Lync Client Default Click-to-Call Number

The Lync 2013 can be set to default to Lync Call with a powershell command ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg398300.aspx ), however that is only the initial setting. From that point on Lync defaults to the last number called for a contact.

As noted here: http://masteringlync.com/2014/01/27/controlling-click-to-call/

Users mostly make "lync calls", however they might change to someone's cell phone, now... more »

Call Record for Hangups

When a customer calls in to a user and then hangs up in a few seconds, there is no call record generated. I would like to have a call record generated so that I could find out number of hang ups.

 

This does work if a "Response Group" answers the call, but not before it is answered by the response group.

Konfiguration for unanswered calls should be persistent.

The Setting for unanswered calls resets every time the user sets the call forwarding to a Special Destination.

 

For example:

 

1. User has no voicemail enabled

2. User sets destination for unanswered calls to the central office number

3. Now, the user sets a call forwarding to a colleague

4. After disabling the call forwarding, the konfig for unanswered calls resets to "no voicemail, ringing for 20 seconds.

Schedule Response Group Members

It would be very helpful to be able to schedule on call rotations with response groups so that the members can be dynamically scheduled to be on call without having to change the response group or user forwarding manually. This could be achieved with similar functionality as the holiday schedule but routes the calls to a specific user or specified number at a scheduled time/day/week etc.

Lync Should Add a Presense State for Ringing for Call Pickup

As Lync 2013 now has the ability to use Call Pickup which works on the Principle that if u hear the Phone Ring u can Pickup another users Phone Call - which works very well insetad of complex Simultaneous Ring Setup

This Scenario obviously only works if u can hear the phone - now that Phone Vendors like Snom are providing customizable Buttons if Lync Could provide a presence that changes color or flashes to alert user... more »

Call forwarding default timeout as a Global Option

At this moment the default 20sec timeout for call forwarding could be managed by users or via SEFAUtil.

I think could be more practice if this (and some other call forwarding option) became Global Option, managed by a new Policy. The administrator could set it for all, or for some Group of users, could set it mandatory or not and so on....

Call forwarding based on presence

I know there were tons of call forwarding asks. But what about if we ask at first a tiny improvement for the call forwarding. If we ask too much, most of the cases we do not get anything.

So the most simplest help is, if users (or administrator as a default or using GPO) can define what shall happen when user's status is "in a meeting", "do not disturb (currently call forwarding does not work at all with DND), "busy"... more »

Ability to preview the caller ID for Call Pickup Group members

This is a very common feature of traditional PBX: the ability for a Call Pickup Group member to see who is calling and than choose to pickup the call or not.

At this moment if a user is member of a Call Pickup Group there is no way to preview the caller ID.

Every of our customers ask for this feature.

Modular Response Groups

One of the biggest limitations I have found with Lync from our traditional PBX system is lack of in-depth workflows/call handling with response groups. Currently, our Lync deployment is rock solid, however as our organization grows, we are finding that Lync is continuously being a bottleneck at what we can/cannot do with call routing at the response group level. One thing our organization would like is the ability... more »

Delegate backup

If delegates are associated with the task to answer calls for a manager, the manager sets "Simultaneous call" to the delegate, but then the delegate needs to go on lunch break or in a long meeting. The delegate should be able to either change the call forwarding settings of the manager, or set call forwarding to a backup person who will ALSO receive the calls of the manager. With Lync 2010 this was not possible. Not sure... more »

Client Side Call recording

If I had a dollar for everytime I was asked for call recording. That said, a few months ago I noticed that the Lync 2013 client (15.0.4517.1504 - 32-bit) had the option to record a standard 2 party call. I thought that it was going to stay but the very next update made it disappear. One of my users refuses to update Lync client to hold on to this function. It would be awesome if this was available without having to buy... more »
