    1. It would be nice if SFB worked

      I have SFB as part of my clients Office 365 installation. I was extremely embarrassed when I could not add a contact that was not part of the organization. I've been in the IT business for over 20 years and I could not for the life of me figure out how to add a contact that was not part of the organization. The client we were trying to have a meeting with suggested that we use the free version of Skype "because SBF is a pain in the @$$ and doesn't work". What use is SFB if you cannot do…

    2. full size meeting mac

      If viewing a presentation (screen share) on a Mac you can only make the window so big. On the Windows S4B you can make the other person screen as big as your monitor allows.

    3. One window per chat for one contact

      I am seeing multiple chat windows for a single contact when using Skype for Business on my mac. This occurs when I have a chat window open with a contact but in the background. They send me another IM and I see the preview and, upon clicking the preview, a second chat window for the same contact is now opened.

      I'm not sure why the system would be setup this way but it is hard to keep track of the chat conversation since I have to now look at two windows versus one. This seems like it would be a…

    4. Ability to 'request control' from SfB Mac client

      Remote technical assistance would be greatly facilitated if the SfB client could allow 'request control' in a screen sharing session.

    5. Make chat work on the Mac

      I don't know if it is like this with the Windows client or not. But on the Mac at least, the system opens several different chat entries for the same contact. So after several weeks of use - I have multiple chat entries for every contact I chat with. I figured I would work around it by simply deleting the old ones, but they keep coming back. I'll have my chat window all cleared out, and next thing you know - those 50 chat entries I deleted (on at a time, since you can't delete multiples) are all back.

      To…

    12. Screenshare performance is bad for Mac version. It is choppy.

      The screenshare performance is so bad that no one can follow presentations especially when the presentation involves detail and moving parts like code reviews.

    13. Preferences in Skype for Business for Mac are not even close to what Lync has

      The level of customization from Lync to SfB for Mac is a fraction of what it was. There are far less options in SfB for Mac.

    14. Allow to send mail from template after direct message on Skype failed.

      After your messages failed because somebody is not available.
      http://imgur.com/Wbn0qQb

      Let me click on the button to send the same message via mail.

      PS: Or maybe just allow messages caching.

    16. handle copy/text paste for chat transcripts better

      I keep notes extensively in a text file (Emacs org-mode) and from time to time want to capture a portion or all of a chat transcript via the clipboard. For text paste from the clipboard, it would be nice if each message were separated by a blank line and it put each message with sender and time as a single line of text. Ideally, the user and time would come first with a colon/space, a few spaces, or a tab, like this:

    17. Share to Skype in Safari

      Please make it possible to share a web page and/or other things natively to Skype.

      OneNote have implemented it perfectly from Safari through the native share button.

    18. Online Meeting Access Permissions not being respected

      In the current production release of Outlook (15.30) and the latest insider builds of Outlook (15.31 and 15.32), when signed into Skype for Business (16.3.240) and creating an Online Meeting, the default setting for Access Permissions is to set all members of your organization to Presenters. When people join the online meetings, everyone should join as Presenters but are instead joined as Attendees. Please fix :).

    20. Notification sounds play from multiple speakers

      I use a bluetooth headset for calls. There's no way to play notification sounds from another speaker (such as notebook speakers). Because of this I constantly miss incoming chats and calls. I know the PC client has this, please bring it to MacOS.
