  1. Office 365 user should be able to access consumption billing without having a SfB calling plan

    Consumption billing should be available for users who are not on a SfB calling plan.

    For Example, One of our users in in the office on only 2 afternoons per week. We want them to be able to use a phone whilst in the office however, to do so, they need to have a Cloud PBX subscription and a domestic calling plan. This users need to use the phone is limited but we still need a full subscription.
    It would be better if they could participate on a pay as you go basis by using the consumption billing to cover…

    • How do we set audio\video and record options to disabled by default for any new provisioned S4B user ?

      We have bandwidth limitations so would like to disable audio & video and the ability to record by default for any new provisioned S4B user. We only want them to be able to use the IM feature. How do we do that without having to run a Powershell script on a regular basis ? Is there a 'plan' or template where these setting can be maintained and inherited by new provisioned accounts ?

      • You shouldnt be able to sign into multiple devices simultaneously.

        You shouldn't be able to sign into multiple devices simultaneously.

        Currently I am logged in on my development surface, my workstation in the office and on my phone. Sometimes I get a message on my cell phone but not on my desktop. Or if I see the message show up on my phone and I try to respond on my surface the end user says it just sends them emails and not an I'm. Also skype calls ring where it wants and not on the device I'm actually using.

            • Allow test broadcast for future broadcast without closing out the meeting

              We tested the meeting, but now it's ended and we can't use again. We already sent out links, so now we'll have to retract.

              • Azure deployments of Skype for Business deployments

                Until we are able to fully move to Skype for Business online, we need the ability to have a supported deployment of Skype for Business hosted within Azure. At the very minimum a single Persistent Chat pool for the rest of the on premise deployments to connect to.

                  • "Working Elsewhere" Status according to Calendar

                    For people on the road (especially consultants), the "working elsewhere" status in the calendar will default Skype for Business as "Available". However, working Elsewhere does not necessarily meant that you are available. It would be great to add another status to Skype for Business to represent the "Working Elsewhere" properly.

                    • Web scheduler info to be viewed on Desktop software

                      I have to schedule video conferences via the web scheduler, it would greatly assist if the desktop software show these meeting in the "Meetings" tab. The desktop software is normally open where the web scheduler is a hassle to get into.

                            on this page on the MS website it clearly indicates that Skype for Business is included in the ProPlus offering, but it is not.

                            • Desktop Sharing from internal Skype from Business app to external app of Skype(personal) Should Directly work from App itself

                              Desktop Sharing from Skyp from Business to outside of Skype People Should Directly work from App itself rather then sending a meeting from outlook to other person and wait until he/she understands how to connect through the meeting. Not every person is technical to understand.

                              Make it simple. It will help a lot and people love to use it.

                                • Skype name

                                  The new laws and terms that Microsoft created for Skype will lead to the destruction of the Skype.

                                  One of them is "Skype name"

                                  Microsoft Co. thinks sign up with E-mail or Phone number are easier than old sign up way; He thought wrong.

                                  Many of users need Skype account with Skype name, they don't want to share their E-mails or Phone numbers, Skype did the same thing earlier. Many of small businesses and startups need a Skype name to connect with their customers but now, they can't.

                                  Although this option is unavailable now but we want to enable again.

                                    Have the ability to add Skype Contacts to the Office 365 directory for all employees to use, in the same manner you can add email contacts. When adding a contact to the Office 365 Directory, there is a way to specific an SMTP address, but not a SIP address.

                                    • Problème de statut dans Skype Entreprise Basic après la modification d'un rendez-vous Outlook

                                      Bonjour, lorsque je rajoute un rendez-vous dans mon calendrier Outlook, mon statut dans Skype Entreprise Basic change automatiquement de Disponible à Occupé. Mais lorsque je modifie ce rendez-vous et je change mon statut dans mon calendrier Outlook d'Occupé à Disponible, Skype Entreprise Basic ne prend pas en compte ce changement. Mon statut dans Skype Entreprise Basic reste sur Occupé. Je dois le modifier moi-même manuellement.

                                      • Allow longer company name on phone ports

                                        Consider increasing the Company Name field length on the phone number port screen for Skype Online. It is currently limited to 25 characters and this is problematic for long company names or companies that have merged with others that have names like "Example Enterprises / Everyday Solutions". Even though the form says the name is not used for the port, I've found through many test ports that the name is often used to help resolve discrepancies or issues and by having the name truncated the port automatically gets rejected.

                                        • Skype for Business Basic standalone alongside O365 Pro Plus

                                          On shared computers there's a serious issue with Skype for Business Basic 2016. When O365 Pro Plus 2016 is installed (without Lync/Skype for Business) Skype for Business Basic standalone client will not autostart on logon even though the option is selected under preferences.
                                          An example:
                                          A single shared computer is used by several people. All the users need to use Skype for Business but only some might need Pro Plus. O365 Pro Plus is installed without the SFB and SFB is deployed separately (with <Product ID="SkypeforBusinessEntryRetail"> setting in config.xml). So the former users do not have Pro Plus licenses assigned…
