    3. Chats marked unread - unable to change

      Skype was freshly updated this morning to version 16.1.456. I am not completely sure this problem did not exist prior to that but I first noticed it today. I have numerous chats marked as unread (red dot). This persists even though I open the individual chat conversations and be sure to scroll to the bottom. I cannot find a way to mark the conversation as read. My top level chat button also has a red dot, probably rolled up from the individual chats.

      Though you may think this is similar to this idea: https://www.skypefeedback.com/forums/358488-preview/suggestions/17207231-mark-chats-as-read,
      but it isn't really.

    5. Bring back the option to 'show messages in same or separate window'

      from update 16.1.456 you have removed the option to select whether to show messages either in the main window or separate window, I know some people have asked for this as the default but I just want the choice. For me right now with federated customers I can no longer just click 'join' to join a regular meeting, only for internal meetings, this was possible previously as I could see the contents of the meeting invite on the right hand side, but now the setting is to 'show all messages in a separate window' I no longer have the choice…

    6. Possiblility to edit sent messages

      In the same way as I can edit/delete messages that I have already sent in normal Skype, I would like to have the same functionality in Skype for BUsiness

    8. (possible bug) cannot remove chat invitee

      If I add a new invitee to a chat by accident, 'remove participant' is grayed out from sub menu when I right mouse click on the added invitee if the invitee hasn't accepted yet.

      If a user has accepted invite and is in chat, I can remove them.

      However, if I add invitee by mistake, I should be able to cancel invite or remove invitee even if they haven't joined or accepted.

    9. Missed conversation emails should not be sent if you didn't miss the conversation

      When working in a different app, when a chat comes in, you get a nice notification in the corner of your screen. All good, you know about it, then can get to it later.
      Within a minute, you already get a "Missed conversation" email. I'd only expect a "Missed conversation" e-mail if I am not logged in (as Active?) in any client

    10. Voicemail Playback

      In SfB on Mac, voicemail plays through internal Mac speakers, not my USB headset. Headset is set as the default in audio/video prefs, so voicemail is not honoring the prefs selected. More options in audio/video prefs would be nice.

    15. Tag for Status Changes

      As a Skype for Mac Business user, I want to tag IM members for status change notifications so I can follow up when they become available.

      This is already available by right-clicking in the Lync client.

    16. <Tab> key for navigation

      You should be able to use (or enable it optionally) the <tab> key to change focus between the different panes/dialog boxes, etc. for mouse-less navigation.

    20. Skype for Business for Mac Release date????

      As an organization we are updating all of our Lync backend infrastructure to the latest and greatest version. In conjunction with that upgrade we are looking to roll the latest SFB for Mac client out to our OSX users based on a strategic decision to be inline with our Windows users. Can you supply an actual release date for the software as all i can find is Q4 2016?
