Dock Chat Windows in Main Window.
Ala, GitHub for windows. Contact list on the left. Tabbed chat windows on the right, all in the main window.
Apparently the dev team does not use the product. If they did, they would dock the window!
Please Dock the Main Skype People Window to the Chat. Gosh - It is PAINFULL TO constantly have to search for it.
This is a no brainer. Thanks
Unbelievable that this has not been done or a reasonable explanation given why it hasn't. This was raised 4 years ago. Wow.
Nothin yet? Unbelievable.
Still waiting for this...
skype dev losers
i can not figure out why this did not get implemented since 2015 !!!
i have not used skype in a long, loooong time, recently my company started migrating to outlook and skype, coming over from lotus notes. i was migrated over the weekend.
so i came to work this morning, messed with outlook and skype for an hour or so, and this was LITERALY my first google search: "skype dock main and chat windows"
if this is the first thing a new user wants to change in a few minutes spent with the software, surely there is something wrong....
and the devs have not done anything about it in 3 years !!!
i'm not saying IMPOSE the change, i'm saying make an option, OPTION in settings that, if desired, can be selected to dock them.
How hard is it to add a Skype column to the Outlook window? I'm guessing technically, not very. So there must be a business reason? Would that business reason be, annoy customers so they use other products?

I hate navigating between the two window... it's just annoying. I'd like to have everything in one window
Very frequently navigating between the two windows. Option to dock them together would be great. As it is, I have to click the task bar, then figure out which of the 2 windows is the contact list, click it, then scroll to the name I want to chat with. A lot of actions that would not be necessary were this in place.
I would go so far as to ask that Skype be docked within the desktop version of Outlook. Making for a complete communications single window application. Too much to ask? lol

At the very least, add a contacts dynamic search bar
to the start of the tabs pane of the chat window.
MS ?? what are you doing ? Your users, the folks who eventually sign your pay check are asking you to fix, a terrible flaw in the usability for such a long time. Why haven't you fixed and shipped the update yet ????
I have used Stride, Hip Chat, Slack, etc and ALL function with the main list docked to the chat- you simply click on the persons name or the room and you now have that conversation listed. WAY easier to keep track of. Makes it a chore to find your contact list then to open up another tab in your windowed view.
Good God. I'd settle for just having this steaming shite pile to leave Windows where I put them.
the fact that this thread is 3 years old and this VERY SIMPLE adjustment has not been included is absurd.
I requested a similar feature in Zoom Messenger for Business (start new conversation from tabbed conversation list) and the feature was rolled out in 3 weeks.
This is unacceptable Microsoft. Skype was better without you.

PLZ! DO THAT QUICKLY!
I agree, make it dockable. Or switch to slack.

This is an absolute must. It is poor User Experience.
