  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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • Conversation History

                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.

                • 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!

                    • Sync Calendar Availability to Status

                      The app shows my meetings in the Calendar section, since I use Outlook for my calendar. But the status stays as "available" even when there is a calendar event showing for the time. In Lync and in Skype for Windows, status changes to "in a meeting" when there is a calendar event at that time.

                                • 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.

                                    • Allow the speakers for call notification, but headphones for audio

                                      At present you can select the audio output sources "Speakers" and set that to a headset, but then the incoming call alert is also played on the speakers. It would be great to keep the call audio on the headphones, but use the Mac speakers to alert you to the call. Otherwise I think I'm going to miss calls!

                                      • Ability for creating and changing groups

                                        Option to create, edit groups is greyed out. Would like to see it enabled.
