    1. 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

    2. 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…

    3. 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.

    4. Adjusting the resolution of screen share

      I often had to adjust my desktop display resolution because of a) my users are on windows and resolution is uncomfortable or b) sharing eats up most of my network bandwidth and audio quality becomes poor.

      For a) it would be nice to have manual controls to adjust resolution within skype app
      b) adaptively adjust the screen share quality based on network speed. Give priority to audio channel.

    5. 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…

    6. Presence based on Calendar availability

    8. 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.

    11. 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.

    12. Send a file

      Would be nice to be able to send files. I couldn't find an option for this in the menus, and tried dragging and dropping a file into the window, but nothing worked. A must have feature for my company.

    13. dark theme

      As a developer, I use dark IDE themes throughout my desk environment. Would you consider having an inverted color theme to not have such blinding white for my Skype for Business block on my second monitor?

    14. The new "Current Call" floating window... not good :-(

      At first when the Current Call window appeared I thought "omg, this is genius - I can finally have easy access to the controls". Unfortunately, what happens in practice is that each time I CMD-TAB between apps (any two apps; it doesn't have to include SfB), the Current Call window puts itself back on top (ok fair enough), but - and this is the problem - GRABS FOCUS. This is tremendously annoying. I'm flicking between a web page and a terminal window so I can type commands based on information on the web page, and each time I flip back…

    15. Invite people to Skype

      I have a brilliant idea! Why not Skype for Business Mac would work like Skype for Windows?

      Adding external contacts would be awesome!

    16. 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!

    18. presence

      Offer the option to change the presence Status on Skype for Business on Macs ("I want everyone to be able to see my presence" radio box). As of today, I need to run a Windows machine and run S4B for Windows, to be able to change this option.
