    • My feedback
    1. I began my subscription in April and recieve a message that states "Unable to identify the calendar owner. Please contact your support team"

      when I try to schedule a SfB meeting from Outlook, I receive the following error message, "Unable to identify the calendar owner. Please contact your support team."
      I am a single license user, so that support team is me. Any advice on how to fix this error. Very frustrating

        • how can I pay for a product that offers less than a free version...

          I tried to use a meeting feature from my Skype for Business with one Skype (free) and could not complete it.
          As informed by Support, there are a few restrictions between Skype for Business and free version.
          That´s really disapointed to pay for Skype for Business and nobody that uses Skype Free could find/see me.
          All my contacts already know my personal Skype Account and when I bought the Skype for Business I would intend to do not use anymore the personal user, of course for business purpose.
          I hope Microsoft could do for Skype for Business a better product…

            • Skype Chat History Feature is not good

              If we have a chat window open and we missed some conversation while we are away from the desk and when we come back and click on Conversation - Missed - and Double click it, It actually shows the past conversation in Chat window as latest conversation which seems to be incorrect, we might have updated conversation on the chat window which goes up in the window.

              • Away status time frame

                When selecting a status such as "away" it would be helpful to be able to choose an amount of time for Skype to display that status and then switch back to normal status.

                  • It will be really helpful if there is an option in the IM to send screenshot. It'll reduce the work of writing a mail seperately for this!

                    • a mobile client that actually works

                      (iOS) - will get notifications on lock screen but the messages are missing when going to the app. Sometimes keyboard does not popup when tapping to reply to messages. The mobile client will also show you as inactive after 2/5 mins with no setting to change this behaivor, which is folly imo.

                        • Solve the bugs for instance!

                          So:
                          - If a contact is not in your "favorites" is marked as offline even if is online.
                          - If you send an attachment, the attachment is lost in many cases
                          - Messages arrives with sometimes an unacceptable delays
                          - It is impossible to disable windows 10 notification (but if im' occupied i DON'T WANT POP-UPS)
                          - If i reopen a conversation, all the history is not shown. I have to check the stored history that is updated with the speed of a dead hamster
                          - Application responsivity is definitely bad.

                          • Skype for Business Online Powershell can't handle "all digits" subdomains

                            This is a request for Skype for Business Online PowerShell.

                            During testing Cloud Connector Edition I found the following issue:

                            When configuring the CCE Mediation Server with the cmdlet "Set-CSTenantHybridConfiguration" the cmdlet does not accept fqdns for the Access Edge were a subdomain contains only digits. For example the name "cce-sip.12345.domain.com" will not work. The name "cce-sip.lab12345.domain.com" works.

                            According to RFC, subdomains will only digits are allows. You can even add the domain to Office 365 and enable SfB Online users with a SIP Address with the all digit domain.

                            • Add the Home Page as a Tab with Conversation Tabs

                              I am a big fan of tabbed conversations, makes it a lot simpler to switch between conversations and groups them conveniently in one tab. One big improvement would be to have the "home" page with contacts as a tab in that window. If I want to start a new conversation, I need to go and find the home page window (or make a new one if I closed it) and results in a lot of clicks and time.

                                • Notification trigger

                                  A radio button when enabled helps to send an automatic message to the receiver who wants to know when a particular person has completed his or her meeting or conference call. This helps in avoiding situations where we check multiple times if a person has completed his call or meeting.

                                  • Skype for Business - Online Contact Management in the "Groups" tab

                                    When viewing my "GROUPS" tab I would like it to show individuals in each group who are online and not show offline contacts. How can this happen as the "STATUS" tab doesn't provide the organization of the groups tab.

                                    • Show department list in SfB

                                      In Windows SfB you can see the whole department list after searching for a Person. Would be great to have this feature on SfB for Mac.

                                      • Stop crashing when I disconnect from VPN

                                        We use a DELL / Sonicwall VPN endpoint. When I disconnect from VPN while in a call / ringing, Skype for B crashes, It is closed and restarted after windows has reported the crash.

                                          • "We're having some trouble with linking your contacts."

                                            Use a more descriptive error than "We're having some trouble with linking your contacts." I want to link contacts (actually I want to merge them, but that isn't an option), but I can't and I have no idea why.
