    2. remote

      Please deprecate Lync/Skype PowerShell module and instead adopt Exchange/Exchange Online style PowerShell remoting in full.

      Requiring a PowerShell module for Lync/Skype is just annoying when Exchange/Exchange Online remoting works perfectly without any local tools.

      Thanks.

    3. Allow ablility to turn off offline messaging

      Allow CsImConfiguration cmdlet to be available to Office 365 tenant admins so we can turn off offline messaging like on-premise users can.

    4. Make "IMWarning" function same as "EnableArchivingDisclaimer"

      "IMWarning" when set, is backwards for needed function. It warns the person who is about to start IMing that their own stuff will be archived- and they need to warn the other person. This is how "EnableArchivingDisclaimer" (for federation partners, from edge server) works. For example, lets say out legal department must archive, but no one else in the firm. When Mary in accounting IM's with Legal, she needs to be warned that, unlike the rest of the company, Legal will be saving everything she says. There is no functionality for that currently.

    5. SfB Online Policy creation via GUI and application to AD Groups

      Allow admins to create/customise global policies (Conf/Client etc) via the GUI (Similar to how you can in Intune) and apply them to users via group membership in AD.

    7. Admin functionality to check the privacy relationships for each user

      Users put so much effort to check the privacy relationships for their own, so it would be great if admins can check it via admin center or PowerShell.

    8. Cloud Voicemail - Change "Call Answer Rules" default policy

      I was wondering if there's a way to change the default "Call Answer Rules" for all new and existing users?

      I am able to change it per user with the powershell command:

      Set-CsOnlineVoicemailUserSettings -Identity sip:email@domain.com

      -CallAnswerRule VoicemailWithTransferOption -TransferTarget 555-555-5555

    9. Enable reports to be run by country code (usage location)

      As a global company, the ability to run reports on usage by country code (or usage location) is important for analysis and budgeting. Currently, reports can only be run for the entire tenant activity which is too broad.

    10. Ability to enable enterprise voice in cloud and on-prem on a user with a single command

      When a user is cloud-homed and using CloudPBX with on-prem PSTN, the user has to be moved back to on-prem, enable enterprise voice, move back to o365 and enable enterprise voice there as well.

      Would be great if there's an option to set this without moving the user between pools.

    12. Persistent Chat Categories

      It is only possible to decide wether to let users create rooms or not.

      I want to grant the ability to create private chatrooms to everyone. The ability to create public chatrooms should be limited to a certain group of users.

      Please make the permission management of persistent chat creators more granular.

    14. Warning for Closed Federation and Skype Meeting Broadcast

      I recently unknowingly blocked our company from broadcasting using Skype Meeting Broadcast by setting our Skype settings to closed federation (only allow specific domains). I didn't realize I had to add MS domains per https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Set-up-your-network-for-Skype-Meeting-Broadcast-dfa736b9-4920-4f48-b8c0-b5487ec6086f?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US. It would be nice if the Portal had warned me of this when switching to closed federation, especially since Skype Meeting Broadcast is enabled on our tenant.

    16. New Process of Number Porting should be documented on Skype admin center

      Currently we are submitting port order from Skype admin center and new process is not mentioned there - (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Phone-number-management-)
      Its very helpful to add this information on Skype admin center, so we can directly follow it.

      Skype for Business Admin Center > Voice > Phone Numbers

      Add a description field so that we can identify the function of certain numbers. For example, allows you to identify between a backdoor and primary number.

    19. Need ability to create custom Contact Cards templates

      In our company, we wanted to have the ability to add the Office Location to the contact card pop that you get when you hover over a user. Currently it only shows the Department and Job Title. You have to click the down arrow to see the full contact card to see the Office Location.

      I've seen others on here who want to show the EmployeeID, Phone Number, and other custom fields.

      It would be nice if admins could create a template with the desired fields to show up on both the full contact card and the hover over card…

    20. Added a parameter to the conferencing policy to disable co-authoring.

      Added a parameter to the conferencing policy to disable co-authoring.

      More generally if you add a function, added a method to disable it.
