    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.

    2. 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.

    3. 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.

    5. 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.

    6. 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.

    9. 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.

    10. 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!

    11. 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…

    13. 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?

    14. 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?

    16. Make Skype for Business Mac Work just like the Windows Edition

      I cannot see my entire contact list (maintained in Outlook for Mac) and therefore, cannot initiate a Skype for Business chat with anyone in my contacts.

      I was able to do this with a Skype for Business on Windows.

    18. 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…

    19. 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

    20. 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!
