Today there is no decent way of doing call recording on a multi-site Lync implimentation. You need to have appliances at each location to capture the packets. It would be helpful if there was a centralized method of getting all peer-to-peer and PSTN type traffic
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 »
This would be a nice feature to help prevent people stepping on each other. Essentially click a button to raise a virtual hand that you want to speak.
Right now, there is only an option for "PSTN callers bypass lobby", but no similar option for anonymous. It would be nice if this was possible.
Note that this option is already available via the user's client settings, but not in the server policy.
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 »
Lync currently allocates me a random dial-in conferencing ID. Sometimes I'll get a 'friendly' number, and other times it'll be one devoid of nice numeric sequences or patterns. I'd like the Administrator (or maybe even the user!) to be able to specify their preferred dial-in conference ID, perhaps when the user goes to the dialin page, or otherwise via PowerShell. Lync should quarantine IDs that have been used before,... more »
I wish there was a msRTCSIP-GroupingID function for the dial-in conferencing numbers. Same way as it is possible to group users together in the address book with grouping id, it should be possible to block/allow access to dial-in conferencing numbers. This relates to the Lync On-Premise version. In one environment I work with there is 35 dial-in conferencing numbers, in different countries. It is fine that they are all... more »
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 »
When in a Skype conference call and a colleague who sits next to, or close to me is talking, I can hear them twice like an echo. I can hear them speaking in the room but also delayed on my headset, due to latency issues, a second or so later. It is extremely off-putting and difficult to hear what they are saying. Often the only solution is for us to move desks so we are further away and can't hear each other, or to book... more »
If I join a dial-up conference using my mobile phone and I do not authenticate, Lync shows my phone number in the participant list. I suggest Lync should perform a reverse-number lookup against the Address Book (or the corporate AD) and show my name instead of my phone number. This would serve two purposes - it would obviously help identify me to the others on the call, and it maintains the privacy/secrecy of my phone... more »
Conferencing policies have an option for "Allow federated and anonymous participants to take control". This should be separated into two different check boxes. One for federated, and one for anonymous.
Right now, if you attempt to join a meeting and get placed in the lobby, you can't adjust/change devices. It would be nice if you could change devices before entering the meeting, while in the lobby.
Right now, you cannot change which pool a dial-in access number is assigned to. That association can only be set when the number is added. During migrations, you often need to move numbers to a new pool from a legacy pool. This entails deleting the number, then adding it back in, changing only the assign pool. It would be nice if you could edit it in CP and set a new pool association.
When users are enabled for the Dial-in conferences "EnableDialInConferencing = $true" you need to enable "AllowAnonymousParticipantsInMeeting = $true" as well because otherwise PSTN participants needs Lync account to be able to join meeting by phone. If you think the security level between participants coming through the edge or they are coming through the PSTN conference they are night and day. So it is wrong that these... more »
A number of improvements that would help us support remote conferences: 1. Force use of the web client. Our most troublesome participants are ones that already have a lync client installed. (os-x office 2011) Forcing the use of the web client ensures we know what software they are connecting using and we know everyone is experiencing the conference the same way. 2. Force/create static layouts. Allow a default, non-changable... more »
