  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • Show me as away when my computer has been idle for this many minutes

        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.

          • Multiple account support

            As a consultant, I need to use Skype for Business in multiple networks at the same time. Both in the company where I am employed, and also at the company where I currently have an assignment.

            Federalization is not sufficient, as people in both locations need to be able to locate and contact me with the "local" network address.

              • The icon in the Dock should show my availability status

                The icon in the Dock should show my current availability status. I have to open Skype or click the icon to see what my current status is. The colour of the icon could change according to current availability or a coloured circle could be added.

                • Allow setting fixed or static Conference ID on a per user basis

                  Allow setting fixed or static Conference ID on a per user basis.
                  Either make it a selection box in the Admin Portal UI or via PowerShell.
                  Some users like having only one ID to distribute to meeting attendees.
                  Easier for them to schedule meetings in advance or for impromptu if the ID is constant.

                  • Caller ID for Call Queues

                    Call Routing's Call Queues aren't displaying Caller ID. They're currently displaying the name of the queue on mobile and a random string on desktop. Please correct this to display Caller ID Name (or number if name is unavailable).

                    • 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.

                          • Make the MAC version the same as Windows as feature equals

                            When you support to platforms, the versions need to be the same feature set for people who have to deal with both platforms. The Mac versions of all MS software are not even close to their Windows versions.

                              Need a way to view conversation history from within the Skype Business for Mac, OR add every conversation to conversation history in Exchange. It was noted that this was completed previously, but it has not been completed as it does not function at all.

                                • Get meeting infos of a started meeting (Lync had this)

                                  Right now I have to schedule a meeting in Outlook to retrieve the meeting infos (dial-in numbers and session link).

                                  When I use "Meet now" because I want to do a spontaneous and wait in the meeting I cannot provide those meeting infos to others for dial-in.

                                  • 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.

                                      • We're having trouble connecting to the server. If this continues, please contact your support team.

                                        Yeah, this error is simply insane. I get like ~40 per day with a machine that's connected to the internet. Can't use the app unless I "OK" every... single... one... (or force quit and restart app.) ACK! Coming back from an hour lunch with 2 or 3 of these errors, on a machine that's not sleeping, nor has lack of communication with the server.

                                        • 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!
