  1. Title your conversation

    When looking through conversations with peers, it would be useful to name or title a conversation relating to a task or project for example. This would help to recall conversations in a hurry, and pick up on old ones.

    *This should be an optional feature*

      • Please interlink skype for business and Outlook if possible

        Updating info like if a person send us a mail then same notification should be send on IM at least a blink even during Offline..
        So when we login or during online we may come to know we got a mail from that person.

              • iOS Managed Aplication Configuration (MDM)

                Starting with iOS 7. The ability to push remote configuration to apps for iOS was added. This is achieved by an MDM Server (Intune) pushing key value pairs to a MAC compatable app.

                Whilst the functionality has now been added to Intune/SCCM to support this. Skype for Business as far as I am aware doesn't allow this functionality yet. Recently SFB allowed MAM support. It would be great to be able to pre-populate users Skype for business credentials driving down calls to Servicedesks by using MAC.

                    Customers expect that SfB users homed Online will have the same experience as users homed Onprem as it pertains to access control via client policies. Currently, Online policy cmdlets provide only a subset of Onprem policy cmdlets.

                        • Integrate the Two Skypes properly and stop the rot

                          Skype-for-Business isn't Skype. By that I mean this is still Lync and interoperability with Skype is so convoluted and limited as to be unworkable. There are so many issues with it that try to get users to use it now we are on Office 365 is an uphill battle. I won't talk to old Skype users unless they migrate to a MS account, it can't import Skype contacts, it only works half the time (and slowly) when trying to chat with a Skype account, Skype users sometimes can't reply to my S4B, I can't add more than one external user…

                              You may send a message to the wrong contact. In some situations it may be really helpful if you can remove your message from the conversation.

                              • SKYPE FEDERATION & SKYPE ICON

                                It should be possible to connect with people of different organisation without the limitation of Federated services to be switched on by both the parties.

                                This was the same limitation with Lync.

                                If a colleague leaves the organisation A and starts to work for organisation B and if we try to add the colleague as external contact it would fail unless the federation services are turned on by both the organisations.

                                It should be like Normal Skype where by you can add contacts of external companies as well and it would be an individual choice to accept the request or…
