    1. Allow us to set 'mute' as the default for joining a meeting.

      When joining large meetings, the first minute or so is usually people dialing in, we hear their background noise, then they click 'mute.' There should be an option to default our mics to 'mute' so we don't have to manually do it every time.

    3. See colleages while presenting

      In Skype for business when I share a presentation (share desktop or share window) I cannot see the other meeting attendee's... Why? Is there a way I can do this as it is key that I see the others and their reactions. It is possible on other platforms

    4. Display meeting PIN in "Location"

      When you create a new Skype meeting, put the PIN in the "Location" so it can be viewed without opening the meeting. Right now it auto-populates with "Skype meeting" which isn't as helpful.

    6. View all rate my call survey results so we can investigate those with bad call quality

      Currently CQD reports on "rate my call" survey results monthly but its not enough details. With Skype Online we cannot actively view whom rated the calls bad to investigate. If call quality has become an issue across the business we would like to see who's ranking the calls 1 or 2 / 5 stars so we can determine why the experience was bad.

      The only purpose to investigate the individual call/conference, the users name can be anonymous if it can link us to the call itself then it would be either a 50/50 guess or even more to whom left…

    7. 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. 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'')

    9. Make Skype for Business more like Zoom!

      Skype for Business is not good. We are forced to use it because we use Outlook and it is free. It does not announce people joing the meeting. It's call back feature does not work good. Some people want to view the presentations or shared screens but want to dial in and not use the computer.

      To try to set meetings using Outlook is impossible. The text shared to customers is poor. Sending invites is poor. All in all, it is poor. Copy Zoom or even WebEx and life would be better

      The list goes on and on. It is…

    10. Implement the Mute function to all the attendees

      I would like to use the Mute all attendees option or a similar function on the Skype meeting created form Outlook on the web or Web Scheduler other than Outlook client.

    11. Need a public information of Skype Meetings App

      If you join a meeting as a guest via Skype Meetings App and verified users are not on the meeting (which means the attendees are guests only), you would be disconnected from the meeting in 90 minutes.
      Additionally, if you sign-in to Skype Meetings App with the Office 365 account as a verified user, you would be disconnected from the meeting in three or four hours.

      Therefore, I would like to have a public information about the Skype Meetings App disconnection.

    12. Want to change the organizer of the recurring Skype meeting schedule

      It would be great if User B could take over the ownership of the recurring Skype meeting item that was originally created by User A.

    14. User Defined Announcements

      Create radio buttons to allow for users side meeting configuration to use Tones, Names or None for entry and exit announcements.

      Would also be good to set options for entry and exit, exit only or entry only announcements.

    15. Extend the time connected to Skype Meetings App

      If you join a meeting as a guest via Skype Meetings App and verified users are not on the meeting (which means the attendees are guests only), you would be disconnected from the meeting in 90 minutes. Additionally, if you sign-in to Skype Meetings App with the Office 365 account as a verified user, you would be disconnected from the meeting in three or four hours.
      It would be great if I could continue the meeting without disconnection via Skype Meetings App in Skype for Business Online.

    16. 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.

    17. 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.

    19. Improve the window sharing behavior in Skype meeting

      Assume that you are sharing your window in the Skype meeting with opening two Excel files (full screen) at the same time, and you share file A first. When you switch to share file B by selecting it from the taskbar, the window shows the file B for the barest instant then it goes back to file A immediately. I would like you to improve this behavior for users to share appropriate file in the window sharing as expected.
