    1. Enable DTMF Relay for AVMCU Calls

      DTMF works fine in 1:1 calls. When a call escalates to a conference call on the AVMCU, DTMF tones no longer relay. This means that if two people are on the phone and add a third party that has an IVR menu, the DTMF tones do not relay. Please add support for this functionality in some capacity.

      • Audio indication for each participant's mic

        Provide audio detecting indication/indicator next to each participant.

        Helpful to know who is speaking (if you're not familiar with everyone in a meeting) or perhaps making an unintentional noise.

        • Microsoft Audio Conferencing - Organizer Name announcement issues

          We have been having issues with Microsoft Audio Conferencing for Skype for Business for more than 4 months now. I did enable the option record name when a person enters or exits the meeting. Initially when an organizer or participant dials into the conferencing number, their phone number is announced instead of their name. It took Microsoft support close to 2 months to fix this issue. But the problem remained for organizers name announcement. We still get to hear the phone number for the organizer instead of their name. Its been more than 2 months and no resolution or ETA…

                • Allow Users to Change Default Audio Conferencing Number Displayed in Meeting Invites

                  Other conferencing platforms (WebEx, Zoom, etc.) allow the user to log in and change the default Audio Conferencing number that appears in their Skype for Business meeting invites.

                  Skype for Business Online should offer this feature in the same UI that allows the user to change their PIN and view other Skype settings.

                  Currently, this is something an administrator has to do via the Admin Portal or via PowerShell. There NEEDS to be a way to delegate this to users!

                      • Customize Prompts in Conferencing Attendant

                        OCS supported custom announcements, but that feature appears to have been deprecated. The standard announcements can be vague and confusing. For example, when a meeting is full, there's just a generic "cannot connect ... try again later" message. This can be frustrating to the caller. It would also be helpful to customize branding in the greeting.

                          When I am in the same room with one colleague and both on a call with someone else, I would like to have the option to turn off sound for the person near me, because I can hear his voice anyway

                          • Skype Broadcast - Outlook Invitation needs a CC & BCC option

                            Skype Broadcasts 'Create Outlook Invitation' does not include the option to CC or BCC attendees. This exposes all email addresses included in the outgoing message. This makes it unusable under GDPR compliance and protection needs.

                              • Make the Organizer Audio Conferencing pin optional

                                We use Skype for Business to communicate within the organization only and so is the 80% of the time Audio Conferencing is used. Some of the users who host a meeting and are organizers don't want to enter the PIN during audio conferencing as the conference ID is already dynamic and are feeling at as inconvenience.

                                Thanks

                                  When sharing/review of a video in a skype meeting, the participants can not hear the audio/sound on it.
                                  Instead you have to send the link by chat, but then all participants have to leave the Skype meeting and view the video in a browser

                                    • Enter Conference ID via Voice Recognition

                                      We should be able to enter the conference ID via voice recognition. Some networks (mostly misconfigured enterprise phone systems) do not pass the DTMF correctly to satisfy Skype's recognition engine, meaning users might not be able to enter conferences.

                                      Adding voice recognition when prompting for a conference ID on a PSTN call would help alleviate these issues greatly.

                                      • Recording device volume drops

                                        I have a Polycom CX100 speakerphone. It's worked perfectly with SfB for a long, long time. Some update seems to have been made in the last week or so that, on a new call, the input level drops from around 80% to 40%. I can have the level window for the device open, and watch it drop once I join a call. every time, I must readjust it so people can hear me!

                                          • Re-Enable Ability to Convert from Dynamic to Static Conference IDs

                                            I was told on the phone by MS Support that converting from Dynamic to Static Conference IDs is no longer supported by Microsoft as of March of 2018. We would like to be able to leverage the Skype Audio Conferencing without the requirement of actually scheduling a meeting through Outlook. When attempting to run the 'Set-CsOnlineDialInConferencingTenantSetting -UseUniqueConferenceIds $false' cmdlet you receive a "You are not permitted to invoke Set-Cs....... with the following parameters: UseUniqueConferenceIds". They claim this is now by design - you have to generate a Skype Meeting from Outlook in order to receive a Conference ID.
