    • you need to not harbor fascist furries who attack business people

      you are harboring a gang of cyber terrorists based at www.kiwifarms.net that has been stalking me for over a year. they are ripping off my media, altering it and defaming me. they have a group chat they persistently add me to. these accounts should be banned and if skype insists on protecting their right to harass me, i can only sue skype for negligence.

      there are 31 abusers in a group currently named

      this is the current "content" notice it includes a ripped off video they're spreading around.

      • Persistent Chat notifications

        Issue: With chat room Notification alerts turned on, when you’re inside a chat room and even if it’s the active window, you will still receive notification alerts any time a user posts a message. You can be posting a chat message inside the room at that moment, and will receive notification alert pop-ups in the corner/side of the screen alerting me of a new message. This doesn’t follow the same behavior as Instant Messaging, as you won’t receive an alert if the window is active or peer to peer session is open. This has resulted in users turning off notifications,…

        • why do I need to login twice before I can get to the Recording Menu

          Every morning I have to login twice before I get to the Recording Menu
          This is ridiculous

          I have been asking for someone to look into this since Feb 2017

          PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE
          you are Microsoft, not some two bit software company

          • Multi Party IM Chat between SFB and Regular Skype Contacts.

            Allow Multi Party IM Chats between SFB Clients and Regular Skype Contacts.

            For us, as large enterprise business, our IM Solutions are a balance between meeting customer requirements and adhering to government regulations.

            Internally we are an Office 365 tenant and use SFB Online, however some external clients use regular Skype accounts, therefore we need to run another separate solution for clients who are not SFB users. Our current solution not only covers desktop clients but internally developed monitoring and audit functions, something which is possible by default with SFB.

            In our view, having more functionality between the 2 solutions…

            • start meeting once all are available

              You want to have a meeting with 3 people and all need to be present. Implement something similar to 'tag for status change' that works across all the people you want to meet with. It pings you all when ALL of you have status = Available

              • IRC Connector

                We use Skype for Business to collaborate on open source projects. Using Skype as an IRC connector would mean that we wouldn't need to run IRC clients alongside Skype. It seems to me that if support for this is never offered, we may have to migrate fully to IRC.

                    • Combine meetings.skype.com with Web Scheduler (sched.lync.com), OWA and meet.lync.com

                      Competitors have a great web based experience for creating and managing meetings, but Skype's is so convoluted. Right now it is really a mess between the free meetings.skype.com service, the old web scheduler (sched.lync.com), OWA and meet.lync.com.

                      If I go to the (free) meetings.skype.com service and try to sign in with my SfB account it tells me I cannot access it, because I already have a (paid for) business account. This makes no sense.

                      Let me have a place to go to from which I can see planned meetings and edit them, create new meetings, get the link so that…

                        • A new option in Skype Meeting to have Skype call the host and have the host initiate the meeting with one click.

                          A new option in Skype Meeting to have Skype call the host and have the host initiate the meeting with one click. This could be configurable at the individual host level wherever they want to host the meeting from (their mobile phones, conference phone etc). Even participants can have the option where at the time of accepting meeting invite they could indicate the Skype to call them back on their preferred number. So that if they are not in front of computer at the time of meeting, they still don't miss the meeting.

                            When creating a chat with a group of users the name displays as Conversation (6 Participants) If we create several of these chats we have no way to determine what group is what and need a way to determine chat groups.

                              • set-csmeetingconfiguration DesignateAsPresenter does not work

                                Running set-csmeetingconfiguration -DesignateAsPresenter None does not work for public meetings. This instantly makes all users within the organization start out as presenters. This could potentially cause issues and I worry that someone will either on purpose or accidently take presentation rights away from the organizer. Public meetings can't be done away with as people like to memorize the conference id and use it for dial in only meetings.

                                    • Group Chat Functions

                                      Okay,

                                      So imagine an app that allowed you to join multiple users to a group chat that remains alive, even if you accidentally exit the chat. Imagine a notification popped up to let you know that the conversation is still happening!? Imagine an app that would allow you to check and be involved in chat groups, on TWO media devices, at THE SAME TIME.

                                      Can't believe this is a paid for service, giving the rouse of group chat functionality, without the actual ability, or an easy to find support number.

                                        • Persistent chat - pChat Participants number not updated after failback

                                          Why after a Failover and a Failback of a failed Skype for Business Pool, without any interruption on PChat Services or CMS, the pChat Participants is not correct, some users can see several participants other can see other number, the information is not updated, in some cases this could take 24 hours to be updated, only after a restart of the pChat services the participants’ information is correct updated. Is Possible update faster the Participants presence after a failback without restart the services of all PChat servers in the pool?
