        • Not sure messages are delivered and seen by receiver. Better to have some notifications symbol for that

          • Group to Group/Single Person Chat

            Make it possible for a Skype Group to act as a sender of message.
            This way, a privileged user of a group (say group XYZ) will have an option to post a message, to another group or another person, using his User Identity and as well as group XYZ.

            There are certain scenarios, where let's say a decision needs to be come forward from whole team, to the client. So, instead of team member Alice saying 'Whole team agreed to decision XYZ' to the Client Bob, a Skype Group named 'ABC Company' can be utilized to send message.

            • Enable IM sound alerts for favorites but mute every one else

              I'd like to be able to mute IM alerts, but still get alert sounds for contacts in my Favorites group.
              Or maybe even be able to set custom sounds per contact list group

              • Allow Windows 10 focus assist to disable taskbar amber alert

                As this is one of the great principles of focus assist. Getting distracted by constant amber alerts kind of defeats the point.

                • Conversation History just like the Free Skype (Where you can search all conversation on a users window)

                  We are having trouble on tracing for the history via Outlook its a hustle. Can we suggest that we can do the same as the free Skype version where you can search on a users window ALL conversation history.

                    • Feature to control video cropping on Skype Web SDK

                      I want to control outgoing video size in our Skype Web SDK based application. There is "Crop and center my video in meetings" option in Skype meetings app and desktop client, so I want Skype Web SDK to have the same function as this option.

                                          • Bidirectional support for messages containing both LRT and RTL text

                                            I guess this is not a new idea per-se (as can be seen in the linked-at-the-bottom q&a with Microsoft), but previous ideas here are more case specific, so I could not add my vote to them.

                                            Since the general case of bidirectional messages is already well supported in MS and elsewhere, there is no reason for Skype to be different.

                                            Furthermore, while important for the general public, it is much more sorely needed for business applications, where technical terms are almost exclusively in English.

                                            Best regards
