      • Requesting entry and exit tones apply to all Conference participants regardless of modality

        Requesting entry and exit tones apply to all Conference participants, regardless of modality. This is to address gap in blended experience.

        • Static Conference ID Meeting Invite is Poor Design

          The meeting invite for tenants with Staic Conference ID is not that same as that of Dynamic IDs. I am told this is by design. If that is true the design is terrible. It has a huge chunk of whitespace in it, has lost the PSTN number location and the forgot PIN link. There is not need for it to be different to the dynamic one. Please resolve.

          • join skype meeting with hangouts

            Would be nice if audio conference in outlook will be not a platform dependent. I would love to use hangouts to join meetings. Could you support it ?

            • Enable audio/sound when you share a video in a Skype meeting

              When sharing/review of a video in a skype meeting, the participants can not hear the audio/sound on it.
              Instead you have to send the link by chat, but then all participants have to leave the Skype meeting and view the video in a browser

              • Allow audio numbers to be added to meeting request

                Powwownow has a more powerful meeting template system when scheduling a meeting. It allows numbers to be easily copied from the long list into the meeting request. This is much more customer friendly when you know the country the attendees will be calling from - which is often the case with a small audio conference.

                • It will be nice if the audio-conferencing services are extended to enable the users to have an Indian local number for the incalls

                  Currently Indian users of Skype for Business only have web interface to do audio-conferencing. It will be nice if the services are extended to enable the Indian users also subscribe to an Indian local in-call number (preferably MSISDN).

                  • Ability to turn off audio entry and exit notifications

                    There should be an option to easily turn off the audio entry and exit notifications during a conference call.

                    • When Users user "Call Me At" opton should to to IVR to press 1 to join meeting.

                      When are users use the "Call Me At" feature and their phone Is forwarded they here ringing in the conf meeting. If they miss call or have cell phone issue and call goes to voicemail users in the conference hear the person's voicemail message. If large meeting its hard to find the user to kick them out. This could be solved by having the phone ring user picks up and is prompted by IVR to press 1 to enter the meeting. Only then would the user be added into the meeting.

                        • Add option to use legacy dial-in phone number and conference ID format

                          When creating a Skype Meeting in Outlook, the latest build uses the format of:
                          +61 2 XXXXXXXX,, 123456789#

                          The previous builds used:
                          +61 2 XXXXXXXX access code: 123456789

                          The new format can be quite confusing as most of our users dont join from telephone enabled computers or mobile devices.

                          Please add an administrative control in the Skype for Business Admin Center to toggle between the old and new format.

                              • More dynamic pricing options for audio-conferencing given the end of life for third party ACP providers

                                Given the recent announcement for EoL of third party ACPs could the dial-in conferencing plan for O365 be a little more dynamic, ie billing per unique conference initiator per month.
                                We have ~3500 users who we would like to provide this functionality to but some of these users may very rarely host a dial-in conference so we cannot justify a regular monthly cost. We would be happy to pay for X number of unique PSTN conference hosts per month which would be used up dynamically as conferences are setup.

                                    • Improve group calling with regular Skype

                                      Currently on Skype for Business you can hold a group call. The same is possible on regular Skype. Why is this not possible across both platforms? If your company uses Skype for Business and a client uses regular Skype, then you are unable to do a group call but can only call one person at a time across the services.

                                        • Easy audio device troubleshooting tool in the web client and desktop clients

                                          Our users frequently report that meeting attendees have trouble participating in Skype meetings because they have the incorrect device selected for speakers and / or mics.

                                          The desktop and web clients need a "Need Help?" or "Not Working?" (i'm sure you can find a better label, but you get the idea) button that immediately brings up audio device settings so users can easily select the correct audio device.

                                          • replay attack detection

                                            currently if a participant sends his SIP UPDATE with a timer refresh to conf focus of a federated partner and the packet gets lost in the wide world of internet, the client retransmits it's update, but the front end holds it back due to "replay attack detected".
                                            Can this be changed?
