Lync Server

Better Response Groups

The current response groups are incredibly basic. I'd like to see something a bit more advanced even if its not a full fledged solution.

 

1. Better queue monitoring

2. Listen in and call recording

3. Office closed for weather message function

4. Better reporting

 

There are tons of very expensive add on ACD/Contact center solutions but MS could make this part of the product functional with some small improvements.

Lync Client

Consult then transfer to in PC client

Lync phone edition has an option to Consult then transfer to. The Attendant has a button for this as well, as well as the ability to hit CTRL+L to achieve the same thing. Microsoft decided to leave this button out of the Lync PC client. It was in the OCS client but not in Lync. I know callers can merge calls using "Current conversation", but a Consult then transfer to button would be so much easier.
