Call forwarding based on presence

I know there were tons of call forwarding asks. But what about if we ask at first a tiny improvement for the call forwarding. If we ask too much, most of the cases we do not get anything. So the most simplest help is, if users (or administrator as a default or using GPO) can define what shall happen when user's status is "in a meeting", "do not disturb (currently call forwarding does not work at all with DND), "busy" ...more »

Modular Response Groups

One of the biggest limitations I have found with Lync from our traditional PBX system is lack of in-depth workflows/call handling with response groups. Currently, our Lync deployment is rock solid, however as our organization grows, we are finding that Lync is continuously being a bottleneck at what we can/cannot do with call routing at the response group level. One thing our organization would like is the ability ...more »

Delegate backup

If delegates are associated with the task to answer calls for a manager, the manager sets "Simultaneous call" to the delegate, but then the delegate needs to go on lunch break or in a long meeting. The delegate should be able to either change the call forwarding settings of the manager, or set call forwarding to a backup person who will ALSO receive the calls of the manager. With Lync 2010 this was not possible. Not sure ...more »

Client Side Call recording

If I had a dollar for everytime I was asked for call recording. That said, a few months ago I noticed that the Lync 2013 client (15.0.4517.1504 - 32-bit) had the option to record a standard 2 party call. I thought that it was going to stay but the very next update made it disappear. One of my users refuses to update Lync client to hold on to this function. It would be awesome if this was available without having to buy ...more »

Call Park Range Per Branch Office/Site

Currently Lync can only have one Call Park orbit/configuration for each site that contains a Front End Pool (or more than 1 FE pool). This means that a site with only a SBA/SBS does not have its own Call Park configuration. Companies that use call park generally want one Call Park range (or at bare minimum call park configuration) per Branch Office so that they can have a timeout destination per office. (not have call ...more »

Call Pickup Keyboard Shortcut

Lync has many Keyboard Shortcut, the one that miss is one for Call Pickup. Scenario: many EV users, only Lync client 2013 is used, no IP Phones. If a user is member of a CallPickup Group it need to place a call to the CP number to answer a collague's call. I think the client should: - autodetect if the user is member of a CallPickup Group and the number of that group - offer a native Keyboard Shortcut to quick dial the ...more »

Parked Calls (Through Gateway) After Park TimeOut Act Weird

UserB (person call parked for) are able to answer a parked call (external call incoming /thru pstn/sip) EVEN after "CallPickupTimeoutThreshold" completes and when the call is ringing back to the user who parked the call (UserA). So at this time the call is ringing back to UserA, but if UserB picks up the parked call (and they can), UserA will continue to ring! If UserA answers, this call becomes a 3 party conference, ...more »
