      • 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.

                • 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.

                      Hello everyone,

                      Thanks for your feedback and the great discussion here! We would like to learn more about how you leverage SMS as part of your business communication today. We’d highly appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to fill this short survey.

                      https://aka.ms/smssurvey

                      Thank you!
                      -Warren

                    • 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*

                        • 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.

                            • 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)

                                    • 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.

                                      • Emoji for kebap

                                        We need a emoji for a kebap because pizza already exists.

                                        • FULLSCREEN Presentations

                                          need option to have a true FULLSCREEN, rather than have a presentation occupy roughly 50% of the available viewer's screen space

                                          • 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.
