  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).

    • End meeting after last person leaves.

      Microsoft should auto end a meeting once the last person leaves. Do not rely on end users to properly end the meeting - they do not understand the difference between selecting the "x" (which simply lets them leave the meeting) and performing the End Meeting process. If a meeting is not properly ended, it remains as an active meeting within reporting and can cause issues with "uninvited" guest appearing within the meeting. Bottom line, Microsoft needs to make the process of ending the meeting automatic - no user action required.

      • 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.

        • 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

          • Transmisión en vivo

            Las reuniones por difusión deben ser en vivo, actualmente el servicio tiene retraso en la transmisión y no se puede interactuar.

            • Add dashes or some other separator for conference IDs in Outlook meeting message

              The message for Skype meetings typically looks something like this:
              Join by phone
              +15554442222 (Dial-in Number)

              Conference ID: 42158257

              Could dashes be added in the phone number and conference ID number? Something like:

              Conference ID: 42-15-82-57

              This would make it much easier to read when punching in conference IDs when calling by phone (accessiblity improvement!)

                • Allow tagging of meeting attendees who join from phone

                  When a user has dialled into a conference call via phone (landline, mobile phone), it'd be good to be able to tag them in the SfB meeting window with some kind of text description. Helpful for long, larger meetings when you want to keep track of the names of participants.

                  • Bring back Anonymous feedback via Whiteboards and PowerPoint Annotation Tools

                    There is a lot of power in anonymous feedback, and am disappointed that we are losing it with the recent “fix” on Skype for Business to whiteboards and PowerPoint annotations. I would like to see some Skype tools on hand to gather feedback anonymously.

                    • increase size of screen used for screen share

                      the available space for screen sharing is very small. please take a look at how much better it is on webex, and allow for almost full screen to be used for viewing screen sharing. maybe make sorrounding things clickable to make them disappear.

                      • 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.

                          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.

                          • Prompt to use VoIP or Dial-in for Skype Meetings App instead of forcing VoIP.

                            While using Skype Meetings App for external users, have the app ask to join with phone or VoIP, not just force to use VoIP.

                            • Skype Meetings App prompt "Your audio is connected through your PC. Switch audio to my phone" experience.

                              When you join the meeting the first time with Skype Meetings App, it says "Your audio is connected through your PC. Switch audio to my phone". When you click this button it prompts you a number and conference ID but that is it. User calls in but audio is still joined to computer. Extra steps have to be taken to remove the VoIP connection that don't need to happen.

                              • We need to be able to show video in a Powerpoint etc during the use of Skype Meeting Broadcast.

                                Our upper management would like to use Skype Meeting Broadcast to perform their company-wide communication meetings. These meetings include financial information, company information, and at time marketing information which can include showing of new commercials that will air. This cannot be done without the use of video in the meeting. Our company is trying to fully utilize the Skype product but we ar unable to at this point.

                                • Entry/Exit VOICE announcements

                                  Provide voice announcements when people enter or leave the meeting Ex. "Tom has entered the meeting". I know when you call in it asks for your name, but when they enter a meeting all I hear is a "ding!" when I have "Announce when participants enter or leave" enabled.

                                  • Allow meeting recording of ALL AUDIO!!

                                    Only recording via Skype for Business audio with a PC headset is accepted. Not everyone in my company uses headsets when dialing into meeting. Even if I start a recording on my PC using a headset. If someone calls in via telephone their audio stream will not be recorded. SMH....

                                    We came from GoTo Meeting and this sort of feature should of been available out of the box with Skype for Business Online. Boggles my mind that Microsoft releases products missing functionality that is in widespread use in the marketplace.

                                    ALL AUDIO SHOULD BE RECORDED!!

                                    • Gallery View Size Options:

                                      Gallery View images are too small and should be adjustable. Especially difficult for visually impaired.

                                      • Update statuses to 'Do Not Disturb' or 'Presenting' when sharing secondary monitors

                                        It may be through design to update the status when only using a primary monitor. Statuses should be updated regardless of any monitor that is shared. There are times where I share a secondary monitor and do not want to be disturbed when I am presenting.

                                        • Allow recordings to show all attendees

                                          It would be great if the Skype for Business recordings were able to record all attendees on the screen instead of just who is speaking. I'd love to see the recording look just like it does in real time - with all attendees being visable.
