    3. Allow SfB online (office 365) users to add Jabber/XMPP users to their contact list like On premises users can

      On premises Skype for Business/Lync Server users can add Jabber/XMPP users to their contact list for federation. Skype for Business Online (office 365) users are restricted to federation with other SfB and regular Skype users only. I would like SfB online users to be able to federate with more than just other SfB and regular Skype users

    5. Sign Out of All Sessions

      It would be useful to have an option to sign out of all existing sessions from the desktop application (settings), or mobile settings. This is useful if you are away from your desktop or mobile device, and lowers your risk of missed conversations.

    6. Enable Skype Translator in Skype For Business

    7. SfB Passive Auth with Exchange - MFA

      Today, enabling Passive Auth breaks integration with Exchange. This is called out here as by design:

      "Customers who have deployed two-factor authentication for Microsoft Exchange may find that certain features in the client are unavailable. This is currently by design, as the Skype for Business client does not support two-factor authentication for features that are dependent on Exchange integration."
      - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn308562.aspx

      Yet, every Microsoft marketing blog post states that SfB for Mobile and Desktop now supports MFA... Although SfB does support MFA, the inability for it to integrate with Exchange once MFA is enabled is unacceptable.

      End users (on iOS)…

    8. DLP for Skype

      Office 365 offers DLP for Exchange, Sharepoint, and Onedrive. However, there is no DLP for Skype. We need Skype data loss prevention to prevent users from transferring confidential data via Skype, particularly to external domains.

    10. Audit logs for Skype for Business Online

      The current O365 Audit logs do not include any Skype for Business data … ?
      What are our plans to also include SfB logs ? And what details ?

      Background:
      My customer received an email notifications that his PSTN number (Phone System with Calling Plan) has changed, but he is the Admin and has not made this change.
      He wants to check who and when this change has been made ? Was it another Admin or Microsoft ... ?

    12. Data Leakage Prevention and AV scan at edge level in skype for business

      We need to have a way to block IM, presentations, desktop shares and file transfers that are have a classification of a certain type like "company confidential". We currently use a marking tool for our office document and must have a way to avoid data leakage when communicating to outside stakeholders via the edge server. we also need a way to scan files for a threat with a third party antivirus

    13. File transfer error message not clear

      When I tried to send a file (.mat file from Matlab) via Skype, the transfer failed and the following error message was shown: "Error in Transfer". I doubted there was a network issue and tried to re-send several times in different network configurations.

      After some investigation, I found out that this was not a network error, but just a file extension filtering of Skype. In this case, Skype should show another message like "restricted file" or something, so that the user can clearly understand that this is the intended behavior.

      Please consider changing this error message. Thank you!

    14. status logs

      Enable Admins to export status history logs for all users. This can be used for tracking purposes as to what the status of the user/s was for the day. It would be better if the IP Address will also be included in the logs so that it can be determined where the user logged in to his account.

    15. Remove the need for the legacy RTC* groups

      Remove the need for the older, legacy RTC groups from Skype for Business. Why do I need to assign someone to RTCUniversalUserAdministrator when they are a member of CsAdministrator? Shouldn't CsAdministrator, or the other Cs RBAC groups, give all the access that the group implies?

      For the love of my and my fellow admin's sanity, fix this.

    16. Allow/Restrict communication between users from one domain to others when federated between domains.

      Allow/Restrict communication between users from one domain to others when federated between domains.
      If we add multiple domains for federation, there should be some mechanism to allow / restrict users from certain groups to be able to communicate through Skype for Business.

    18. Ability to disable mobile access for employees

      Administrators should be able to disable mobile access for employees who shouldn't use the mobile app. For security purposes and legal purposes, conversations are recorded when using the desktop client, but conversations are not recorded using the mobile app.

    19. Need a way to hide VIP users from the Skype directory

      We have some VIP users who should not be contacted directly by others in the organization, but only through their executive assistants.

      Currently we can hide them from email, but Skype keeps it's own directory that other O365 directories rely on (per O365 as we troubleshot the issue), making it impossible to hide VIP users there.

      Ideally we'd like:
      * To be able to completely hide particular users from all O365 directories including the Skype directory
      * To be able to make the hidden user visible only to other in their department or to specific users or groups
      * Hiding…
