      in our Tenant "Xelleration.com" we have one user has E5 and Audio conferencing licenses assigned ans we still not able to see the dial in number avilable when we schedule a meeting in Teams. this is very Important for us to get a full transition from Skype to Teams, and encourage our end user and customers to use Team from now on.

    3. Selected online, only be online for a selected group, like only superiors or friends

      Selected online, only be online for a selected group, like only superiors or friends.
      When you're at a client you might only want to be online for your superiors or people you want to casually talk to instead of everyone else who will ask for stuff that you dont have time for when at a client

    8. the ability to erase emoji as a reaction on a message

      I wish I had the option to delete emoji as a reaction on a message. You can edit the message but you can't edit the reaction to the message.
      if I made a mistake or regrat the emoji I added I can't change it. it's annoying sometimes.

    11. Skype for Business have issue to send contact request to Skype user

      Recently we migrate 100 users from Skype to Skype for Business.

      We found a critical issue that Skype for Business user have issue to send contact request to Skype user.

      Skype 8 client user will never receive the notification from Skype for Business. Skype user can only check the contact request by Skype (web) login.

      Skype for Business do not allow to send message to Skype user unless they accepted the contact request.

      It becomes worse when the contact request never appear to Skype 8 user client.

      The migrated user (from Skype to Skype for Business) is not able to…

    14. Change the emoji's up. There are only 2 emoji's related to female's and only white hand signals. skype is coming off racist/sexist.

      Change the color of the thumb's up/down, shaking, and flexing emoji's to yellow if you don't want to add another skin color other than white. Add more female related emoji's. It's very uncomfortable to think that Skype is making a statement that they do not want to add additional skin types to their list of emojis and don't want woman to be a part of those options either. I'm a white male, and I do feel very uncomfortable having to use your services as it's required for my job. This has also been brought to Skype's attention for years and…

    16. Group to Group/Single Person Chat

      Make it possible for a Skype Group to act as a sender of message.
      This way, a privileged user of a group (say group XYZ) will have an option to post a message, to another group or another person, using his User Identity and as well as group XYZ.

      There are certain scenarios, where let's say a decision needs to be come forward from whole team, to the client. So, instead of team member Alice saying 'Whole team agreed to decision XYZ' to the Client Bob, a Skype Group named 'ABC Company' can be utilized to send message.

      It is…

    18. Enable IM sound alerts for favorites but mute every one else

      I'd like to be able to mute IM alerts, but still get alert sounds for contacts in my Favorites group.
      Or maybe even be able to set custom sounds per contact list group

    19. Allow Windows 10 focus assist to disable taskbar amber alert

      As this is one of the great principles of focus assist. Getting distracted by constant amber alerts kind of defeats the point.

    20. Conversation History just like the Free Skype (Where you can search all conversation on a users window)

      We are having trouble on tracing for the history via Outlook its a hustle. Can we suggest that we can do the same as the free Skype version where you can search on a users window ALL conversation history.
