    2. Enable auditing of Skype for Business activity in compliance center

      At my company we have several global admins for our Office 365 tenant. Different teams control various aspects of the overall configuration. Right now we notice there is a glaring absence of auditing Skype for Business configuration changes. We can audit almost every other component of Office 365 except for Skype. The list of options that are currently available was found at: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Search-the-audit-log-in-the-Office-365-Security-Compliance-Center-0d4d0f35-390b-4518-800e-0c7ec95e946c

      I would like to request that auditing for Skype for Business configuration activity be enabled in the compliance and security center. This seems like an important aspects of auditing since someone can make changes that enable the…

    3. "Show my Picture" as a GPO Option to force option by administrator

      A Lync user has the option to set either he want to show his picture or not in Lync Client (Options/My Picture/Show or Hide my Picture).

      It should be possible to set this option by GPO (or as a Server Setting on Lync Server) so an administrator can prevent some User to "not show" their pictures.

    7. PSTN Dialing Pool Alerts and Reporting

      In order to ensure users do not run out of PSTN Calling Domestic and International minutes, it would be very helpful to provide a simple dashboard to see how many Domestic and International minutes are unused for the tenant, and also provide optional email alerts if the minutes drop below a pre-configured threshold.

    9. There is no way to disable The parameter EnforcePhoneLock for Skype for business online clients.

      There is no way to disable the parameter EnforcePhoneLock for Skype for business online clients. When using a wired conference room phone like a Polycom CX3000 the phone is "locked" after a few minutes of being idle.

    10. GUI Interface for Response Group Holiday Sets

      Please add to SfB Control Pannel a GUI interface to create and edit the Response Group Holiday Sets. There is a free good editor from Jamie Schwinn (http://waveformation.com/holidayseteditor/), why MS could not do the same with Silverlight?

    11. Extract a specific skype for business meeting participant list from O365/SFB online console

      I see that we do not have a place to export/extract a report of list of participants for a specific skype for business meeting. This is an important feature and seems to be missing. Can we add it please?

      To allow Distribution Groups to receive email, but prevent Skype chats to the entire group. This would be helpful in some business situations where email is desired, but permitting chat to a large number of users is not.

    15. Better ways to manage call forwarding options as an admin

      There are old examples to view and possibly change call forwarding options of users via PowerShell, but all the existing samples and examples no longer work with the current version of S4B. Could someone please get with MSDN/TechNet/etc. and maybe do a blog and some current sample code to demonstrate if it is even possible now to turn on or off call forwarding for a S4B user without having to sign into a full copy of Office client and do it the hard way?

    17. Ability to remove the Auto-Tag for online\offline for automatically-added contacts via admin

      Automatically added contacts are being defaulted to tagged. this is terrible form, and upon migrating from on-premesis to O365 skype for business, it enabled tagging on these default added users. There is no way to bulk-remove this feature from an adminsitrative console, and it is forcing us to show each individual user how to untag each of their contacts. it is cumbersome, disruptive and causing considerable frustration amongst our staff.

      A setting in the Office 365 portal (or even a powershell command) to remove this as the default behaviour is needed.

    18. PowerShell - Emergency Location Telephone Number Link

      Using SfB Online PowerShell, you cannot find the link between the E911 Locations and Telephone Numbers and vice versa.

      You CAN see this link if you use the SfB Portal and click on the number.

      My request is to increase the information returned using Get-CsOnlineTelephoneNumber as it should include the CivicAddressId/LisLocationId

      Also a switch should be included so you can search for all of the telephone numbers assigned to a specific LisLocation/CivicAddress
