    1. Skype for business needs functionality to be able to "raise a hand" and sort participant list according to order in which hand was raised.

      Skype for business needs functionality to be able to "raise a hand" and sort participant list according to order in which hand was raised. Needed for managing large meetings and manage interruptions. Would also like to be able to Mute All and selectively Unmute selected participants.

    5. Ability for Surface Hub to participate in a Skype for Business Whiteboard session

      The Surface Hub should be able to at a minimum see and ideally participate in a Skype for Business White Board session which is initiated by a Skype for Business client and enabled for multiple endpoints to collaborate on the same whiteboard.

    6. Allow PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) control of cameras

      Allow members of a S4B meeting to remotely control cameras with pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) capability so that remote participants can "look around" a large room or zoom in on a person who is speaking. This was possible 10 years ago with Polycom devices and would be great now, especially for larger conference rooms. Ideally, S4B would detect that the camera was PTZ capable and automatically display up/down/left/right arrows and zoom in/out buttons.

    7. Skype Room Systems- Support Interactive Display Functionality for Whiteboarding

      We currently have touchscreen interactive displays (Sharp Aquous Boards) in our conference rooms but we would lose the touchscreen functionality of the room's display with the new Skype Room Systems.

      Specifically, we would lose the ability to whiteboard or annotate over power point presentation using the room's touch display during Skype meetings if we deployed the new Skype Room Systems. This is huge barrier preventing us from purchasing and deploying the new SRS.

    9. Provide echo cancellation like other audioconferencing solutions

      We find that remote users hear an echo of themselves in all of our conference rooms, which are fairly standard - TV with webcam on top, using the webcam microphone. The sound from the TV gets picked up by the webcam and sent back across the call, causing an echo on the far end. Other products (like GoToMeeting) are smart enough to detect this echo and not send it back across the line. I think personal Skype have this capability as well.

      I have worked through the issue with MS support on case number SRX617112793089112ID , if that helps. I…

    11. Option to enable more than one video Gallery view on a Room System

      An option in the portal for a Room System to allow more than 5 active video speakers on the screen. Allowing 2 video gallery view rows to show would be great.

    12. Open up S4B Room System App to more devices and docks

      Currently, only a couple of manufacturers make 'Skype room system' docks. The app is available within the store, however doesn't function on any other devices. Allow users to use the app on other devices/docks and make it easier for Administrators to get SRS deployed.

    13. View Skype broadcast meetings on SRS v2

      Extend Skype Broadcast into the meeting room with the same one click join. Detect the broadcast link then open a browser. Companies with limited broadcast and no budget for Kollective etc. may have plenty for streaming to rooms.

    14. File Sharing Pod

      Sometimes we need to get files to the people at a meeting. We always hear "I didn't get that email attachment..." The ability to do peer-to-peer file sharing is WAY better than finding email addresses and sending attachments.

      A popup share that allows Upload from anyone and then a download-Browse... Save operation is the way to go. Click on the file you need and press Download / Save and get the file instantly.

    15. Allow both LRS screens to display meeting content and allow multiple capture cables

      Allow LRS to display content on both front of room panels for LRS. This could include application share/whiteboard/presentation as content. Ideally a presenter should be able to select what content is projected on which screen.

    19. Add the possibility to have 'Favourites' in the Skype Room System console

      When having several meeting rooms, and in most cases the participants just wants to call one of the other rooms, it could be convenient to have a 'Favorites' list on the Skype Meeting Room devices

    20. Meeting ID

      In meeting rooms we use an dedicated iPad for each room and do not wand users to login on the SfB for security reasons. There is no other applications, mail etc. on the iPad hence no way of communicating the meeting URL to the iPad.
      We would like to have a short meeting number eg. 1425 3633 this is a highly valued feture we had on our decommisioned WebEx solution.
