    1. Disable the hyperlink of phone numbers on Contact card

      I would request a feature to disable the hyperlink of the phone numbers on Contact card in Outlook regardless of sign-in from Skype for Business.

      When I click phone numbers on Contact card by using Outlook, SfB launches.
      If I sign-in SfB, phone numbers on Contact card is shown as a hyperlink. If I do not sign-in SfB, the hyperlink is inactive, so I would request the hyperlink should be inactive for either way.

    4. Saving poll questions so that re-using them in different skype calls with polls would be very helpful!

      It would be a huge improvement for skype for business if the presenter would have the option to save the online poll questions prior to the skype meeting. This would allow to open the poll immediately and would avoid that the presenter needs to write down the questions and possible answers in every skype session again. Sometimes the presenter also schedules some more calls for the same (training) content and needs the same online poll questions in different calls. It would be easy to re-use these poll questions when having the option to save and re-open them.

    6. Comprehension Development Tips for Adult Literacy Tutors

      I read this I think I'm gonna look it up look up look them up on Wikipedia to see what else I can read so I can connect to maybe another historical document or maybe an even a primary source like some you know photographs or other historical websites about them so as I read with my student I could model the reading process by reading out loud which also models fluent reading but I can also stop and do things like self monitoring or to chunk the text and I would chunk the text about every paragraph or so…

    7. Replies should be readable on all devices.

      Greetings,

      Simply put a sent message can be seen on the receivers moblile device or the PC, this we know. However when that person replies, the reply is ONLY seen on the device that the original message was sent from. For example: I send a Skype Message from mycomputer and leave my desk to go to a meeting. The person replies that the meeting was cancelled, but the reply can only be seen on the PC not the mobile device. This is a problem as you can understand.

      - We have tested this with another phone. So the problem is…

    8. PABX

      You need to explain what facilities are available.
      for example can you replace a 3CX system with Call Queues and Ring Groups, System Management etc.

    9. Allow users to paste images directly into IM

      Allow users to paste images directly into IM

      Currently, when pasting images in IM
      - Scenario 1, to (1) person, image is pasted in IM directly
      - Scenario 2, to more than (1) person, image is added as an attachment

      Scenario 2
      After pasting image, users SHOULD see a red dot appear in upper right of the Share Content icon at the bottom of the screen

      They should left click the icon --> Select MANAGE CONTENT --> Click the EYEBALL icon to view the attached image

    10. You are ignoring SO many threads asking you to fix the escape-key-close-window problem.

      A cursory search on this site and others show that people have been complaining for a long time about the 'feature' you instituted which 'allows' you to close an IM window by simply hitting the ESC key. I and obviously many thousands of others HATE that feature, and people have been asking for a fix for at least a year. You are ignoring that. Why? It really makes you look bad when you create a feedback site, and then don't pay any attention to that feedback.

    11. Skype Groups or Relationships linked to Outlook e-mail organizing rules

      Many use outlook rules to organize e-mails based on what company or department the sender is from (example: an e mail from a Finance colleague would get routed from Inbox to a Finance folder). Taking the list of people listed on such kind of rules, and feeding it into Skype in the form of Groups or Relationships would greatly help find common contacts easily in Skype, rather than having to remember everyone´s name to look them up in Skype when you need to reach out.

    16. 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.

    17. Enable text messaging in Skype for Business to allow text message record retention.

      Government agencies are struggling to find a solution to capture and retain text messages that are sent/received while delivering services. In a BYOD environment, this is not possible (especially with iOS) without relying on screenshots or transcriptions. This is a legal requirement for government and enabling SMS in S4B would archive text messages in Exchange, allowing retention and discoverability in the event of litigation.

    19. Make Skype for Business accessible for deaf people

      According to Action on Hearing Loss, 70% of deaf people in the UK feel that their deafness prevents them succeeding in the workplace while it's been found that deaf people earn on average £2,000 a year less than hearing people. Skype for Business with Translate would enable us to enter the corporate world with more confidence, armed with the tools to help us interact with global teams and enter jobs otherwise out of our reach. It would be life changing for people like me, who have stayed in lower jobs for the 'safety' of it. I recently pushed myself out…

    20. 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?
