Send message confirmation

All too often you may be searching for someone and unknowingly send a message to the wrong person with a similar name. Sometimes in the worst case, you may send a message about cats or something silly to a manager way higher up instead of that friend, with obvious repercussions.

I propose a confirmation box (something along the lines of "Do you really wish to send this message to 'full name'") to show up for the first... more »

I am using lync. i feel , it is very slow compare to other IM. even I can't chat and send file they are in offline. I should wait instill he back to his seat. in our company nobody like lync. we have more than 60 licenses it comes with Office365, still everybody uses only Skype , it is very user friendly. please try to improve performance and think as a end user.

Show number of current IM sessions next to name

There are times when you get blasted with many IM messages at one time. If I could see that someone already had an IM session open, I would not IM them and hope others would do the same or at least know you are one of many IMs the person has going. If you could see perhaps with a number next to the name indicating how many current sessions are in progress, it would cut back on IMs that can wait or be sent with email.

Improve RCC

I know this is completely against MS ideas but a number of customer are disappointed of limitations of Lync voice features at the moment but they want other features like chat and desktop sharing and conferencing. If Lync would support RCC with a common protokol like CSTA this would boost the market.

LinkedIn profile link in Lync/Skype4B app/client

The Lync/Skype4B client and mobile app should have an option to update our linkedin profile link in our Lync/Skype4B profile as an optional feature. That will actually help the work groups and peers to stay connected more efficiently in a professional manner and able to know each other more closely.

Manage attendee Screen view

It would be great if there is an option for presenter to control or set in meeting options the screenview for attendees and maximize the screen size if needed. This is a desired feature by our sales team as they will like to maximize the the attendee view when performing demos. Currently go to meeting defaults to it.

Trigger visual cue in contact list when user status changes.

As a user, I'd like to see a visual cue when one of my contacts' status changes.

For example, John goes offline, and just after modifying his status, the background color of his name turns some configurable color and then fades. The fade interval should be variable with a slider in the UI or some other means of changing the duration of the fade-out.

This indication would immediately draw my eye to Lync and keep tabs... more »

Start-up/Load Time Improvment (Office 365)

The computers in our office are top of the line aside from all having solid state HDDs. The start-up speed for Lync/Skype-for-Business is unacceptable. There must be some code clean-up in that bloated start up to speed things along.


Most of our users are disabling the program from starting up with the computer due to it's bogging it down!
