    1. Don't require 2 Seperate Steps to Share Desktop

      We regularly have presenters who think they have shared their desktop only to find that there is one more window waiting for their "final confirmation" that they want to share their desktop. This is clunky. Please either eliminate the second prompt or make it more fluid/obvious to the would-be presenter.

    2. Better use of monitor real estate for viewing shared content for SfB

      Better layout or a full screen content option when sharing and viewing content in SFB. There is currently more SfB window than content. It can be similar to the Surface Hub interface.

    3. In case of issues to join a meeting, enforce Web App access point by adding the parameter "?sl=1"

      The parameter "?sl=1" is generally unknown from basic end-users (most of people).

    4. Outlook Plugin Skype Meeting Options should match Meeting options OWA

      When creating new Meeting and setting the meeting options, we can easily do this via the Outlook SfB Plug in. But not all meeting options are available. Hybrid environments where on-premise Lync/SfB accounts get invited to a meeting and needs to join as presenter by default is not possible when creating the meeting through the Online Calendar (via the browser). Specifically the "Who is a presenter: Anyone (No restrictions)" is not available in O365 but is in the plug in.

    9. Add two way content sharing to the video interoperablity server

      Add two way content sharing to the video interoperablity server for SfB server 2015.

      in the present version, there is only content sharing 1 way. since Cisco and Microsoft uses different protocols here. So please fix this, so that the users can enjoy sharing content between their Microsoft and Cisco solutions.

    11. Screen Sharing: Huge, (with a 24pt font capital "H") functionality gap

      Just looking at the drop down list of possible categories helps explain why the functionality is so lacking in what is possibly the most important part of any collaboration software package - the value you add by allowing people to see (not hear - we still all have phones) what anyone on the call is doing.

      If you look at any product on the market - Webex, Joinme, GoTo Meeting - they all without exception have a common denominator of allowing the participants on a call to experience the full screen of the presenter (if that is what they want…

    12. Full screen mode by double clicks

      Today, this feature is only available for desktop sharing but not for PPT sharing. Intuitives actions = better end-users experiences

    13. In the Pick a Layout button, there should be 3 options. 1) Content (do not show participants), 2) Participants, 3) Content & Participants.

      The only way to see just the content is to expand the screen with the full screen view, but I don't want the full screen to cover my other screens. Give me a non full scrren view that shows only the content. I don need to see the participants.

    14. Improve the flexibility of the individual search functional. Should be able to find by first or last name or a combination.

      It is more difficult to find the user I want to Skype with or add to a meeting because I have to start with their first name. I should able to quickly find someone by first name, last name or a partial combination. For example, Lotus Notes user lookup functionality seemed to do this much better.

    15. Skype meeting options will automatically change

      Annotate PowerPoints = Everyone I use this setting and then the setting somehow changes back to "Presenters." This has all the signs of a bug. Seemed to notice this when Lync switched to Skype for Business.

    17. I am having a horrible time not seeing other people's presentations and cannot find a help fix anywhere on the web!; Windows 7, IE, Skypefor

      Cannot see shared presentation by other SkypeforBusiness user. IE; Windows 7; can see attendees, they can see my screen when I share but I cannot see their screen. Only white square where video should be. Tried to search on internet and Microsoft Support but no help or troubleshooting tips exist.
