    1. Pull user name from primary SMTP name only

      Currently, Skype matches names from Outlook personal address book and all email addresses contained in the users AD profile. At least this is how it was explained to me by support. The problem with this design is that some users maintain aliases (proxy addresses) that are not their names for various business reasons. This results in the S4B's user name to not be displayed correctly if an S4B user has an old contact for that alias in their personal address book. I request the option for Skype to only read the users primary SMTP address and disregard the proxy addresses.

    4. please stop with the 3 logins because i do not want to save my password!

      after logging into Skype for Business i have to sign in three times in a row in order to get the credentials box to quit firing. Let me know how to stop this nuisance or just allow users to NOT save their passwords without harrassment...

    6. for the Skype for Business program to be compatible with the Ofice 2013 program. so that documents can still be opened with the Office 2013

      Make the Skype for Business 2016 program compatible with the Office 2013 program. I've been using the 2013 program for a year quite easily and the Skype for Business for approx. 9 months quite easily. Only when the 2016 program started did I start having problems.

    8. Log Status Updates

      By creating a log of status updates, users would be able to go back and see their history. This would be instrumental when checking for hackers that are posting status updates. An IP log associated with this would also be very helpful.

      Skype WiFi while in Europe was running in the background and ripped me off $79 They will NOT refund me any of it Very Dishonest.
      it should have costed me at most a couple of dollar instead $79 and there is nothing I can do. OK I will always do what I can to take business away and tell people about Skype Wifi rip off

    14. There has to be a switch that enables public to view the Profile pictures. -EnableProfilePictureView = Public|Private|

      On facebook, twitter, public skype and every other website, the user profile picture is viewable, and accesible. It should also be possible in Skype for Business "on-promises" and also SKB 365 to enable public view of the profile picture.

      Mabye a switch called :

      -EnableProfilePictureView = Public|Private|

    15. Make it easier to "Allow" sites like those required to perform the Administration of Skype of Business in the EDGE browser without IE

      Make it easier to "Allow" sites like those required to perform Administration of Skype of Business in the EDGE browser without having to go into IE --> Internet Options --> Security --> Trusted sites to add the sites that we apparently need. We were not able to consistently get into the Admin for Skype for Business without adding the list that your technicians gave us. It seems like this ability is missing in the current version of the EDGE Browser.

    17. Indicator to tell when the conversation history is being recorded.

      I have heard the argument that conversation history is not kept because it is similar to recording a phone call without the other party knowing it is being recorded... A recorded conversation can not be used in court UNLESS both parties acknowledge that the conversation is being recorded. To cover both bases, could history be enabled once both parties agree to accept that the conversation is being recorded? When a conversation is started or resumed, it might be possible to allow either party to reject the recording of the conversation.

    18. Restrict messaging to only intra domain.

      Restrict messaging to only intra domain. Getting direct IMs from members outside our organization is not professional; that is what email is

    19. Is it possible to block converstiaon history for a particular group or contact?

      We can stop the conversation history being backed up in outlook in general. How could it be possible to disable conversation history on particular contact or group?

    20. How can I delete meeting URL?

      I would like you to implement a feature to block users accessing the closed meeting.
      Because if users can access the closed meeting later then it will take more time to delete the meeting. I need a feature to delete the URL within a certain period of time to block users accessing the closed meeting.
