    2. Allow pictures into body of message without having to download and open in a new window

      Using the snipping or screen shot tools, be able to put the picture into the body of the text so it can be discussed without having to open a new window and going back and forth to see the picture and talk about it.

    3. HelpDesk

      would be good if it could be used as a helpdesk for IT technicians in schools. Staff could submit a support request by selecting a group that contains the IT staff and select an option for "support" they would be assigned a ticket number. Then a technician could respond to the ticket. a ticket process Icon or colour could be assigned to the stage of completion. that's the basics..

    4. Import into Skype-Biz from normal Skype - what a freakin miss !

      Amazingly there is no way to Import normal Skype contacts into Skype for Biz.
      This has now been on the table for over 6 months and still no resolution.
      - great way to hack off your biz customers
      - MS you are a total bunch of arrogant lazy numpties

    5. Improve Contact Searches on Skype Directory

      Searching for Skype contacts on my Skype for Business and iPad Skype are pretty much useless, even when I have someone's Skype ID. I am not sure what the challenge is on this.

      Perhaps additional Search Criteria would help find/filter search requests to improve this functionality.

    7. Allow an option to prevent Skype from automatically opening all the time.

      Skype automatically opens and prompts me for a password all the time -- this is annoying -- there is not easy way to just close the program. I would like to prevent Skype from opening all the time. I only want it to open when I want it to open! My company doesn't allow us administrative rights so I can't change this without a help ticket.

    9. Phrases shortcut

      Please. One option in the chat for Shortcuts. Like on ´´Sametime Chat´´

      For example:
      You write down on chat ''1+'' (or something like that) and directly appear one custom (or preset) phrase.

      Example:

      ''1+'' = '' Hello, Good morning. My name is *****, How are you today? ''

      Please, this tool is very neccesary for our job, and to other people also.

      Thanks a lot, and vote this idea please!!

    10. Directory Tree

      As a business customer I should be able to buy a Skype number that acts as a "main number" for the company. When someone calls the number they would get a company greeting and then the directory tree, press 1 for Sales, 2 for Accounting or press 9 for the company directory.

      If you are going to try and brand this as a business service this is a must feature.

    11. This is good, but I should be able to vote an idea as a bad one.

      Some of the ideas are not good for business and the fact that they have a lot of votes don't make them useful. It's just because they already appear in the top and a lot of "not-busy" employees like them, but the busy ones don't. There should be an option to indicate that we wouldn't like to see that idea implemented.

    20. support streched pools again

      stretched pools support has been removed with Lync 2013. This is a major limitation for lot of customers running two data centers for desaster recovery. A single pool should be supported to split over two or more data centers.
