      • Drop down selector for note

        It would be better to have a drop down for writing a note to the skype where you can frequently switch or change your status to as a WFH or leave or personalized quotes etc. instead of deleting and writing every time.

            • Need to export Skype for Business Sing In / Sign Out activity report

              We can able to export Skype for Business reports from O365 portal. However it would be really great if we can export Skype for Business users Sing In and Sign Out activity from any report.

                • Trouble Joining? Try Skype Web App - invite via web calendar

                  What happens:
                  When sending an invite from the browser version of Calendar, the Trouble Joining link is missing.
                  Instead, include the Trouble joining link.
                  This will enable us to hold meetings with external parties who do not have the app.
                  The link is the same as the invite link but with ?sl=1 at the end.

                    • IMO, the Skype we have is not production quality.

                      Here are the outstanding issues I have with Skype for Business that IBM Sametime (S/T) doesn’t have.

                      Session discombobulation. This takes more than one form, all of which are disorienting and time consuming. Most frequent: losing the session, no doubt because it cannot recover from network errors that S/T takes in stride. Reestablishing the session often opens a new window, fracturing the active log stream. I can count on two hands the number of time S/T lost the session in 6 years. It is an every other time occurrence when Skyping to India. The worst: Skype’s “combination disabled wait/deadly embrace”…

                      • Make Skype for business work with the Surface Pro

                        Seriously. Google it. Skype for business has had problems identifying the camera on Surface Pro machines for two years. They are both MSFT products. It is unacceptable that the only workaround based on MSFT support guidance is to disable the rear camera on the Surface in Device manager.

                        • Unicode encoding for Skype Meeting Broadcast CSV

                          Currently reports exported from Skype Meeting Broadcast do render latin characters with diaeresis correctly (characters like Ä, Ö, Ü, É).

                          For example, in the CSV generated by Skype Meeting Broadcast, Ä is rendered as &#196.

                          These special characters are used in personal names. The CSV is very hard to read and annoying to process in Excel because of this issue.

                          • Show Caller ID on external incoming calls PLEASE

                            Show contact name in addition to phone number for incoming external calls. It is huge disadvantage to move to Skype for Business & lose CID

                            • Labels for favourites

                              Hi, a suggestion for development. The ability to add a tag/label to a name in the favourites list in Skype for Business. I often add favourites for people that can help me with various issues (we have 400,000+ employees), however their job titles dont help me find them again.... Id like to label them for things such as "AMEX help" or "Accounting help"... Maybe a hover-over popup, or ability to customise something when moved to favourites

                              • Keep everything VISIBLE whether we are on chat screen or call screen

                                Keep everything VISIBLE whether we are on chat screen or call screen - means do NOT HIDE any functions - such as while calling the chat screen disappears. WHY?????

                                This simple change will solve LOTs of problems from user's perspective.

                                I am frustrated with the NEW version because we cannot revert back to previous version. WHY??????

                                • Since the latest Skype for business update, screen sharing is dropping in conferances

                                  When sharing our screens, after an indeterminate time (could be 1 or 60 minutes) the Sharees will lose visual to the Sharer's screen after which the Sharer must re-share the screen. The issue is cross platform (Mac, PC, Skype online, Teams) and the issue happens on multiple networks. (wifi or lan connected) Issue happens in high percentage of screen shares (about 90%) ever since the last update.

                                        • Make audio/video settings intuitive in SfB Web App

                                          Ability to change audio/video options in a clear and concise way, without the user having prior knowledge of an app to use.
                                          Today it's hidden behind a couple of icons once you've joined the meeting, making it difficult for users to correct the settings if they cannot hear or be heard in the conference.

                                          Suggestion: Audio options could be displayed under a text heading making it crystal clear where to click to check/change the settings.

                                          These controls should also be present while in the lobby, enabling users to verify their audio connection before entering the meeting.

                                          • Add an easy option to change Away timer

                                            After maybe 5 minutes of inactivity in Office 365, my status gets changed to "Away" even when I'm present and working, usually with other 365 apps open!
