    1. 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'')

    3. View more than five video meeting participants simultaneously

      Currently the max number of participants shown in the gallery in a Skype video meeting is five. Increase this number so that a larger group can see video of all participants. We regularly have meetings with 10-20 participants in Skype video. Would be great to see everyone simultaneously.

    4. Skype for business Group IM for Offline members pops out a seperate Chat window

      The recent updates with Office 2016 Skype for business is showing a small annoying bug on group IM.

      Office 2016 Version: 16.0.10730.20264

      When we addressed a message to Group, an invitation is sending for offline group members by popping out in a separate chat windows to show that they are Offline.

      https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_sfb-mso_win10-mso_o365b/skype-for-business-group-im-for-offline-members/49653511-4a9c-41ef-a5c9-a0e387425235?tm=1547833080895&rtAction=1547832891030

      Previous version doesn't behave like this , Is this a feature or a Bug ?.

    8. Live Captions and and Subtitles in SFB

      It would be great to have live captions & subtitles in Skype For Business, on the lines of Skype. We work in geographically distributed teams so folks with their first language not being English could gain the most from a meeting.

    9. Enable a person running magnification software to share their screen without others seeing the magnified screen

      In Windows 7 (Skype for Business 2016) you could run magnification software and share your screen without recipients seeing the magnified screen. In Windows 10 this has stopped. Now all recipients see a magnified version which has become unworkable.

    11. Prohibit content sharing only when having Skype meeting with certain external users

      I would like to ask you to implement a feature to prohibit content sharing only when having Skype meeting with certain external users. Currently, if you prohibit content sharing by setting meeting policy, you cannot share any content regardless of internal and external users.

    12. Sort options in the participants box

      Sort options in the participants box for message, audio, video and presentation status. this would help identify quickly who is not mute with background noise, presenting, etc.

    13. poll - hide answers from other participants and only make them available by presenter

      in a poll today, even if you as presenter want to keep the answers visible only to you - this is not possible. all the participants see what the others have voted - and they vote the same :) this is making the poll useless, in the end. it would be nice if the presenter is the only one who sees how many votes were given to each option - and make this visible to the participants when needed.

    15. Block specific functions on offline messaging

      I would like to block some part of the offline messaging function without changing the policy to do so. More specifically, I want to block showing the IM window which indicates that offline message has been sent when inviting the offline user to the meeting, but at the same time allow users to send IMs to offline users.

    16. Fix the skype crash

      Select an OOO contact in ur skype list. Expand their OOO message in Skype. Select few letters from that text and click on Ctrl+A. And you will see Skype crashing after multiple dancing!! This I noticed on Win 10 Pro with Outlook and Skype for business.

    18. Keep meetings that are in progress under the meetings tab until they are over.

      It would be helpful to keep meetings that are 'underway' still displayed under the meetings tab.

      This would be useful to those people who are always a few minutes late to a Skype meeting. When you don't have any upcoming appointments, it says "You don't have anything scheduled. Enjoy :)". However, if a meeting is schedule for 2:00pm and it's 2:01pm, technically you still have a scheduled meeting that you're just late for.

      If the tab could display meetings that then disappear after the meeting end time, that would be a small change that would be very helpful. Thanks.

    20. Add function for identifying final attendees

      Unable to use information within the "scheduling assistant" of the initial invite because not everyone that accepts actually shows up.
