Lync Client

Lync function windows

The Lync client should be redesigned to organize or automatically "snap" the user's call(s) and/or conference windows to the main window of the Lync client. This way the user will not have several "call" windows in the taskbar and desktop.

This will allow for easier organization of calls in a busy environment where the user has multiple applications running.

GUI and PS command to see who is federating with me

When running open federation the only way of checking which organizations that are federating with your organization is to go into your edge server (in that workgroup in that DMZ), open the event viewer and look for Event ID 14601. Here you will find a list of all active domains (organizations) that are currently federating with you. My suggestion is that this list should be visible in the Lync Server Control Panel... more »

Lync Meeting Invite

to be able to include in the invite automatically, the link to join via a web client, in other words, with "?sl=1" at the end of the meeting path.

The comment discussion is also overlapping with the "Web Conference invite customized" suggestion. Vote for his too, or merge these ideas... more »

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.

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 »

SBA/SBS Response Group Functionality

At present when an SBA goes into Survivability mode, users lose all RGS functionality. A good example is that a customer may use an RGS for the branch sites Reception. Obviously SBA's are not powerful enough to run IVR's but there could be a "Backup Hunt Group" within the Response Group workflow. E.g. Normal operation all RGS calls are dealt with via FE Pool (HG or IVR) During WAN/Pool Down scenario the SBA can still... more »
