Lync Client

"Broadcast a message" should support drag and drop

If you right click on a pchat room in the Lync 2013 client, you can broadcast a message. But you can't drag more chat rooms into that list. You have to close it and then select all of the chat rooms and right click. It would be nice if you could drag and drop chat rooms into the list if the dialog box is already open.

Prevent Lync Window Auto-Resizing

When having a group conversation, if a new participant joins or you change the participant view, the window resizes. The same sometimes happens if pasting an image into chat. Presumably this is to accommodate the extra content's size; however it's annoying as generally you place a window where you want it / don't expect it to change. Having this auto-resize as a user preference rather than mandatory feature would allow ...more »

Persistent chat notification settings for your own messages

Right now, you can configure different notification settings for messages submitted to chat rooms. But those settings also apply to your own messages. So, if you have the client running on multiple machines, you get the notifications for messages you submit. Would be nice if there was a 'disable notifications for your own messages' setting.

Lync Online: Persistent Chat Rooms

Persistent chat rooms are used a lot for call centers and work groups. http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/lync-help/what-is-persistent-chat-HA102919098.aspx This is a feature that users of Jabber systems have as a standard feature and Lync Online does not have. I love Lync Online, but that feature would be great for our organization. Having persistent chat would allow us to have a group chat window, opened all the time, ...more »

Force users to follow persistent chat rooms

I would like a way to force a user to follow a chat room. I have some IT chat rooms that i use to broadcast important messages to the IT team so i don't have to over use the mail system. I have asked nicely for the IT members to follow the rooms but some still have not. i am not the manager of them so i can't "boss" them to do it, but if i could force them some way in the background that would make my life easier

Single Tabbed Window for Lync Windows Client

It would be very convenient to be able to optionally dock the tabbed conversations and the Lync main window panel so that when one of them is focused, all are visible - so clicking any of the lync icons from the taskbar bring the whole of lync to the front. Possibly moving the tabs to a tab in the main window would make for more efficient space use (so alongside the GROUPS, STATUS etc tabs). A robust interface customization ...more »

Implement search / review of persistent chat

Looking for details from several days ago in a busy persistent chat is a complete pain. There is no way to search for relevant information, and no way to quickly view a particular time series. There should be a search function for persistent chats that allows you to specify a time period to search in and/or specific text. For organisations that use persistent chats as a way of logging our activities, this would be ...more »
