    1. Pause the screen sharing at receiving end

      When the presenter shares the screen, at the receiving end, i may want to pause the screen sharing. If i am using mobile data, i can reduce the usage this way. and sometime stopping/pausing the video may improve voice clarity.

      • VBSS - server feature request

        Enable a feature in Server to not allow client users to receive content that can't support VBSS; thus stopping the fallback to RDP . It would be great to inform the client they are not able to receive content until they upgrade their client version which does support VBSS.

          • Alter the video so participants appear to make eye contact when they look at each other in the Skype window

            When people talk to one another in person, they often make eye contact both to show they are listening and to read the facial reaction of the person they're talking to. When people are in a Skype call, they tend to look at the other person's eyes in the Skype window for the same reason. But since the camera isn't placed where the Skype window shows that person's eyes, both participants get the impression that the other person is looking away.

            It would improve the personability of Skype calls immensely if the app could deduce when the user is looking…

              • Breakout Rooms are still needed!

                Please make breakout rooms a reality for Skype For Business- this is a key feature that is missing and most other meeting platforms have this- Zoom and Adobe Connect Pro to name a few.

                • Attendance list for Skype Meetings/Trainings

                  The ability to download a list of participants that attended a Skype meeting or training (Including external participants) would be VERY MUCH appreciated. Using Skype for business for training is difficult without this option available (besides Ctrl+N, which only includes the internal participants and lists external participants as 'Guest'')

                  • Create a mechanism that would periodically check and sync meetings and options between Outlook and Skype's DB

                    It would be awesome if there was a mechanism that would periodically check and sync meetings and options between Outlook and Skype's DB. This would allow meeting options to be changed without Skype being open and logged in. It would also address any corruption issues in the Skype DB.

                    • Incoming Call and message notification

                      Make the center of the screen an option for incoming call and message notifications. Limiting the to only the corners causes then to often get missed. (This is what regular Skype does)

                        The current deployment does not support to make online meetings via OWA if Exchange is still on premises. The button is missing.

                        • Join Conference call in Skype Desktop app by only having the conference id

                          Sometime there is no link available because the email with the skype meeting was formatted from html to text. You then only have the conference ID. The only way then to join is via phone but the screen sharing capabilities are not good because of the small screen.
                          There should be a way to join a conference via the skype desktop app only having the conference ID ready.

                          • Allow reoccurring meetings in web scheduler

                            We are only using Skype for business via O365, the web scheduler doesn't have the ability to schedule reoccurring meetings. Without this capability, we will not be able to move forward with Skype for Business or wait until we migration to exchange online which is not planned currently.

                              • SFB Meetings: Call Me At feature - Goes to Voicemail

                                When people use the Call Me At feature and then don't answer their phone, it rolls into their Voicemail, disrupting the meeting going on.

                                I understand that in some cases, all attendees should be muted, however, in collaborative meetings this isn't possible.

                                Is there any future plans to add in a feature, similar to other Teleconferencing solutions, where when utilizing the Call Me At feature to join a meeting audio would prompt the user to Answer, and then select 1 or # or something, before they are connected to the meeting?

                                • Time on a broadcast meeting CSV report to be the same as the timezone of the meeting

                                  At present if you download the CSV meeting report after a Skype broadcast meeting has taken it place it downloads with UTC timings which means it isn't accurate the timezone the meeting took place in. Please alter this so that the report details the time information for the timezone the meeting occurred on.

                                  • Skype Meeting Broadcast Registration

                                    Anonymous attendees is really about having an unsecured meeting. We would still like to capture the names of attendees. It would be nice to have pre-registration or at the time of joining capture of the attendees name and email.

                                    • Add one (1) minute snooze reminder.

                                      Now skype has five minute and zero minute reminders. Five minutes is too early but "now" is too late. One minute should do the trick.

                                      • Restrict end meeting

                                        We often meet for "office hours", where all attendees are intentionally presenters, so that they can share their screens and show us their issues or ideas. Unfortunately, sometime folks click " ... | End meeting" when they leave, which closes everyone out, forcing others to rejoin.

                                        We would love to have a way to restrict the End Meeting function, or at least prompt someone hitting it that they are ending the meeting for everyone. (Perhaps another design choice would be to display "Name has ended the meeting", so at least we could educate them.)

                                        • Allow better recording resolution. Options show 720p and 1080p, but upon playback it is VGA quality.

                                          When running Set-CsConferencingPolicy, it shows the following two options:
                                          Parameter- MaxVideoConferenceResolution

                                          ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                          Indicates the maximum resolution for meeting video. Allowed values are:

                                          CIF. Common Intermediate Format (CIF) has a resolution of 352 pixels by 288 pixels.

                                          VGA. VGA has a resolution of 640 pixels by 480 pixels.

                                          The default value is VGA.
