    1. Block specific functions on offline messaging

      I would like to block some part of the offline messaging function without changing the policy to do so. More specifically, I want to block showing the IM window which indicates that offline message has been sent when inviting the offline user to the meeting, but at the same time allow users to send IMs to offline users.

    2. Fix the skype crash

      Select an OOO contact in ur skype list. Expand their OOO message in Skype. Select few letters from that text and click on Ctrl+A. And you will see Skype crashing after multiple dancing!! This I noticed on Win 10 Pro with Outlook and Skype for business.

    4. Keep meetings that are in progress under the meetings tab until they are over.

      It would be helpful to keep meetings that are 'underway' still displayed under the meetings tab.

      This would be useful to those people who are always a few minutes late to a Skype meeting. When you don't have any upcoming appointments, it says "You don't have anything scheduled. Enjoy :)". However, if a meeting is schedule for 2:00pm and it's 2:01pm, technically you still have a scheduled meeting that you're just late for.

      If the tab could display meetings that then disappear after the meeting end time, that would be a small change that would be very helpful. Thanks.

    5. Add function for identifying final attendees

      Unable to use information within the "scheduling assistant" of the initial invite because not everyone that accepts actually shows up.

    6. The best way to improve Skype for business is to keep it and not to migrate to Teams

      The best way to improve Skype for business is to keep it and not to migrate to Teams. I am really struggling trying to get in contact with other Skype users. Other skype users can see I am online but I can not see them or answer a call, neither by Skype or Teams. I had to create a personal Skype to get in contact with other Skype user. the other skype user had no skype for business. This mean I can no longer get in contact with other companies by skype or teams.

    7. Collaborate in Skype Meeting couldn‘t record the enrollment name of the external partners when they participate in with Skype for Business W

      Collaborate in Skype Meeting couldn‘t record the enrollment name of the external partners when they participate in with Skype for Business Web App. After the meeting, I find many enrollment names have been recorded as Guest in the 'Conversation History' in my Outlook.
      I suggust enrollment names of these external partners could be recorded.
      Thanks.

    9. 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.

    10. 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.

    11. Breakout Rooms are still needed!

      Please make breakout rooms a reality for Skype For Business- this is a key feature that is missing and most other meeting platforms have this- Zoom and Adobe Connect Pro to name a few.

    12. 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.

    13. 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!

    15. External contacts for SfB Meet Now

      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

    16. 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.

    18. Provide an interop functionality in Skype Meeting Broadcast with 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.

    19. Possibility to point on presenters screen

      When discussing a drawing for example, it would be helpful that also the clients can point on the screen and their mouse position is shown.
      This will give a Feedback to all participants above what detail the client is talking.
      Mouse is shown only if the client press the mouse button. Each client has its individual pointer (name, colour).

    20. 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.
