    1. PSTN usage report has not implemented PSTN data for CCE scenario

      Since CCE is based on Microsoft cloud PSTN deployment, it should be implemented into PSTN usage report. Please improve this and implement PSTN data for CCE scenario via PSTN usage report via Office 365 SFB admin center.

      We are looking forward to receiving the news from Microsoft Roadmap. Thanks.

    4. broadcast audio and video message internally

    5. Power BI connector for reporting, ex: Calls in Queue, and general reporting

      It would be nice to be able to pull various reporting from Skype for Business into Power BI. This would be EPIC.

    10. Sort Front-End Pools / SBAs alphabetically in Skype Control Panel

      We have more than 10 FE Pools and hundred of SBAs and they are all listed in order when they were added into topology. Alphabetical order would be LOGICAL and USEFUL, otherwise it is nearly impossible to find proper pool (for example when you want to move user to another pool)

    11. Make possible to move only one RG with Export-CsRgsConfiguration

      Hello ,
      We should be able to move only one RG from a pool to another using this cmdlet, but this is not possible at the moment.
      This is what the technet article says about the source parameter: “Identity of the Response Group instance whose configuration settings are being exported”and it is confusing because I thought at first that you can move only one RG by using the specific identity.

      For example:

      Export-CsRgsConfiguration -source "service:ApplicationServer:Lync-DE02.schaeffler.com/7dff23f1-2ad8-456f-ad30-bf45dfd87244" -Filename "C:\Users\admmozapul\Desktop\RGS.zip"

      The identity of the RG I want to move is:
      Identity : service:ApplicationServer:Lync-DE02.schaeffler.com/7dff23f1-2ad8-456f-ad30-bf45dfd87244

      We should be able to do that.

    12. The ability to control the skype for business client settings from the Office 365 portal.

      The ability to control the skype for business client settings from the Office 365 portal would be great.
      Allowing the client to suck down the settings once they have signed in.

    14. Manage Skype for Business remotely via powershell without remoting

      The same way Active Directory commandlets can be deployed toany server without any need to use remoting or other fancy stuff, it should be possible to deploy Skype commandlets and use them from any server and administer the Skype environment.

    16. Allow admins and/or users to see logged in sessions

      I recently had an issue where my status was always 'Available', even when I completely signed out of SfB. I was forced to change my domain password to resolve the issue.

      It would be veriy nice to be able to see a list of what is supposedly signed into SfB, and log all, or individual sessions out.

    17. Allow custom maximum number of computers or devices allowed

      We just migrated from a hosted Skype on-premises instance to Skype Online and learned there is a hard 8 computers or devices limit. Some of our users keep hitting this limit because they work in Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations and often have multiple tabs or browsers open. When they open their 8th D365FO session, they're kicked out of their SfB fat client. This is making communication and work difficult. There is an option available on-prem to increase this limit, but it's not available online.

    18. Auto-populate Skype clients with AD users and groups

      We need to be able to auto-populate Skype clients with AD users and groups. This is a necessary requirement for any enterprise product. If you can't add AD users and groups to Skype administratively then you can't call this an enterprise product. This is a deal breaker for our organization. I'm disappointed.

      What a bummer.

    19. Installing WMF5 causes ocspowershell endpoint to break

      I've installed WMF5 on two Skype for Business 2015 CU1 enterprise pools. On both pools, this caused new pssessions to https://server.fqdn/ocspowershell to break.

      Skype for Business is not listed as an incompatible product (here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/wmf/productincompat).

      The error I get after installing WMF5 and creating a new PSSession to the ocspowershell endpoint:

      writeErrorStream : True
      PSMessageDetails :
      Exception : System.Management.Automation.Remoting.PSRemotingTransportException: Connecting to remote server placeholder.server.fqdn failed
