  1. Skype for business needs functionality to be able to "raise a hand" and sort participant list according to order in which hand was raised.

    Skype for business needs functionality to be able to "raise a hand" and sort participant list according to order in which hand was raised. Needed for managing large meetings and manage interruptions. Would also like to be able to Mute All and selectively Unmute selected participants.

      • Personal Meeting room

        Allow users to have a personal meeting url that doesn't change. Makes things easier for scheduling recurring meetings, etc.

        • Ability for Surface Hub to participate in a Skype for Business Whiteboard session

          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.

            • Option to enable more than one video Gallery view on a Room System

              An option in the portal for a Room System to allow more than 5 active video speakers on the screen. Allowing 2 video gallery view rows to show would be great.

              • File Sharing Pod

                Sometimes we need to get files to the people at a meeting. We always hear "I didn't get that email attachment..." The ability to do peer-to-peer file sharing is WAY better than finding email addresses and sending attachments.

                A popup share that allows Upload from anyone and then a download-Browse... Save operation is the way to go. Click on the file you need and press Download / Save and get the file instantly.

                  • 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.

                    • Allow both LRS screens to display meeting content and allow multiple capture cables

                      Allow LRS to display content on both front of room panels for LRS. This could include application share/whiteboard/presentation as content. Ideally a presenter should be able to select what content is projected on which screen.

                      • Meeting ID

                        In meeting rooms we use an dedicated iPad for each room and do not wand users to login on the SfB for security reasons. There is no other applications, mail etc. on the iPad hence no way of communicating the meeting URL to the iPad.
                        We would like to have a short meeting number eg. 1425 3633 this is a highly valued feture we had on our decommisioned WebEx solution.

                        • Allow administrators to disable themes for Lync(Skype) Room Systems

                          We need to option of disabling the themes on the room systems so that we can be sure that every room system deployed appears the same to any user. It's too easy for a user to change the theme, leaving it with the black and yellow color scheme, which is just terrible.

                            I would like to be able and cast (ChromeCast or Miracast) my Skype over the TV Screen even if it is not Skype ready.

                            So like any application that is cast ready, it would have the "cast" rectangle there on the top right hand side of the screen , like you tube or any other tool.

                              • 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.

                                  • Crestron RL locks up with increased number of participants in scheduled meeting

                                    We are using Crestron RL (one of the Skype Room System) with Office 365 account, which was created based on LRS Deployment Guide.

                                    (2) When the number of participants reaches 31, the touchpanel (TS-1051-C) shows below message about 5 seconds.

                                    (3) At the same time, the icons "Hold Call", "Mute/Unmute Room" & "Speaker Off/On" are not working, and the list of participants disappears from TS-1051-C screen.
                                    (4) The buttons on the right side of TS-1051-C works without any issue.

                                      • skype connect pbx contact to work with skype for business

                                        The Skype Connect service (formerly Skype for SIP) does not work with the Skype for Business client. the Skype Connect contact can be found within the Skype for Business client but the status always shows as "Pending" and if you try to call it the message is "<contact name> is not in service. Please check the number and try again". The Skype Connect service will auto accept any invitation and I suspect this is what may be broken within the Skype For Business client. Fixing this may fix everything. Please fix this as I would like to be able to…

                                        • Control multiple web cameras from one machine in skype broadcast.

                                          Control multiple web cameras from one machine in skype broadcast. Currently I believe you need to set up each cam on separate machine but it would be excellent if there was a way to hook up multiple webcams to one machine to be controlled for multicam experience broadcast.
