Lync Web App + Dial-In Conference Number works pretty well. A neat feature would be to make use of the PIC Audio/Video connectivity with Windows Live Messenger to allow a guest to be "called" based on their Windows Live ID. All the collaboration would still use Lync Web App, but Audio and Video would be handled via Windows Live Messenger. This would allow Lync Web App to be useable for guest users without having to ...more »
Just a couple of ideas to improve the user experience. Many of these features are already in Live Messenger. 1. Cut and paste embedded images.

If I open my mobile version, the answers my desktop may have received do not show up on my phone and the previous comments in our discussion are not there, either. 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 »
May be useful if the Lync Mobile client could set the user's status "In a call" during a traditional call on the smartphone.
Currently the policy allow users administrators to allow use of SfB Mobile for any user and also Call Via Work and IP Calling. Any user who is enterprise voice enabled can make calls either through IP calling or Call Via Work. Disabling these two on Mobility policy disables peer to peer calling on Skype and also stops joining conferencing with IP audio.

The Lync/Skype4B client and mobile app should have an option to update our linkedin profile link in our Lync/Skype4B profile as an optional feature. That will actually help the work groups and peers to stay connected more efficiently in a professional manner and able to know each other more closely.
