The server side supports it, since using the Lync 2010 Group Chat allows users to send files through Lync 2013. It's about time the Lync 2013 client provided this functionality as well.
It would be great if there were an add-on or additional downloadable sets of emoticons to expand the set of emoticons that currently exist. I know I am not the only person who wishes there were emoticons that are more useful. Why is there no "Thumbs Up" but there is an image of a sheep? I don't think a sheep has ever come up in any Lync conversation I've had. I'm sure the community would be able to provide additional... more »
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.
Listening to a conference should not require a microphone. Please fix this
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.
Lync 2013 has made it even harder than before to transfer a call. Now it takes a hover and 2 clicks before you can key the party you want to transfer the call to. If the user mistakenly clicks instead of hovering on the "handset/mike" icon, they end up accidentally muting themself - presumably at a time that they're still talking to the caller whilst trying to make this complicated transfer process appear seamless.... 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.
It would be nice if you could resize the client IM window, that it save the size and position for future conversations.
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.
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 »
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.
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.
Ability to Search / Filter a full-company Organization Chart. (Similar to the Organization Tab on a contact Card).
This would allow for filtering of such things as:
- Displaying only online members
- Displaying only members of 'HR' for example
- Display only members in a certain locale.
Example: - Display all contacts that belong to the HR' Department, are currently online, and in the United Kingdom office.
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.
