    1. Watchernode.msi cannot be installed on 2019

      Please check the Watchernode.msi installer file for SfB 2019. If you've ran the installer and it failed (for example power loss, lack of rights, anything) but it has created a task to the task manager then in the future if you try to rerun the installer then it will stuck on step "Creating task in task manager" during the installation. It only works if you delete the created task by the installer from earlier. When the installer fails it should cleanup everything which was installed or configured till the point when it got an error.

    2. Automate removal of delegates from Skype for Business

      When a delegate is added in Outlook to view/create/edit another user's mailbox via Delegate Access, Skype for Business automatically picks up the new delegate and adds them into a Delegates Group in Skype for Business. The Delegate will then notice that the delegator is has been added into a newly created group called "People I manage calls for". When the delegate is removed from Outlook as a delegate, Skype for Business doesn't automatically remove the delegate from any of the newly created groups. The delegator needs to complete this task manually. My recommendation is that this process becomes automatic.

    3. Support for Multiple Inbound CLI's/DDI's

      Provide support for users who have migrated in (ported in) numbers from legacy PBX installations who previously had multiple inbound DDI's for different office locations.

      ie: Support having voice numbers in Edinburgh, London, Paris etc. all routing to same user account. Currently I have to do this via Auto Attendant/Resource Accounts and have AA set to forward call direct to the user in question.

    5. 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

    8. 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

    9. Add the Standard Edition Front End Role to Skype for Business 2019

      It was announced at Microsoft Ignite 2017 that there would be no Standard Edition Front End role in Skype for Business 2019. Enterprise Edition using a full SQL back end will be the only option going forward. While this is a clear pain point for many small and medium sized organizations, even very large organizations use Standard Edition server in branches and offices where survivable branch options do not provide enough functionality. I would like to see the Standard server live on to meet this smaller footprint need.

    10. 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…

    13. 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.

    15. 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.

    18. Disable automatic updates for Skype Room Systems

      Since you brick at least half of my endpoints every couple of months with an unstable version of SRS v2, and since the regular Windows updates - which, for the life of me, I can't imagine whey SRS is on the same update schedule as a regular Win 10 device... - automatically installed brick the other half, we need a way to completely remove our room systems from your update schedules (including Windows Store, which shouldn't even be on a device users can't log into) so we can ensure only stable updates are installed.

      We're sick of being your beta…

    19. Microsoft Teams

      Would be nice if you would not use Us are you Beta testesr. Please have the product working correctly before deploying it. Spent the last week talking to India to no avail. Cannot not add external users to MS Teams, could 2 weeks ago, cannot now. People where using now its broke and we are purchasing slack. My idea is how about hiring some competent developers and quit outsourcing.

    20. 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…
