    1. Allow users to modify shared mailbox voice mail settings via OWA without setting passwords on shared mailboxes

      We have hundreds of on-premises SfB response groups that transfer to on-premises Exchange UM shared mailboxes for voice mail on no-answer. Users with full access to the shared mailboxes regularly login to the shared mailboxes via OWA to record greetings and modify call answering rules, as needed. We are evaluating moving all mailboxes to O365, but shared mailbox voice mail settings are not accessible via OWA, which prevents this important feature. Moving user mailboxes to O365 while leaving shared mailboxes on-premises isn't an option, as the O365 mailbox user is denied access to on-premises OWA Exchange Control Panel (ECP) for…

    2. 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.

    4. 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

    5. 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.

    6. 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.

    7. 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.

    12. Make audio/video settings intuitive in SfB Web App

      Ability to change audio/video options in a clear and concise way, without the user having prior knowledge of an app to use.
      Today it's hidden behind a couple of icons once you've joined the meeting, making it difficult for users to correct the settings if they cannot hear or be heard in the conference.

      Suggestion: Audio options could be displayed under a text heading making it crystal clear where to click to check/change the settings.

      These controls should also be present while in the lobby, enabling users to verify their audio connection before entering the meeting.

    13. Status Hours

      Currently the status of a member shows how many hours or minutes the person is away from the system or offline. For example: Offline 10 hours , Offline 12 hours , Away 15 mins etc.
      As an operational manger, I would like to see the status of a member who actually worked for a given day i.e the status should show the logged in time and log out time with the time spent at desk on a day.
      This will help us to track the working hours of each individual in a team and helps in performance metrics.

      Thank you

    15. WebApp plugin in locked down Terminal Services

      Need to allow non-admins to join Skype for Business meetings in Terminal Services. We have some licensed SfB users but our Citrix Users are unable to join meetings since the webapp plugin is not allowed.
      There is an old document from TechNet for Lync 2013 using AppLocker, but nothing for SfB 2015/2016.
      https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/nettracer/2013/08/04/running-lync-2013-webapp-plugin-in-locked-down-terminal-server-environments/

      We use Office 365 Exchange Online w/SfB.

    16. 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.
