  1. Possibility to point on presenters screen

    When discussing a drawing for example, it would be helpful that also the clients can point on the screen and their mouse position is shown.
    This will give a Feedback to all participants above what detail the client is talking.
    Mouse is shown only if the client press the mouse button. Each client has its individual pointer (name, colour).

    • S4B Breakout rooms functionality

      It would be really helpful if skype for business offered breakout rooms, or meetings within meetings. It'll help with training sessions that's conducted globally.

      • Ping attendees who haven't yet joined the meeting

        As a meeting organizer I find myself reaching out to meeting attendees to see why they aren't yet in the meeting. It would save me a ton of time the meeting organizer had a 'ping' button that would either send email or a private IM message to any attendee that accepted the meeting invite but has not yet joined the meeting.

        • Meeting reporting for attendees

          617051993407607
          For auditing purposes, it is necessary to have information about people who attend skype meetings and how long they participate in the meeting. We would like a function/script/report that provides this information.

          • Gallery view options

            Currently if you have more then video callers in one meeting room, you can only see 5 and the rest are smaller windows. With the amount of empty space on the screen there's no reason callers can't be arranged in a 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, etc grid to allow for you to see all callers

            • Skype & recurring meetings in Outlook

              On occasions people are out of the office, and it would be nice to be able to add a Skype Meetings to 1 occurrence in that series.

              Example - I have a recurring meeting, but will be at remote location and want to lead the call. It is impossible to edit 1 meeting in Outlook to add the Skype call. There are work around like going online to sched.lync.com, but that is a bigger burden on the end user.

              • Affordable 38" screen w/screen touch dial up ability

                An affordable 38" screen or one deemed large enough to see every child in an average size classroom. Used only for skyping. Has touch screen dial up ability, sufficient audio for average classroom size. To be used by elementary school rooms all over the world so they can speak with each other for the basic purpose of understanding and educating each other. Start early with the notion of world peace. Don't think it will be difficult to find translators for those sessions these days..if necessary

                • Ability to see the meeting participant list during desktop/application sharing without having to switch back to Skype

                  When I share my desktop within Skype and screenshare an application or file (such as Excel spreadsheet), I no longer see the participant list. It would be helpful to see the participant list within the application I am sharing from my desktop, without having to switch back to Skype and disrupt the screenshare. This would be useful for project management or training meetings with a large number of participants, where a screenshare and live edits are needed, while being able to address the participants for their feedback.

                  • Option to remove the Skype logo from Skype for Business Customers

                    Please create a checkbox for Business Customers to remove the Skype logo. It uses valuable Screen real estate and Businesses already use the term 'Skype me'.

                    • Meeting location field in Meeting requests should not be editable

                      Meeting location field in Meeting requests should not be editable and should be kept if the original location is a meeting room and hasn't been removed from meeting request by the owner.

                      • Increase the conference call file size upload limit, or at least provide the option to do so.

                        It would be great to have the option to increase the file size upload limit in conference calls even if this was a paid feature.

                          • Add ability to create multiple dial in conferencing policies

                            In this specific case, we need the ability to create a policy to disable entry/exit announcements for a group of users. The global policy is currently set to enable. We would like to continue using the global policy for all other users.

                                All individuals in a meeting should be able to collaborate on the same whiteboard (when given appropriate permissions). We would like this to be implemented across platforms - Surface, Surface Hub, etc.

                                  • Utilize the microphones of the meeting participants when there is a central audio device and some of the participants are in the same room

                                    When there is a meeting between people in one or more meeting rooms and people online, it is often that the people online cannot hear very well all people that share a physical meeting room and use one central audio device. It would be good if the physical participants can use their laptops' microphones, while still receive the audio via the central device in the physical meeting room.

                                    • Integrate Skype for Business Meetings into Consumer Skype App

                                      As a user of both consumer Skype and Skype for Business, I often wonder why Microsoft keeps these apps separate. OneDrive and other MS Apps which have Biz and Consumer brands have, over time, come together into a single App, despite differences in underlying technologies.

                                      My request here is to enable the consumer Skype App to support S4B Meetings. This will mean every user who has the Skype App installed can easily join S4B Meetings. This would give MS a competitive edge over WebEx, Go-to-meetings, etc., because a broader range of users will have a usable App already installed on…

                                      • Insert PDF files in whiteboard

                                        Currently, the whiteboard feature allows you to insert image files such as .jpg or .png. However, most of the files that my organization works with are .pdf. I would like to be able to insert a .pdf file so that meeting participants could mark and annotate them just as if they were image files.

                                        And, yes, I know that I can save every .pdf file as an image file from adobe, but that it a lot of work to re-save every file I wish to collaborate on. It seems like this would be an easy feature to add.

                                        • Static Conferencing IDs for a single user

                                          Hello,

                                          We'd like to have Static Conferencing IDs configurable at the user level and not just he Organizational level, this will allow executives to memorize a specific conferencing ID to join a conferencing bridge on the fly if needed.
