        • 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…

          • file share

            It’s ridiculous that Skype can file share but Skype for business can’t! It’s a staple part of any IM app.

              • Mobile client is a complete disaster. Period.

                For starters...

                If you have bluetooth music playing on your phone and a call comes in, the music still plays within the call, something should mute the music or pause it.

                The lock screen comes on if i have the phone on speaker, making all the function keys inaccessible quickly, major PITA!

                Client takes about 5-10 seconds once you answer a call to actually connect with the person, WIFI or MOBILE...

                Whole thing is just a mess.

                  • Make a Skype for Business Call from Outlook Contacts (mobile - IOS)

                    On an IOS device with:
                    *Skype for Business
                    *Outlook
                    *Phone Plan (VOIP)
                    when I select a number to dial I should also get an option in the selection list to call from SFB.

                    Currently the list shows
                    *Call
                    *Facetime
                    *Send Message
                    *Copy

                    Open to other implementation options including a config option to set this as a default.

                    Currently I need to copy and paste from Outlook to SFB

                    • Differentiate Recent and Active conversations

                      Please distinguish between Recent and Active conversations. I have a thousand old conversations under recent multiple conversations with the same person. It makes it **** trying to respond to the latest conversation. I’ve also replied to the top most convesation in the Recent list and the other person didn’t get the message. If there was an “Active” then below it have all the “Recent” a user can head straight to the Active to find the latest conversation.

                      • iOS 11 Screen Sharing using broadcast feature similar to Webex

                        WebEx added screen sharing to iOS 11 devices utilizing the broadcast feature. This single feature prevents my company from using iPads as complete mobile meeting devices.

                        • Enable screen sharing on Android devices (technically possible as shown in other apps)

                          Many apps already allow sharing your screen on Android devices - but Skype for Business is not.

                          May it be possible to integrate this function?

                          Me being a mobile user need this feature to show my screen when I do things in SharePoint using my mobile browser.

                          • Allow muting notifications

                            SfB notifications on mobile is generally a mess, but nowhere more annoying than when listening in a conference while on the move, getting notifications for every stupid joke and emoticon posted in the chat and not least the endlessly useless «xx has turned on video». Allow granular customization of what notifications to receive, and/or introduce a mute feature per session/conversation.

                              I gather from the other attendees and the presenter that there's an instant messaging feature. Shame it isn't available for me (app on Android 6.0 and on Android 5.0.1)

                              • Allow to JOIN exist meeting through "ms-sfb URI" - "Skype for Business - Mobile URIs"

                                https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/skype/skype-for-business-uris/sfbmobileuri

                                Provides ms-sfb URI to launch app, start a call or a chat. But it does not provide the operation to JOIN exist meeting which is also a very popular operation for end user/developer.

                                We suggest to extend the ms-sfb URI to support more operations, including but not limited with:
                                1. JOIN a meeting
                                2. Start a group chat
                                3. Start a group meeting
                                ....

                                • Allow Group/Conference Calls Between Skype For Business and Skype (Free) Users

                                  Currently when you create a conference call or group meeting in Skype For Business if an external user tries to join by using an iPhone/Android device they are forced to use the Skype App. If the external user does not have a Skype For Business account then they will have to use the Skype (Free) app. When they do so the meeting will be limited to a 1 on 1 meeting and no one else will be able to join. This is causing us to look at different options for conducting interviews with external users.

                                      • Add unicode Emoji standard

                                        Using unicode standard reduces your time developing emojis.
                                        An enable disable functionality may be interesting for some.

                                        For all clients.

                                        • VoIP Always Unavailable

                                          My IT policy makes the use of the 'VoIP Always' option unavailable when not on Wifi. As a user I was unaware that IT policy was causing this because there is ZERO indication in the UI that this is the case... instead it simply prevents me from selecting the option (it's not greyed out... it looks like I ought to be able to select it).

                                          It took several calls to my internal IT team to figure out why this feature could not be enabled when it should have been clear from the UI.

                                          • Add automatic rejoin option for android

                                            Why do a lot of people use Skype for Business Android version? Because they need to be in a business-related, cross-timezone meeting and also need to be in a car at the time (hands-free, naturally).

                                            What happens when there is a burp in the cellular data connection? The connection drops out.

                                            What does SfB do? Gives an accursed manual rejoin option.

                                            What are the driver's choices at that point? Stop being hands-free in order to rejoin the meeting (physically dangerous) or miss the rest of the meeting (highly undesirable).

                                            Please add an automatic rejoin _option_ to improve the safety of…
