    2. Ability to send and view screenshots in the IM window without having to save, attach, open files or start a meeting.

      Add the ability to insert screen shots into an IM window and have it be fully viewable to all parties involved without having to save it as a file and attach to the IM where it may or may not open for the chat partner. Yes, one could start a meeting, but depending on what is on the desktop being shared, a person may not want the chat partner to be in full view of anything else that may be open or toggled through at the time. IBM's Sametime system has this function and it was quite effective in case…

    7. 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.

    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.

    14. 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

    16. 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.

    17. Enter for newline, Ctrl-Enter to send message

      In a multi-line input field you would expect the Enter key to make a newline, and Ctrl-Enter to send the message. This is common in many other chat clients and Outlook works this way too. I think this behavior should be default, or at least something you can select.

    19. 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)
