates on the client.

Coming from the videoconferencing world, we are used to seeing proper statistical information presented within the client such as Packet Loss, Out of order... more »

To easily switch between video sources (cameras) during a call

Ok, so I have multiple video sources (cameras) attached to my client, perhaps I'm a teacher in a room but not using a room based system. I have a camera pointing at me but also the class, however, I can't easily switch between these when a call is live - yes it can be done, but is very cumbersome and clunky as you need to go through the options in the client, then you need to restart the video.

The user can switch audio... more »

Stored phone numbers for "Call me at"

Currently the "Call me at" dropdown only lists phone numbers from my Phones options. I would like to create a custom list of numbers to include each conference room that I typically use, and name each entry in the list accordingly.

Even better if the dropdown could automatically contain the phone number of the conference room the meeting is being held in! This would be very helpful for meeting organizers / presenters.... more »

Redesign of Lync Contact List (aka Buddy List) & IM Layout

Hate the amount of wasted space on the Lync Contact List. The way I have my window set up, there's potential for a good 60% reduction in the window size.

I really prefer the clean / minimalist approach so I turn off all photos from the contact window.

I don't need any of the "Groups / Status / Relationships / New" tabs, the "Conversations / Calendar" tabs, the always existent "Other Contacts" folder, seeing myself... more »
