    2. 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.

    3. 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…

    7. 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'')

    9. 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.

    10. Meeting reporting for attendees

      617051993407607
      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.

    11. Slack integration

      Do whatever is needed to make Skype for Business work not just Skype. Also allow user to initiate call directly with a Skype user from Slack channel not just setup a call the other person has to click on to be on the call. For example /skype <skype_username> opens the Skype for Business desktop app and launches the call automatically. The current process of opening a web browser to create the session and then other users have to click the link in Slack to join is cumbersome and inefficient.

    12. Option to auto answer video calls & screen shares with/without white list.

      The ability to white list accounts so when they call you it will auto answer the video call and/or screen share. This would be very useful for conference room or similar setups.

    14. Breakout rooms - make it possible for small groups to meet within a larger one.

      If we have a large meeting, it is helpful to break into small groups for periods of time and then return to the larger group. Consider the ability to create breakout rooms where people can chat among themselves and then come back to the main room.

    16. Adjust volume for individual participants

      Hi - very often there is an important conference call where some users are blaring loud and others you can hardly hear. Please add volume controls for individual users.

    17. Skype meeting can't been inserted into the outlook meeting invite which was already scheduled. Please add this feature to outlook.

      Once you send a meeting invite without a Skype link in the outlook 365 one can't add a Skype meeting link to the meeting invite later the way we could add a Skype meeting link for a new meeting invite. Can you please provide a command button to insert Skype meeting link to already scheduled meeting invite.

    19. 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)...

    20. Add a green screen background effects option to Skype

      Web cam meetings are great, but the background for many meetings looks tacky and unprofessional.

      Please add a feature so that when one has a 'green screen' background users can use a photo as their background. You can do it realtime on the Mac using CamTwist (free) and on the PC using SparkoCam ($20). If you record videos try using Snagit or Camtasia as they have good support and are relatively inexpensive for post production work.

      If you cannot afford a real green screen background ($50 from B&W for a 10' * 12' drape), you can even use an single…
