    3. 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.

    6. 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.

    7. 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?

    8. 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.

    9. 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

    10. 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"

    11. 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…

    12. 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.

    13. Ensure Screensharing works

      Sometimes someone will share their screen while on a skype call and I find that I don't see it, the only to resolve this issue is for me to disconnect from the call and rejoin, then it works.

    14. Display call participants as a list (like Windows client)

      Show a list of the names of participants in conference calls, including which are muted, which are talking and which are presenting content, like Skype for Business for Windows.

    15. Improve reliability

      Reduce the number of times I get kicked out of a call. Internet connections for other applications are working but Skype business is not an effective communications tool. Sound is distorted, or video goes in and out or I get kicked out. Am thinking of switching.

    17. Warn me before telling me it cannot send

      Skype will happily let me tap away typing a message then when I hit send will instantly tell me "We couldn't send this message"

      How about warning me BEFORE I start typing?

      This one really catches me often.

    18. We need the ability to Set Status options in Skype for Business for Mac users - increase the time to change automatically

      We need the ability to Set Status options in Skype for Business to increase the time before it changes automatically to idle or away. Five minutes is too little and is unpractical

      For Mac users

    20. File transfer on Mac

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