    1. Admin functionality to check the privacy relationships for each user

      Users put so much effort to check the privacy relationships for their own, so it would be great if admins can check it via admin center or PowerShell.

    2. Official implementation for the Session Detail

      The Session Detail in Skype for Business admin center is currently in preview, and problems could not be restored when they would happen. So, I would like you to implement the Session Detail formally ASAP.

    3. could not create a new conferencing policy with parameter AllowAnonymousUsersToDialOut on SFB online.

      We could not create a new conferencing policy with parameter AllowAnonymousUsersToDialOut on SFB online. We get the error below:

    5. Applying conferencing policies depends on external domain communicate to in Skype for Business

      It would be great that SfB different conferencing policies could be automatically applied separately depending on which external organization domain that you communicate to. For example, apply conferencing policy A for external tenant domain A, and conferencing policy B for an external tenant domain B, when communicating externally in Skype for Business.

    7. Enable to search Skype call logs for the last 30 or more days

      Skype call logs which show the call duration with who and when can be obtained via Skype admin center or Windows PowerShell, but those can be obtained for only the last 30 days. I would request that the reporting feature to show the call logs for the last 30 or more days.

    13. Allow US format for dates in Skype for Business holiday config

      Holiday date format should match the format for the country of the user. Due to the current configuration of dd/mm/yyyy, multiple holidays are entered incorrectly. The United States standardized on mm/dd/yyyy and that is what we expect to use when configuring dates in Office 365 and all other systems. This is the only system that forces us to use the incorrect format for the US. Forcing us to a different standard leaves too much room for mistakes.

    15. The method to sync contact cards instead of signing in

      When updating the data of contacts、you need to sign in to Skype for Business client.
      It will be difficult to sign in to Skype for Business client if you won’t use it. So, I would like you to implement a feature that forces sync by other methods such as PowerShell.

    16. Need ability to create custom Contact Cards templates

      In our company, we wanted to have the ability to add the Office Location to the contact card pop that you get when you hover over a user. Currently it only shows the Department and Job Title. You have to click the down arrow to see the full contact card to see the Office Location.

      I've seen others on here who want to show the EmployeeID, Phone Number, and other custom fields.

      It would be nice if admins could create a template with the desired fields to show up on both the full contact card and the hover over card…

    17. Allow custom maximum number of computers or devices allowed

      We just migrated from a hosted Skype on-premises instance to Skype Online and learned there is a hard 8 computers or devices limit. Some of our users keep hitting this limit because they work in Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations and often have multiple tabs or browsers open. When they open their 8th D365FO session, they're kicked out of their SfB fat client. This is making communication and work difficult. There is an option available on-prem to increase this limit, but it's not available online.

    18. Role based access control

      I've just found out there is no way to give limited permissions to the Admin Portal to Junior Admins so they do specific tasks like changing phone number assignments.

      I feel like this is a basic feature that both Skype and Teams should have so that we follow our least privilege approach using RBAC.

      Thanks

    19. Extract a specific skype for business meeting participant list from O365/SFB online console

      I see that we do not have a place to export/extract a report of list of participants for a specific skype for business meeting. This is an important feature and seems to be missing. Can we add it please?

    20. BUG with Credentials Handling

      the below code shows - if we use a credential object to connect to SfB it basically works BUT - after the Credentials object is consumed, the password is cleared and the credential object useless. plz fix - the issue is known from the ADAL library Bug described here - https://github.com/Azure/azure-docs-powershell-azuread/issues/169

      Import-Module SkypeOnlineConnector
      $creds = Get-Credential

      Write-Host "Creds password length before connect: $($creds.Password.Length)"

      $SfBOsession = New-CsOnlineSession -Credential $creds
      Import-PSSession $SfBOsession -AllowClobber | Out-Null

      Write-Host "Creds password length after connect: $($creds.Password.Length)"
