  1. 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…

    • 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.

      • Can't do business when features don't match on Skype for Business

        Is it possible for you to build your software with the same features for all platforms? Skype for Business for Mac getting the same features as your PC product? We have over 200 Macs and yes, they do business too. And need to use SFB for full business with outside contacts. Kind of a basic thing to leave out. Perhaps we shouldn't have standardized on SFB for communications.

          • 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).

                • Allow to manage the size of the preview window in Skype Room System v2 Single Monitor Mode

                  The local preview window in Skype Room System is way too small in a Single Monitor configuration. It looks as if the pixel size is set, so that it would be larger on a smaller monitor. we run a 75" monitor and it is mostly unusable. I could not find anything in setup or documentation, or XML settings to affect the preview window size/location.

                    • Reporting - Ability to pull PSTN Usage Details (inbound/outbound) from a reporting platform

                      Ability to pull PSTN Usage Details (inbound/outbound) from a reporting platform such as PowerBI. This used to be available using oData which allowed 3rd party vendor or us to get detailed call data which allows us to provide call reports to our sales team without performing manual downloads.

                      • Tell participants they are muted when they join meetings

                        Participants sometimes join meetings and assume they have audio problems because no one can hear them. After some troubleshooting, they figure out Skype muted them when they joined. The UI should prominently display a message telling the user they are muted.

                          • Turn off email notification for missed call

                            It seems that when you are using a completely hosted office 365/ cloud PBX/ Skype for Business with PSTN conferencing that there is no option to disable the email notification for missed calls. Most users do not want their inbox flooded with missed call notifications and the rules of outlook will not work as they are notifications and not emails. The suggestion is to have on a user-by-user basis the ability to disable these messages.

                            • 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…

                                    • With Firewall On Stop Asking to Allow Connectivity when joining a meeting.

                                      Skype is allowed on the Mac firewall but the users are still prompted every time they join a meeting to allow connectivity. This is annoying and should be fixed.

                                      • Offer option to always use the SfB App instead of the web and stop prompting to allow a meeting to open in SfB

                                        When connecting to a meeting, Safari launches then you are prompted to Allow SfB to connect to the meeting. Add a Preference option to make this the default option and stop prompting.
