    • Send a file

      Would be nice to be able to send files. I couldn't find an option for this in the menus, and tried dragging and dropping a file into the window, but nothing worked. A must have feature for my company.

      • Paste Images

        I often need to send a screen shot or image to my chat partner to explain what I am seeing or how they should do something. I have a screen capture tool but can't paste the shots into a chat. An integrated capture tool isn't needed, just need to be able to paste.

        • Would like the option to merge conversation from the same user.

          Under file>preferences there is nothing to allow for the option of combining or merging conversations. I often have multiple chats with the same person through the day, but they also often close the chat window that they have on their end. They use a Windows box for their Skype.

            • Automatically set to "Do Not Disturb" when sharing and back off when done

              It would be very nice if when started to share your desktop the system went into "Do not Disturb" mode to prevent notifications from popping up while sharing. And then turn it off once done. Similar to the feature provided in the Windows version

              • Recording capabilities

                When our end users compare their Lync 2011 client with SfB for PC, one of the most asked for capabilities is recording. Will this feature be a part of RTM?

                • Chat Notifications

                  Very happy that chat was included in this release. I know this is a beta version, but it would be nice to get a better notification of an incoming chat request. Currently the app icon just gets a red badge alert and I don't always notice it. The older Lync version "bounced" when a new message request came through, which was more noticeable.

                  Thanks for the new release!

                  • Presence based on Calendar availability

                    Presence should be the same as in the Windows S4B client
                    Busy, in a Meeting, etc.

                    • Screen Sharing Without a Call

                      Would really like to be able to share my screen with someone without establishing a call via Skype - like can be done in Windows. I'm usually on the phone talking with someone when the need to screen share comes up, so switching or establishing a second call is kind of overkill.

                      • Cannot send file using drag and drop

                        In Lync 2011, you could drag a file into the chat window and have it send. All it does now is paste the path into the chat window.

                        • Allow to drop from audio while staying in the meeting

                          On Windows, if you press the red button, it hangs up the audio line, but keeps you in the meeting (chat and presentation). On SfB Mac, it exits the meeting completely. It would be nice if the Mac version would mimic the Windows version. This is very useful if the audio is taken care of by a stand-alone device.

                            Add the option Show me as Away when my computer has been idle for this many minutes. This option already exists for the windows version. Currently the default on the Mac version is 5 min and would like to be able to adjust that.

                                • Need to be able to send attachments. Used to be an option in Lync for Mac

                                  Seems like a simple, obvious request but no option. Need to be able to send attachments also maybe copy-and-paste screen captures/files.

                                  • I would like my computer's Speaker to Ring when my blue tooth headset is connected

                                    Currently if my Jabra headset is selected as the Audio device that is the only thing that rings. I would like to have the ability to have my Mac's speaker ring as well so I know it when I don't have the headset on.
                                    Thanks!

                                      • Notifications when Skype is hidden

                                        I'd like to get notifications for new messages anytime I receive a message and the Skype window is hidden. Currently if Skype for business is hidden, and the chat I currently have selected is responded to I don't get a notification.
