  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.

    • 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…

      • 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

        • Update Skype for Business SCOM Management pack

          Please update SCOM management pack to correct built-in defects

          1) Pool State view, detail tab
          There are many properties that can never display as 'Monitored'
          Many properties show NOT monitored, even if all features are enabled and deployed.

          Example Security property has NO monitors that target the class (there are roll-up monitors rolling up nothing)

          2) Update the 'Dial In Conferencing' Performance counter AND Synthetic transaction
          a) Separate the PSTN into individual 'Dial In Conferencing' Performance counters (and resulting synthetic transactions)

          NOTE: Large customers typically have multiple PSTN numbers setup
          Businesses need visibility to know which number is down

          • Allow the ability to add a term to the Skype spell check dictionary.

            Skype continually changes a specific term that is used lots in my day to day business. I would like the ability to add this term as a valid term to the skype spell check dictionary.

                  We use only the Q&A web app and need to have the total number of attentees during.

                  The Q&A Report gives us all the questions and answers but we have no way of knowing how many people actually attended the Q&A meeting.

                          We would like to set the language of Skype for Business missed calls display as the user’s Skype for Business display language instead of the original missed call’s language. Could that be possible in the future?

                          • Being able to puase the video stream recording

                            The use case here is that you have a broadcast meeting where part of the content is confidential or a Q and A session that you do not want included as part of the recording. At the moment there is no ability to pause the recording for a part of the meeting that you do not want to be included.

                                    • Ability to report on users sign-in and sign-off times

                                      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:
