  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…

        • Automatically set my location

          It would be nice if user would be able to automatically update his location. E.g. “lab A”, “office”, “home”, etc.

          1. A good preliminary step: add a “Change location to this, if I’m active on this device” field. Just a constant pre-defined string for each device (and a checkbox). At least, it allows to automatically switch location between “work PC” and “home PC”.

          2. The main idea: add a “Remember the WiFi Access Point MAC I’m currently connected through” button (one could add “switch port”, “subnet”, “ip”, “GPS” and many other features, but I’d say it would be nice to…

          • 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.

              • Skype for business in split screen mode in one plus 5.

                It would be a great idea if Skype for business can be implemented in split screen mode on mobile. This could help people in many ways.

                • Users getting NDR when sending message over skype to other user, however the messages are delivered. ( Issue only on mobile device ).

                  Users getting NDR when sending message over skype to other user, however the messages are delivered. ( Issue only on mobile device ). We have many issue like this and and MS engineer told it is as per design. Because SFB is was running in the background. We would request to fix it in design lebel and all. is as smooth as skype consumer, wattsapp and all.

                    • Ability to change idle time on mobile app for iOS and Android.

                      Currently there is no setting within the mobile app to change how long a status will be active until it is changed to 'idle' by the software.

                      We want the ability to have our status as 'available' even if we are not actively using the phone. (ie. phone is on, app is open, connection via data/wifi is good yet we are not actively using the phone due to driving, sleeping, phone in pocket/purse, etc.)

                          • URI to initiate Skype for Business group conversation

                            many developers around the world try to integrate Skype / Skype for business with their own apps.
                            While its simple to do for desktop, but its a bit difficult to do so on mobile client.
                            The URI schemes are different for desktop and mobile. And moreover, there is no URI provided for group conversation.

                            So, opening skype for business using URI is allowed for desktop as well as mobile platform.
                            Initiating a single conversation using URI is allowed for desktop as well as mobile platform.
                            Then why initiating group conversation is allowed for desktop only and not for mobile??
                            Shouldn't…

                              Call history from Wireless Caller does not show phone number anywhere. It's impossible to distinguish wireless callers. I would replace "Wireless Caller" with the phone number instead. Who cares if it is wireless?

                              • Make the Android Skype for Business app work the same way that iOS and Windows desktop app does.

                                Make the Android Skype for Business app work the same way that iOS and Windows desktop app does. SIP links on desktop and iOS both open into a chat window based on the address in the link. On android this just opens the Skype for Business app. It is not consistent

                                  • Support for lync 2010 servers on ios

                                    Currently no support for lync 2010 servers on iOS Skype for business.
                                    With lync 2010 no longer supported on iOS can you add this functionality to SfB?
                                    Weirdly on Windows and macOS SfB works fine with our 2010 lync servers.

                                    • iOS Volume Bug

                                      Please fix review and fix this potential bug.
                                      SRX617111493076412ID - iPhone X user can't adjust volume while on speaker.

                                      The workaround for our incident was to reset the user's password.

                                        • Change video input sorce

                                          I would like the ability to be able to use external video cameras (webcam) with the android mobile app. like the input/ouyput funktion for sound i would like the funktion for change source of video.

                                          so if you use a docking station like Samsung Dex or Huwaeii Mate 10 you have the ability to use a big screen and desktop feel and still retain the main funktion of a confrence call with a grp of people.

                                          i dont think i am the only person that uses skype that can se the funktion for this.

                                          I want to add that aperently…
