    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. Navigate me directly to the Skype for Business meeting from the mtg URL

      We are always navigated to the web browser before we join the meeting on SfB client when you click the SfB meeting URL. It would be convenient if we can directly access SfB client to join the meeting without going through the web browser.
      If you are using Mac device, you can manually change the meeting URL to join it. It would be also great if I can modify the meeting URL on the Windows device as well.

    5. 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.

    6. 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.

    8. Communication within offline environment

      Implement a feature that can use Skype for Business communication under the condition that the Internet is not available in times of large-scale disaster.
      This request may be difficult to become a reality, but we need this feature without through the Internet in case of having on-premises environment.

    10. Edit meeting titles

      I would like to set a meeting title when sending instant messages for group chat in bulk or when initiate a meeting using Meet Now feature on Skype for Business client.
      I know it is possible to set the meeting title by creating Skype meeting from Calendar in Outlook client. But it would be nice to have the feature on Skype for Business client as well.

    11. 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 ?.

    13. Show the meeting title

      I’m having a trouble with showing the meeting title on Outlook client for which was created with Outlook on the web. Also, the title won’t be shown when joining the meeting via Skype Meeting App regardless how you create the meeting. I would like you to meeting titles to be always shown regardless how we create the meeting, or how we join the meeting.

    15. Set the expiration date for SfB meeting URLs

      I would like to change the default expiration date for SfB meeting URLs. By default, the life cycle is 8 hours for Meet Now, and 14 hours for one-time meeting. If we set similar meeting titles for several meetings, those easily gets users confused to access the wrong meeting. It would be great if I can set any expiration date for each meeting.

    17. 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.

    20. Add "Request Screen Sharing"

      Like we have the option to "Request Control" it would be really nice to have an option "Request Screen Sharing".

      Main reason is because talking from a support organization, some users are not skilled enough to know how to share their screen. That will save a lot of time explaining every time how to do it.
