    1. 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.

    2. Allow shutting off of ALL sounds.

      I have all sounds shut off, yet it still plays a sound when logging in. If I am in a meeting and log into the app, I don't need it blasting a sound throughout the room. Please respect the user's settings.

    3. Automatically switch to AirPods

      When I connect my AirPods to the Mac using the Sound menubar item, I want Skype to automatically switch to using them.

      Sometimes Skype asks to switch to the Thunderbolt display, and I think even one time I saw it ask to switch to the AirPods, but it is completely unreliable.

      Expected:
      Selecting AirPods in Sound menu immediately switches over to them in Skype

      Actual:
      I have to go into Skype Preferences to change to AirPods to immediately have them available in a call starting seconds after I connect my AirPods.

      In addition, if I'm in a call on the…

    4. Dark Mode Theme

      Should have a couple of theme options, in particular a dark mode to be consistent with the Mac.

    7. 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.

    8. 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.

    9. Mark all conversations as read

      On the conversations pane (the speech bubble) I found where all the missed conversations and old conversations went, which explained the "42" counter on the dock icon....

      However, to clear that dock icon counter required me - for each conversation - to double click on the conversation to open it, then do a CMD-W to close the window, thus marking it read. Ideally I'd want to go into the speech bubble pane, select all conversations, and mark as read so the counter is cleared! Or just have a "Clear counter" option on the dock icon maybe?

    10. Allow sounds for incoming IMs through speakers while USB headset is connected.

      SfB on a Mac can be configured now to allow for incoming calls to ring through the Mac speakers while a headset is connected, but incoming message sounds still only play through the headset. IMs are easily missed if the user is not actively on a call using the headset.

    11. Chat Notifications

      Very happy that chat was included in this release. I know this is a beta version, but it would be nice to get a better notification of an incoming chat request. Currently the app icon just gets a red badge alert and I don't always notice it. The older Lync version "bounced" when a new message request came through, which was more noticeable.

      Thanks for the new release!

    12. 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!

    13. Move "Your microphone is muted" out of the way for screensharing

      Screen should not be blocked by the message "Your microphone is muted".

      When watching a presentation sharing slides or their screen, having the message "Your microphone is muted" in the middle of the window occludes part of the screen that I am trying to view.

      Suggest making this message in a location that does not block screen sharing.

    14. 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.

    15. Allow Call Forwarding while outside work hours

      I would like to have my calls forwarded to my cell phone, but only outside of work hours.

      Right now in Preferences > Calls > "Turn on call forwarding" only has the following options:
      All the time
      During Outlook work hours

      Please add the following option:
      "Outside of Outlook work hours"

    16. Recording capabilities

      When our end users compare their Lync 2011 client with SfB for PC, one of the most asked for capabilities is recording. Will this feature be a part of RTM?

    17. Automatically set to "Do Not Disturb" when sharing and back off when done

      It would be very nice if when started to share your desktop the system went into "Do not Disturb" mode to prevent notifications from popping up while sharing. And then turn it off once done. Similar to the feature provided in the Windows version

    18. History

      I'd like to see all of my conversation history when I open up a chat with someone I've chatted with before, uh like Google Hangouts. Conversation history also needs to be searchable.

    20. Skype status set automatically

      When I have a meeting scheduled, my status in Skype doesn't change automatically during the meeting. This used to work in Lync and works in Skype for Windows.
