    • when sharing screen, enable laserpointer from just like when in presentaions.

      when I share a PowerPoint presentation, the others can click the screen, an we all got a small laser dot with their name next to it, so we all can see where they click.
      That feature is disabled for anything else than PowerPoint,
      We want it for all presentations mode, especially when we just share the desktop.
      that would enable a lot better collaboration and quicker meetings :)

      • Group call with normal skype members

        At the moment you can only have one on one calls with users from the ordinary skype but it would be great if you could have conference calls with more than one skype user as a lot of people I conference with are ordinary people who already use and love Skype. I understand skype for business is new but please try to merge skype and sfb more and as quickly as possible because if not many people would simply not make the conversion. I've seen online that I'm not the only one who is trying to make the move from…

        • FULLSCREEN Presentations

          need option to have a true FULLSCREEN, rather than have a presentation occupy roughly 50% of the available viewer's screen space

          • 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.

              • Automatically accept meeting content

                We use Skype for Business to collaborate on a daily basis. Sometimes we'd like to start sharing content, and somebody misses the "Accept content" prompt. I'd like to be able to make so that if one of the other people starts presenting something, I automatically accept it.

                • Build a more stable video conferencing system - simple screen sharing seems to disconnect after a couple minutes for our entire company

                  We have tried working with individuals on different laptops, different offices, different networks and the issue persists.

                  We have a meeting where we share our screen - showing a powerpoint, a word document or web browser. After a few minutes, the screen share shows an old image and stops updating.

                  We have more than 40+ individuals using the system and the problem is consistent. Currently we have had to use WebEx as an alternative to screen sharing.

                  We ideally want to use Skype for Business for more than just chat, screen sharing is a big deal for us. We are…

                  • Customize the online meetings invitation format

                    It would be nice to be able to customize the Skype meeting Invitation rather than using Defaults + Company logo. We have many different user types and devices with various skills or the lack thereof. If we were able to specify not only Company Name in the footer, but to allow dial-in numbers with commas to automatically add the pin number, it would be a lot easier for people to join a conference. e.G.

                    • Allow screen sharing to zoom on higher resolution screens

                      If the viewer has a higher resolution screen than the presenter, presented content cannot be zoomed in to make it truly full screen - it zooms to the presenter's resolution, which does not fit the viewer's screen and leaves a lot of empty space around it (and looks small)

                      • Skype for Business screen sharing screen small

                        found that whenever we share screen in Skype for business we just had some gaps and the screen size showed small, no user was able to get a maximized screen view. We use Go To Meeting right now, and would like something similar in user experience where you can get a full screen view of users desktop but also still have access to your toolbar, etc.

                          • Use full screen when presenting

                            When presenting a PowerPoint or sharing a screen, Skype for Business wastes a lot of useable screen real estate on top, bottom and sides of display (monitor, projector, etc.). Makes it harder to read and doesn't seem to provide any explainable advantage. Using WebEx, Join.me, etc. every pixel of the display is used to show a PowerPoint. Would like the same capability with Skype for Business.

                            As a user, I would like to display a PowerPoint or screen share using the entire screen so that my meeting attendees can easily view the material being presented.

                            • Export a list of meeting attendees.

                              Why is there not an easy method to export a list of meeting attendees? It would be very helpful if, at the end of a meeting, the organizer would get a report of who joined, when they joined, and when they left. This is the most requested feature in my large organization. It seems simple.

                                • Ability to change the default layout

                                  Please provide a new option (that is configurable as an in-band provisioning setting) that allows users to change the default layout. Many of our users don't like that Speaker View is the default setting, and they have to change that setting every time they join a meeting.

                                  • Transfer Meeting from e.g. Desktop to mobile client and vice versa

                                    IF you have an O365 E3 plan, there is no option to transfer the meeting from Desktop to mobile client - because you do not have an Enterprise Voice Option. If you have to leave you are not able to hand over the meeting to your mobile client... :(
                                    It would be great, to be able to transfer the meeting to the mobile client (as it is already possible with e.g. IM)...

                                    • Add annotation tools for desktop/application sharing

                                      During meetings users want to share a running application (let's say for 3D modelling) not a native file format for upload to a meeting. Participants want the ability to annotate over that live share. Currently the process of pausing the meeting while the sharer does a print screen, opens a white board, then pastes the capture to be drawn on is painful and frustrating. I noted on the what's next Skype concept video the participants annotate on a live video feed. This functionality is really needed now!

                                      • Fix the inability for meeting hosts using lobby feature to see PSTN callers in the lobby!! Very frustrating and is keeping us from adoption

                                        Using Skype for business with Office 365. We are currently testing PSTN Conferencing using Microsoft as the dial in provider. We have a use case where the Organizer creates a Skype meeting from outlook, in meeting options sets "these people don't have to wait in the lobby" to only me the presenter, sends out the request to attendees, the Organizer joins the meeting on his computer, now when the attendees who dial via their phone, get all the prompts to join the meeting and are sent to the lobby, however the meeting organizer never sees the attendees calling in from…

                                        • Remove the need to click on "Hide Stage" to go back to larger view when no one is presenting

                                          Remove the need to click on "Hide Stage" to go back to larger view when no one is presenting. This is especially useful when you have a meeting in meeting rooms. People are supposed to be just sit in and look at the screen of presentation and if nothing is presented, should go back to expand video to normal size. This space shouldn't be taken up by the large and useless hide stage screen and requires someone to stand up and click to close it. This hide stage serves no purpose in my opinion.
