    • Full screen desktop sharing for the web client

      Participants who join a SfB meeting via the web client are unable to view the shared content in full screen. Instead, the maximum size of the stage area is only about 50% of the available screen space. They are offered an option to view the content at full size within that space, however this is completely useless. The ability for web clients to view shared content at at least the same size as SfB clients is critical.

            • Plugin

              In Lync and SfB you can invite external people to a online meeting, and if these do not have Lync or SfB, they can install the web client, so that they can participate in the meeting via a browser. But a zero install / plugin free solution would be much better, so please speed up the development of a WebRTC&Ortc solution!

              • Improve the noticeablility of OWA Skype for Business notifications

                Need a way to improve the noticeability of received Skype for Business IMs in OWA.

                This could be through a separate or more "in your face" notification (e.g. flashing S4B icon) alerting users that there are IMs waiting. Also, adding an option for received S4B IMs to automatically open a chat window.

                Currently, notifications for Skype for Business are not easily distinguishable from other notifications on the OWA notifications pane. This causes users using the web client to overlook IMs for lengthy durations, which is problematic since IM is typically used for instantaneous communication.

                      • In dire need of a "make it rain" emoticon!

                        Discussing a sudden increase of economical welfare with a colleague I noticed the absence of an appropriate "make it rain" (as in a large quantity of folding money falling from the sky) emoticon. This left me with a hollow feeling and the rest of the day was despicable. Please fix this issue ASAP!

                        Best regards,

                        Fredrik

                          • Make an Attendee a Presenter

                            Once a meeting has begun you cannot make an attendee a presenter. From what I read(& tried) you can only set this under "meeting options" in Outlook when scheduling the meeting - it cannot be modified during the meeting. Secondly, when using the O365 Calendar to schedule a meeting (I am a Mac user so I cannot schedule via OL for Mac), there is no meeting options as there is in OL for Windows so the making any attendee a presenter is not possible.

                            • Full functionality from Office365 OWA; currently only IM available

                              As a Linux user we can currently can only use IM through the Outlook Web Application. In order to start an audio or video call an online meeting needs to be organised. We would appreciate to have the full functionalities of the clients directly through the web application, e,g click to call. Especially since an "offline" mode does not make any sense when talking about IM, calls and conferences.

                              • It should allow to add My Skype contacts

                                Need the option to have business and personal contact come together in 1 Skype interface at the client end. I don't want to have to run two instances to communicate with different groups. I also have a subscriptions linked to my private Skype account, which I'd like to be able to use to make calls to business contacts.

                                        ARM integration would be great! $15 (and now $5) arm based boards are flooding the market. I wanna incorporate video chat features into them!
