    1. I wish to have better control when users are sharing monitors with me, control doesnot work

      I wish to have better control when users are sharing monitors with me. I help them out in our company and when ACL is enabled, it won't work. Ability to run command prompt in elevated priv is a must for Admins helping users.

        • Modern Authentication for split-domain deployments between Skype for Business Online and Skype for Business Server2015 on-prem not supported

          Modern auth for the mobile skype client itself works fine. Our conditional access policies are working as we designed them (only allowed to connect from a managed (intune enrolled) device. From what I understand, is after the client is running it attempts to contact EWS for free/busy information, and that’s where it falls apart.

          On the link about “Apps supporting ADAL / Modern Auth” I see Exchange Online, but I don’t see EWS. I think where this isn’t working is from Skype mobile client to Exchange online – ‘modern auth’ doesn’t work between those two applications.

            • Allow the user to Change the font size on the Contacts Tab

              Just allow a user to change the font size on the Contacts tab, it seems that they are either too small or too big.

                • Skype Broadcast with iPhone 6S

                  User complains that Skype Broadcast stops when Low Battery warning pops up or when he locks the screen to have only audio (user has iPhone 6S)

                  We performed test using 3 devices:

                  - 1 iPhone 5S - 13% of battery
                  - 1 iPhone 7 - 13% of battery
                  - 1 iPhone 8 - 93% of battery

                  We noticed that for both iPhone 5S and 7 with low battery, once we clicked on Top/Side Button the audio stopped.

                  For iPhone 8 (full battery) once clicked on Side Button, we were still able to hear the audio from the Broadcast.

                  Someone from…

                  • Someone who joins in the web browser should be informed they cannot share their screen with others

                    When someone joins using the web browser, they do not receive a notice that they cannot share their screen. This caused 10 people on a team call to waste about 10 minutes of the call trying to troubleshoot, and then decide they would never use S4B again. We will just continue to use WebEx because it has a reliable experience.

                            Seriously????

                            You must allow for a way to HYPERLINK file and folder locations on a network... Absolutely unacceptable not to be able to do this..
                            I'm very frustrate.

                            This is an absolute necessity for the workplace when you want electronic messaging... This is a basic programming hum that a starting IT engineer can program in.. please Do it now and you will gain many people's approval.

                              • Read all the frustration about "credentials". Lots of issues and no official acknowledgement.

                                Is anyone official listening? Is this an official Microsoft site? Or just one pretending? Search "credentials" and look for all the problems of repeated prompts, unable to login or crashes. I expect a lot of the issues relate to firewalls, "sleep" mode on Mac (and maybe PC) and mobile users moving laptop to new room. There are clearly issues out there. Maybe not in the labs of the developers. My issue is not that bad but annoying and slows communication down. Even though I have saved my credentials and chosen "Keep me logged" I get re-prompted many times per day…

                                  • The iPhone Lync app should be updated to the skype for business app to become a single solution for all contacts.

                                    Its a bit silly to have a Lync app that only allows you to contact people in your organization on your iPhone, and a separate Skype app and account to contact people outside your organization... especially when Skype for business on your PC can do both. Update the iPhone app to be like the Skype for business PC app already!

                                        Kinda stupid you put the client in the Pro Plus license pack, only to not allow access to the service. Why not just sell windows 10 for free and chard everyone 10$ a month to use it? I mean that makes sense right? Also, your support sucks, flat out.

                                            Make it easier to "Allow" sites like those required to perform Administration of Skype of Business in the EDGE browser without having to go into IE --> Internet Options --> Security --> Trusted sites to add the sites that we apparently need. We were not able to consistently get into the Admin for Skype for Business without adding the list that your technicians gave us. It seems like this ability is missing in the current version of the EDGE Browser.
