    1. Show status and location together, even when searching or with conversation window opened

      First of all, it's hard to find people with SfB, because the searching engine only works with first and second name.
      When looking at the groups view, you can see contact's Locations or Status. We should be able to see both.
      When you search for a contact, it's location/status won't be shown. It should.

    4. Invoking a call is not intuitive

      When clicking on the icon "telephone handset" to invoke a call, a popup appears. Unfortunately, I did not realize that one has to click on the text "Skype Anruf" (probably "Skype Call" in English) to actually invoke the call. I thought that this is just a hint with the description of what the button does, and so I wondered why I cannot call anybody. I then needed help from the support to tell me that I have to click on the text "Skype Anruf" in the Popup. I think that this is really not intuitive as it looks like a…

    5. The ability to travel through time. Would be helpful in some situations.

      Travel through time.
      Backwards, Forward.
      Either one so we don't get to confused.

    12. Show better "traditional" voice switch video feed instead of galery view

      When you are in conversation with multiple other participants, you don't really need to concentrate on ALL participants at once. You only need to view the person that is talking. Traditional videoconferencing MCUs achieved this through voice switching participants, showing that primary speaker as the largest view, with other as smaller feeds.

      There is sooooo much wasted screen real estate in Galery view, and it makes no sense.

    16. Lync Web App Browser Window Remain Open

      Enable the internet browser window to stay open once a user selects to Join a Lync/Skype meeting, this way it enables them to be able to use Lync Web App

      If there are any issues with the Lync client connecting to meetings then it gives the user a fall back option to test and try.

    17. The search on the PC is terrible

      The search function on the pc is terrible it takes up to two minutes to get any results. If I type in a name perfectly sometime it can't find that person. WTF is up with that, how hard can it be to make a simple * search. I waste to much time waiting on that thing. It works up to 100 times faster on my cell phone giving me instantaneous results when I input a letter. If I input one letter for skype on the PC search it doesn't even do anything. WTF is up with this **?

    18. The difference between the sykpe for business icon and the skype for desktop icon so never know which one I am clicking on.

      The icons are so similar I cant tell which app it is. Very annoying. Either merge the two together or make them different so I can tell which one I am opening on the taskbar

    19. Have a function to enlarge the image shared by other parties within the conversation rather than use of whiteboard which will be wiped out

      Whenever I copy and paste an image or conversation to another 3rd party, the image becomes very small.. and there is no way of enlarging it despite enlarging my conservation screen :(

      there's no reason why I have to re-invent the content onto the whiteboard for something which is copy and paste..
