    1. Add ability to join external meetings without needing federation with the host's server.

      When joining an external meeting using the link provided for a webapp, IE/Lync/S4B will autosense the installed Lync client and try to launch it which will fail unless you have federation setup to allow the other domain. Adding ?sl=1 to the URL works but should not be necessary for a general user to have to do this. Nor is it a good look when sending invites to a customer to tell them they need to edit the hyperlink.
      There needs to be a way to join an external meeting without requiring federation when the Lync/S4B client is installed on a…

    6. Add annotation tools for desktop/application sharing

      During meetings users want to share a running application (let's say for 3D modelling) not a native file format for upload to a meeting. Participants want the ability to annotate over that live share. Currently the process of pausing the meeting while the sharer does a print screen, opens a white board, then pastes the capture to be drawn on is painful and frustrating. I noted on the what's next Skype concept video the participants annotate on a live video feed. This functionality is really needed now!

    7. Remove the need to click on "Hide Stage" to go back to larger view when no one is presenting

      Remove the need to click on "Hide Stage" to go back to larger view when no one is presenting. This is especially useful when you have a meeting in meeting rooms. People are supposed to be just sit in and look at the screen of presentation and if nothing is presented, should go back to expand video to normal size. This space shouldn't be taken up by the large and useless hide stage screen and requires someone to stand up and click to close it. This hide stage serves no purpose in my opinion.

    8. Spotlight lock experience

      When the Spotlight is locked on to one participant, the participant in the spotlight should continue to see the gallery view instead of only seeing themselves. Only the remaining participants should see the locked video on the spotlight participant/presenter.

    11. Better use of monitor real estate for viewing shared content for SfB

      Better layout or a full screen content option when sharing and viewing content in SFB. There is currently more SfB window than content. It can be similar to the Surface Hub interface.
