    1. Ability to disable emoji for recipient.

      When writing a message I don't want the (k) in 401(k) to turn into a kissy face. This is unprofessional, embarrassing, and should be very easy to solve! I can currently only turn off emoji on my own screen, but this will not prevent others from seeing unintended kissy faces.

      Moreover, it should not be a surprise to me that I will send a kissy face if I currently have my options set to enabled for sending emoji. As I type, when the text changes, it should be scanned for anything that will be turned into emoji, and replaced BEFORE…

    3. Ability to change the default layout

      Please provide a new option (that is configurable as an in-band provisioning setting) that allows users to change the default layout. Many of our users don't like that Speaker View is the default setting, and they have to change that setting every time they join a meeting.

    5. Add Communication Credits in the CSP program

      Only Domestic of Domestic+International calling is available. Some users need to call International but not on a regular basis. Communication Credits is interesting then.

    6. Automatically close out Screen Sharing upon hanging up the call.

      In you're in a call with someone and activate screen sharing, when you hang up the call the screen sharing continues unless you click "stop sharing" or completely close (x) out of the call window. This could be problematic if someone forgets to take either of those steps to deactivate sharing. I suggest that Skype automatically closes out screen sharing when you hang up the audio call.

    8. Make Skype for Business the same as Skype

      I don't understand why 2 clients have been made for this, especially when both names are so similar, makes things very complicated.

      I think all the features that separate Skype for Business and Skype should be on one program! OR all contacts should be allowed to speak with each other with no restrictions.

      Skype for Business should have 1 thing extra which would be to be a presenter (meaning you can share files and screen with all other users but regular skype users can't share theirs) and it should be the account type that you pay for.

      Currently there is…

    9. Support use of comma in dialer to add pause when dialing

      Use of comma "," in dial string to add a 2 second pause. Very handy to quickly dial a conference call number.

    10. Skype for Business screen sharing screen small

      found that whenever we share screen in Skype for business we just had some gaps and the screen size showed small, no user was able to get a maximized screen view. We use Go To Meeting right now, and would like something similar in user experience where you can get a full screen view of users desktop but also still have access to your toolbar, etc.

    12. Keep the conversation history with one person in one conversation, stop creating different conversations while talking to the same person.

      Keep the whole conversation with the same person in one window, stop creating 100 different ones everytime a new conversation starts. It's so annoying to see 100 different chat conversations with the same person throughout the day.

    15. Automatically accept meeting content

      We use Skype for Business to collaborate on a daily basis. Sometimes we'd like to start sharing content, and somebody misses the "Accept content" prompt. I'd like to be able to make so that if one of the other people starts presenting something, I automatically accept it.

    16. Requesting entry and exit tones apply to all Conference participants regardless of modality

      Requesting entry and exit tones apply to all Conference participants, regardless of modality. This is to address gap in blended experience.

    17. Possibility to point on presenters screen

      When discussing a drawing for example, it would be helpful that also the clients can point on the screen and their mouse position is shown.
      This will give a Feedback to all participants above what detail the client is talking.
      Mouse is shown only if the client press the mouse button. Each client has its individual pointer (name, colour).

    18. Rule based call forwarding

      The user should be able to forward calls based on different criteria:

      • Caller number

      • Caller is in the user’s contact List

      • The presence status

      • Caller Privacy Relationship

      • Time

      • Out of office (Exchange) status

      • Etc.

      The forwarded calls should be able to be transferred to the following destinations:

      • Other Lync user

      • UM voicemail

      • PSTN/mobile number

      • RGS

      • Team call group

      • Etc.

    19. Please fix the bug with messages disappearing between the pop up notification, and the actual conversation window

      About a quarter of the time, when I receive a message and click the pop up notification, Skype seems to lose the message. If I open a conversation view with that person (that had not been opened yet since my last log on/off) it does not show the most recent message; it gets lost in the twilight zone, sometimes reappearing at a later time, sometimes never.

    20. Skype for Business in Office 2016 keeps asking for credentials

      Skype for Business will open and login but then a window asking for credentials will pop up even though I'm already logged in. When I enter my credentials and click "save my credentials", Skype for Business crashes. If I ignore the request then it works fine.
