      • Office 365 Group Voice mailbox

        When creating a Call Queue or Auto Attendant setup, set an option/drop down to allow the voice mails to route to an Office 365 Group, so that members of the group will be able to access the voice mails. Instead of dedicating a user (therefore spending more license) for all of the voice mails would go to.

        • Skype Conversation History - Cleanup

          “Skype Conversation History” builds up over time with duplicates and partial messages in Outlook. And the built-in “Clean Up” function doesn’t do anything with this folder.
          After some online search, I found this link which claims to do the exact same thing. I wish Microsoft included this as a built-in feature.

          • Disable Consult button by user policy

            Make it possible to disable the consult button by a user policy.
            Consult button uses a cold transfer, some companies only want to use warm transfers.

            Or make it possible to change the behaviour of the transfer (warm/cold)

            • status logs

              Enable Admins to export status history logs for all users. This can be used for tracking purposes as to what the status of the user/s was for the day. It would be better if the IP Address will also be included in the logs so that it can be determined where the user logged in to his account.

              • Support for Apple AirPods

                Skype does not support AirPods on Windows or Mac effectively. Users are reportedly either unable to speak to the other caller but can hear them, or unable hear the other callers but speak to them.

                • Attendance list for Skype Meetings/Trainings

                  The ability to download a list of participants that attended a Skype meeting or training (Including external participants) would be VERY MUCH appreciated. Using Skype for business for training is difficult without this option available (besides Ctrl+N, which only includes the internal participants and lists external participants as 'Guest'')

                    • View more than five video meeting participants simultaneously

                      Currently the max number of participants shown in the gallery in a Skype video meeting is five. Increase this number so that a larger group can see video of all participants. We regularly have meetings with 10-20 participants in Skype video. Would be great to see everyone simultaneously.

                      • Skype for business meeting invitation settings - Add option for multiple Logo URLs and legal URLs based on business division

                        Skype for business meeting invitation settings. We want to know if the Logo URL, Help URL, Legal URL settings can be changed per business division within a company that owns a tenant. Possibly do this by the primary SMTP address or the SIP address.

                        • Skype for business/ skype broadcast - NDI

                          Microsoft recently included NDI in recent update to the consumer skype version. Is there any plan to bring this to the skype for business client. As an E5 customer, Using this in conjunction with Skype broadcasts would be fantastic. To be able to use mutilple inputs with skype broadcasts via the skype for business client would be brilliant.

                              Come on people please, we have 2018, this is so sad!
                              Thanks for accepting us.

                                  My coworkers keep stating features on windows that I cannot find in the Mac. You should be able to change all the same settings as window and see all the same functions. It is time to make them the same.

                                  • Voicemail - Dial out from Voicemail to Operator

                                    It would be nice to dial 0 at a users voicemail and be transferred to the operator. This way, if the caller does not want to leave a voicemail but speak to a live person, they can simple back out by pressing 0 instead of dialing back in. Most phone systems have a similar feature, would be great for Skype for Business to adopt this.

                                          • Ability to reuse poll from meeting to meeting (import/export)

                                            Ability to reuse poll from meeting to meeting (a kind opf export/import) so that I don't have to retype my poll each time.
                                            For instance I'd like to conclude my presentation by a feed back poll (ROTI like) Would be great to have it stored somewhere and being able to call it from any meeting
