    1. 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.

      • 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.

              • Skype for business meetings from MAC client support VBSS content sharing when Audio/video sessions are not joined.

                VBSS does not seem to function correctly with polycom room systems if you do not join the audio/video on a mac client. it gets laggy and unworkable

                • Enable DTMF Relay for AVMCU Calls

                  DTMF works fine in 1:1 calls. When a call escalates to a conference call on the AVMCU, DTMF tones no longer relay. This means that if two people are on the phone and add a third party that has an IVR menu, the DTMF tones do not relay. Please add support for this functionality in some capacity.

                  • 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.

                            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.

                            • Keep the conversation history with one person in one conversation, stop creating different conversations while talking to the same person.

                              Keep the whole conversation with the same person in one window, stop creating 100 different ones everytime a new conversation starts. It's so annoying to see 100 different chat conversations with the same person throughout the day.

                              • A video call via 4G line network to be available when a guest user joins in a conference

                                Office 365 users can initiate Skype video call and share contents by changing the app setting when singing in to a conference by using Skype for Business app for iOS connected via 4G line network. On the other hand, guest users are not able to change their app setting when they are signing in to Skype for Business app for iOS as an anonymous user, so they are unable to do video call unless using Wi-Fi connection.

                                • Open Office, we go crazy people talking very loud when using Skype/SfB and Headset. A blinking red button when loudness is over average.

                                  Open Office, we go crazy people talking very loud when using Skype/SfB and Headset. Because they don't hear themselves.
                                  A blinking red button in Skype/Skype for Business would be nice when the Headset Microphone is detecting that the voice loudness is above average.
                                  This would save the life of people working in a open space office.

                                        I'd like to change the privacy relationship of several teammembers so that they can contact me even when I am on «do not disturb». Works on windows, but not on a mac.

                                          In the middle of a 2 way conversation you get the message "We couldn't send this message" but the person answers back so obviously it was delivered.

                                          • Allow Users to Change Default Audio Conferencing Number Displayed in Meeting Invites

                                            Other conferencing platforms (WebEx, Zoom, etc.) allow the user to log in and change the default Audio Conferencing number that appears in their Skype for Business meeting invites.

                                            Skype for Business Online should offer this feature in the same UI that allows the user to change their PIN and view other Skype settings.

                                            Currently, this is something an administrator has to do via the Admin Portal or via PowerShell. There NEEDS to be a way to delegate this to users!
