          • Consider reducing the loops of animated emojis.

            Currently emojis loop indefinitely, which can be annoying/overkill. Remember we learned that when animated GIFs were brand new. Thanks.

              • Incorporate Apple's 'Handoff' API to allow Skype conversations to move from MacBook to iPhone

                Apple allows third-party apps to take advantage of their Handoff API. Some examples of apps that have added this feature are Air BnB and the New York Times. Is it possible for Microsoft to incorporate this API and allow a Skype conversation begun on a MacBook to transfer to an iPad?

                • Skype For Business Auto-connect

                  In our organization we have multiple meeting rooms and multiple different geographic locations. It would be nice to schedule a meeting between 2 conference rooms (maybe room account, equipment account, or user account) and at the time of the meeting, if S4B is running, the meeting is joined by both rooms with no interaction from a person. We have a lot of distance meetings and takes a lot of time to help connect for users who can't do it for themselves and have staff at both locations to join the meeting room isn't always available. With this we could have…

                  • Require User's Permission to be Tagged for Status

                    There is currently no way for users to prevent themselves from being tagged for status change alerts. This is a privacy intrusion and can cause a burst of unwanted communications all at once. It could also be used for malicious purposes such as stalking. Please develop an option for users to prevent themselves from being tagged for status changes.

                      • Save and send an IM when someone is offline

                        Save and send an IM when someone is offline. Sometimes you don’t want to send an email or you want to say something like “give me a call when you get in”. Having to ability to send an IM to someone offline that would “Auto send” once they come online would be useful. Especially when working with people around the world.

                        • PowerShell commands to configure Skype meeting delegate

                          As an admin I would like to delegate Skype for Business on behalf of someone else (delegate user A to User B) via PowerShell, instead of doing it manually by using the Outlook client.

                          Please refer to the link below:

                          • please wait while i transfer your call

                            We would like the option to disable the "please wait while I transfer your call" when using the Auto Attendant.

                            We have had our AA Prompts professionally recorded, and it's not professional to have the "robot" voice say "Please wait while I transfer your call" or "transferring your call to (text option)"

                            We would like a check box to disable this, or an option to record this too.

                              • Add screen capturing feature

                                Copy/paste feature is a rather lengthy process. Adding a simple screen capture feature to the tools (such as attaching files, emoticons, etc) would be very helpful when needing quick discussions and actions.

                                      SIP addresses of all consumer skype contacts without MS account association turned into CID-(-xxxxxx...)@outlook.com.
                                      This is an absolutelt unusable format. Please return the format to traditional skypeid which can be something like skypeid@skypeids.net

                                      • Forward number in admin console

                                        When a user leaves the company it would be nice if you are able to set a users number to forward to someone else without having to change their password, then login as them, set the call forwarding and still take a license even though they are no longer with the company
