    2. Persistent Chat in Office 365

      Persistent Chat is only available in Skype for Business Server. It should be available in Office 365 / Skype for Business Online, too.

    3. Support for Apple AirPods

      Skype does not support AirPods on Windows or Mac effectively. Users are reportedly either unable to speak to the other caller but can hear them, or unable hear the other callers but speak to them.

    7. the ability to make permanant chat rooms or groups

      having the ability to create rooms or groups for specific topics/projects would be very useful. eg. create room > add people > set topic and so on...

    8. Stop screen share automatically when the voice call ends.

      When I end a voice call where I've been sharing my screen I'd like the screen share to stop, or at least Skype to alert me that it is still sharing. There is a very serious risk of the previous caller seeing something sensitive or confidential because the screen share is still running.

    11. Title your conversation

      When looking through conversations with peers, it would be useful to name or title a conversation relating to a task or project for example. This would help to recall conversations in a hurry, and pick up on old ones.

      *This should be an optional feature*

    12. Export a list of meeting attendees.

      Why is there not an easy method to export a list of meeting attendees? It would be very helpful if, at the end of a meeting, the organizer would get a report of who joined, when they joined, and when they left. This is the most requested feature in my large organization. It seems simple.

    13. Add option to disable "Automatically adjust microphone settings" in Skype for Business client.

      Need the option to disable the "Automatically adjust microphone settings" in Skype for Business client.
      This option is available in "Skype" but not "Skype for Business".
      This is needed if you use SfB in a noisy or call center environment.

      If you use SfB certified headsets with the best microphone noise cancellation it made useless, since the volume is adjusted in windows sound settings automatically by SfB.

      This is really bad and unworkable scenario in call center(RGS) environment when the microphone level auto adjust when you make SfB calls, the clients clearly hears all the adjacent agents speak.

    15. Request to take control for helpdesk

      We have deployed Lync across the company and we want to use it for HelpDesk to shadow users. It would be great for a way to 'take control' of the user's PC without the end user having to initiate it (ie. HelpDesk should initiate the control request and the end user would just see an 'accept/decline' popup)
