  1. Allow the video sharing the to fill the entire web browser.

    The desktop that people share only fills maybe 2/3 of my screen. The rest of the screen is filled with useless icons and heading. "presentation view" only helps a little bit. It blows me away that the one thing you want in a meeting, seeing someone else's screen, is the worst feature of this system, requiring me to use scroll bars, and not utilizing most of the screen. This is extremely frustrating.

    • Skype Conference Call - Launch a Timer on screen counting down the time based on length of call

      Hi - would it be possible that when a conference call is organised - when all dial in that a timer appears on screen counting down the time to zero based on the length of the original meeting times. This will help colleagues to really focus on their points and ensure that the meeting does not over run. The timer should be visible to ALL on the call.

      • 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).

          • Begin Skype broadcast BEFORE recording is started

            When conducting a skype broadcast to many users as a webinar, it is required to begin the broadcast early to allow for testing of the audio and make attendees feel comfortable in the WEB view of the meeting.

            This early start is not desired in the recording. It should be allowed to start the recording independently at a later point in time.

                • 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.

                  • Display a calculator to indicate amount of bandwidth to be prioritized for a smooth skype for business call

                    When someone is setting up a meeting request, in companies or even at individual participants locations, it is not obvious that they will have available bandwidth prioritized for the skype call.

                    It may be useful to add some info to participants, based on a 100% attendance, 80% attendance, 60% attendance, the amount of bandwidth you will need to be available for a smooth running skype call is : nnnnnn Mbps. The participant or the host can then communicate this requirement to the System administrator or determine for himself whether that amount of bandwidth is indeed available before going into a…

                            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.

                              Hello all,

                              Can it be implemented that the message "find a local number" from the Skype foe business invitation be removed?

                              There are companies who only have on number, but have offices in several countries?

                                • Improve screen sharing (real time) / response times for demo purposes (less latency)

                                  While sharing my screen for a demo with participants from whole Europe, the response time is more than a few seconds, so they can't see what I am actually doing on the screen.

                                  I expect that Skype for Business is good enough and does have milliseconds screen sharing response times and no latency.

                                  While being both users having cabled internet.

                                  My sessions are at 2 PM CET on Wednesdays from Utrecht, Netherlands. Having 12 - 20 participants. So you can check the logs.

                                  Could you please fix this?

                                    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.

                                    • Skype Meeting Broadcast - Template options and 16x9 video window

                                      Would like to see the ability to resize content and video windows. Could be via templates or navigation as in SfB. Video window is not wide-screen, crops a large part of 16x9 video which makes it difficult to keep presenter in-frame. Template options would be helpful.

                                        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
