                    • Allow Screen Sharing in Mobile Client

                      When I am conducting a S4B meeting on my iPad, I would like to be able to share my iPad screen for others to see. Many times I have a PowerPoint presentation (which I can edit/view/present on my iPad), but I can't share this with others on my call when using S4B on iPad. Need ability to share screen on mobile devices. This would complete mobile experience with Office for iOS.

                      • iOS 10 compatibility: Meeting join

                        Sure, iOS 10 is still beta, but just to make sure you are aware of the issue and have a solution as soon as iOS 10 is released.

                        When opening a meeting URL Safari is starting the Lync (we use 2013) Web App. Usually, and working with iOS 9 and below, Safari asks to start the "Business" app and the meeting is opened within the SfB app.

                        With the current beta release (beta 7) this does not work. Lync Web App stays open in Safari and does not ask to open the "Business" app.

                        Hope you resolve the issue before…

                          • Create a Windows 10 UWP app for desktop, tablet and mobile

                            When I am using BYOD with an Office 365 Personal subscription, I do not have access to the Skype 4 Business app on desktop. Because of this, I use the Lync app from the Windows Store on my Windows 10 workstation and I use the Skype for Business app on my Windows 10 mobile device. Leveraging the updated UWP API's, inline responses from within the Notification Center would be helpful. It would also provide a more seamless experience between workstation and mobile with better presence and notification capabilities. Until then, make the Skype for Business UWA app available to PC…

                                Need to be able to pick-up calls coming in on response groups.
                                During times our employees are not at their desk for whatever reason we need to be able to pick-up incoming calls, also on our mobiles!

                                Alle other major phone solutions offer this service, why doesn't Microsoft?

                                • Update S4B for iPad Pro (Screen size and split screen)

                                  Update the iOS version for the iPad Pro screen size. Also, incorporate split view. Would be awesome to have a meeting going on one side of the screen with another app open in the other.

                                  • Hide / Remove "mobile status" when using Skype on mobile (eg.Android)

                                    Either:
                                    1) Please remove this feature that shows that I'm connected through mobile on Skype.
                                    OR better option:
                                    2) Please allow to permanent status - so once, I set the status message it will be kept until I change it again (automatic status change should be optional only!)

                                    Thanks for voting, and thanks for the implementation!

                                      It would be nice if the phone app was disabled once your computer is active. Once your Computer was away or offline, the phone app would re-activate.

                                      • Enable option for host to admit users from the lobby on mobile client

                                        I currently have no way of admitting people into my conference from my Windows10 mobile SfB App.
                                        This is annoying as I have to rely on other presenters/people from my organization to admit those people. And worst case (no other presenters or participants from my organization) the conference cannot take place because I am unable to admit the participants.

                                        • Please support whiteboard on mobile apps

                                          Please support presenting a whiteboard on mobile app. It is easy to draw diagrams to explain stuff and it is easy to do that using mobile than mouse on computer (not everyone has a touch screen, at least not office laptops).
