  1. Push QoS settings (DSCP 46 and COS 5) to non domain clients from Lync/Skype Servers

    Push QoS settings (DSCP 46 and COS 5) to non domain clients from Lync/Skype Servers. Example: Like the conferencing policy (ports) are pushed from Lync/Skype server to all clients.

    • Invoke a call me at method when network quality issues are detected by client

      Invoke a call me at method when network quality issues are detected by client

      Invoke a call via work method when network quality issues are detected. i.e. during a conference, or 1:1, if the client detects a network quality issue, prompt the user "we notice you are having network quality issues, would you like to continue the call from a telephone?" Clicking yes invokes the call me at feature, prompts user for telephone number...the audio for the conference continues on the PSTN, bypassing the network issues that were detected.

      • Analytics and Call Quality Dashboard - Suggested Improvement

        The Call Quality Dashboard provides an overall view of call quality but cannot drill down to the individual user level. The Analytics and Session Reports have those details, but they are not tied together. I want to be able to pull a CQD summary of all bad calls and use it to identify the individual users. CQD should flow into Analytics so I can quickly identify problem areas down to user level without having to rely on users to report the problem and open a help desk ticket.

        Here's my ideal flow:

        1. Open CQD and identify problem areas. Include…

        • Only record over certain sound level

          Like TeamSpeak or Discord does, you should include an option to only record the voice from microphone if the sound level exceeds a certain level. So that Sykpe is not recording everything and transmitts it to the call. Which in our case results in very noisy calls with keyboard strokes and general office sounds in the background all the time.

          • Should have the delivered and read time in skype for the conversation.

            If the delivered and read time is shown, people could easily manage to get rid of the tension if the message was delivered or not.

              • Help - the call-in numbers are not working!

                I was trying to host a meeting this morning, and no one could enter the call. The phones all cut off after 30 sec to a minute. Didn't hear anything.
                Have another call in 30 minutes, and no other way to contact you to help fix the problem!

                  • There should be a set of Skype for Business servers in South Africa because the free Skype has better quality due to server location.

                    The Skype for Business servers like Office 365 and CRM Online for South Africans appear to be in the Netherlands versus free or personal Skype appears to be local because the quality of the free product is superior. It does not make sense that paying customers quality is less then free services. When will Microsoft establish Office 365, CRM & Skype for Business servers in South Africa?

                      • Just get the connection work!

                        What a nightmare: 10+ people on skype call (15th Feb 10-11:30CET) from different locations. In VDN connection between poor to non-existing, even though on cable and no picture. Also BIR dropped off several times and all other locations struggled. Really, extremely frustrating as this is a reoccuring thing and makes our lives inefficient.

                          • Fix SFB in XenDesktop environment where SFB is running on the client as well

                            When using Skype for Business inside a XenDesktop VM desktop whilst having Skype for Business running on my laptop desktop there is a constant ringing sound when i make a call from the Skype for Business in the XenDesktop VM desktop.

                            Can you fix this?

                            i have not had any issues with other IM platforms.

                              Would be great if the output from the Call Quality dashboard summary statistics could be downloaded - currently this available for the detailed reports (which for some reason only shows a summary of the calls, and the summary view has all the details - maybe good to sort that out too)

                              • Better audio hardware

                                1) It'd be great to have broadcast quality audio, similar to IP-DTL (IP Down The Line).
                                2) Most of this issue is rooted in the heterogeneous hardware environment that a SFB conference has to deal with; echoey boardrooms, table microphones that pick up every thump, bad laptop mics, etc.
                                3) For common / shared spaces, active echo cancellation and beam-forming microphones might help focus on speakers
                                4) Discourage the use of traditional conference room table mics as they pick up a tremendous amount of physical noise from participants
                                5) Encourage the development/use of individual user mics that reject / isolate…

                                • ability to check call quality for skype for business online

                                  There should be an option for a user to connect to a remote server that skype hosts dedicated to checking for call quality. There should be four regions. North, West, East, and South when talking about the united states. The server or servers should be located in each of these regions. Then the user should be able to choose which region they would like to test and make a connection with a virtual host and be able to check their quality per region.
