    1. Warn when trying to send message when not viewing latest messages

      When having a long text conversation, often I will scroll up the messages to look at what my colleague sent to me previously. I can lose track of what the latest message was and accidentally reply to an old message.
      Please give me a warning when I try to send a message and am not scrolled down to view the latest messages.

    2. 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".

    3. 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.

    4. Allow multiple attendees to share screen at the same time

      Sometimes we have to compare files and switch who shares the screen many times instead of allowing multiple attendees to share at the same time and allow each of them to choose who screen they want to look at and for how long. Everybody reads thinks in different way and different speeds.

    6. Worldwide Callin numbers on meeting invites (not just in a link)

      Based on Company size, allow for meeting invite to include more than one geographic local number.

      This is huge for large multi-national companies

      Ideally, this would include the ",,????????#" meeting ID to speed up login, as clicking for other numbers does not necessarily show the meeting ID

      ROI: Seconds per meeting, per attendee for multi national calls, which also reduces stress/annoyances for people calling in outside of their preferred time zones

      This is in response to the note:
      "There can be a maximum of one toll and one toll-free phone number on the meeting invite for a meeting organizer, but…

    7. 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.

    8. Meeting reporting for attendees

      617051993407607
      For auditing purposes, it is necessary to have information about people who attend skype meetings and how long they participate in the meeting. We would like a function/script/report that provides this information.

    9. SFB Meetings: Call Me At feature - Goes to Voicemail

      When people use the Call Me At feature and then don't answer their phone, it rolls into their Voicemail, disrupting the meeting going on.

      I understand that in some cases, all attendees should be muted, however, in collaborative meetings this isn't possible.

      Is there any future plans to add in a feature, similar to other Teleconferencing solutions, where when utilizing the Call Me At feature to join a meeting audio would prompt the user to Answer, and then select 1 or # or something, before they are connected to the meeting?

    10. Live Stream Skype for Business Meeting Video/Audio

      We would like the ability to live stream our Skype for Business meeting video and audio feed on our website and social media platforms, like; Facebook Live, YouTube, Livestream, Ustream, etc..

      At minimum, we would like the ability to embed the video on our website. The only way to broadcast video and audio to an external source; such as; livestream, FB, YT, now is to use a Desktop capture video software. We would hope Skype would give us access to an API library that would allow us to directly connect the video/audio feed to these streaming platforms directly.

    11. Incoming Call and message notification

      Make the center of the screen an option for incoming call and message notifications. Limiting the to only the corners causes then to often get missed. (This is what regular Skype does)

    12. Audience 'laser pointer' during screen sharing

      When a Presenter screen shares... and I need to provide instant feedback - I'd like to interact with the Presenter's screen in a read-only / visual only manner... like a 'laser pointer'.
      Use case: Customer is sharing their screen and I need to direct them where to go... words can't always describe exactly where to 'click'... but a laser pointer can be a leap of an improvement.

    14. Join Conference call in Skype Desktop app by only having the conference id

      Sometime there is no link available because the email with the skype meeting was formatted from html to text. You then only have the conference ID. The only way then to join is via phone but the screen sharing capabilities are not good because of the small screen.
      There should be a way to join a conference via the skype desktop app only having the conference ID ready.

    15. Reporting on Skype for Business meeting attendees.

      At times it is necessary to report on the people that attended a specific meeting. This functionality is currently lacking in Skype for Business.

    17. Skype Conference Call - Launch a Timer on screen counting down the time based on length of call

      Hi - would it be possible that when a conference call is organised - when all dial in that a timer appears on screen counting down the time to zero based on the length of the original meeting times. This will help colleagues to really focus on their points and ensure that the meeting does not over run. The timer should be visible to ALL on the call.

    18. Update statuses to 'Do Not Disturb' or 'Presenting' when sharing secondary monitors

      It may be through design to update the status when only using a primary monitor. Statuses should be updated regardless of any monitor that is shared. There are times where I share a secondary monitor and do not want to be disturbed when I am presenting.

    19. Add one (1) minute snooze reminder.

      Now skype has five minute and zero minute reminders. Five minutes is too early but "now" is too late. One minute should do the trick.
