    1. Enable Outlook media player for Skype 2019 / Cloud Voicemail

      When migrating to Exchange / Skype 2019, UM goes away or to the cloud. The cloud will handled the voicemail and transcription well; however when received in Exchange 2019, the message does include the inline media player in outlook.

      This adds training as well as a custom workaround to what has been a nearly transparent migration for end users.

    2. More grandular control on voicemail syncing with other app

      Would like ability to decide what other apps (Outlook, Teams, mobile skype) that I would like to sync my desktop app to. Want a record of calls in one location. Want no records in other locations. Or if i do have records then if I delete in Outlook or Teams it won't delete back in Skype for Business.

    5. Title your conversation

      When looking through conversations with peers, it would be useful to name or title a conversation relating to a task or project for example. This would help to recall conversations in a hurry, and pick up on old ones.

      *This should be an optional feature*

    8. iOS Managed Aplication Configuration (MDM)

      Starting with iOS 7. The ability to push remote configuration to apps for iOS was added. This is achieved by an MDM Server (Intune) pushing key value pairs to a MAC compatable app.

      Whilst the functionality has now been added to Intune/SCCM to support this. Skype for Business as far as I am aware doesn't allow this functionality yet. Recently SFB allowed MAM support. It would be great to be able to pre-populate users Skype for business credentials driving down calls to Servicedesks by using MAC.

    10. If chat window is minimized and you have new messages then on maximizing chat window, we have to scroll down to view new messages.

      If chat window is minimized and you have new messages then on maximizing chat window, we have to scroll down to view new messages. It does not show up. Chat messages should get automatically scrolled.

    13. Clear SIP Attribute

      Currently if a SIP is cleared from on-prem AD, AADConnect does not clear the value in AzureAD. If the SIP value is used on another account (as a SIP, smtp, or upn) then a sync conflict occurs and the new account stops syncing. The new account currently remains this way unless you sync a unique non-conflicting sip value to the original account. This makes account merges and migrations painful.

    14. What is the default Time Frequency for Skype (for Business) to save IM's to conversation History folder in Outlook ?

      Am looking for a way to save the conversation in outlook folder as soon as it arrives in the Skype (Especially, When am not active in Skype)

      That way , Even if i miss the conversation in Skype i get notified in E-mail stating that "Missed conversation from.. so and so.. and the text".

      With the current setup in place, am getting notified via mail in some 10-15 min.(when am not active in Skype)

      Is there a way to reduce this time frame ?

    15. Divert

      We should add an option to divert Skype messages just like we do call divert on our mobile phones. The Skype message forwarding option will be useful reason being in businesses sometimes we have to leave our work station to meet someone and during this time we miss our new conversations. A user should be allowed to set forwarding option from personal account or by using other profile through some authentication.

    17. Response Group Routing Options in SFB Online - serial\round robin

      The call queue\attendant routing option isn't good enough. Most of our use cases are based on traditional hunt groups with serial routing. Would like to see the online call queues offer options similar to what we had on-premise!

    18. Modern Authentication for split-domain deployments between Skype for Business Online and Skype for Business Server2015 on-prem not supported

      Modern auth for the mobile skype client itself works fine. Our conditional access policies are working as we designed them (only allowed to connect from a managed (intune enrolled) device. From what I understand, is after the client is running it attempts to contact EWS for free/busy information, and that’s where it falls apart.

      On the link about “Apps supporting ADAL / Modern Auth” I see Exchange Online, but I don’t see EWS. I think where this isn’t working is from Skype mobile client to Exchange online – ‘modern auth’ doesn’t work between those two applications.

    19. Support Multi-forest, multi-exchange, multi-SfB deployment in Hybrid configurations

      Currently SfB supports multi-forest, hybrid SfB configurations so long as there is only a single global Lync/Skype deployment.

      We have 60k seats of SfB Online that we cannot use today, as we have 2 federated orgs, both hosting separate LYNC/SKYPE deployments (Acquired through M&A) and are blocked in consolidating them due to the multi-Country compliance & regulatory considerations still being weighed.
      We have tested it, we know it works (with exception to federation breaking) and we need it supported PLEASE :)

    20. Create documentation to migrate from onpremises to Skype for Business online.

      This article is good. However, it's missing details about certain attribute changes that must be in place so an account is properly provisioned if using AD Azure sync.

      https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/praj/2016/03/25/migration-of-skype-for-business-hybrid-environment-to-skype-for-business-online/

      1. Add SIP value to proxyAdddresses attribute
      2. Ensure all msRTCSIP- attributes are <not set>
