Add “Be back around XX:XX”.
Add “Be back around XX:XX”. It would be nice to have an option for “Be back around XX:XX” under my status where you could specify the time you will be back. If I look someone up and their status is be right back, I have no idea how long they have been away and when “right back” will actually be. People have a tendency to change their status back to Available when they return so one never knows. The function to state a time and have it go back to available automatically would be very useful, IMHO.
Need custom status options / free text when i do not want to show outlook availability.

This would be most useful if it automatically translated the time to the local time zone of the person viewing the status.
Yes its good to have the conversation history for future references.
i think more emonticons would be a better use of the skype developers time
To start, everyone is entitled to sharing their own opinion free from being TROLLED like a five year old. When you start bashing someone through these suggestion portals you work against the foundation of why this suggestion portal is even here. In the end why people post suggestions is to help make a product better that's going to help make doing their JOB easier.
Playing devil's advocate what happens when the user isn't back after the specified time and it automatically puts them back to available mode. :-(.
I believe you can use the calendar and create an event that will make you unavailable.
I thought Skype retrieved the Busy/Free information to assist in controlling online presence information. However looking through the options and creating an event in hopes that it would adjust the availability it doesn't work as I thought it would.
It would be rad if Skype sensed that an event is scheduled and adjusts presence details to being unavailable. I agree it would be nice to echo when the user *maybe* next available, could be beneficial and after the meeting elapses the user should manually set their presence back to available.
A user could then defer to the user's Calendar for when they were unavailable.
IMHO - Since you don't like receiving criticism, maybe you should start suggesting features that are actually useful.
You are an ******* aren't you. You have NOTHING nice to say to anyone that posts a question or comment. Who made you GOD!
This is such narcissism. Nobody cares what you're doing that much.
