    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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…

            • 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.

              • 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.

                  • Configurable ring delay of mobile clients when desktop app isn't idle or logged out

                    A user should be able to configure a delay of ringing mobile device(s) when one or more desktop clients aren't idle (away) or signed out. Ie. between 2-8 seconds.

                    This avoids unneccesary disturbing additional mobile notifications, but ensures you dont miss any calls and automatically ensures immediate mobile notification when not at your desk.

                    The only current alternative is to disable mobile ringíng or vibration , which makes me unneccesarily miss calls.

                    For bonus point; make this centrally configurable via sefautil. It doesn't need to be configurable on the mobile client itself.

                    • Video in Skype Meeting Broadcast should start automatically on iPad

                      On an iPad, with either Safari or Chrome, the video does not start automatically after user has sign in. This is a different behavior compared to the desktop experience in which the video start right away.

                      The video should launched automatically on every type of devices.

                      Microsoft support (case #617092091284451) was able to reproduced the issue and suggested me to open this idea here.

                          • 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.

                                    • Mute all on iOS

                                      In a more mobile work environment it is sometimes critical to be able to control a SfB Conference from a mobile device.
                                      One of these controls is to be able to mute all participants during a conference call. When can such a feature be implemented in the SfB iOS application?

                                      • Allow full mute of the speakers, while in a meeting

                                        It happened that I needed to view the content of a meeting on my mobile device screen, while being physically present in a meeting room with central audio/video devices. I could only do that if I muted the speakers, as otherwise, it caused feedback on the central device.

                                        • Meetings do not show on Skype For Business IOS

                                          As EWS is not working for smart phone, the integration between exchange online and Lync online is always not working. From Office 365 support team for further analysis, we got the only solution to change the UPN for users to fix the problem. But we are wondering if there is a way to bypass changing the UPN as this might be too significant a change with all the applications and services running in our environment.

                                          We requested that product team could focus on this issue and improve the products to fix it ASAP. Thanks.
