    1. 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.

    8. Unity

      We're now working a lot with Unity engine to develop a great stuff, also on AR ( Hololens ) and VR.
      We really like to "embed" a Skype call inside multiple platform, using a native Unity SDK!

    9. SFB Mobile App, while phone is asleep, should wake up from incoming call and IM.

      SFB Mobile App, while phone is asleep, should wake up from incoming call and IM. Otherwise people would miss their important business call. Just like whatsapp and good old gsm phone behaviour. Many customers are very surprise when they found out this issue. Never did they expect the App didn't handle this properly. Very sad.

    11. Overwhelming SPAM Calls on Skype for Business

      We are receiving 4-5 unsolicited spam calls per day. They leave empty voicemails and occasionally there is a robot/recorded telemarketing prompt on the other end.

      This issue is happening to 10+ users in our organization.

    12. Add user's local time and time zone to user info window

      What would it take to show what time it is for the person you are chatting to. Example: someone in Austin, TX talking to someone in India. You could put their local clock/time zone up in the user info box that is at the top of the chat window.

      Thanks

    13. Make Skype for Business the same as Skype

      I don't understand why 2 clients have been made for this, especially when both names are so similar, makes things very complicated.

      I think all the features that separate Skype for Business and Skype should be on one program! OR all contacts should be allowed to speak with each other with no restrictions.

      Skype for Business should have 1 thing extra which would be to be a presenter (meaning you can share files and screen with all other users but regular skype users can't share theirs) and it should be the account type that you pay for.

      Currently there is…

    15. A workable way to hide certain contacts or groups from Skype for Business search

      We are thinking of using Skype for Business for our corporate use. However there are few Linux users too. Unfortunately they is no client available for Linux. We would like to know when it will be available?

    18. Disappearing text

      a feature that when someone messages you, the message of the text appears on ur screen overtop of the web page or document and disappears after a couple sec. saves me from opening up messages- the ability to have a seamless conversation with someone without opening up skype boxes or it covering up what I'm talking about on the screen

    20. Make Skype for Business more like Skype

      I've been trying to push Skype for Business in our company that currently uses Skype seeing as how we can no longer manage Skype through an admin portal online, but there's just too many differences that make Skype for Business unusable:

      1. Keep the same running chat history for each user instead of saving each individual conversation in Outlook history. Frankly, this is more confusing than it is helpful. If others find it a good idea, maybe there can be a choice on how chat history is dealt with.

      2. Make it so Skype conversations can add Skype for Business…
