  1. central management of Skype Groups

    Central management of Skype Groups: admins should be able to create adn push groups to their endusers. it would be ideal if the groups could be tied to Active Directory. so that if a user is in a certain OU or a member of a particular AD Group that they automatically were added to a group in Skype.

      According to Action on Hearing Loss, 70% of deaf people in the UK feel that their deafness prevents them succeeding in the workplace while it's been found that deaf people earn on average £2,000 a year less than hearing people. Skype for Business with Translate would enable us to enter the corporate world with more confidence, armed with the tools to help us interact with global teams and enter jobs otherwise out of our reach. It would be life changing for people like me, who have stayed in lower jobs for the 'safety' of it. I recently pushed myself out…

        • Spam - Give us the ability to block any incoming phone number. Any normal PBX can handle this, why can't Skype for Business handle this

                      Need ability to report on when employees sign-in (log on) and sign-off (log off) of Skype for Business. This will help give a general idea of when employees start and stop their work day.

                          • PowerShell commands to configure Skype meeting delegate

                            As an admin I would like to delegate Skype for Business on behalf of someone else (delegate user A to User B) via PowerShell, instead of doing it manually by using the Outlook client.

                            Please refer to the link below:

                              You must allow for a way to HYPERLINK file and folder locations on a network... Absolutely unacceptable not to be able to do this..
                              I'm very frustrate.

                              This is an absolute necessity for the workplace when you want electronic messaging... This is a basic programming hum that a starting IT engineer can program in.. please Do it now and you will gain many people's approval.

                              • please wait while i transfer your call

                                We would like the option to disable the "please wait while I transfer your call" when using the Auto Attendant.

                                We have had our AA Prompts professionally recorded, and it's not professional to have the "robot" voice say "Please wait while I transfer your call" or "transferring your call to (text option)"

                                We would like a check box to disable this, or an option to record this too.

                                  • Export and automatic email sending possibility of the content of reports and report trees

                                    In CQD we can create nice and very useful reports but their content is not exportable. It would be a great feature if we could export the report's content in a format which could be used in Office programs like PowerPoint presentations. If we could automatically generate and send the reports to the management weekly via email then it would be best! :)

                                    • Publish a Skype recording multiple times with different options

                                      When publishing a recording, the recording changes its reference in the Recording Manager list: the name and location path are changed accordingly to your publishing options

                                      Although the original file remains available in the initial location, could not see it in the Recording Manager list.

                                      Even if you open the temp file “Recording.frd” by Skype for Business Recording Manager, it will also point to the new published file

                                      There doesn't seem to be a way to publish from the original with different options afterwards.

                                      I engaged MS support and they confirmed this gap in the tool, recommend publishing the feature…

                                      • Improvement to animated emoticons

                                        So, I personally love the dancing man animated icon. What if, a user can post 4 of the dancing men in a row, and they each do a letter of the YMCA, instead of the same movement?

                                        • Allow auto attenden or call queues to run without picking up line

                                          I have a number of clients that have live people answer the phones. It seems that SFB is mainly designed around an automated system answering the phone. There's no way I can see to configure a main number to ring multiple phones so live people can pick up. There is a work around, but making the main number a user and then adding the necessary people as delegates, but this is not ideal and uses another license.

                                          I think this is a pretty basic feature that most other phone systems support. Even if there was just a call queue that…
