        • Audio button is disabled for PPT presentation attached video with SFB client on RDS/Citrix XenDesktop server

          Audio button is disabled for PPT presentation attached video with SFB client on RDS/Citrix XenDesktop server. It is working normally on PC client, But we know it is known issue that audio could not be enabled for video attached in PPT when we do presentation via SFB client on RDS/Citrix XenDesktop server.

          This feature is very importance for us. We hope that Microsoft product team fix it for next CU7 release.

          Thanks!

              • Time-boxed calls

                The ability to time-box a call. But rather than just ending the call, Skype (or Cortana?) can chime in to remind everyone that the call has gone over the allocated time.

                • Provide Swagger/OpenAPI specification for UCWA

                  UCWA is extremely powerful, but tends to have a steep initial learning curve and startup cost. Provising swagger/openAPI documentation would significantly reduce the startup costs of a UCWA project, allowing developers to use codegen tooling again UCWA.

                              • SFB Mobile App, while phone is asleep, should wake up from incoming call and IM.

                                SFB Mobile App, while phone is asleep, should wake up from incoming call and IM. Otherwise people would miss their important business call. Just like whatsapp and good old gsm phone behaviour. Many customers are very surprise when they found out this issue. Never did they expect the App didn't handle this properly. Very sad.

                                • Office Graph Integration

                                  We'd love to interface with skype information through microsoft graph. I had read a year or so ago that skype would be integrating soon, but have yet to find any information about a solid deadline. We'd like to be able to access a user's status, as well as set the user's status.

                                  We are implementing an organization in/out board and we'd like to hook into skype via microsoft graph to handle the status messages.

                                    • Add user's local time and time zone to user info window

                                      What would it take to show what time it is for the person you are chatting to. Example: someone in Austin, TX talking to someone in India. You could put their local clock/time zone up in the user info box that is at the top of the chat window.

                                      Thanks
