Since it requires a Lync software license to install it on a home computer a web based client would be good for users who want to communicate with their contacts when at home.

On the Lync client, there is a tab where users can see the call history, incoming and outgoing calls. But there is no way to distinguish incoming from outgoing calls. I cannot believe that this is so difficult to achieve. Just an arrow pointing inwards or outwards would be fine.
The Lync Web App plug-in is great and could be used to add Audio and Video capability to Exchange OWA, to use it as a full client when the user could no use anything else (for eg. Internet Cafè)
At this moment 3PIP phone vendors have to create it's own version of BToE PC client and add the function to the phone fw.
The results are not so good and very different between vendors, so the user experience is not uniform.
I think MS should add a standard BToE component into Lync Client, so the 3PIP vendors only need to add the BToE to the phone code, and the IT stuff do not need to add a separete BToE client.
It would be nice if you could resize the client IM window, that it save the size and position for future conversations.
The Setting for unanswered calls resets every time the user sets the call forwarding to a Special Destination.
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.
Version 15.0.4420.1017; MSO: 15.0.4420.1017 puts a timestamp on each individual post in a persistent chat room. Version 15.0.4623.1000; MSO: 15.0.4615.1000 no longer has that behavior.
Bring back this feature but make it a configuration option for persistent chat.
Currently, the fit to window only zooms OUT. So if the user sharing has a larger desktop, the setting shrinks the shared content to fit your screen. Fit to window should also zoom IN, so the picture grows to be legible when the shared desktop area is small, say a laptop or tablet.
Right now, you can add a phone number to your Lync contacts list. But you can't right click on it and change the privacy relationship to blocked. This would be a welcome solution for users who want to block numbers in orgs that don't have a number blocking solution in place.
If you right-click on a lync window there is an option to keep the window 'Always on Top' of other windows. I'd like to see that be an option to set so that all active calls default to this window behavior. This should reduce hang up delays when using a PC for Lync calls where there are several windows open and you are forced to search for the active lync voice conversation to close it.
It would be nice if you could assign hotkeys to common voice functions like hold, hangup, transfer & bring active call window to foreground, etc. This is a great feature in Skype that I use extensively.
NOTE: In Lync 2013 there is a Global/OS Wide hotkeys for:
-Answer = Win+A
-Mute = Windows+F4
With the recent security updates, the system tray icon changed to the Lync logo, and is no longer a representation of your presence. I liked it the old way!
