      • 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.

            • Know the names of people who have tagged you and control them (Delete or Block)

              I would want to prevent someone tagging my to know my availability status - sometimes immediately after I am available people send Hi messages and ask many questions , then I should be able to control tagging me some days and know who all have tagged me and should be able to remove or block them not tagging me anymore.

              • Make Skype for Business fully compatible with standard Skype.

                Working internationally with many organisations don't have Skype for Business so unless it is made fully compatible with standard Skype I can't efficiently use it.

                • 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.

                  • Offer MSRA as a resource in the File dropdown above the help item.

                    The Microsoft Support Recovery Assistant for Office 365 is a wonderful tool. Please make it readily accessible by offering it in drop-downs such as the File menu in Skype for Business. A good place to put it would be via a link in the sign-in text, and the File Menu above the Help item. The link or dropdown menu item should give a brief description of the troubleshooter and offer to download, install, and launch the latest version. Many vexing problems could be solved this way and much time could be saved by users and admins.

                    • Skypebroadcast should show user count in broadcast

                      When you are hosting a broadcast there is no EASY at a glance to see how many users are joined into the call... I am not asking for names, just a number... Like People Watching Broadcast: 1,000

                          Gifs are an integral part of communication in this day and age, even in business.

                              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!

                                        • 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.

                                          • 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.
