Manage On-prem Phone Numbers
Now that we have the ability to use Direct Routing to assign an "OnpremPhoneNumber" to a Resource Account via the Set-CsOnlineApplicationInstance cmdlet, it would be nice to take it a step or few further.
I think it would be nice to be able to enter a list/range of "On Prem Phone Numbers" into Skype/Teams.
1, we would be aware of the full range.
2, we can pick from a list when assigning a phone number in the TAC. 3, we can see what unused numbers there are either in the SBAC or using PowerShell. Or the next available.
4, we can manage number attributes and change the InventoryType which controls whether the number is a Subscriber (user number) or a Service number (for Resource Accounts, Auto Attendants and Call Queues).
We could also expand that further and have something similar to Unassigned Numbers and Announcement Services like we have in Skype for Business Server. This could be another UserVoice request.
Something like this?
I've heard rumor that MS is considering adding a number management function in the near future.

Sounds like a good improvement.
