    1. Comprehension Development Tips for Adult Literacy Tutors

      I read this I think I'm gonna look it up look up look them up on Wikipedia to see what else I can read so I can connect to maybe another historical document or maybe an even a primary source like some you know photographs or other historical websites about them so as I read with my student I could model the reading process by reading out loud which also models fluent reading but I can also stop and do things like self monitoring or to chunk the text and I would chunk the text about every paragraph or so…

          • Saving poll questions so that re-using them in different skype calls with polls would be very helpful!

            It would be a huge improvement for skype for business if the presenter would have the option to save the online poll questions prior to the skype meeting. This would allow to open the poll immediately and would avoid that the presenter needs to write down the questions and possible answers in every skype session again. Sometimes the presenter also schedules some more calls for the same (training) content and needs the same online poll questions in different calls. It would be easy to re-use these poll questions when having the option to save and re-open them.

              • PABX

                You need to explain what facilities are available.
                for example can you replace a 3CX system with Call Queues and Ring Groups, System Management etc.

                • Allow users to paste images directly into IM

                  Allow users to paste images directly into IM

                  Currently, when pasting images in IM
                  - Scenario 1, to (1) person, image is pasted in IM directly
                  - Scenario 2, to more than (1) person, image is added as an attachment

                  Scenario 2
                  After pasting image, users SHOULD see a red dot appear in upper right of the Share Content icon at the bottom of the screen

                  They should left click the icon --> Select MANAGE CONTENT --> Click the EYEBALL icon to view the attached image

                  • You are ignoring SO many threads asking you to fix the escape-key-close-window problem.

                    A cursory search on this site and others show that people have been complaining for a long time about the 'feature' you instituted which 'allows' you to close an IM window by simply hitting the ESC key. I and obviously many thousands of others HATE that feature, and people have been asking for a fix for at least a year. You are ignoring that. Why? It really makes you look bad when you create a feedback site, and then don't pay any attention to that feedback.

                    • Skype Groups or Relationships linked to Outlook e-mail organizing rules

                      Many use outlook rules to organize e-mails based on what company or department the sender is from (example: an e mail from a Finance colleague would get routed from Inbox to a Finance folder). Taking the list of people listed on such kind of rules, and feeding it into Skype in the form of Groups or Relationships would greatly help find common contacts easily in Skype, rather than having to remember everyone´s name to look them up in Skype when you need to reach out.

                        • Sauvegarde des historiques de conversations.

                          Il est très irritant de ne pas pouvoir garder un historique des conversations dans Skype Entreprise !
                          J'utilise un nom de domaine entreprise pour rediriger mes courriels vers gmail et donc je n'utilise pas outlook.
                          Je paie tous les mois Skype entreprise pour partager du contenu avec mes clients, faire mes formations à distance car je ne pouvais pas le faire avec mon skype perso.
                          Maintenant, on me dit que pour garder mes historiques il faut obligatoirement utiliser outlook ?
                          Je ne trouve pas ça normal du tout de pousser sans arrêt à la consommation sur l'utilisation des services Microsoft.

                            • Consider reducing the loops of animated emojis.

                              Currently emojis loop indefinitely, which can be annoying/overkill. Remember we learned that when animated GIFs were brand new. Thanks.

                                • Make Skype for Business accessible for deaf people

                                  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…

                                  • Incorporate Apple's 'Handoff' API to allow Skype conversations to move from MacBook to iPhone

                                    Apple allows third-party apps to take advantage of their Handoff API. Some examples of apps that have added this feature are Air BnB and the New York Times. Is it possible for Microsoft to incorporate this API and allow a Skype conversation begun on a MacBook to transfer to an iPad?

It would be nice to schedule a meeting between 2 conference rooms (maybe room account, equipment account, or user account) and at the time of the meeting, if S4B is running, the meeting is joined by both rooms with no interaction from a person.

                                      • Require User's Permission to be Tagged for Status

                                        There is currently no way for users to prevent themselves from being tagged for status change alerts. This is a privacy intrusion and can cause a burst of unwanted communications all at once. It could also be used for malicious purposes such as stalking. Please develop an option for users to prevent themselves from being tagged for status changes.

                                        • PSTN report in PowerBI

                                          It would be great if the data from PSTN report are accessible from PowerBI to make nice dashboard to follow the consumption.

                                          • Save and send an IM when someone is offline

                                            Save and send an IM when someone is offline. Sometimes you don’t want to send an email or you want to say something like “give me a call when you get in”.
