        • 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.

            • Enable Offline IMs for macOS clients

              Enable Offline IMs for macOS clients. This should Not be a feature that only applies to Windows users.

                • 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

                  • Outlook reminders should open SfB client, not web.

                    When Outlook for Mac shows a reminder for a SfB meeting, it has a button to join the meeting. But it inexplicably doesn't open the meeting in the SfB client. It opens a web browser, and then you have to do more clicks to get the meeting to open in the SfB client. These two applications should work together more closely.

                      • 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.

                        • Do not require enabling wifi to set a location on Mac client

                          Stop requiring that WiFi be enabled when detected on a Mac system. All Mac Pros have WiFi but many businesses operate these systems as wired and do not use the WiFi functionality as a security precaution. This prevents me from setting a location because the Mac client detects the WiFi and requires its use to enter the location.

                          • Multi race options for 'people' emoji's on Skype. And not a default of Caucasian!

                            Why are all of the Skype 'people' emoji's Caucasian? Shouldn't it be a given to have a mixture of race options and not a white default? I am Caucasian and I find it offensive that a person of color has to no option that represents them in the Skype communicators. It absolutely baffles me that I even have to ask/suggest this.

                                In Skype for Business there ist no Option to show Status "Online" only. This could be very important if you have a lot of contacts.

                                • 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…

                                  • Make "New and Improved Skype for Business Windows Notification" available for Mac

                                    In 2016 a new feature was added to Skype for Business in Windows updates. We use this feature heavily at my job, as all employees receive calls to multiple lines and there is a hierarchy of answering different lines. When I work from home on my Mac, I'm not able to take calls at all because I can't see what line the calls are coming into, where on my Windows PC at work, I can.

                                    • Do not delete conversation history when deleting 'Missed conversation' email

                                      When I don't reply or acknowledge a chat message, I receive the conversation history via email (ok, sometimes this is useful).
                                      When I delete the email, the conversation usually also disappears from Skype - this is not useful and means I cannot clean up my mail inbox.

                                        • Notify when specific person send a message on a group.

                                          We have a Skype group for all employees. HR of the company occasionally posts important message in the group. All the other time this group is noisy with jokes typical social interactions. I want to mute all other conversation except notified from HR.

                                          • Private Relationships and Profile Picture

                                            Can you please add the feature similar to PC to have privacy relationships so that if you want "urgent interruptions only" from a select group of people you can get those? Also, can you please allow for Skype to share the updated profile picture or be able to easily allow you to change your picture when need be?
