    1. iOS Push notification should not be readable by Microsoft neither by Apple

      Push notifications are encrypted at the transport layer BUT when they reach Microsoft Notification Service in the Cloud they are opened and visible in clear before being sent to APNS on a TLS connection. The same occurs at Apple beofre the push notification is transmitted securely (TLS) to the Apple device. We consider this as a risk of data leakage at Microsoft and at Apple and ask Microsoft to extend their Push Notification method with the possibility to anonymize all or part of the content. The most critical content is the body of the IM as it is sent for…

          • file share

            I added 200 students to a Skype for Business chat and I had to delete and go to another app, because it doesn't have file sharing option on phones.

              • Once your device is registered (same as Outlook for Office 365 on a PC) can you please allow touch login? This feature is really safer.

                Once your device is registered (same as Outlook for Office 365 on a PC) can you please allow touch login? This feature is really safer for customers who are having to be on meeting while commuting.

                • SFB Mobile should use Outlook Address Book(s)

                  I have a SFB Phone plan and would like to be able to call my Outlook Contacts. I curently see no way to make a Skype call from Outlook or call an Outlook Contact from Skype.

                  Related, I should be able to call from any address book which is configured in an Outlook Profile (GAL, Shared, or Public)

                  I do not want to use the phones native address book, which are my personal contacts.

                  Similar to this but NOT integrated, shared

                  • iPad rotation left handed

                    Client does not rotate horizontal when held left handed on new iPad Pro 11 inch. It rotates all directions except one. Left handed is when the magnetic pen is on the left side

                    • Background replacement

                      Please add the ability to replace the background on supported platforms (such as Apple IOS 12 devices with appropriate hardware).

                      Similar to the Chromacam approach but native in Skype/S4B.

                      • Some improvements for the IPad Pro users

                        I use Skype for Business daily for my day job and I have switched for the most part to the iPad Pro. I would be awesome to have these features for the iPad/iOS app

                        1. Enable split screen and slide over.
                        2. Enable screen sharing for meetings and 1on1 chat. Presenting through files is ok but most of my use case is sharing web apps. So it will be nice if I can share chrome or safari during meetings

                          It will be nice if we have option to turn on "Video Capable" while logging in from mobile.

                          • See who call is for in S4B app

                            When answering a call in from the desktop client can see who the call is from and to. When answering on the mobile I cannot see who the call was for until after it is answered so I am not sure if I'm answering a call for myself or someone else when I am out of the office.

                              • Please continue to make the newest versions of Skype for Business on iOS available for older devices like the iPhone 4S

                                Please continue to make the newest versions of Skype for Business available for older iOS devices like the iPhone 4S. New iPhone 4S sales by Apple were only stopped fairly recently (2016!)

                                The version I have on my iPhone 4S is 6.17.6.1. When I attempt to update to the latest version (6.22.1 as of Oct 2018) in the App Store, it states "Unable to Purchase" and "Skype for Business is not compatible with this iPhone". Yet I am still able to update other apps from other vendors on the iPhone 4S - why not Skype for Business?

                                  • Don't require phone number when first signing in

                                    Currently, when first signing in to Skype for Business on iOS (and presumably, also Android and other phone platforms), the app **requires** you to fill in a phone number to start using the app.

                                    This is not the case for the Desktop Application.

                                    However, I don't with to route any calls to my phone number if I'm not available, and consequently, I don't want to provide my phone number since it should not be necessary.

                                    The 'Provide your phone number' screen should be skippable.

                                    • Native iOS call presence

                                      It would be good when you make or receive a native call on an iOS device that the presence in Skype for Business iOS client updates with in a call automatically, the same way that it would if the call originated within S4B. I would have thought this would be possible with the integration the apple callkit integration.

                                          • A video call via 4G line network to be available when a guest user joins in a conference

                                            Office 365 users can initiate Skype video call and share contents by changing the app setting when singing in to a conference by using Skype for Business app for iOS connected via 4G line network. On the other hand, guest users are not able to change their app setting when they are signing in to Skype for Business app for iOS as an anonymous user, so they are unable to do video call unless using Wi-Fi connection.
                                            It would be convenient if guest users can use a video call feature via 4G line, so I would like you to provide…
