        • Why on earth does Skype shut down (disconnect) when the screen is locked?

          Why on earth does Skype shut down (disconnect) when the screen of an iPhone is locked? What’s the purpose of an "instant" messaging app if I can’t get the message instantaneously and have to launch the app before I can get the message? I want to be in the room when you guys think this stuff up. This has become a major flaw in many MS products. Pump out a new version to do something different just for change-sake. AND FIX THAT DAM ISSUE WITH WINDOW PLACEMENT IN WINDOWS 8/10. A NEW WINDOW SHOULD POP UP TO THE FRONT, NOT…

              • turn off notification

                There are many variations of the necessary improvement to mute notifications with S4B. Please add a feature to turn off notifications from the device, however, the user should not have to open the app to adjust notifications. It would be great to integrate it into the systems notification - Bluetooth On/Off, WiFi On/Off, Skype On/Off

                • A simple phone call ( not video meeting ) conversation recording.

                  I cant believe there is not an option available to click a button during a phone call to record the conversation in Skype for Business.

                  • Add options in configuration to restrict users to sign-in SFB from external device or network.

                    Hi Teams, our company have high-level security concern on the tenant, so we are wondering if we could add any options to the configuration in Legacy Portal which will make Admins to restrict users to sign-in Skype for Business from external device or network. We will be much appreciated if you could take our suggestions. Thanks!

                      • Enable a person running magnification software to share their screen without others seeing the magnified screen

                        In Windows 7 (Skype for Business 2016) you could run magnification software and share your screen without recipients seeing the magnified screen. In Windows 10 this has stopped. Now all recipients see a magnified version which has become unworkable.

                        • Please give a timeline for the fix for 5 seconds delay situation in SFB Call Queue connection!

                          Hi Teams, we are experiencing a 5 seconds delay to set up Skype for Business Call Queue connection between users. We were using a third party provider before without this issue. We also tried to escalate this case through Microsoft Support but has been rejected since it is recognized as a common scenario. It is causing business impact and a very negative reflection both on our side and Microsoft. Can we have a timeline to fix this situation?

                          • A function to untag all contacts in once

                            I'm a IT of my company and recently met an odd issue that some users found that all the contacts in SFB were tagged for status change alert, then the users kept getting alerts of online/offline.

                            As there're so many contacts of each user, it's impractical to untag one by one, hope there could be a function to untag all contacts in once.

                                    • add native call function

                                      we are using S4B telephonie -"landline" phone numbers. but the S4B on iOS goes to a standby state after some time when I don't touch the iPhone and does not show the incoming calls. I have to sleep with my open laptop running S4B when I am expecting calls during my standby shift. this is really annoying. Simultaneous call to my cellphone is not an option for various reasons anymore.

                                      • Let skype work on Linux and Firefox! Actually, it does not! Year after year, skype works worse and worse!

                                        skype for linux doesn't work on my debian linux PC.
                                        skype web doesn't work on Firefox: why?
                                        Year after year, skype works worse and worse!
