    4. Enhance idle/away settings for Mac

      Please allow Skype for Business for Mac users to adjust the amount of time it takes for the status to appear as "away" when the computer is idle, or to turn that feature off completely. Sometimes, my job entails reviewing hard copy documents. I may not be using my computer, but I am still working (and available). I would like to be able to adjust this setting or turn it off. It looks like this is an option for PC. Why not Mac?

    7. Persistent Chat on the MAC Client

      The MAC client that is being worked on, NEEDS to have Persistent Chat included. The fact that the PC side has had this for 5+ years, while the MAC has not, is VERY SAD. Please include Persistent Chat on ALL clients going forward. Also, please MODERNIZE it. It hasn't been improved in YEARS. So, even the clients that DO have it have a very mediocre PC experience.

      Our users have been asking for years, they are giving up and using Slack and other systems since we have not been able to provide a usable solution.

      Please wake up and make…

    9. Support use of comma in dialer to add pause when dialing

      Use of comma "," in dial string to add a 2 second pause. Very handy to quickly dial a conference call number.

    11. Mac : Keep conversations in same thread

      Skype for business usability is BAD.
      Keep the same behavior as regular Skype.

      CONVERSATIONS
      Keep the conversations on the same thread. Stop creating separate threads for no reason.

      HISTORY
      Keep history of the conversations. So we know what we were talking about when we open the chat again.

      ADD PEOPLE TO CONVERSATION
      As in Skype, adding people should create a new chat.

      MESSAGE SEARCH
      As in Skype, let me search my messages history.

      That basic usability features anyone would want. If Skype can do it. Skype for business can do it was well.

      DO IT GUYS.

    12. Hide Offline Contacts

      I've searched the forums for a "Hide Offline Contacts" post in the "Client - Mac" category. All the other posts were in other platforms. I'd like to see this option in the Skype for Business Mac application. I figure the Windows version is so different the the Mac version, that if we don't put this improvement in this specific forum that it will be overlooked.

      Vote here if you'd like to see a "Hide Offline Contacts" as the previous "Lync" had!

    13. Add external contacts

      For god sake give us the ability to add contacts outside the org in the mac client.
      Its super easy on windows to search the Skype directory vs the company directory to add external contacts. We need the same for the mac client. Our HR department wants to use Skype on mac for interviews.

    14. There should ABSOLUTELY be a way to add and remove contacts in Skype for Business when you have a Lync 2013 server

      Adding and removing contacts is the most basic feature of Lync/Skype for Business and without it makes a messaging system WAY more clunky and troublesome. You can add contacts in S4B 2016 for PC.

      You can do it on the clients for iphone and android. For some reason you have decided to remove this feature. It's like having a 2013 Exchange server and telling people with Outlook 2016 for MAC that you cannot add people to your address book.

      You have delayed the release of a more recent version of S4B (last one was Lync 2011.. uggg), you have not…

    15. Chat history

      Chat history in the new SfB client is listed by recent activity, but chats from the same contact end up getting broken into multiple 'saves'. Would like the option to store the history for each contact as a single running history for that contact.

    17. Skype For Business on mac keeps disconnecting - not good

      Please make Skype mac version work more like the windows version. Actually keep me in conversations instead of constantly disconnected Voice calls. I am just trying to use it for messages among my co workers and it is not working well for me. For now, I am moving to windows version. Why can you not focus on getting it right for mac users??

    18. Allow for tabbed chat windows, instead of single window per chat on Mac.

      With the new build available for Skype for Business on Mac when you open multiple chats they each get their own window which can be cumbersome. Make it optional to be able to control whether all the chats are separate or all tabbed in a single window.

    20. Fix whatever causes the "We couldn't send this message" in the middle of a 2 way conversation. Obviously it was delivered.

      In the middle of a 2 way conversation you get the message "We couldn't send this message" but the person answers back so obviously it was delivered.
