    2. We've just moved to Skype for Business, and it's not good.

      We needed to move to Skype for Business for a number of reasons, GDPR and user management being two of those.

      Unlike regular Skype, chats are a complete and utter disaster, bits and pieces of conversations end up everywhere, full conversations might happen on one device and only some or none of it appears on the user's other devices. Users want to see their actual chats let alone having the option of one endless chat (which is a highly requested feature). People are missing messages from each other which is outrageous and unacceptable.

      You cannot search in chats in SfB…

    3. Selected online, only be online for a selected group, like only superiors or friends

      Selected online, only be online for a selected group, like only superiors or friends.
      When you're at a client you might only want to be online for your superiors or people you want to casually talk to instead of everyone else who will ask for stuff that you dont have time for when at a client

    4. Skype for Business para Smart TV

      Recentemente iniciei um projeto de modernizar as salas de reunião da matriz e filiais da empresa, ao realizar uma analise de preço entre empresas de vídeo conferencia notei que o auto custo do investimento.
      Cheguei então as Smart TVs com Skype, o investimento é relativamente barato, pois necessita apenas do aparelho compatível com uma câmera, a câmera e uma conexão com a internet. Em meu caso que utilizo o Skype for Business idealizei a seguinte estrutura: todas as salas com uma Smart TV e câmera e uma conta Skype for Business, a facilidade de reunir seria extrema dispensando o uso…

    5. Third party dial-in conferencing Providers

      A.s the current list of third party dial-in providers is very limited and not easily added, unless the provider works with Microsoft to become a recommended provider.

      We would suggest that a customizable section be added to the management for Office 365 Skype for Business admin center.

      Have the Import/Export feature allow data that is customizable as well as a custom area similar or added to the Meeting Invitation setup. This way when a user clicks on Skype Meeting from their Outlook client all the proper information for a 3rd party conferencing solution will be added to the meeting request.…

    6. Photo Icon

      It would be good if you could make the photo icon to show whether the contact person is Male or female when the photo is not updated.

    7. the ability to erase emoji as a reaction on a message

      I wish I had the option to delete emoji as a reaction on a message. You can edit the message but you can't edit the reaction to the message.
      if I made a mistake or regrat the emoji I added I can't change it. it's annoying sometimes.

    11. Make Meetings Tab more effective

      Hi, Is there a way you can think of to make Meetings tab that you provided on Skype for Business more effective by -

      Giving right click options to cancel or modify the meeting from there
      Giving left click option to join or go to the calendar app from there
      Giving an option to look future calendars

      Thanks for listening!!

    12. There should be a way to disable the flashing notification when one is in a group chat. It's distracting.

      At my job I need to stay in group chats in case I need to "bounce questions off of people", however when I'm not "bouncing questions" I don't wish to have the constant flashing during others' portions of the conversation, which do not apply to me. Thanks!

    18. Reconnect with settings

      In the cases of connection drop out, there should be the ability to reconnect with the settings of the lost conversation. ie screen sharing, user control, video size etc.
