    • Remote "You are now joining the meeting" Prompt

      When a third part is added to a call, the third party first hears a recorded message saying "You are now joining the meeting”. This message is not business friendly and people things its a robocaller. Either make it more business friendly or remove it.

          • Dial-In Access Number Polish Language

            It would really be helpful to have Polish language added to the Primary Language selection/drop down in Skype server configuration for Dial-in Access Numbers.

            • "tel:" Build the Meeting invite link to include an option to click to dial fr

              SfB Click to Join from Mobile Phone Link

              Microsoft Case #: 617062994292561

              Presently, we are trying to edit the dialing string in our meeting invites to dynamically include the tel: link that has DTMF codes to pause for 6 seconds and then enter the conference ID for one click dialing. The links work if we build them manually, but we'd like the invite that is pre-generated to produce the string automatically. I've found constant posts of the requirements, but nothing that states steps on how to set it up.

              Ex:
              Dialing Number: 844 591-7815
              Made Up Conference ID: 098745632

              Link:…

              • PSTN Conference Outbound Calls to Full PSTN International Country List

                Presently, only 43 countries are supported for PSTN Conference outbound calling, compared to the full 150+ list of countries available with PSTN International dialing. These lists should support the same sets of countries.

                  I am forced to use my personal skype account for business. Please integrate the two product lines. Whoever thought to create divergent platforms is an idiot.

                    • Options to change PSTN audio conference dial-in voice message to English

                      I would like to have options to change the default local language voice message to English for Asia Pacific region while dialing-in to the local toll number. For now, English set as second language for some countries and there is no other option to change it.

                      • Add affordable conference calling

                        For small businesses it would be very valuable to be able to make calls via business skype and to also be able to add external customers to skpe conference calls via a conference callin number. Presently the cost is prohibitive and the configuration is way to complicated. I can call and add customers via regular skype at an extremely affordable rate and am presently and unfortunately using one of your competitors for online web/conference meetings -- zoom. I would much rather use a microsoft product.

                            As an example, I would like to be able to hide dial-in numbers for certain users, even when the would be participant selects "Find a local number"

( 2 ) Presenters must have the ability to UNMUTE a DIAL IN line. They can currently MUTE a specific dial in line, but for some reason the UNMUTE option for a specific line is not available!!!

                                    • Allow entry/exit announcements to be enabled by default

                                      Add an option to allow Entry & exit notifications to be turned on by default at the tenant level.

                                      Similar to the on-premise command of: -EntryExitAnnouncementsEnabledByDefault

                                      • During skype meetings, we need to see who is making the background noise

                                        During Skype meetings it is impossible to know who is making the noise. It would be very helpful, like WebEx does, to show who is talking or making sounds at any one time.
                                        It would also be helpful to be able to unmute people who called in on their phones instead of via VoIP.

                                        • Make phone numbers more readable in meeting requests

                                          In the Skype meeting request, under "Join by phone", make the phone number to dial into more readable. Currently it is 11 numbers in one long string. Put some parenthesis and dashes in there to break the number up and make it readable.
