    1. unified searching between Chats and Contacts for Skype for Business for Mac

      It would be useful if the search in the "Chats" tab allowed you to search through all contacts.

      One thing that's a bit counter intuitive in the UI is how the search bar works. When I click search in the "Chats" tab, it only searches through active chats. When I click search in the "Contacts" tab, it searches through contacts. Usually, if I want to chat with someone, I would be in the chats tab, click on search, and would want to search for anyone, irrespective of whether I've chatted with them in the past (or if I deleted a…

    2. Only show current conversations

      When I click the conversations, I want to only see the current ones. Keep the history list separate as indicated in many other comments. Much like the Windows client. This is the failure of this client on a Mac. If you mirror the layout from Windows, this would flow better.

    4. Allow scrolling back in history of meetings

      Running v16.2.156. Yesterday someone scheduled an all day Skype meeting, which means the time ran from 12 AM that day to 12 AM the next day. They sent out invites to the meeting at a time like 9 AM. The meeting was not available in the Skype list of meetings. I assume this was because it was more than 6 hours since the start of the meeting. There should be probably be checking for a meeting still being in session before removing it from the list. A fallback on this would be to allow scrolling backward to prior meetings. This…

    5. Need option to save the contacts by UserName

      I am trying to add contacts to my Skype for Business and they only show up as phone numbers. As I have hundreds of contacts, this will not work for me from a business perspective.

    8. Bug report: with Mac screen sharing only possible in conference meeting, not in two-person chat session

      With Windows PC you can share screen when you are chatting with one person and are not in a conference call.

      In a meeting with a Mac user you first have to do conference call./ meet now conversations.

    9. date along with time for chat messages

      The chat windows shows the time a message was sent (or received), but it doesn't show the date. It could omit the date for messages coming in the current day, but from prior days, I'd really like to know when the message came.

    10. Notifications should clear when conversation is marked read

      If you miss a chat message, by default you get a Notification Center notification, an icon badge, and a badge in the "Chats" view of Skype for Business. If you use anything other than Notification Center to get to your missed chat, the notifications in Notification Center don't auto-clear. They should, as other apps do this.

    11. Allow screen sharing on Instant Messaging without video or voice

      According to Skype support, screen sharing is not allowed on IM and requires voice or video connection. This is easily solved by starting a call but is cumbersome and non-intuitive. Screen sharing should be allowed on IM only as it increases productivity. https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA10932/i-have-a-problem-with-screen-sharing

    13. Clean design (return PREVIEW style)

      The PREVIEW was way better than latest versions. Preview was really native looking, clean and consistent to Skype (not for business). All these dark blue colors and 1px line icons make client look strange, inconsistent, not native and cheap. Please, oh please return PREVIEW style.

    15. Incoming Call Notifications are not very visable on the Mac client

      Incoming call notifications on the Mac client are very easy to miss and are not very visible. Feedback we're getting is people prefer how Cisco Jabber does this.

    16. Global keyboard shortcut for 'search for contact'

      What I see as the most important keyboard shortcut, is missing. That is the ability to search for a contact no matter where you are in the app.
      I'm thinking the flow should be:

      • E.g. Cmd + f or Cmd + Option + f to active the search field no matter where you are in the app.

      • Use key up and down to run through the search results and then

      • Enter, to either start a chat or call the person.

      It must be a top 3 used function to (1) go to the app and (2) find a contact to…

    19. IOS 10 skype for business call kit support

      With ios 9 most applications (like viber or messenger or skype) would pause when someone used to call via a normal call.

      Now all those apps are part of the integral call kit control so the calls appear as normal calls and call waiting is activated when a second call arives ,

      The CallKit SDK allows incoming calls from third-party VoIP apps to appear on the iOS lockscreen just like a standard cellular ID does.

      Incoming Messenger calls show the caller's Messenger, skype,viber profile information alongside controls like mute, keypad, and a speakerphone toggle. On answering a call, users are…

    20. Stop hiding important info behind buttons

      I can't see who is in a meeting - and messages at the same time. Constantly switching between at the beginning of meetings is really annoying.

      Why are they even behind "tabs'? Hangouts manages this neatly enough. Even Lync 2011(!) manages it.
