          • Atrocious performance, please fix

            For the first few hours this application works as expected, but as conversation histories with contacts grow larger, replying, starting conversations and sometimes even typing is painfully slow... and this is just a chat application!

            Seriously MS, put some resources into this.

                • 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.

                  • Add a preference toggle to disable emoji

                    Add a toggle in preferences to disable automatic emoji. It is impossible to share accurate technical strings of text for copy/paste in the current release if they have been auto translated to emoji. This missing feature sent me back to Lync, so it gets all 3 of my votes.

                      • Fix Connectivity

                        Since the last update or 2 connectivity is horrendous. Constantly losing connection and often have to kill the app to restart. If this was not our enterprise std would have dumped it a while ago.

                        • Invalid Missed Conversation Notifications

                          Skype constantly says I've missed messages that I've already read but just didn't click on the message box. It should be able to detect the different between the user just not clicking on the message versus being actually away from the machine and missing the message. I get a lot of junk emails generated as a result of missing "thanks" and "see ya" type messages, so at the very least making an option to turn off this functionality would be helpful.

                          • Remove the HDMI pop-up

                            Hi guys,

                            I've started getting a "switch to HDMI" pop-up, really often, while using Skype for business.

                            Could we make the pop-up optional?

                            Many Thanks,

                            ~Robert.

                            • Login automatically Delay for wifi (or whatever makes it fail)

                              On my Mac Book Pro whenever I restart or close it to move to another room, when opening back up, Skype attempts to login and fails. I don't know why exactly. If I notice it, cancel and try 15-20 seconds later, it works fine. It does not retry successfully itself.
                              I am thinking that the wifi connection is not up yet and that confuses the login. I see the wifi systray spinning for a few seconds.
                              As a result, I am almost never online. If it could delay 15-20 seconds, I think it would work.
                              This would make my co-workers…

                                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.

                                • Selectable Priority Audio device

                                  Allow for an option to set priority for available audio devices. And mark some devices as ineligible.

                                  I find myself having to make sure the mic and Speakers are set as desired before starting any audio functions.

                                  IE:
                                  External Plantronics USB Headset
                                  Bluetooth Headset
                                  Headphones
                                  System Speakers/Mic

                                  NEVER Mic/Speakers. but YES to Ringing/Notification - USB Audio Device (system default for all other sounds)

                                  NEVER - MonitorA Digital Audio

                                  • High CPU Usage

                                    Skype for Business (Mac) is eating an enourmous amount of CPU at idle (17.8-50%+) and even more when in a call. I cannot deploy this to laptop users in my department as their fans stay on at all times. Please optimize. On a side note, thanks for the file transfer ability!

                                    • Presence based on Calendar availability

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

                                      • 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.

                                          • Integrate schedule meetings with Mac OS calendar app

                                            Most of the users use the standard Mac OS calendar app and not Outlook. However, Skype for Business only integrates Outlook when scheduling a meeting. It would be great to schedule a meeting and integrate this functionality with the standard calendar app instead of buying Outlook to do so.
