        • Just make the Mac version have the same options as the Windows

          My coworkers keep stating features on windows that I cannot find in the Mac. You should be able to change all the same settings as window and see all the same functions. It is time to make them the same.

            • Fix whatever causes the "We couldn't send this message" in the middle of a 2 way conversation. Obviously it was delivered.

              In the middle of a 2 way conversation you get the message "We couldn't send this message" but the person answers back so obviously it was delivered.

              • Enhance idle/away settings for Mac

                Please allow Skype for Business for Mac users to adjust the amount of time it takes for the status to appear as "away" when the computer is idle, or to turn that feature off completely. Sometimes, my job entails reviewing hard copy documents. I may not be using my computer, but I am still working (and available). I would like to be able to adjust this setting or turn it off. It looks like this is an option for PC. Why not Mac?

                • When clicking 'Join A Skype meeting' link - offer the option to download Skype for Business

                  When clicking 'Join A Skype meeting' link in a Skype for Business meeting the standard option offered is to download Skype Meetings app. Once downloaded, when entering the Meeting URL, the app asks to download a plug-in, which downloads a file called Skype Meetings App and will not install. So I cannot join the meeting. Additionally, it would be good if Skype for Business app download was the first option as that seems to work well on MAc

                  • Turn Off Missed Conversation Emails

                    Allow users to turn off missed conversation emails or just fix them. You know there's a bug in the system.

                    • Join Meeting Audio "Call me at" fails 100% after a Skype Room System joins

                      The Join Meeting Audio popup has 3 options:
                      1. Use Skype for Business (full audio and video experience)
                      2. Call me at: [phone number]
                      3. Don't join audio
                      Option 2 "Call me at" works great if you are one of the first individuals to join the call. If you join the call -after- a Skype Room system (a physical conference room with specialized hardware) joins, then the "Call me at" option will fail 100% of the time. You will be in a limbo state where you hear audio through the computer (as if you'd selected option 1) but cannot be…

                      • Mac : Keep conversations in same thread

                        Skype for business usability is BAD.
                        Keep the same behavior as regular Skype.

                        CONVERSATIONS
                        Keep the conversations on the same thread. Stop creating separate threads for no reason.

                        HISTORY
                        Keep history of the conversations. So we know what we were talking about when we open the chat again.

                        ADD PEOPLE TO CONVERSATION
                        As in Skype, adding people should create a new chat.

                        MESSAGE SEARCH
                        As in Skype, let me search my messages history.

                        That basic usability features anyone would want. If Skype can do it. Skype for business can do it was well.

                        DO IT GUYS.

                        • I want to edit my status timeout vs. having it default to 5 minutes! This sucks

                          I need to control my timeout period. Just because I don't touch my mouse after 5 minutes doesn't mean i am not available or "away"

                            It's unbelievable that such a basic function is not yet supported on Mac, while working well on Windows.

                              Fix MacOS Mojave support.

                              Currently SfB client on MacOS Mojave doesn't always request the access to microphone correctly, which prevents SfB from using audio properly. Now this can be fixed only by manually hacking the TCC.file.

                                • Add Skype for Business for Mac to be downloaded from Mac App Store

                                  With Office 365 being able to be downloaded from the Mac App Store, the one omission from a business perspective is Skype for Business. Please make it available as a download from the App Store.

                                  It makes updates cleaner for me; I don't want to have the Daemon's running for Microsoft Office Updater if I don't need to.

                                  • The animation of the thumbs up/thumbs down emojis are gross

                                    The animation of the thumbs up is a little gross (motion of the way the thumb raises/hand bounces up and down). The thumbs down is a little better, but still bounces up and down.

                                        • Configure Where to Save Conversation History

                                          Today if you move to a new Mac, you loose all Skype for Business for Mac (SfBfM) conversation history. If you have to completely delete & reinstall SfBfM you lose all conversation history. If you are on another device, you can not access conversation history that was on your Mac & vice versa.

                                          I propose options either client by client or service admin for organization policy to direct where to save conversation history.

                                          Some options would be :
                                          Save to One Drive to sync between all devices
                                          Save to Exchange Conversation History
                                          Save to a new service in Skype for…

                                          • Proper support for Mac and iOS clients

                                            I am appalled at how much functionality is left out of the Mac client. As a Skype for Business user, I expect simply to be able to exchange messages, make calls, record calls, share my screen and give or take control. The fact that so much is missing from the Mac client tells me Microsoft is not serious about multiple platform support. This is something you better rectify quickly, or alternatives will start to pop up. The Mac client must be totally equivalent to the Windows one, feature by feature.
                                            All the same applies to all mobile clients, especially the…
