Additional/Expansion of Emoticons

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 »

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

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.

Add BToE standard component into Lync Client

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.

Searchable Organization Chart

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.
