    1. Skype Messages not responding to Rules

      I have been informed that the Skype missed conversations are send via Exchange Webservices Protocol and due to that do not have an SMTP header. This causes for the rules in outlook not to function on them. It would be good if the rules could work so we can automatically move these messages upon arrival.

          • The ability to amend which monitor notifications appear on

            Currently you can choose where on the screen notifications appear (defauly being lower right hand corner) but you cannot choose which monitor they appear on.

            • Chat/Conversation History

              Storing Chat/Conversation History in Outlook is all well and good EXCEPT it only keeps part of the conversation. This is really unacceptable especially when it is the only record of conversations that I need to refer to later.

              Skype for Business is not Snap Chat. Please stop trying to be cute or trendy. If you want something like Snap Chat, create Skype Chat. Skype for Business should be productive for business use.

              • allow sub directories and sorting the directories,

                I spend too much time at work searching for someone.
                and seems that every time i get an upgrade the directories all go out of my preferred alpha order and i have to manually order them again.

                • Sauvegarde des historiques de conversations.

                  Il est très irritant de ne pas pouvoir garder un historique des conversations dans Skype Entreprise !
                  J'utilise un nom de domaine entreprise pour rediriger mes courriels vers gmail et donc je n'utilise pas outlook.
                  Je paie tous les mois Skype entreprise pour partager du contenu avec mes clients, faire mes formations à distance car je ne pouvais pas le faire avec mon skype perso.
                  Maintenant, on me dit que pour garder mes historiques il faut obligatoirement utiliser outlook ?
                  Je ne trouve pas ça normal du tout de pousser sans arrêt à la consommation sur l'utilisation des services Microsoft.

                      • Create fixed chat groups like Whatsapp

                        We should be able to create a fixed group chat, with history and with the possibility to any member open and send messages even when other members are not online, like whatsapp. It would be an easiest way to communicate with workteams in corporation!

                        • Get a session information of deleted users’ sessions using Get-CsUserSession command.

                          If Litigation Hold or In-Place Hold is enabled, we cannot get detailed information of deleted users’ sessions.
                          That’ll be useful if we can get a session information of deleted users’ sessions using Get-CsUserSession command.

                          • 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.

                            • 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?

                              • Contact Folder option to show all employees within the company/domain

                                Show all employees in my company/domain and have this list synchronize with the Global Address List.

                                It is absolutely ludicrous that I cannot see all company/domain employees in a Group. At the VERY least, allow the addition of Office Distribution Lists or Office365 Groups to be added as a Contact folder.

                                Skype For Business would replace all internal communications and meetings if they implemented this one request. Corporations will never adopt a communication platform that requires manual entries to each address book.

                                    • Include a way to add non-skype for business users as a contact and be able to IM or call on the go.

                                      IM does not work from Skype for business to regular Skype users but allows regular Skype users to IM a Skype for business user. This needs to be fixed! Collaboration is a two-way process!!

                                      • SKYPE and SKYPE FOR BUSINESS should update each other

                                        I have SKYPE and SKYPER for business (via OFFICE 365) but I do not use the business version since all my contacts are in SKYPE (not business)

                                        If would be useful when a NEW CONTACT REQUEST comes in, the contact to be added in both skype versions. Also, can I import contacts from SKYPE to Skype business.

                                        The best outcome could be that both versions syncronize each other.

                                          • Support for Termed Employees

                                            It would be really nice to be able to be able to manage a number that are longer active. That is, once an employee leaves, we would like to disable the account but still be able to have a recording that says something like "This employee is no longer with our company. For assistance, please call ___________" or be able to route the call directly to operator or a manager to handle those incidents.
