    1. Resizing White Board to fit the screen

      Be able to switch White Board size: normal / fit screen because of different screen resolutions of participants and in particular when presenter is using a room system.

    3. Option to disable IM in Skype

      Since some plans do not include the ability to archive IM conversations, centrally, I would like to suggest that MS provide an option to some how disable internal IM, but still be able to use the Web/Audio conferencing. This way organizations who may have security/retention policies about archiving communication, can still use Skype without any concerns.

    4. Options to play a video in Skype Broadcast meeting. .

      It is a much needed feature to play a video either embedded in a PPT or separately . There must be other options except only PowerPoint ,where members can play a short video during presentation.

    6. 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.

    8. Persistent Chat Rooms in Skype for Business - Office 365 - it is a business requirement, not a 'nice to have' - a 'must have'.

      We need a way to have a cloud-based O365/Skype for Business persistent chat room system. It has long been possible with an on-premise server - we need to have it in the O365 cloud.

    9. Update statuses to 'Do Not Disturb' or 'Presenting' when sharing secondary monitors

      It may be through design to update the status when only using a primary monitor. Statuses should be updated regardless of any monitor that is shared. There are times where I share a secondary monitor and do not want to be disturbed when I am presenting.

    10. Virtually 'raise your hand' to ask a question in a meeting.

      While in a meeting if someone has a question, and if the presenter/any other person is speaking at the moment, you need to either interfere the person or wait till he/she finishes.
      Instead, it'd be better if you can 'raise your hand' virtually to let the speaker know that you have some queries. The person finishes what he/she has to say and gives you time to speak.

    13. S4B Breakout rooms functionality

      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.

    14. Allow icons in Gallery view to wrap.

      Allow icons in Gallery view window to wrap. Currently there is a lot of wasted space with the line of icons in the middle and blank space above/below. It would be nice to see the pictures expand a bit without needing the full screen view.

    15. more speaker layouts.

      Have you seen the excellent layouts from Pexip? They have various layouts called Auditorium and 21+1 (or similar) and they are nice. The client needs more of these brady bunch/Hollywood squares layouts. We use Skype meetings in my 8,000 person company and this is one of the top complaints with both the desktop and SMART Room clients.


      1. Allow the participant to select their own layout

      2. Or the presenter can select a layout and lock it for everyone (of course you should let participants know when this happens so they don't think it's a bug)

      3. Or the organizer can select a…

    16. Support fully customizable template for Online meeting invitations

      SfB administrator should be able to define a template to be used by all versions of Outlook when creating an Online meeting. Currently the version of Outlook and the platform determine the format and information presented.

    17. Insert PDF files in whiteboard

      Currently, the whiteboard feature allows you to insert image files such as .jpg or .png. However, most of the files that my organization works with are .pdf. I would like to be able to insert a .pdf file so that meeting participants could mark and annotate them just as if they were image files.

      And, yes, I know that I can save every .pdf file as an image file from adobe, but that it a lot of work to re-save every file I wish to collaborate on. It seems like this would be an easy feature to add.

    18. Ability to see who answered what in poll

      Have the option of enabling the presenters to see who voted on the different options in a poll. Poll is great for gathering feedback, but being able to see who voted what will make that feedback actionable for the presenters.

    19. Screen Sharing response time

      Screen Sharing response time is currently quite slow, even with QoS enabled. Systems like gotomeeting, Cisco Webex... bring down the image quality in order to bring smooth presens experience to the attendees. The image quality is not the problem, better to have a non HD image then to see everything 2-4 sec later, thats quit annoying while presentations.

      Please do something again this lack in response time between presenter and attendees.

    20. Can Create Group Chat (can open it like using old SKYPE, no need to re-add members) and have history as usual

      It is very inconvenient to create meeting very time for the same members which need to keep contact everyday without history. And strongly recommend to resume group chat for Business version, otherwise, there is no reasons to use Business version instead of non Business version Skype.
