      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.

    4. 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.

    5. 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…

    7. 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?

    8. Require User's Permission to be Tagged for Status

      There is currently no way for users to prevent themselves from being tagged for status change alerts. This is a privacy intrusion and can cause a burst of unwanted communications all at once. It could also be used for malicious purposes such as stalking. Please develop an option for users to prevent themselves from being tagged for status changes.

    9. 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.

    10. Skype For Business Auto-connect

      In our organization we have multiple meeting rooms and multiple different geographic locations. It would be nice to schedule a meeting between 2 conference rooms (maybe room account, equipment account, or user account) and at the time of the meeting, if S4B is running, the meeting is joined by both rooms with no interaction from a person. We have a lot of distance meetings and takes a lot of time to help connect for users who can't do it for themselves and have staff at both locations to join the meeting room isn't always available. With this we could have…

    12. Add “Be back around XX:XX”.

      Add “Be back around XX:XX”. It would be nice to have an option for “Be back around XX:XX” under my status where you could specify the time you will be back. If I look someone up and their status is be right back, I have no idea how long they have been away and when “right back” will actually be. People have a tendency to change their status back to Available when they return so one never knows. The function to state a time and have it go back to available automatically would be very useful, IMHO.

    13. Save and send an IM when someone is offline

      Save and send an IM when someone is offline. Sometimes you don’t want to send an email or you want to say something like “give me a call when you get in”. Having to ability to send an IM to someone offline that would “Auto send” once they come online would be useful. Especially when working with people around the world.

    14. PowerShell commands to configure Skype meeting delegate

      As an admin I would like to delegate Skype for Business on behalf of someone else (delegate user A to User B) via PowerShell, instead of doing it manually by using the Outlook client.

      Please refer to the link below:

    16. Send to Email

      I would like a "send to email" button so that when a colleague sends me an IM that really should have been a email, that I want to look at later, I can click send to email, and it sends the IM to my email.

    19. please wait while i transfer your call

      We would like the option to disable the "please wait while I transfer your call" when using the Auto Attendant.

      We have had our AA Prompts professionally recorded, and it's not professional to have the "robot" voice say "Please wait while I transfer your call" or "transferring your call to (text option)"

      We would like a check box to disable this, or an option to record this too.
