    1. File transfer on Mac

      It's unbelievable that such a basic function is not yet supported on Mac, while working well on Windows.

    2. Team Call Groups for Mac Users

      At the moment a Team Call Group is not available for Mac users. This is a very important feature and we really need that in our office.

    3. 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.

    6. Skype for Business: Pop Culture Emojis

      Skype for Business: Pop Culture Emojis
      - Jedi Emoji
      - Superman
      - Batman
      - Mighty Mouse
      - Hunger Games

      You get the idea. These would convey a meaning & story with a single emoji.

    7. 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.

    8. 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…

    9. Configure Where to Save Conversation History

      Today if you move to a new Mac, you loose all Skype for Business for Mac (SfBfM) conversation history. If you have to completely delete & reinstall SfBfM you lose all conversation history. If you are on another device, you can not access conversation history that was on your Mac & vice versa.

      I propose options either client by client or service admin for organization policy to direct where to save conversation history.

      Some options would be :
      Save to One Drive to sync between all devices
      Save to Exchange Conversation History
      Save to a new service in Skype for…

    10. Bring Privacy Relationship to the mac Client!

      I'd like to change the privacy relationship of several teammembers so that they can contact me even when I am on «do not disturb». Works on windows, but not on a mac.

    11. 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.

    12. 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.

    13. Problem with adding a Presenter to an online Meeting (Outlook 2016 Mac & Skype 4 Business Mac)

      I don't know how to submit a Bugreport for Skype for Business for Mac, this is now my 4th try to get this solved.
      (After Outlook Support, answers.microsoft.com and social.technet.microsoft.com)

      Hi all,
      I’m not able to add Presenter to a Skype 4 Business for Mac Meeting in the Meeting settings (in Outlook).
      When I try to add someone from my company I get the error message attached. This error is already some months and versions old.
      I’m using S4B 16.22.175 and Outlook 16.16.3
      In the background we use a Lync 2013 Server.
      My account is working fine if I use…

    15. Use across multiple emails

      I work as a consultant for 6 companies and have different emails for each, all of which I work on in Outlook. However I can only set up meetings (e.g. individual video coaching sessions) with Skype for Business on my primary account, which is confusing for the clients. Would be so much simpler if I could use it across all my diaries/emails.

    18. Need to have "Change Image" option after an image got uploaded.

      Some time we need to upload an updated version of an already uploaded image, but don't want the receiver to see the previous version and just to see the new copy. Current option we have is to first remove the previous uploaded copy and then re-upload the new copy. Wouldn't it be so nice if "Change Image" option could be provided instead?

    19. Screen sharing flipping

      The screen sharing would he greatly improved if the screen share could be flipped with a single button, so that the two parties could switch whose screen is shared easily.
