  1. 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.

    • "rate my call"

      Need to be able to disable completely the "Rate My Call" feature. Right now, the default is 10% of calls get a survey, but you can't turn it all the way off.

      • Don't automatically make emotes in the middle of words

        It's annoying when you paste some code like "void Button::OnPressed" and it thinks the ":O" in the middle was supposed to be an emote

            • This program is like a IM client from 10 years ago.

              Just improve the **** thing. Syncing with mobile is a mess. Sharing images is a mess. Voice and audio is a mess. Skype for business feels like IM from 2001.

              • Frequency adjustment for webcams

                As in the previous version of Skype, there was a way to alter the frequency of the webcam from 60Hz to 50Hz. It looks like the default setting in the new Skype is 60Hz. Sadly this causes lines all over the webcam image and someone thoughtfully removed any option to change this in the new version. Can this be put back please as the new Skype is unusable for me in the UK in its current format

                    • Make the Skype Web App compatible with Linux via plugin

                      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.

                      • It is not acceptable to have to possibly wait 24 hours for Skype to work for a newly-added E3 license

                        It is not acceptable to have to possibly wait 24 hours for Skype to work for a newly-added E3 license despite Micosoft's statement here that we might have to wait that long: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3063407/new-office-365-users-are-not-provisioned-for-skype-for-business-online

                        We have to provision users quickly and this situation severely impacts that.

                          • More like Lotus Sametime

                            I was forced over to Skype after years of using Lotus Notes Sametime. One thing I miss about Sametime is the ability to insert custom pictures and .gifs instead of using a stable of approved ones offered by Skype.
                            Also please add chat history like I had with Sametime. Chat history makes the application much better for collaboration.

                              • Skype for Business (web) should allow changing the settings of the meeting, please.

                                When I create new meeting in Outlook web app and make it Skype meeting, I cannot change the settings of that meeting - for example, only people from my company can be presenters. I see it, but can not change it.

                                Please make those settings editable.
                                Thanks!

                                    • Fix Add Skype Meeting Option in OWA When Sending to an Outlook Group Calendar

                                      There is a bug in OWA when attempting to send a meeting invite to an Outlook Group that includes the Add Skype Meeting option. Those meetings do not get sent out correctly to the group distribution list and after about 10 to 15 minutes those invites disappear from the group calendar entirely. There appears to be a bug in the background processing for these group meeting invites that bails on adding the Skype Meeting details which then just kills the invite altogether.

                                      To repro the bug, go into an Outlook Group calendar and create a new meeting that gets sent…

                                      • add a stop watch, small, floating, can be truned on/off

                                        often meeting runs long. suggest add stop watch, allow organizer to run on off, keep the meeting runs on time
