    1. 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.

    5. Skype for Business would be more effective for me if the conversations followed me to each computer rather than starting over.

      With gmail, no matter where I log on my conversation will pick up where I left off. It would be helpful if that would happen here as well .

      We are thinking of using Skype for Business for our corporate use. However there are few Linux users too. Unfortunately they is no client available for Linux. We would like to know when it will be available?

    9. The Anger Emoticon is a blackface trope and should be updated

      The anger emoticon in Skype for business is a callback to blackface humour. Which when put in context is indubitably racist.

      There is very little difference between this video:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRuZkCfQUgw

      and the ‘anger’ emoticon in Skype 4 Business.

      I believe that what the skype emoticon was / should be going for is ‘ashface’ as described here:

      http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AshFace

      Some perspective on blackface:
      http://metro.co.uk/2017/05/31/no-blackface-isnt-a-tribute-or-a-compliment-its-always-offensive-6675054/

      Need more perspective?
      https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/jan/08/boglarka-balogh-blackface-offensive

      I would really like to be contacted about this issue, with anyone who has the ability to affect change.

      I would suggest perhaps a mushroom cloud or steam coming out of the ears.

      Thanks…

    10. Auto reply

      A good idea to my opinion, when you are away, set a message saying you are currently not available and will return their messages/calls as possible.

    12. 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.

    14. Handle SIP CANCEL messages properly to prevent spurious missed calls

      When using single number reach and an incoming call is picked up on a desk phone, the mobile client shows a missed call. The call manager is correctly sending a SIP CANCEL with cause=200 (call completed elsewhere) but Skype for Business ignores this. Please correctly interpret these SIP messages and avoid generating spurious missed calls on the client.

    19. color

      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.
