Lync Client

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!

Desktop/Application Sharing - User Control time limit

It would be good to see a conferencing policy option that has a time limit setting for how long someone is able to control a machine, once they have passed the time limit they can request control again, This would be a useful security feature, as users may forget someone has control to their machine leaving the machine exposed.

Tiled Buttons of Speed Dial and Most Frequently Used

As a VoIP user people expect to be able to visually see and set speed dial numbers and see them quickly around/near the number pad.

Please make an extension to the RHS of the dial pad for a) Speed Dial and b) Most Frequently Used so they can quickly call either Voice or Audio calls at a click. We have server code to set company wide favourites/contacts ...more »

Default printer linked to Set Location

I have noted that Set Location has the ability (perhaps through IP address) to detect my current location. It would be a very good enhancement, linked to this capability, to have the option of setting your default printer preference for a specific location. This would reduce the events where a print job is sent to a local or network printer that is not at your "current location", which is always annoying, embarassing ...more »

Missed call notifications for calls completed elsewhere

I think Lync Server is not correctly handling the SIP CANCEL message with cause=200. Scenario: calls are dual forked by the PBX, one goes to the SIP phone, the other one goes through the SIP trunk to Lync Server. If the call is answered by the phone, the PBX sends a CANCEL message to Lync with: Reason: SIP; cause=200; text="Call completed elsewhere". Lync Server also generates a SIP message 487, request terminated, with ...more »

Allow user to change photo on the fly

Allow user to keep a number of stored photos in their profile. Then allow user to change photos on the fly - even in the middle of a Lync conversation session. Useful example would be to show photo based on what project or responsibilitites you are working on that week/month. On the lighter side, you could click to change the photo MOOD for the day, or even for the current conversation. Example, while discussing ...more »
