      • Auto Attendant not forwarding calls from a conference call.

        We recently created a new Auto Attendant. It works when calling from an external number and when calling as a single user from Skype for Business. The problem lies when attempting to call the Auto Attendant from a conference call. The call establishes, works through the prompt and recognizes the voice input, but when it attemps to connect the call - it tells us it's sorry it can't help and hangs up.

        • Filtering Contact presence

          As of now, I have preferences options that allow me to manage notifications of my own presence. We would also need a similar capability for filtering out notifications for contacts.

          My business case is that I work in a company of roughly 700 employees. Everyone uses Skype for Business and all day long I have a small dialog window that keeps popping up telling me that someone, with a business function unrelated to mine, is available or unavailable.

          That constant flickering is disturbing. I should be able to turn that off completely and cherry pick who I want to monitor…

          • Do not delete conversation history when deleting 'Missed conversation' email

            When I don't reply or acknowledge a chat message, I receive the conversation history via email (ok, sometimes this is useful).
            When I delete the email, the conversation usually also disappears from Skype - this is not useful and means I cannot clean up my mail inbox.

            • When searching for a person, sometimes input moves from search bar to comment section

              This results in me typing another colleagues' name to someone, which is kind of awkward and very annoying.

                  • Allow the "Save IM Conversations in my emails Conversation History Folder" setting to be availaible regardless of GroupPolicy.

                    This should default to unchecked or not selected, but the option should be available regardless of the group policy.

                      Connection with consumer Skype works with some contacts and does not work with others. It's Office 365 service, so we can't fix anything from our side. Just make it work, please.

                        • initial logon problems when sykpe loads before an internet connection is established

                          When I start up my work computer in the morning, Skype will load and then fail to log-in before the Windows OS has finished connecting to the internet. This results in the stored credentials being invalidated, requiring they be entered again.

                          Can you please add an edge case check for when the computer is still authenticating the network connection?

                          • Requesting a "hold" room or a "dial 1" to enter

                            When hosting a large meeting, people dialing in with the "Call me at.." feature will interrupt the meeting as everyone in the room hears the phone ringing. I'd request either muting a person for the first 5-10 seconds on join, or a holding room that says, "Press 1 to join meeting" or something. The hold room would additionally filter out any phones that go to voicemail.

                              The screen sharing would he greatly improved if the screen share could be flipped with a single button, so that the two parties could switch whose screen is shared easily.

                                Currently each time a new chat is started with a contact it creates a new chat. It would be better if this was grouped as a continued chat, such as is the case with iMessage or other messaging apps. This is particularly annoying when on the phone app version.

                                    • Allow for a null option in country for location description/address

                                      Right now, if you enter a new location (like "Home Office"), it asks for an address right after. If you want to skip that, it defaults to the country of Afghanistan. While I enjoy having the AF appended to "Home Office" to let people know my WFH game is on fleek, it should have a null value option because even "Home Office US" is odd.

                                      • Emoticons syncronising

                                        When you put some animated emoticons into your message, you can do it in a certain phase relationship - so you have a continuous row of dancing men, or bouncing notes. When the message is sent, this cohesion is lost and they all revert to standard timing.

                                          • Pasting a picture is very weak...

                                            Pasting a picture is very weak... Too tiny this and that for the recipient. Add a tool that lets you cut and paste an area and the recipient should be able to enlarge the picture to see it better in more detail. At the office we use a 3rd party Snipping tool and email it. We cant depend on live picture paste on screen on here - am sure you can make this better.
