    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/ 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.

                • 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

                    • Adding (finger) emoticon to the default reaction list

                      Please add the (finger) emoticon to the default reactions list for a message.

                      I communicate a lot with my ex-coworkers. I have never seen someone using the (Porg surprised) or the (Dancing gran) emoticon, however the (finger) emoticon is always pops up in a chat. This could be a perfect reaction for downvoting an idea or when someone asks for a raise.

                      I'm sure Skype have statistics about how often default chat reactions are used. I strongly believe it would add value to the application to replace the least used emoticon with (finger) one!

                      Thanks in advance for taking my…

                                It's confusing and misleading to include Skype for Business in MS Office 2016 Professional when it's not actually usable unless you have Office 365.

                                • Received Files - separate directory for every unique sender

                                  As of now , when you receive a file on skype it get saved in the location as configured. Default location in windows is C:\Users\***\Documents\My Received Files . When you have multiple senders and as content inside the configured location grows, it becomes quite difficult to search files sent by various users. It would be nice to save received files in a folder (same as sender user-name) under the configured location. So if you have five sender , you will have five folders created dynamically while saving the file. Later on, it would be easy for the receiver to keep…

                                  • Changing Skype Shortcuts / getting the chance of customizing

                                    Could you please tell, how to change the "Ctrl + Alt + Shift + 3" shortcut?

                                    Usecase:
                                    0. Skype window is just lost in some of my many monitors.
                                    1. I often just want to get the focus to its search field,
                                    2. and write immediately the first letters of a searched person,
                                    3. then push enter,
                                    4. and write already the personal message, whatever...

                                    Background: In Lync 2010 i used to have an easy one: WIN+Q

                                    Thanks,
                                    Tamas

                                        • Feature to root / divert calls to an assigned group of users.

                                          The goal is to divert calls to an assigned bunch of users/phone numbers, like a defined helpdesk group of technicians.

                                          The best solution will be to keep a designed direct phone number to users plus the possibility to get calls from the one at the "main front desk".

                                          So instead of using a 3rd party solution like Avaya-x One Agent and having 2 applications running at the same time we could get both solutions integrated within Skype for Business.

                                          This will be a great service improvement and will be widely accepted and acquired by many companies.
