    1. Finding people you know on Skype.

      Skype for Business needs to be able to scan your outlook contact list or the email addresses that you deal with, to help you locate people you deal with, using Skype for Business.

    3. Status doesn't work well

      On my computer, Skype is linked to Outlook 2013.
      Sometimes the automatic status doesn't work : my status is occupied although there is only meetings with available status in my outlook calendar.

    4. My display picture will not display, even though I have it set to "show".

      This isn't really an idea, more of a complaint unfortunately. I cannot see my display picture, even though it is set to "show". Some contacts can see my picture, some cannot. I've tried uploading a different one but this does not show either.

    6. Option to not show presence set in the client or at least have an option of show as offline

      Option to not show presence set in the client or at least have an option of show as offline. This should override the administrator chosen setting in the server or on the cloud. Instead of a all or nothing setting for the entire domain, you have no option to customize this for individuals.

    7. Show status and location together, even when searching or with conversation window opened

      First of all, it's hard to find people with SfB, because the searching engine only works with first and second name.
      When looking at the groups view, you can see contact's Locations or Status. We should be able to see both.
      When you search for a contact, it's location/status won't be shown. It should.

    10. Invoking a call is not intuitive

      When clicking on the icon "telephone handset" to invoke a call, a popup appears. Unfortunately, I did not realize that one has to click on the text "Skype Anruf" (probably "Skype Call" in English) to actually invoke the call. I thought that this is just a hint with the description of what the button does, and so I wondered why I cannot call anybody. I then needed help from the support to tell me that I have to click on the text "Skype Anruf" in the Popup. I think that this is really not intuitive as it looks like a…

      Travel through time.
      Backwards, Forward.
      Either one so we don't get to confused.

    18. Show better "traditional" voice switch video feed instead of galery view

      When you are in conversation with multiple other participants, you don't really need to concentrate on ALL participants at once. You only need to view the person that is talking. Traditional videoconferencing MCUs achieved this through voice switching participants, showing that primary speaker as the largest view, with other as smaller feeds.

      There is sooooo much wasted screen real estate in Galery view, and it makes no sense.
