      • Quickly export a list of file sharing infomation

        I have to monitor file sharing activity while skype meeting because of security reason. I can use retention policy (or retigation hold) and searching & exporting content for monitoring file sharing in skype meeting now, but it is not suitable to monitor all file sharing activity.

        I want a feature to get list of following information about file sharing activity quickly.
        - file name
        - file size
        - when the file is uploaded
        - who upload the file
        - who download the file
        - where the file is uploaded from (IP address of device)

          • Document Intelligent Instant Message Filter (IIMF)

            Skype for business Online have (apparently) file filtering capabilities in Intelligent Instant Message Filter (IIMF). This is a largely undocumented feature for SFBO. Please document it.

            • Blease provide an app that runs inside firefox on LINUX but without WINE

              For security reasons I run LINUX only. No Windows, no WINE (because WINE is as vulnerable as Windows), no MacOS.
              Having an app running inside firefox that is running on LINUX is helping.
              Access to port 6000 (X-server) can be granted. So sharing a desktop is a peace of cake. (Inside the network it's common practice to run ssh and xhost +IP-address.)
              Teamviewer is doing a good job but some customers insist on Skype (The security issue of Teamviewer can easily be solved stopping the deamon while I'm not sharing. So this isn't an excuse to claim it isn't possible.…

                • Audit logs for Skype for Business Online

                  The current O365 Audit logs do not include any Skype for Business data … ?
                  What are our plans to also include SfB logs ? And what details ?

                  Background:
                  My customer received an email notifications that his PSTN number (Phone System with Calling Plan) has changed, but he is the Admin and has not made this change.
                  He wants to check who and when this change has been made ? Was it another Admin or Microsoft ... ?

                  Audit log : https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Search-the-audit-log-in-the-Office-365-Security-Compliance-Center-0d4d0f35-390b-4518-800e-0c7ec95e946c?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

                    • Block P2P File Transfer with specific external organizations

                      https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Skype-for-Business-Blog/Update-on-Custom-Policies-in-Skype-for-Business-Online/ba-p/69850

                      The new custom policies allows the capability to block external P2P File Transfer while still allowing internal. However this capability will affect all federated organizations and no way to specifically contain it to just one or more.

                      Would love to see the ability to block P2P File Transfer to just specific federated organizations rather than it affecting all.

                      • Allow SfB online (office 365) users to add Jabber/XMPP users to their contact list like On premises users can

                        On premises Skype for Business/Lync Server users can add Jabber/XMPP users to their contact list for federation. Skype for Business Online (office 365) users are restricted to federation with other SfB and regular Skype users only. I would like SfB online users to be able to federate with more than just other SfB and regular Skype users

                        • Sign Out of All Sessions

                          It would be useful to have an option to sign out of all existing sessions from the desktop application (settings), or mobile settings. This is useful if you are away from your desktop or mobile device, and lowers your risk of missed conversations.

                                • status logs

                                  Enable Admins to export status history logs for all users. This can be used for tracking purposes as to what the status of the user/s was for the day. It would be better if the IP Address will also be included in the logs so that it can be determined where the user logged in to his account.

                                    My boss doesn't always update her status in Skype Business. It would be nice to have the option to have editing access to update her 'what's happening today?' status. Then her team would be aware if she's in the office or out of town.

                                    • Enable Skype retention for security groups instead of individual

                                      Currently, you are only able to add individual accounts to a retention policy for Skype. It would be beneficial to enable groups like Exchange is able to.

                                      • Show attached file on receiver side

                                        Skype should show sent file's name and extension on receiver side. Currently I can't see what file I accept and it is possible to sent harmful scripts

                                          • Option to hide online status from normal skype users

                                            Provide an option to disable the online status for normal Skype users. Otherwise if you enable that users can add people outside of the company network, everyone will be able to see the online status of all employees.
                                            This is a privacy issue!
