    1. A buildin function to send a "federation request", so that the other company gets notifications about a failed "contactrequest"

      A buildin function to send a "federation request", so that the other company gets notifications about a failed "contactrequest"
      Now when I add someone that I know has Lync/Skype, but no possibility to add people outside the organisation, this person gets no notification about me trying to contact them.
      Sending requests would motivate that Company to open up to other companies.

    2. Need Ability to Hide Resouces in Skype Directory

      Exchange has the ability to create resources mailboxes that allow for reservations of resources. They're not communicated directly with other than to send invites. Given that logic there is a rational not to display resource rooms in Skype for business. They're not actual users. I would like the ability to hide resources from the Skype Directory.

    3. Copy to Oracle

      Add the ability to copy paste a received query. Currently, you have to delete the extra space between each word for it to work. I talk to developers all the time thru this app.

    5. Change the colors in conversations. The two current blue colors are too similar and sometimes hard to distinguish between.

      Change the colors in conversations to blue and red. They cant be two different tones of blue which can very confusing.

    7. Photo Icon

      It would be good if you could make the photo icon to show whether the contact person is Male or female when the photo is not updated.

    8. Skype transition should have been seamless.

      I previously used skype to speak with employees, family, and CLIENTS. I was upgraded automatically to Skype Business and found that I couldn't talk with anyone outside of my organization. I contact support and found out I needed to update some DNS records. It still didn't work. I now find out that I need to have EVERYONE OF MY CLIENTS do the same. This is unacceptable. For the development engineers that work in vacuum- if my client has to work to communicate with me, they won't bother. Clients are lazy and don't want to work. They want to be able…

    13. Keep the Chat Histiry

      It would be nice if the chat history wouldn't always be cleared every time you close a a chat session. Even if would just retain the chats for 1 day, this way it is easier to keep a conversation going or to quickly refer back to something that was said.
