    2. PSTN Calling Plan for UK

      PSTN calling plan for UK is outrageous.

      At the moment to take advantage of this service you need to be on Enterprise E3 which alone it self is a huge cost £17.60 p/m (annually) license and then you need an additional Add-on of Domestic: £15.10; International: £24.10 respectively. So, to use this service p/u p/m you are looking £32.7 p/m p/u (annually) thats excluding vat.

      The service is however a little better in US it supports E1, E3 AND 35.
      So, why a different setup in UK?

      Skype for Business Pricing Strategy is ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS AND VERY MUCH CONFUSING. (It…

    3. Chat session, have the ability to turn off flashing icon when chat is updated from participant.

      Essentially, chats in the background, the icon flashes, beeps when your not actively in the chat instance. I would like the ability to disable the Flashing icon on the Task bar, or least disable the beeping noise per chat instance when the a chat is updated by one of the participates.

      like exchange online, I would like the feature add the external contact in Skype organization level and that should be visible to every one in the organization instead of searching with full mail address we can search contact name that will be easy option to all users. When I checked with MS they said this option is not available. why don't you add this feature in upcoming release?

    5. When are you going to fix this utter shite?

      Seriously, as an IT manager I'm now in an impossible position with this utter piece of shite Microsoft has left us with.

      Skype is not fit for purpose anymore since you want everyone to use a Domestic Microsoft Account with it and Skype for Business is completely and utterly unusable, especially with executives who want it to work exactly like the original Skype they know. Why doesn't it?! Why does it send emails with no option of turning it off? Why is conversation history not continuous? Everything is ALL OVER THE PLACE. Why do messages send to one device but…

    6. We've just moved to Skype for Business, and it's not good.

      We needed to move to Skype for Business for a number of reasons, GDPR and user management being two of those.

      Unlike regular Skype, chats are a complete and utter disaster, bits and pieces of conversations end up everywhere, full conversations might happen on one device and only some or none of it appears on the user's other devices. Users want to see their actual chats let alone having the option of one endless chat (which is a highly requested feature). People are missing messages from each other which is outrageous and unacceptable.

      You cannot search in chats in SfB…

    7. The Anger Emoticon is a blackface trope and should be updated

      The anger emoticon in Skype for business is a callback to blackface humour. Which when put in context is indubitably racist.

      There is very little difference between this video:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRuZkCfQUgw

      and the ‘anger’ emoticon in Skype 4 Business.

      I believe that what the skype emoticon was / should be going for is ‘ashface’ as described here:

      http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AshFace

      Some perspective on blackface:
      http://metro.co.uk/2017/05/31/no-blackface-isnt-a-tribute-or-a-compliment-its-always-offensive-6675054/

      Need more perspective?
      https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/jan/08/boglarka-balogh-blackface-offensive

      I would really like to be contacted about this issue, with anyone who has the ability to affect change.

      I would suggest perhaps a mushroom cloud or steam coming out of the ears.

      Thanks…

    8. Ability to react to an emoticon

      I tried to react to my buddies emoticon where it gives you the finger, but was unable to. It would be useful to be able to give this a thumbs up or something.

    10. Chat list order by name

      In the older Skype it was possible to order the list by name.
      In my work I use 10+ group chats, and 50+ private chats and it is really difficult to find the correct one because the order is always changing according to the time/unread state... That is bad. And a search is extremely laggy and slow and buggy.

      Please add back the order by name option.

    11. Add Play Menu options at Holidays

      It would be very handy to Add Play Menu options at Holidays so that after the holiday voicemail is played a menu option to redirect the call to the service shift for example is given. (Same as the after working hours options)

    12. Provide the option to separate DND function for audio and IM. (Allow DND to be applied for audio calls but not IM chat and vice versa)

      As Enterprise voice gets more adopted ,PCs are more apt to ring. We have a lot of requests to be able control when the PC rings. Ideally, users could decide to temporarily block phone calls but still receive IMs. The use case is when someone brings their PC to a meeting.

    13. Middle Finger Emoji needs added for "reacting" to comments

      When having a conversation with my Baby Christyn, she will often say things that are sly and try to toss shade on a brotha. My instant reaction is to give her the middle finger even though Im laughing! So Skype needs to add the middle finger emoji to the reaction options!

      It would be great to block file transfer with external federated domains individually.

    17. Detect if person A is calling person B, while B is trying to call A: both lines busy

      If two people are calling each other at exactly the same moment (this happens more regularly then one thinks), both receive a "line busy" signal. Skype should detect that it is the very same person calling that one tries to call oneself and establish a connection.
