    2. Skype For Business 16.28 for Mac does not make a TCC prompt for microphone access. All versions should prompt for mic Access.

      Current version does not prompt for Mic Access in 10.14 leaving all users unable to use their mic. All versions should prompt for TCC access to the mic.

    4. Disable Library Validation in Skype for Business for macOS

      In macOS 10.14 and with Skype for Business 2016, it is no longer possible to use virtual cameras such as ManyCam Virtual Webcam.

      Disabling Library Validation in Skype for Business for macOS will allow users to use virtual cameras.

    8. Just make the Mac version have the same options as the Windows

      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.

    9. SFB to prompt for screen sharing permission on Catalina or show a message on doing the manual steps

      Whenever I share my screen using Skype for business(SFB), only SFB's window and mac background image is visible nothing else and this problem can be resolved by adding screen sharing permission to SFB manually on System preferences.

      It'll be good if SFB prompts for some kind of permission from user to do this or show a message or notification about this manual steps to user so that this problem can be avoided

    10. Skype keeps taking me off of Do Not Disturb

      Skype for Mac keeps automatically changing my status. It can do this between any two statuses, but the most annoying is when it takes me off of Do Not Disturb and makes me available. If I put myself on DnD, it is for a reason. I do not want to be disturbed. It's infuriating.

    11. To add contacts by using iPad or Mac while communicating with Skype for Consumer

      Skype for Consumer doesn’t work properly when adding contacts as our environment uses Non-Windows devices, such as iPad or Mac.
      So that I would request you to provide a feature to add Skype contacts by using iPad or Mac OS.

    14. SFB 16.28.111 is crashing with Catalina beta 7

      SFB 16.28.111 solved the crash in Catalina beta 6 when sharing the screen. But with Catalina beta 7, it is the messages which make SFB crash.

    15. Skype for Business STILL crashing in latest 16.28.111 release

      You really have too sort out this crashing issue. Not only is it appallingly unprofessional for it to do so in the middle of calls, but it is now doing it just minutes or seconds after it being opened. I can't even 'report and issue' without it crashing. Skype for Business has long not been fit for purpose and this is just the latest nonsense.

    16. There is a disconnect between time tracking for away status when logged into both desktop and IOS App

      While logged onto both desktop and IOS app, if the "away" status appears, it displays the phone one instead of the desktop status. Even though the desktop is the one being utilized while the mobile app isn't.
      For example: when I am away for 10 minutes on Desktop, others are seeing away for 3 hours on mobile.
      This is not only misleading for team members but concerning for the managers of that employee because they get the wrong impression that the employee is not at work!

    17. Enhance idle/away settings for Mac

      Please allow Skype for Business for Mac users to adjust the amount of time it takes for the status to appear as "away" when the computer is idle, or to turn that feature off completely. Sometimes, my job entails reviewing hard copy documents. I may not be using my computer, but I am still working (and available). I would like to be able to adjust this setting or turn it off. It looks like this is an option for PC. Why not Mac?

    18. Mac audio

      Audio device should follow the system default. At the moment Skype ‘pops up’ when new devices are detected but Mac OS is much better at selected the right default device, for example when moving between docking stations.

    19. Fix MacOS Mojave support on microphone access

      Fix MacOS Mojave support.

      Currently SfB client on MacOS Mojave doesn't always request the access to microphone correctly, which prevents SfB from using audio properly. Now this can be fixed only by manually hacking the TCC.file.

    20. Please reduce load time and resource hogging for SfB O356 for Mac client

      Please address the current load requirements for Skype for Business on Mac. The current versions of either Office Insider Slow or Fast (16.28.72) requires up to 8GB memory during startup and it repeatedly crashes or requires me to force quit the app after 5 or more minutes. During background operation it hoggs 1.8 GB and has the most significant Energy impact of all my Office 365 apps.
      Alternatively, please come forward and honestly state that Mac users need to move over to Teams asap because none of the issues above occur using that app. Sadly our organization requires Skype for…
