    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'')

      • 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.

          • 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 ?.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • Provide an interop functionality in Skype Meeting Broadcast with Cisco Video Meeting system

                      I would like to use Skype Meeting Broadcast by utilizing the Cisco Video Meeting system.
                      I checked that I was able to use other video meeting systems with Skype Meeting Broadcast but Cisco so that I would like to request the solution to function with Skype Meeting Broadcast.

                      • Ping attendees who haven't yet joined the meeting

                        As a meeting organizer I find myself reaching out to meeting attendees to see why they aren't yet in the meeting. It would save me a ton of time the meeting organizer had a 'ping' button that would either send email or a private IM message to any attendee that accepted the meeting invite but has not yet joined the meeting.

                        • Enable Music on Hold in Skype Meetings for participants joining through Skype for Business client.

                          We are able to enable MOH before the meeting starts in Skype Meetings via PowerShell command Set-CsClientPolicy -Identity global -EnableClientMusicOnHold $True but this only enables MOH for participants that dials in to the meeting. Please enable for SFB participants.

                          • Add Entry/Exit Text Announcements to Conversation/Discussion

                            Would like to see the announcements to be text-based and logged within the meeting conversation rather than voice interrupts. This allows all participants to be notified of the comings/goings of participants - logged with date/time stamps, and does not interrupt the flow of a voice discussion or presentation materials. This also provides an audit trail for meeting organizers out of the box of who showed and when.

                            • Easier way to conference with non 365 business clients

                              Please, please, please can you guys find a more simple way to add normal Skype clients to a business conference call!

                              This thing with having to send out invites and then wait for ever for them to see and accept, only to find they have to join via some website which never works properly! And hour later and they still haven't had the meeting! IT get's into SH*T because of it! Drives us insane!

                              If you have and pay for the Business package, you should be able to call and conference with whomever you want to without all the hassle!

                                    Why has having external participants join a Meet Now become so complicated? All I want is for an external invitee(s) to open a link and join the meeting - how hard can that be? Local apps, versions, types.....arrgh

                                    • Estimation Tool for Story Points (like planning poker)

                                      The polling Feature is great but not comfortable to use for SCRUM plannings (set up every poll, only 7 choices). A seperate tool would be great.

                                      • participate chat alert in toolbar

                                        Block the alerts of the constant chat posting within the meeting but be able to still receive alerts from others or individuals that may be in meeting but not posting in chat. Block Only the CHAT post alerts as the constant blinking in task bar makes me thing someone has pinged me but its just people posting in chat in meeting. So I'm having to constantly check it to see if anyone else is there. Very annoying when trying to work and attend meeting.

                                        • Warn when trying to send message when not viewing latest messages

                                          When having a long text conversation, often I will scroll up the messages to look at what my colleague sent to me previously. I can lose track of what the latest message was and accidentally reply to an old message.
                                          Please give me a warning when I try to send a message and am not scrolled down to view the latest messages.

                                          • Remove "Manage Content" and Add a Paperclip

                                            During every national call, we have several people ask where they can find the content being shared. When we used Lync, it was obvious or someone could just say "it's in the paperclip" which was easy to find. Now someone has to explain where the attachments are buried or someone has to email the content to the participants. Please make it easier to find the attachments.
