    1. 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.

      • Show a histogram of talk time by each person on the meeting

        We use Skype for Business at work extensively and it is very common to see 1-2 people hoarding all the meeting time. This happens even if none of them are the actual presenters. It is possible that many of these people are unaware of their behavior and also unaware that they are deterring other people from speaking. Having a visible histogram of everyone's talk time will enable people to self-regulate. This will improve the quality of meetings and allow many diverse views to be heard.

            • Use full screen when presenting

              When presenting a PowerPoint or sharing a screen, Skype for Business wastes a lot of useable screen real estate on top, bottom and sides of display (monitor, projector, etc.). Makes it harder to read and doesn't seem to provide any explainable advantage. Using WebEx, Join.me, etc. every pixel of the display is used to show a PowerPoint. Would like the same capability with Skype for Business.

              As a user, I would like to display a PowerPoint or screen share using the entire screen so that my meeting attendees can easily view the material being presented.

              • Option to set meeting status to Do Not Disturb in addition to In Meeting

                When I am in meetings, i want to ensure that I am not disturbed. However, today, I have to remember to set the status to DND if I want to ensure that no one tries to bug me. It would be nice to have a settings option that allows you to select the default status for meetings.

                • 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 meeting invitation settings - Add option for multiple Logo URLs and legal URLs based on business division

                          Skype for business meeting invitation settings. We want to know if the Logo URL, Help URL, Legal URL settings can be changed per business division within a company that owns a tenant. Possibly do this by the primary SMTP address or the SIP address.

                          • Skype Group Screen Share - MultiShare

                            Would enable collaboration, bring communication closer, and allow processes to move faster.

                            This could useful for discussions where multiple individuals need to share their screen, to work in parallel on joint process. Active simultaneous screen sharing with previews. Group sharing navigation through the meeting window.

                            • Same control as Conferencing Policy in meet now

                              Meeting that was promoted by adding third person and "meet now" are not controlled by conferencing policy.
                              Meeting settings is hard-coded and cannot be changed before holding a meeting.

                              I want to hold a meeting with meeting settings aimilar to conferencing policy even at meeting that was promoted by adding third person and "meet now".

                                Microsoft recently included NDI in recent update to the consumer skype version. Is there any plan to bring this to the skype for business client. As an E5 customer, Using this in conjunction with Skype broadcasts would be fantastic. To be able to use mutilple inputs with skype broadcasts via the skype for business client would be brilliant (even if via software such a Xsplit!) users want a simple and easy way to include various content and data in to one audio and video stream for skype broadcasts

                                • Skype Broadcast needs to allow for calls with Pins & Allow External domains

                                  Skype Broadcast needs to allow for calls with Pins & Allow External domains. In this scenario you have subsidiaries you want to join the call you can not added them as their not on the same tenant. It would be nice if you allowed federation between authorized domains, or had a way to create SkypeBroadcast distribution groups the could contain external email domains. Example: ComanyA.com CompanyB.com CompanyC.com all different tenants you can not offer a SECURE, or Semi-Secure Broadcast... Only option is anyone with link can join as you cannot added external email addresses to the invite.

                                  • SkypeBroadcst and multiple displays

                                    In a skype broadcast it would be nice to have the presenter\meeting manager to connect that pc to an external video source, and get the content on a secondary display. In this case when the broadcast occurs you have people on site and remote, the onsite location requires a second pc joined as guest... it would be easier if that was not the case.

                                      • Skype Meeting Broadcast sign-in

                                        Like when people sign in to a Skype for Business call using the web app, requiring people to sign in with their name and other demographic information when they enter a Skype Meeting Broadcast.

                                        • 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.
