  1. Include URL and PSTN dial in details for Skype meetings started from Surface Hub.

    For ad hoc Skype meetings which are started from the Surface Hub, enable the ability to show and share PSTN conferencing (dial in) and meeting connection URL details. So it essentially includes all the details a user would see in a meeting scheduled via Outlook. Share details via email.

    • In SRSv2, play a sound when you tap or move the volume slider.

      This would allow you to confirm that the speaker is working and test the volume before others join so you don't blow everyone's ears out if it's super loud.

      • Allow PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) control of cameras

        Allow members of a S4B meeting to remotely control cameras with pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) capability so that remote participants can "look around" a large room or zoom in on a person who is speaking. This was possible 10 years ago with Polycom devices and would be great now, especially for larger conference rooms. Ideally, S4B would detect that the camera was PTZ capable and automatically display up/down/left/right arrows and zoom in/out buttons.

        • Add additional events for SRS application

          Improve SRS monitoring for analyze device usage - for example event for content sharing started, audio/video started, projection with input HDMI started, etc...
          This could be used in OMS monitoring and generating reports.

          Thank you!

          • Add the possibility to have 'Favourites' in the Skype Room System console

            When having several meeting rooms, and in most cases the participants just wants to call one of the other rooms, it could be convenient to have a 'Favorites' list on the Skype Meeting Room devices

              • documentation of Skype Room Systems must be ACCURATELY protrayed.

                licensing is completely confusing and inaccurate - please update.

                • Skype Room Systems- Support Interactive Display Functionality for Whiteboarding

                  We currently have touchscreen interactive displays (Sharp Aquous Boards) in our conference rooms but we would lose the touchscreen functionality of the room's display with the new Skype Room Systems.

                  Specifically, we would lose the ability to whiteboard or annotate over power point presentation using the room's touch display during Skype meetings if we deployed the new Skype Room Systems. This is huge barrier preventing us from purchasing and deploying the new SRS.

                  • Having the conversations function like GroupMe or WhatsApp or even iMessage

                    The reason for this is

                    A.) Nobody likes how the conversation gets deleted at random intervals and a new conversation is started.. this just separates the record into different threads which are difficult to trace.

                    B.) It'd be nice to select which chat room you're in, and be able to see what the official name of the room is (specified by the rooms creator)

                    C.) it would also be nice to be able to mute the group notifications for times other members of the team are speaking in the room but you do not want to be disturbed.

                        • Option to hide appointment details

                          We appreciate the feature of one touch meeting join on SfB meeting devices but in certain areas it's mandatory to have the option to hide the meeting topic. This is mandatory in cases where e.g. HR is using the conference device and where we need to prevent that unauthorized third parties are getting unwanted information by checking the conference list on the device. In those cases only the person who scheduled the meeting should be display instead of having the purpose of the meeting shown as well. This could be done by marking the meeting as private.

                              The Surface Hub should be able to at a minimum see and ideally participate in a Skype for Business White Board session which is initiated by a Skype for Business client and enabled for multiple endpoints to collaborate on the same whiteboard.

                                  Very dangerous if staff are remote or by them selves

                                  • Cant make a call and present locally!

                                    How about in the Smart or Crestron LRS and SRS you can make a phone call to join a bridge and have the ability to present locally? Currently this cannot be done. Use case would be a online meeting (not skype) and a traditional PSTN conference bridge (again not skype). You join the call using the LRS/SRS then plug your Laptop into the HDMI to present the online meeting inside the room.

                                    • Expire unacknowledged meetings

                                      Allow SRSv2 and SHub to cancel meetings if they dont start within a configurable timeperiod (e.g. 10mins).

                                      We have fitted SRS and SHub to all our rooms, users love the capabilities, but become frustrated if someone has booked the room but not turned up, as it will not accept another meeting request. Although there are ways to work around this, users find them unintuitive.
                                      The best solution would be to be able to set a timeout, then if a meeting has not been started already alert users in the room, then 60 seconds later have the SRS decline the meeting…

                                      • Open up S4B Room System App to more devices and docks

                                        Currently, only a couple of manufacturers make 'Skype room system' docks. The app is available within the store, however doesn't function on any other devices. Allow users to use the app on other devices/docks and make it easier for Administrators to get SRS deployed.
