          • 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.

            It is…

            • Remove User images from task bar IM session list. Just use list of names.

              When I only have a few IM sessions open at a time, the images in the task bar are not a problem, but eventually it gets to the point where the images are so small that I can't see who I'm trying to talk to. When I get a few more open, eventually it changes to a list of names. Can there be a setting to change it to just a list of names regardless of number of chats?

                  • Enable Music on Hold in Skype Meetings for participants joining through Skype for Business client.

                    We are able to enable MOH before the meeting starts in Skype Meetings via PowerShell command Set-CsClientPolicy -Identity global -EnableClientMusicOnHold $True but this only enables MOH for participants that dials in to the meeting. Please enable for SFB participants.

                    • Allow US format for dates in Skype for Business holiday config

                      Holiday date format should match the format for the country of the user. Due to the current configuration of dd/mm/yyyy, multiple holidays are entered incorrectly. The United States standardized on mm/dd/yyyy and that is what we expect to use when configuring dates in Office 365 and all other systems. This is the only system that forces us to use the incorrect format for the US. Forcing us to a different standard leaves too much room for mistakes.

                      • Role based access control

                        I've just found out there is no way to give limited permissions to the Admin Portal to Junior Admins so they do specific tasks like changing phone number assignments.

                        I feel like this is a basic feature that both Skype and Teams should have so that we follow our least privilege approach using RBAC.

                        Thanks

                        • Make the Call/Answer button GREEN.

                          There's no excuse not to. It makes literally the most sense.

                          Currently, when we receive calls, 3 round and equally sized buttons appear on the computer screen. The left one (Answer Call) is blue, the center one (Settings?/Message? I don't remember) is the same color blue as the left one, and the right button (Hang Up) is red. When we get a phone call, we all expect to find a green button to press to answer. This is because any modern day cell phone follows this logic. A green button is the worldwide symbol for answering any phone call or…

                          • Warn when trying to send message when not viewing latest messages

                            When having a long text conversation, often I will scroll up the messages to look at what my colleague sent to me previously. I can lose track of what the latest message was and accidentally reply to an old message.
                            Please give me a warning when I try to send a message and am not scrolled down to view the latest messages.

                              Skype for Business should have message delivered and read receipt function, which will be really helpful to all the users.

                                    • Search on department and title attributes doesn't work on mobile clients

                                      In Active Directory, users have filled the attributes Title and Department and on the desktop SfB client, they are searched successfully.

                                      But from the mobile SfB client (Android and iOS) the same search does not give a result.

                                      Please enable searching in the Title and Department fields on a mobile client.

                                        It would be very helpful if the "call me" feature was updated to actually call you when the meeting is scheduled rather than when you press the button for the feature. I often use when I'm driving and need to do it before I start driving, so I can be connected for 30 min. before the meeting is supposed to start since I can't be messing with it while I'm driving.

                                            Skype for business web app on mac should request permission to access microphone.
                                            Since for now we join meeting via SfB, ppl cannot hear our voice since SfB did not have access of microphone on MacOS Mojave.
                                            Skype should fix this issue.
