    1. Attendance list for Skype Meetings/Trainings

      The ability to download a list of participants that attended a Skype meeting or training (Including external participants) would be VERY MUCH appreciated. Using Skype for business for training is difficult without this option available (besides Ctrl+N, which only includes the internal participants and lists external participants as 'Guest'')

      • View more than five video meeting participants simultaneously

        Currently the max number of participants shown in the gallery in a Skype video meeting is five. Increase this number so that a larger group can see video of all participants. We regularly have meetings with 10-20 participants in Skype video. Would be great to see everyone simultaneously.

          • Sort options in the participants box

            Sort options in the participants box for message, audio, video and presentation status. this would help identify quickly who is not mute with background noise, presenting, etc.

            • Enable Music on Hold in Skype Meetings for participants joining through Skype for Business client.

              We are able to enable MOH before the meeting starts in Skype Meetings via PowerShell command Set-CsClientPolicy -Identity global -EnableClientMusicOnHold $True but this only enables MOH for participants that dials in to the meeting. Please enable for SFB participants.

              • Add Entry/Exit Text Announcements to Conversation/Discussion

                Would like to see the announcements to be text-based and logged within the meeting conversation rather than voice interrupts. This allows all participants to be notified of the comings/goings of participants - logged with date/time stamps, and does not interrupt the flow of a voice discussion or presentation materials. This also provides an audit trail for meeting organizers out of the box of who showed and when.

                • Warn when trying to send message when not viewing latest messages

                  When having a long text conversation, often I will scroll up the messages to look at what my colleague sent to me previously. I can lose track of what the latest message was and accidentally reply to an old message.
                  Please give me a warning when I try to send a message and am not scrolled down to view the latest messages.

                  • Remove "Manage Content" and Add a Paperclip

                    During every national call, we have several people ask where they can find the content being shared. When we used Lync, it was obvious or someone could just say "it's in the paperclip" which was easy to find. Now someone has to explain where the attachments are buried or someone has to email the content to the participants. Please make it easier to find the attachments.

                    • Worldwide Callin numbers on meeting invites (not just in a link)

                      Based on Company size, allow for meeting invite to include more than one geographic local number.

                      This is huge for large multi-national companies

                      Ideally, this would include the ",,????????#" meeting ID to speed up login, as clicking for other numbers does not necessarily show the meeting ID

                      ROI: Seconds per meeting, per attendee for multi national calls, which also reduces stress/annoyances for people calling in outside of their preferred time zones

                      This is in response to the note:
                      "There can be a maximum of one toll and one toll-free phone number on the meeting invite for a meeting organizer, but…

                      • Show a histogram of talk time by each person on the meeting

                        We use Skype for Business at work extensively and it is very common to see 1-2 people hoarding all the meeting time. This happens even if none of them are the actual presenters. It is possible that many of these people are unaware of their behavior and also unaware that they are deterring other people from speaking. Having a visible histogram of everyone's talk time will enable people to self-regulate. This will improve the quality of meetings and allow many diverse views to be heard.

                          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.

                          • Audience 'laser pointer' during screen sharing

                            When a Presenter screen shares... and I need to provide instant feedback - I'd like to interact with the Presenter's screen in a read-only / visual only manner... like a 'laser pointer'.
                            Use case: Customer is sharing their screen and I need to direct them where to go... words can't always describe exactly where to 'click'... but a laser pointer can be a leap of an improvement.

                            • Live Stream Skype for Business Meeting Video/Audio

                              We would like the ability to live stream our Skype for Business meeting video and audio feed on our website and social media platforms, like; Facebook Live, YouTube, Livestream, Ustream, etc..

                              At minimum, we would like the ability to embed the video on our website. The only way to broadcast video and audio to an external source; such as; livestream, FB, YT, now is to use a Desktop capture video software. We would hope Skype would give us access to an API library that would allow us to directly connect the video/audio feed to these streaming platforms directly.

                                • 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 :)

                                  • Additional layout options in Skype Broadcasts

                                    In Skype Broadcast, ability to change layout for larger video when displaying video and content. Currently, when you share content, it shrinks the video portion to about 30% and displays the content to 70%. I'd like to see the ability to change this so that the video portion isn't so small. On MACs it's even smaller. We have many cases where we would need to see the person talking as well as seeing the content and when you do both, it's really hard to see the presenter on video. Giving us the option of making this 50/50 or even 60/40…

                                    • 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!)

                                      • Preload presentations and content with Skype for Business on premise

                                        The following link indicates you can preload content into SfB Online meetings by attaching files to the meeting invite.
                                        https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Preload-attachments-for-a-Skype-for-Business-meeting-fd3d9f9d-b448-4754-b813-02e49393f251%C2%A0
                                        It is not plan for SfB on promise.
                                        This feature make sense with Skype Room System v2 also, so as customer on promise, I can confirm it will be great if engineers could reconsidere this point.

                                        • Allow PSTN attendee to Skype Meeting Broadcast

                                          I have many customer who using Skype Meeting Broadcast and it work well, However they are looking for PSTN attendee to allow for audio part of meeting.
                                          Because most of there attendees are on remotely.

                                          Regards
                                          Balu Ilag

                                          • Gallery View Size Options:

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