    1. Add Skype for Business for Mac to be downloaded from Mac App Store

      With Office 365 being able to be downloaded from the Mac App Store, the one omission from a business perspective is Skype for Business. Please make it available as a download from the App Store.

      It makes updates cleaner for me; I don't want to have the Daemon's running for Microsoft Office Updater if I don't need to.

    2. 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"

    3. 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.

    7. 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

    8. 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.

    9. Responsiveness issues on Mac

      The mac version is very unresponsive. When you click the sign-in button in the beginning, nothing is happening on the UI for seconds, no user feedback, busy indication - nothing. Can't you just offload some of the heavy lifiting from the UI thread and put it into background threads that communicate asynchronously?

    10. 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.

    12. 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…

    13. 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

    16. Show only online contacts

      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.

    20. The animation of the thumbs up/thumbs down emojis are gross

      The animation of the thumbs up is a little gross (motion of the way the thumb raises/hand bounces up and down). The thumbs down is a little better, but still bounces up and down.
