    1. manage delegation for end users


      1. When setup users for delegation use the SEFUTIL, there is no options to setup forwarding or simring to a particulate delegate instead the command line only allow to send to all delegates. Would like to set delegation to one particular person only


      2. If the end user use the GUI to set the forward to 1 user, use the command line will not see all the delegates.


      3. We need a tool to manage delegation for Administrator as the end user can get very confuse.

    3. Give us same emoctions as "regular" Skype!

      Why does the "regular" skype version get all the emoticons but business version get boring, old ones? People spend most of their waking hours at work - let's make it a little bit more tolerable!

    5. 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.

    6. Hide status for the external users on Skype for Business

      Our customers are requiring “hide status for the external users on Skype for Business” that external parties cann't see skype presence. Still external communicatin can be done.

      Can you please take the requirement as “Customer Feedback” and let me know is there any ETA for adding the feature in future Development/Roadmap.

    8. Make it easy to set appropriate alt text for the logo in Skype for Business meeting invitations

      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/skypeforbusiness/set-up-skype-for-business-online/customize-meeting-invitations
      Make it easier for people to add appropriate alt text (perhaps the company name or blank alt text) to their logo in their Skype for Business meeting invitations. (Currently, people tend to set the alt text to the same URL as the source of the logo.) A tiny white code follows the logo. Please make things accessible by default.

    10. 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I'm gonna look it up look up look them up on Wikipedia to see what else I can read so I can connect to maybe another historical document or maybe an even a primary source like some you know photographs or other historical websites about them so as I read with my student I could model the reading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…

    11. Set preferred toll-free number when getting it

      I would like to set preferred toll-free number when getting it because some country has a restriction on phone number for call back from mobile phone. If this is difficult, it would be great that I can set area code at least.

    12. 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.

    13. 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.

    14. 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 not…

    15. 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.

    16. 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

    17. 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.

    20. 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.
