      • Make Skype for Business the same as Skype

        I don't understand why 2 clients have been made for this, especially when both names are so similar, makes things very complicated.

        I think all the features that separate Skype for Business and Skype should be on one program! OR all contacts should be allowed to speak with each other with no restrictions.

        Skype for Business should have 1 thing extra which would be to be a presenter (meaning you can share files and screen with all other users but regular skype users can't share theirs) and it should be the account type that you pay for.

        Currently there is…

          • Customize My Locations

            There is a drop down box to add your location (even says "My Custom Locations") however there is no way to Add and Customize this list so you don't have to constantly retype your various locations --- why have a drop down then??

              • emoji/emoticons

                why can't we just use the emojis that are available for apple? i miss the old animated ones and these are a bit difficult to understand and read.
                so i propose borrowing the emojis from apple....

                            • Make Skype for Business more like Skype

                              I've been trying to push Skype for Business in our company that currently uses Skype seeing as how we can no longer manage Skype through an admin portal online, but there's just too many differences that make Skype for Business unusable:

                              1. Keep the same running chat history for each user instead of saving each individual conversation in Outlook history. Frankly, this is more confusing than it is helpful. If others find it a good idea, maybe there can be a choice on how chat history is dealt with.

                              2. Make it so Skype conversations can add Skype for Business…

                                    • Create a URI Scheme for Skype for Business supported by all clients

                                      The skype: URI is a great and easy way to start an audio or video call, create a conference and sending instant messages, and can be used in Windows, IOs and Android. There is nothing a good as it for Skype for Business.

                                          Can you make the yellow 3 icons for Away, Off work, and Be Right Back different colors? It's not easy to know which of the 3 the status really is.
