    1. Let skype work on Linux and Firefox! Actually, it does not! Year after year, skype works worse and worse!

      skype for linux doesn't work on my debian linux PC.
      skype web doesn't work on Firefox: why?
      Year after year, skype works worse and worse!

      • Need a new icon for asking folks in group to go to lunch

        Like tea and coffee icons there should be dinner and snacks options .Snacks are more useful than pizza or banana or any other emonji

            • Bring back support for Skype Web on Linux, Firefox and non-Chrome browser

              It's foolish to support MS Edge & Chrome only because Skype is already on Windows 10 by default AND not everyone likes Chrome.

              • display skype meetings phone numbers as hyperlink, not plain text.

                Skype meetings created in OWA (and newer outlook client versions - eg. 2016) must display phone numbers as hyperlink, not plain text, as they seem currently to do. This is a change from earlier versions of outlook/owa, which displayed correctly. Staff find the plain text format very confusing (phone num,,access code#)

                • Allow outlook calendar to schedule reoccurring appointments on random dates. This should be as easy as copy and paste.

                  Allow outlook calendar to schedule reoccurring appointments on random dates. Basketball games always occure on Sundays at 1:00pm but not every Sunday and not on a fixed schedule for example. Should be as easy as copy and paste.

                  • Allow meeting attendees "outside my organization" or Everyone (No Restrictions) to be configured as Presenters before sending meeting invite

                    Allow meeting attendees "outside my organization" or Everyone (No Restrictions) to be configured as Presenters before sending meeting invite. Currently you can only make attendees outside my organization Presenters after you launch the meeting. It would be helpful to allow that option as a pre-configured option when setting up the meeting.

                      • Skype for business web app on mac should request permission to access microphone

                        Skype for business web app on mac should request permission to access microphone.
                        Since for now we join meeting via SfB, ppl cannot hear our voice since SfB did not have access of microphone on MacOS Mojave.
                        Skype should fix this issue.

                        • Displaying how many minutes/hours Available in Chat Window

                          We have option to display how many minutes or hours the respective associate is away or offline. Why don't we have the option of displaying the number of minutes or hours the associate is "Available". If skype displays the number of hours availability of the associate, it will helps him to understand about his dedication in front of his superiors at the same time he can plan his work accordingly.

                          Hope if such option is enabled, it will increase the productivity of most of the teams.

                          Also it will avoid unnecessary demotivating factors for the associates. For example, if the…

                              Whilst we are waiting for Microsoft to do a full Skype For Business Client for Linux perhaps supporting the Skype Web App for Linux via plugin would be easier? Note MAC supports both the Web App and Full Skype for Business client so it must be possible.

                              • Make Skype for business work with the Surface Pro

                                Seriously. Google it. Skype for business has had problems identifying the camera on Surface Pro machines for two years. They are both MSFT products. It is unacceptable that the only workaround based on MSFT support guidance is to disable the rear camera on the Surface in Device manager.

                                • Hide my Picture option does not hide your picture if an attendee opens meeting via s4b web app

                                  In your S4B client a user configures to hide my picture. If you setup a meeting and a attendee opens the meeting via the webapp, the attendee is still able to see the picture.
                                  The user still assumes the picture is hidden but this is not the case.
                                  Please make a change, if you hide your picture it is actually hidden.

                                          up key used to bring back the last message in the IM for editing, also we could right click on a "sent" message to edit or delete it, that feature should be put back into skype for business as well

                                          • Please include diversity in your emojis! Or least ambiguous ones. The 360 site talks about diversity inclusion and this does not model that

                                            The Microsoft 360 website talks about Diversity and Inclusion. The Business of Inclusion
                                            We strive to create an environment that helps Microsoft capitalize on the diversity of our people and the inclusion of ideas and solutions to meet the needs of our increasingly global and diverse customer base.

                                            The lack of diversity in the emojis does not make this a product that honors those values.
