    1. Add Skype for Business Federated Contacts to Teams Contact Groups

      When migrating from Skype for Business to Teams Only mode we noticed that any federated contacts in groups in our Skype for Business client DONT get migrated when a user is switched to Teams Only mode.

      We have to type the full SIP address of any federated contact when using Teams and we CANNOT add federated contacts to a group in Teams client.

      The transition from Skype to Teams should include this as we have several users who rely on federation with external domains and have plenty of contacts in their client

    2. AutoAttendant & CallQueues - Manually activate Night Mode or out of office hours mode

      For MS Phone system auto attendant and call queue functionality, there should be some option/method available to manually enable-disable "night mode/office closed/out of business hours"

      Once activated a different greeting can be played to callers and further new calls can be handled accordingly.

      Note:- This is different from regular out of office hours and holiday settings in AA & CQ

    4. SFB 2019 Enterprise Pool with two nodes not possible in Topology Builder

      I am trying to deploy the new SFB2019 in my lab. For testing purposes, my SFB2015 lab was a 2-node Enterprise Pool. Microsoft has always recommended a 3 node pool, but two nodes is allowed and works.

      Now I am trying to build a two node SFB 2019 Enterprise Pool, but the Topology Builder says:

      • Two computers are not supported in Front End and Director pools. At least one or three and more computers are required.
      • Registrar:fepool2019.pod5.local

      I cannot find this change anywhere in the SFB2019 documentation. We actually have customers running a 2 node pool for basic…

    8. There needs to be an option to opt out of having a skype, or asking before auto generating a username for a skype account.

      I don't understand how there is not an option to remove an auto generated skype username, if you are not planning to use this service. If I just want to use my Microsoft account for word and excel, there is no reason a username with my email address, linked to skype is a necessity. Not only is it not an option for it not to generate. You cannot have it removed once it has been generated. This is insane.

    10. Create an all user installer for Skype Meeting App

      I cannot install the Skype Meeting App as a regular user. I can switch to my admin account to install the app but it only installs for that user account. If it could be installed for all users this would be much easier to manage as it could be done while imaging.

    13. Office 365 user should be able to access consumption billing without having a SfB calling plan

      Consumption billing should be available for users who are not on a SfB calling plan.

      For Example, One of our users in in the office on only 2 afternoons per week. We want them to be able to use a phone whilst in the office however, to do so, they need to have a Cloud PBX subscription and a domestic calling plan. This users need to use the phone is limited but we still need a full subscription.
      It would be better if they could participate on a pay as you go basis by using the consumption billing to cover…

    14. You shouldnt be able to sign into multiple devices simultaneously.

      You shouldn't be able to sign into multiple devices simultaneously.

      Currently I am logged in on my development surface, my workstation in the office and on my phone. Sometimes I get a message on my cell phone but not on my desktop. Or if I see the message show up on my phone and I try to respond on my surface the end user says it just sends them emails and not an I'm. Also skype calls ring where it wants and not on the device I'm actually using.

    15. "Working Elsewhere" Status according to Calendar

      For people on the road (especially consultants), the "working elsewhere" status in the calendar will default Skype for Business as "Available". However, working Elsewhere does not necessarily meant that you are available. It would be great to add another status to Skype for Business to represent the "Working Elsewhere" properly.

    18. When two people call each other simultaneously, just connect the calls automatically.

      Really often me and my teammates end up calling each other at the same instant. Due to this there's a bit of a lag and often we both end up disconnecting our call attempt to answer the other persons call. If we just connected to each other, it would really speed things up.

    19. Need the ability to be able to register customers outside of our business when we are having a broadcast. Today this feature does not exist

      Need the ability to register customers and see their email addresses so we can communicate updates on broadcasting features or publications. As well as have the ability to track their usage and invite them, communicate new broadcast etc. I can do this with GoToMeeting, GoToWebinar. But this feature does not exist in Microsoft's platform
