    • 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.

      • Disable edit previous conversation message in Skype client

        Originally, previous converation message in Skype client could not be modified but a user can modify previous message in Korean language.
        Although it does not apply to conversation history but user experience is not good by this problem.

        In my customer's case, a bad guy modified conversation message in his Skype client and shared it with other people using desktop sharing. Nobody think coversation history has been modified because he show his current conversation window (not image, not email message).

        I request "Disable edit previous conversation message in Skype client for Korean language" like other lanuages, English for example.

        • The most annoying thing about Lync and Skype for Business is the disjointed windows between the contacts window and the messaging windows.

          The most annoying thing about Lync and Skype for Business is the disjointed windows between the contacts window and the messaging windows. My suggestion here is that maybe we could have both in a tabbed window or slide out from the main window.

          You should be able to do everything from the one screen

          Thank you and hopefully my suggestion will get some ground from other users too

          • Appointment Reminder

            I am into marketing and a lot of chats happen on Skype. Sometimes due to chatting with so many people, a promised chat or a skype appointment is missed. These missed appointments/chats, over a period of time, get pushed down and as a user I loose a lot of business sometimes. If we can implement a calendar on the chat windows to schedule a call or chat along with the subject, date and time then it would be great. Because a lot of publisher are not in the same time zone setting, an appointment though this calendar, should be in…

                  • Screen sharing bar needs to be made smaller

                    1) Screen sharing bar is too huge vertically spanning from 1 end of the screen to the other. As a result it takes up a lot of unwanted space and as a result it needs to be auto hidden. There is nothing on the bar other than the text showing 'Currently Sharing' and 2 buttons at the very other end of the bar.

                    So, the size of the bar should be reduced to a small round bar which will take up very less of space.

                    Also, this button should be moveable across the screen so that it is not necessary…

                    • Click to call feature for Skype for Business

                      If the phone number being formatted as tel:+12223334444 then I can click the number to call from any Office 365 applications. However, if just the phone number, click to call with SfB does not work.
                      Would like to highlight the number and have an option to call with SfB in any application.

                      • Skype For Business Awful Feedback

                        We did a company poll and Skype For Business was one of the topics surveyed. We received some very negative feedback. I spoke with your support department and the directed me to here. I will share some of our feedback.

                        Skype for Business often shows other members of my department as offline when they are in the office, and sometimes others do not receive messages I try to send through Skype. The previous system we had was much more reliable.

                        Skype for Business does not always work. It logs off and signs back on in the background a few times…

                          • Remove popup when mousing over contact status indicator

                            In the contacts list, next to each contact is an icon indicating their status. If you mouse-over this, it covers the contact with a popup panel containing buttons for IMing them, calling them, etc.

                            If I'm just quickly moving the mouse over to the contact list and then clicking it to bring it into focus (e.g. so that I can scroll through the contact list), that popup panel often appears spontaneously, and I end up clicking some button in it and calling the person by mistake.

                            Please either remove this popup entirely, or add a configuration setting for disabling it.

                              Please bring back the "Contact Time" / "Local Time" / "Time Zone" for Contacts feature for at least one-on-one chats for Skype for Desktop, as well as all other versions/platforms for the Skype client.

                              I - like *many* other users, as detailed below - was very unhappy to see this feature removed in recent versions of Skype for Desktop.

                              Now, before contacting someone, I end up having to check the user's profile, and…

                                I noticed the time stamp in missed Skype conversation is not the same with my current local time. I'm not alone and there are few users in my organization reported the similar issue. Do you have any solution for this issue?

                                  • Show resource accounts when choosing presenters in meeting options

                                    You cannot add Skype-enabled room resource accounts as presenters to scheduled Skype meetings in Outlook when choosing “Who’s a presenter” in Skype meeting options.

                                    With the proliferation of Surface Hub, Skype Room System and other Skype-enabled endpoints, it is important for planners of large or secured Skype meetings to be able to choose rooms as presenters in addition to individual users.

                                    • “fist and palm salute” emoji

                                      Could you please add a "fist and palm salute" emoji, just like: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-nPk7HcD_EEQ/ThMkS1i5kiI/AAAAAAAAFTg/H53kW4x4dgs/s320/salute-2.jpg.
                                      I am a Chinese, and in our culture, we can use fist and palm salute to express our thanks to another one, while I can not find a emoji to express my thanks to my collegues in Skype for Business. And every time I can only send a hands-shaking emoji, but I think this emoji is just express a Good co-operation.

                                      • Stop screen share automatically when the voice call ends.

                                        When I end a voice call where I've been sharing my screen I'd like the screen share to stop, or at least Skype to alert me that it is still sharing. There is a very serious risk of the previous caller seeing something sensitive or confidential because the screen share is still running.

                                        • Add a "status manager" user with the capability of changing their company's user's status and status notes

                                          Add a "status manager" user with the capability of changing their company's user's status and status notes similar to the Out+About software by intelligentconcepts.com We have users that never update their status note when they travel or call in sick but don't change their own status note to reflect that. Our front desk needs to be able to change those user's status notes so that the rest of the office can see it, and so that the front desk can respond to clients calling in.
