    2. Improve Skype? Make it work first.

      Hello,

      Let me start by saying that Microsoft has ruined Skype for business.
      I am sure that regular Skype works well. I have used it in the past to call my parents and had no problems. Even my parents who are not tech savvy, were able to use it.
      This application has made me look like an incompetent employee over four times in the last 3 days. Not only me but my boss too.
      We are extremely dissatisfied and frustrated with the entire application.

      I could say it just doesn’t work at all, because that would be the honest thing…

    4. Extend the connection time when joining to a session as a guest

      When you join to a session as a guest, you will be disconnected in 90 min.
      So, it would be nice to have a feature that admins can change the connection time at will.

    5. Set the expiration date for SfB meeting URLs

      I would like to change the default expiration date for SfB meeting URLs. By default, the life cycle is 8 hours for Meet Now, and 14 hours for one-time meeting. If we set similar meeting titles for several meetings, those easily gets users confused to access the wrong meeting. It would be great if I can set any expiration date for each meeting.

    7. Enable a person running magnification software to share their screen without others seeing the magnified screen

      In Windows 7 (Skype for Business 2016) you could run magnification software and share your screen without recipients seeing the magnified screen. In Windows 10 this has stopped. Now all recipients see a magnified version which has become unworkable.

    9. poll - hide answers from other participants and only make them available by presenter

      in a poll today, even if you as presenter want to keep the answers visible only to you - this is not possible. all the participants see what the others have voted - and they vote the same :) this is making the poll useless, in the end. it would be nice if the presenter is the only one who sees how many votes were given to each option - and make this visible to the participants when needed.

    12. Add "Request Screen Sharing"

      Like we have the option to "Request Control" it would be really nice to have an option "Request Screen Sharing".

      Main reason is because talking from a support organization, some users are not skilled enough to know how to share their screen. That will save a lot of time explaining every time how to do it.

    13. Problem sharing virtual desktop that covers dual monitors

      Here are the conditions needed to reproduce a desktop sharing problem:


      • Log in to a computer with dual monitors (ex: my home computer)


      • Do a remote desktop connexion with "mstsc.exe /span" to another computer with dual monitors (ex: my office computer)


      • This way, I have access to my entire office desktop when I work from my home.


      • When I attempt to share my desktop with SKYPE, it thinks I have a single desktop with a resolution or 3840 X 1080, it no longer give me the choice to share my left or right monitor. The other party is unable to…

    14. Messages Read - Indicator

      Can there be a tick Mark similar to Whatsapp embedded to show whether the message has been seen by the intended person? In offices, where Lync is used as the main medium of communication, it becomes imperative to see whether the messages has been read, as people dont see it sometimes or act as if they have not seen it

    15. Turn on video by default

      I want to be able to set up Skype for Business so that it turns on the webcam on each call automatically.
      100 % of calls in our company is with video, and eveyone just wastes time turning on the video or reminding the other side that they forgot.

    16. Prohibit content sharing only when having Skype meeting with certain external users

      I would like to ask you to implement a feature to prohibit content sharing only when having Skype meeting with certain external users. Currently, if you prohibit content sharing by setting meeting policy, you cannot share any content regardless of internal and external users.

    17. Auto Join Skype Meetings

      Auto Start Skype meetings: I use Skype in conjunction with outlook for meetings throughout the day, as I work remotely for a software company. Meeting reminders are typically 15 mintues prior as set by the host, and I often lose track of time and join meetings late. It would be a huge timesaver and asset to have an option that starts Skype meetings automatically, or call me. I don't want to join early else I am forced to chit chat with everyone else on the phone who joined early, where I really need to keep working on a project up…

    19. 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.
