    1. Skype Conversation History - Cleanup

      “Skype Conversation History” builds up over time with duplicates and partial messages in Outlook. And the built-in “Clean Up” function doesn’t do anything with this folder.
      After some online search, I found this link which claims to do the exact same thing. I wish Microsoft included this as a built-in feature.

      • Support for Apple AirPods

        Skype does not support AirPods on Windows or Mac effectively. Users are reportedly either unable to speak to the other caller but can hear them, or unable hear the other callers but speak to them.

              Default the Skype footer in a Outlook meeting invitation for a Skype meeting is Calibri. My company would like it to be customizable in font and size to comply to our corporate identity.

                • 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.

                    • Control call queue incoming calls and notifications on Skype client on desktop.

                      We would like to see an option to mute or disable call queue incoming calls on desktop client. Presently it is very annoying to be ringing desk phones and clients at the same time. if end users or admin have an option to mute or disable while them being the queue so that desk phone rings would be great. Same thing we can disable the missed call notifications as well for call queue that would be great as well.

                        • Properly show users' local time on the main card of the contact card

                          With the new contact card layout in (16.0.9126.2259), the users's local time is now buried on the second card (two clicks), and does not display correctly. It appears like: Time Zone: 3 ... Eastern Daylight Time.

                          Please revert back to old format.

                          • allow navigating through multi-level IVR Group using keyboard

                            The focus of Call Control windows jumps to Hold button when selecting an option in an IVR, which breaks the option to use the keyboard for sub-menu's in the IVR. for PSTN calls the DTMF pad focus is set correctly, but not for Skype IVR groups.

                            • Show clean error message when music on hold audio file not found

                              If the desktop client can not find the MusicOnHoldAudioFile it freezes for 30 seconds with "not responding" and then continues without any further error message. This is reproducable with Lync 2013 and S4B 2016.

                              I accidentally removed the server share where the music file was stored and people started complaining about slow S4B connections when holding or transferring a call.
                              Even our external supporter did not find the problem until I again accidentally looked at the client policy.

                              Please Please Please add an error message like

                              "Could not find audio file for MusicOnHoldAudioFile at <path>"

                              Thanks in advance.

                              Peter M.

                                  I have a large number of contacts. Sometimes I am not always sure how exactly I knew the first. I keep track of SME's for all sorts of technologies and it would be nice to be able to add a little side contact under their name to job my memory about what specifically they helped me with or any other relevant information

                                      • Two Skype for business accounts on one device

                                        I have two different skype for business accounts from two organizations. I would like to use them parallel on all devices (Win-Client, iOS App). Unfortunately it is not possible to start two instances or two use two accounts in one client at the same time. But I have to be available for both organisations.

                                        • admin access over skype for business screen sharing

                                          I cannot remotely access a windows 10 computer via Skype For Business.
                                          When the user grants me control, I can control the screen but the control session locks when I try to do something that requires admin access.

                                          • Untag myself out

                                            I am not comfortable when someone has tagged me and follows my status updates. Can I know who has tagged me and can I untag myself out of their list?
