The chat history feature is awfull, it creates new history for every bit of conversation instead of having one single history. When starting a conversaton on desktop and then carrying on mobile it loses part of the messages.
The history between desktop and mobile devices is terrible at syncing and the emails you get about missed conversations are always disjointed and have the wrong time stamps. This is really a major setback and makes me want to leave skype for business for something that can manage my conversations across platforms. This should be your number one priority, as all the other features are meaningless if we can't rely on the platform to keep us in sync with our conversations.
Realmente es desesperante encontrar alguna conversacion anterior. No se tiene una opcion de busqueda y no esta ni permite ordenar por nombre del contacto. Pueden tomar ideas del pidgin.
True. Please steal some ideas from free software pidgin!!! There you can search in one user history & have it arrange by user. Also I don't need/want to have lost conversations sended to my mail.
Skype automatically shows the conversation history for a contact/group when you open a chat window, you can see every message ever sent if you want to
Skype for Business gives you a blank screen. You can pull in previous bits of the conversation in tiny chunks, but it is a massive step backwards!
I agree. Google Hangouts chat feature does it. Facebook messenger does it. Probably lots of others that do. They've had it for years. This would be a much appreciated and useful feature!

completely agree.. moreover I am using outlook which is synced with Skype. So every single message we type in Skype is saved as a mail in outlook filling up unnecessary space.
Like in same time , I should be able to click on a name, with whom I interacted, then I should be able to pull a date for which I want to see history for and I should be able to see all message in just one window and not in multiple windows.

The chat history needs a few changes. It's very difficult to pull together a full chat log with a given person or group if you have regular breaks in the conversation.
Firstly it should save as you chat rather than at long pauses.
It should save to a single chat log for a conversation (perhaps have a daily log per person).
Notification of log should be ONCE at the very start and be able to disable this warning on my end.
