    1. I do not want to show profile photos to users outside the organization

      When you hold a meeting, the photos are made available to users outside the organization.
      Publish only to users in your organization, not to users outside your organization.

      The client is as follows.

      Skype Conference app
      Skype for Business mobile app
      Skype for Business client for Mac

    3. More Emojis

      Please add woman shrugging emoji!!! Is so much need it at the workplace. We need more emojis to express our thoughts in a friendly way. Sometime our words are out of context because we cannot included a good emoji. Especially when you work with out of state team members. Please use all phone emojis possible and add them to Skype. Thank you!!

    5. Skype for Business Admin Center Reporting

      I want to ask about Skype for business admin Center reporting option. It did now allow us ( As confirmed by your agent reply on ticket) to get report of team members that includes complete call history, dropped calls details and voice messages detail. Currently reporting option only includes dialed calls and received calls history, it did not shows dropped calls details and voicemails.
      So if you can add this options that will be really helpful for our organization.
      Regards,
      Saqib khalil.

    10. Bring back support for Skype Web on Linux, Firefox and non-Chrome browser

      It's foolish to support MS Edge & Chrome only because Skype is already on Windows 10 by default AND not everyone likes Chrome.

    11. display skype meetings phone numbers as hyperlink, not plain text.

      Skype meetings created in OWA (and newer outlook client versions - eg. 2016) must display phone numbers as hyperlink, not plain text, as they seem currently to do. This is a change from earlier versions of outlook/owa, which displayed correctly. Staff find the plain text format very confusing (phone num,,access code#)

    12. Allow outlook calendar to schedule reoccurring appointments on random dates. This should be as easy as copy and paste.

      Allow outlook calendar to schedule reoccurring appointments on random dates. Basketball games always occure on Sundays at 1:00pm but not every Sunday and not on a fixed schedule for example. Should be as easy as copy and paste.

    14. Allow meeting attendees "outside my organization" or Everyone (No Restrictions) to be configured as Presenters before sending meeting invite

      Allow meeting attendees "outside my organization" or Everyone (No Restrictions) to be configured as Presenters before sending meeting invite. Currently you can only make attendees outside my organization Presenters after you launch the meeting. It would be helpful to allow that option as a pre-configured option when setting up the meeting.

    15. Skype for business web app on mac should request permission to access microphone

      Skype for business web app on mac should request permission to access microphone.
      Since for now we join meeting via SfB, ppl cannot hear our voice since SfB did not have access of microphone on MacOS Mojave.
      Skype should fix this issue.

    16. Displaying how many minutes/hours Available in Chat Window

      We have option to display how many minutes or hours the respective associate is away or offline. Why don't we have the option of displaying the number of minutes or hours the associate is "Available". If skype displays the number of hours availability of the associate, it will helps him to understand about his dedication in front of his superiors at the same time he can plan his work accordingly.

      Hope if such option is enabled, it will increase the productivity of most of the teams.

      Also it will avoid unnecessary demotivating factors for the associates. For example, if the…

    17. Please do something about the users remaining as if they are signed in after sign out

      Please do something about the users remaining as if they are signed in after sign out. This happens all the time and I have checked logs and nobody logged in when this happened.

    18. 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.

    19. Make the Skype Web App compatible with Linux via plugin

      Whilst we are waiting for Microsoft to do a full Skype For Business Client for Linux perhaps supporting the Skype Web App for Linux via plugin would be easier? Note MAC supports both the Web App and Full Skype for Business client so it must be possible.

    20. Hide my Picture option does not hide your picture if an attendee opens meeting via s4b web app

      In your S4B client a user configures to hide my picture. If you setup a meeting and a attendee opens the meeting via the webapp, the attendee is still able to see the picture.
      The user still assumes the picture is hidden but this is not the case.
      Please make a change, if you hide your picture it is actually hidden.
