        • 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

              • 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…

                    • 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…

                      • 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…

                          • 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.

                                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.

                                      • Don't see notification number popping up on the skype icon for the muted people/group.

                                        I do not see notification number popping up on the skype icon for the muted people/group. This way messages go unnoticed for hours. In older skype, we used to get the notification number on the icon itself so that we know we have a message waiting to get responded to even for someone who is muted.

                                        • Skype getting blocked and suspended for no reason

                                          Hi there, it has happened to me 4 times this month, everytime I come back from the weekend or a holiday and I try to log into skype my skype is either blocked or suspended, there is a bug in the system that determines the reasons for suspension and blocking an account, I haven't done anything in the past few days and my account was suspended for no reason, this happens only in skype accounts recently opened and not in the old skype accounts of 4 years ago. please fix this very annoying bug

                                          • Display the current time in the Skype header

                                            Simple: please display the current time in the header of the Skype window. It would be particularly useful in Skype meetings.
