Lync Phone Edition EWS Integration

For organizations that require password changes (which almost all do), when I change my Active Directory account password it does not update the password on Lync Phone Edition. Generally this isn't an issue as the phone keeps working, BUT, Exchange intregration on the phone becomes unavailable because my password is wrong. I cannot view Call Logs, Voicemails, or Calendar on the phone. It requires me (and our users)... more »

Desktop/Application Sharing - User Control time limit

It would be good to see a conferencing policy option that has a time limit setting for how long someone is able to control a machine, once they have passed the time limit they can request control again, This would be a useful security feature, as users may forget someone has control to their machine leaving the machine exposed.

Meet Now button in Lync via Outlook Web App / Exchange Online

I had fun writing this post last night and pushing the boundaries of Lync in OWA. It got me thinking. The addition of a 'Meet Now' button on the Contact card, right beside "Schedule a meeting", would be perfect. It could create the meeting space, log you into the Lync Online meeting in your browser and send an invite to your Lync contact to join the meeting. The new Lync Online experience in the browser makes good use... more »

Extend RBAC to Topology Builder

We have 30-some root-level sites defined in our Topology. Most of those are run by independent IT staffs. Those staffs do not have rights to publish Topology (they could then change stuff that they have no need to change in other sites). The downside is that there is a core group of us who publishes the topologies for all of these sites. As such, the requests come in to us in numerous formats (even though we try to... more »

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 »
