    1. Restrict guest to see participants' photos

      Customer raised concern that internal profile pictures are presented to external non-federated parties during conference calls. Is there any way to restrict guest to see photos in Skype Meeting App?

    3. Please add "blur background" to the video options in Skype for Business.

      Hi I think it would be good to include an option of "Blur background" in video settings in Skype for Business, specially now that there are so many people working from home.

    4. gallery

      Increase the number of people visible in gallery view - useful to see everyone on the video call (advantage of zoom over skype)

    5. See colleages while presenting

      In Skype for business when I share a presentation (share desktop or share window) I cannot see the other meeting attendee's... Why? Is there a way I can do this as it is key that I see the others and their reactions. It is possible on other platforms

    6. Turn Off Mute Announcements!!!

      Provide the ability to turn off the mute announcement “Your line has been muted. To unmute press *6”. This message means that you miss a significant amount of the meeting audio. If you don’t need the message using PC microphone then why have it for dial in? At the very least make the message short (e.g. Muted, Unmuted)

    7. Display meeting PIN in "Location"

      When you create a new Skype meeting, put the PIN in the "Location" so it can be viewed without opening the meeting. Right now it auto-populates with "Skype meeting" which isn't as helpful.

    8. An option to record how names can pronounced

      Can you add an option to record how I want my name pronounced when entering a meeting, so i do the recording? Skype for business can't pronounce my name and it is something embarrassing when everyone laughs as it tries to pronounce it but if there is an option for me to record my name pronunciation then that would work.

    13. User Defined Announcements

      Create radio buttons to allow for users side meeting configuration to use Tones, Names or None for entry and exit announcements.

      Would also be good to set options for entry and exit, exit only or entry only announcements.

    14. Make Skype for Business more like Zoom!

      Skype for Business is not good. We are forced to use it because we use Outlook and it is free. It does not announce people joing the meeting. It's call back feature does not work good. Some people want to view the presentations or shared screens but want to dial in and not use the computer.

      To try to set meetings using Outlook is impossible. The text shared to customers is poor. Sending invites is poor. All in all, it is poor. Copy Zoom or even WebEx and life would be better

      The list goes on and on. It is…

    16. Hide the participants names during a meeting because of confidentiality

      My idea is to add a new option in Skype For Business, in order to help and simplify the work of manya many colleagues.
      Effectively, we would need an option that could hide the participants name during a conference call/a meeting. The point is that the joiners shouldn't see each others names because of confidentiality. However the presentator could have his name seen by the others and shhould be able to present his desktop.
      The point of this option is to simplify our work because we wouldn't have to call each person one by one: this option would help us…

    17. Hold/resume when switching between multiple meetings is sometimes undesirable and should be able to be configured.

      In some cases I WANT to listen to two meetings at once, the auto-hold when switching between multiple meetings is nice if that is what I want, but an auto-mute, or even ability to turn this off entirely would be preferable.

    20. Add setting to disable the Gallery popup that appears when joining meetings.

      The gallery popup appears over every meeting. I have to minimize it every time and I cannot find a setting to permanently remove the Gallery.
