    1. using a service number outside Microsoft Tenant

      As of the moment, Skype for Business/Teams only support using a service number that is listed within your Office 365 tenant and there's no available option for us to verify an external phone number. What I can suggest is to provide the option where you can verify the number which his not ported to Microsoft. We have 3 different location and 2 Microsoft tenant and we want to use one outgoing number for both tenant.

    4. Voicemail - Dial out from Voicemail to Operator

      It would be nice to dial 0 at a users voicemail and be transferred to the operator. This way, if the caller does not want to leave a voicemail but speak to a live person, they can simple back out by pressing 0 instead of dialing back in. Most phone systems have a similar feature, would be great for Skype for Business to adopt this.

    7. E911 Emergency Location needs to support Geographic Coordinates

      Emergency Location needs to support geographic coordinates. The oil and gas industry builds its own roads to well locations and does not have addresses. These locations could have VOIP phones on site and a company's field office could be hours away. We really need to be able to use decimal degrees latitude/longitude as an emergency location, which is supported by E911 standards but not currently allowed in the Office 365 Skype for Business platform. This is a critical hole in the SfB platform with serious implications in a emergency situation.

    8. Voicemail in shared mailbox

    9. Auto-Attendant needs 'Dial By Extension' option for external callers

      Skype for Business Auto-Attendants in Office 365 need the option for external callers to dial an 'extension'.

      Either an AD attribute or a field in the online Skype 'voice users' section I can populate to add a 3-digit, 4-digit etc extension that will be recognized when dialed from an auto-attendant.

      We have clients with business cards that include extensions. This is a very basic option that businesses expect.

    10. Option to turn off call waiting

      Most people have become accustomed to having secondary calls ring when they are already on a call. What if I don't want those calls to ring through? There should be an option to turn this off and select what to do with the call.. play busy signal or send to voicemail.

    11. Upload audio file for ringback tone

      Auto Attendant and Users should have a way to upload an audio file for the caller to hear a specific ringback tone, while the call is waiting to be connected (Similar to how you can upload a "music on hold" audio file in a Call Queue).

    13. Send to Voicemail in Auto Attendant or Queues

      Add option in Auto Attendant or Queues to Redirect to Voicemail on User.

      This option would be under "What happens to the calls after the greeting?"
      Redirect Call
      ---Voicemail -> User

      Very often I will use Shared Voice Mailboxes or redirect my cell phone to my business voicemail. This feature would allow me to do this properly without burning extra licenses and setting up extra users.

    14. Custom Logic for Auto Attendant using external database

      It would be great to be able to add a Webhook and Or an Azure Function as a step in an auto attendant. This would allow retrieval of data from a customer database for example. Once the customer database lookup was finished the response could be used as conditions in the later parts of the auto attendant.

      This would really increase the power and flexibility of Microsoft Auto Attendant(s)

      Example Use Case: Customer calls into the auto attendant, the auto attendant will inform the customer that we are retrieving their account. A web hook or call to an azure function…

    17. A way to divert calls to selected numbers to a telecomes system outside of Skype for Business

      An option in S4B/Teams which allows you to divert all incoming calls to a Skype number to another number (mobile, alternative telecom system) BEFORE the call is routed into the Skype/Teams system, so that in the event of a Skype/Teams failure (like the two in the last month), companies and users can still remain contactable on their Skype numbers.

    18. skype for business mobile app incoming calls to show name of outlook contact

      When receiving a call through the skype for business client or skype for business Polycom, I see the name of the person if that number is saved as a contact in outlook. When receiving a call on either iOS or Android skype for business app, it only shows "Skype for Business" and then the phone number. I'd like to see the contact's name. If I don't, I am totally confused at who is calling me. Is there some way for the phone apps to pull that information?

    19. enable feature to call premier numbers

      In the article https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA322/what-is-a-shared-cost-number
      it shows that premier numbers are not included in any US calling plan. It would be nice if this capability were enabled.

      Here is another article that shows premium numbers are not currently supported:

    20. Recepient of a call destined for a call queue sees the URI instead of the call queue name.

      When a caller calls a call queue (one of Skype for Business, further SfB, features) the call is distributed to call queue members (also called agents in call centers). The call is announced to agents by ringing and by the call queue name displayed in agents' SfB window. Agents need to know the name of the call queue as the name identifies the type of the call and the topic the caller is calling about.
      Agents are often members of multiple call queues which even more emphasized the importance of the call type/queue identification.

      For example, a call queue named…
