  1. Skype IM persistence should be instant across all device

    Right now, Office tries to determine which device you're "active" on before messages are routed there for Skype IMs/conversations. This is supremely annoying and not productive. For example, I start a conversation on my phone, then switch to the web or a PC. my message doesn't exist everywhere... I don't see the history immediate on my Skype client on PC... and sometimes if Office hasn't determined I'm active on the PC, the next few responses may go to my mobile only without ever making it to the PC or the web. It's really frustrating. All IMs, ALL THE TIME, should…

      • Allow for multiple user accounts simultaneously

        I work as a consultant, and frequently need to be able to access sfb both using my employee account and accounts from one or more customers from my phone or tablet. Currently this seems impossible, which is just weird. Please fix.

            • Highlight Current Speaker while Presentation is Active on iOS Client

              Currently when in a meeting with a presentation, the active speaker is not shown, nor can it be seen by going to the participants view.

              Please modify the app so that the active speaker's name is displayed while they are talking, and...

              In the presenter's view, highlight the active speakers (move to top of list and darken the background or font color based on the audio volume they are sending into the meeting)

              • CarPlay & Android Auto

                I would like to have the Skype for Business iOS & Android app with CarPlay / Android Auto functionality. To ensure a safe driving experience.

                You have added the app to the Volvo 90-series, which makes the business case for CarPlay / Android Auto even more compelling, you will reach an even bigger audience with these additions.

                  • file sharing in mobile client

                    Please enable the ability to share files and send photos via the Skype for Business app. Without this feature, we are unable to use Skype as a full replacement for our current VOIP system since this is something all our users require.

                    • Fix error - 10 to 15 second lag when answering call queue from mobile phone

                      When we answer call queue calls from a mobile phone there is a 10 to 15 second lag between when we answer the call to when the caller can hear us speaking. We understand this can be due in part to the quality of the internet connection, but we must at least have some kind of indicator to know when our voice can be heard by the caller, instead of just continuing to repeat "can you hear me now".

                      • S4B App on Iphone not ringing when Voice settings are in "VOIP always" and Iphone is locked.

                        When calls are made to S4B number, if S4B app is in "VOIP always" state in voice settings, IPhone will not ring when it is locked. Instead it will send a notification of a missed call. Microsoft needs to work with Apple on fixing this bug. App should work as described.

                        • Fix error - call queue answer notification on mobile phones

                          Currently when an agent answers a call from a call queue, the mobile phone app registers it as a missed call for the other agents in that queue.
                          The mobile app also does not display the name of the agent who answered the call the way that the computer app does.

                          • End audio but keep chat open

                            Currently, when I am in a meeting that has audio, I can't close the audio while leaving the chat active.

                            Audio needs to be independent. I should be able to add and remove audio without interrupting the chat.

                            • Mobile Phones S4B client sleep mode issue for first CCE calling

                              Environment:
                              • CCE Version 1.4.2
                              • Calls are from the PSTN via our Gateway to CCE 1.4.2 then through to O365 users and Cloud PBX
                              • Push notification enabled in O365

                              Symptoms:
                              This applies when O365 users are on their Mobile Phone Skype for Business client. (IOS or Andriod)

                              If the handset is sleep mode (phone screen off and locked and been inactive for 10 minutes or more)
                              Then the first incoming call from PSTN / CCE does not wake the handset up.
                              A second incoming call from PSTN / CCE immediately after the first will wake the handset up…

                              • Interactive Notifications

                                Please allow us to respond to "skype for business" conversations via the push notifications.

                                On IOS, it's possible to allow a user to interact with a push notification. In the case of chat apps, this is very useful to allow a user to quickly respond to a notification.

                                This functionality is common amongst the majority of modern chat applications.

                                  • Add single click dial-in string with pauses and conference ID to meeting invites viewed in iOS client.

                                    There needs to be a simple single click format in text like this: 1-555-1212,,12345678 on iPhone native iOS Calendar, that is a "1-click" join.

                                        • iOS Client Presence doesn't update correctly

                                          On the mobile client we have it regulary that the presence suddenly doesn't update correctly anymore. On the last conversations lists and inside a chat window an old presence state is shown. Only if you access the contact list you see the current presence. You have to end the client through the iOS task manager and start it again to fix this. This gets really annoying when colleagues try to chat with another person for example that is shown as available but in reality is offline etc.
