  1. Large screen real estate...

    The most recent update (16.9.18) has enlarged the 'minimum window' size significantly. Please make the client take up less space onscreen.

    Further, too many functions take up huge amounts of space and provide no useful benefit. The window opened during a telephone call is huge and unwarranted considering all of the controls offered (and the several lost from Lync) would fit into about 1/5 the space.

    • Add phone number contacts with name

      Currently, Skype for Business is lacking flexibility in its contact list, such as not offering a way of saving a phone number as a contact with a name.

      While it does allow for the number to be stored as just a number under "Other contacts", there is currently no way to add a name to it. This makes it impractical and results in an unorderly list of phone numbers where it's unclear to which person they belong. Especially this is crucial when an organisation relies a lot on external communication, like mine.

      The Skype for Bussiness' contact list is too…

      • Ability to Schedule Meetings WITHOUT Outlook

        I do not use Outlook. At present though, the only way to schedule a Skype meeting is through Outlook, which is quite frustrating.

        It would be great if I could either 1.) schedule meetings in the app itself, or 2.) be able to copy a meeting link into a standard meeting invite in any calendar application (Calendar, Fantastical2, etc.) and have it just work.

          • Reintroduce Contacts which disappeared in 16.11.115

            After an upgrade to version 16.11.115, my contacts list is empty, and all options related to it are greyed out in the menu.

            Please contacts are rather important in Skype - reintroduce them...

              • Sync messages and contacts between devices, fix connection issues and random freezing of app

                The app constantly throws connection errors, freezes up and randomly scrolls to the top of the chat window. Multiple chat threads are opened for the same user constantly, messages will show up on one device but not on the other. There are so many issues I honestly cannot believe this was released. These are really basic issues. I keep getting updates for this app and wondering what is being updated. Please take care of basic functionality! Until then I will keep using Slack instead.

                • Being able to see the free/busy status for the person you are chatting with

                  Visibility of a person's free/busy time would make it easier to find available times to talk to them, in a similar way you setup meetings.

                  • SFB for Mac Issues

                    We've had some recent connection issues with SFB for Mac in the last couple weeks. SFB in our environment seems to be linked to DNS/Kerberos, so in testing, I set my computer to our network time server, and now Skype Opens and when I'm off the network prompts properly for the Exchange/Office 365 login. However, I cannot connect to my Exchange meetings, there is a sign-in dialog, but it just doesn't connect. Other things I have tried: disable ipv6 and kill the kerberos ticket. At least the program is will open now and I do everything but see my meetings.

                    • Make Skype for Business Mac Work just like the Windows Edition

                      I cannot see my entire contact list (maintained in Outlook for Mac) and therefore, cannot initiate a Skype for Business chat with anyone in my contacts.

                      I was able to do this with a Skype for Business on Windows.

                        Cascade messages. Sometimes you don't realize a new text popped up over another, and the next thing you know you are replying to the wrong text.

                        • Make Skype for Business as good and easy as Zoom

                          Why can't you try and make Skype for Business Mac as easy to use as Zoom? For example, it takes a really long time for the viewer to see my screen when I share it, and it's also impossible to share my screen and keep my camera broadcasting so they can see me and I can see them.

                              • Allow sounds for incoming IMs through speakers while USB headset is connected.

                                SfB on a Mac can be configured now to allow for incoming calls to ring through the Mac speakers while a headset is connected, but incoming message sounds still only play through the headset. IMs are easily missed if the user is not actively on a call using the headset.

                                • Make it work! Nothing but connection problems, making SfB unusable, while Skype works just fine with same users

                                  I just cant understand how this is possible, but when Mac users in our company try to use SfB for meetings, the call quality is so bad that they cannot hold a meeting, also constant problems with other people being unable to join meetings etc.

                                  Then they try the "norma" Skype, and everything work like a charm. How is this possible? Shouldn't business version be more realiable than the free commercial one?

                                  • To make it more stable

                                    Skype for business on MAC is very unstable platform . Few things constantly happening - at least last half a year :
                                    - Skype sometimes creating separate threads in Conversation with the same person.
                                    - Message delivery is questionable . many times Skype seems to be online, although it complains that it could not deliver the message to the peer
                                    - Calls - not sure if its a Skype problem , but at least for a month or two I am not able to establish the call - after person pick up the call , call is always immediately dropping…

                                    • Emoticon

                                      When sending Emoticon to other Skype for business (windows) they are not getting icons, rather message in code e.g. (cool).

                                      • 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.

                                        • Need the ability to actually delete conversation history. Its horribly slow on Mac with even a fairly small history (beachballs constantly)

                                          Need the ability to actually delete conversation history. Its horribly slow on Mac with even a fairly small history (beachballs constantly).

                                          Conversations to the same person seems to randomly start with either an existing conversation or a new one
