    1. Change my status within a conversation window

      Would nice to be able to change my status within a conversation window, rather than digging up the main SfB window or going to the taskbar to change it. I can see the status of my conversation partner, but not my own to change it.

    2. Ability to preview the caller ID for Call Pickup Group members

      This is a very common feature of traditional PBX: the ability for a Call Pickup Group member to see who is calling and than choose to pickup the call or not.

      At this moment if a user is member of a Call Pickup Group there is no way to preview the caller ID.

      Every of our customers ask for this feature.

    3. Using multiple screens it would be able to choose which screen the notification pops up on rather than it simply showing on the main monitor

      in a multiple screen environment be able to choose which screen the popup of a new chat shows on rather than only having it show on the main screen. when involved in a screenshare session the notification window pops up. Sure you can change your status to 'do not disturb' to stop those from coming up but it would be better to be able to choose the screen notifications show on.

    4. Automatically handle a call when two people call each other at the same time

      How often do you start with IM and say 'Call?' and then you both call each other and end up getting annoying busy/voice mail... given two SIP calls... why not let S4B server figure that out and choose the optimal route allowing one through and dropping the other so the call is successful first time.. perhaps least cost based or some other rule.. would save minutes each day in lost time

    7. Screen Sharing: Huge, (with a 24pt font capital "H") functionality gap

      Just looking at the drop down list of possible categories helps explain why the functionality is so lacking in what is possibly the most important part of any collaboration software package - the value you add by allowing people to see (not hear - we still all have phones) what anyone on the call is doing.

      If you look at any product on the market - Webex, Joinme, GoTo Meeting - they all without exception have a common denominator of allowing the participants on a call to experience the full screen of the presenter (if that is what they want…

    10. Better viewing Area for Web App

      the presentation viewing area for the webapp is too small with 1 inch on top and 2 inches on bottom and 2 inches on either side of #deadspace while in full screen mode. the best browser interface so far is #firefox as IE and Chrome have issues. please contact me for further details.

    11. You should have sound effects

      When in a group video chat and there is a heated discussion, or a member of the group is not paying attention, we should have a feature/tool that makes a sound effect. Like a whistle, fight ring bell, clapping, laughter, emergency siren, crickets..etc.

    14. Full screen mode by double clicks

    15. S4B should support authenticated proxies.

      S4B should support authenticated proxies. It's very strange that the standard Skype client supports authenticated proxies while Skype4Business doesn't.

    17. widescreen support on windows 8.x

      if you have a single Screen but a very wide one you want to attach Skype to on side on top of other applications OR better in a way that other Windows would lean on (don´t know if this is supported by OS)

      Either way - at the Moment Skype would Stretch over half the Screen when you attach it to one side - which makes no sense at all. Especially as the Chat window is split from contacts.... which is a pitty

    18. invite by email

      Move "Invite by email" in "Participant Actions" to "Invite More People". The current arrangement isn't very intuitive to me.

    20. Skype and Skype for Business both open when my PC boots. Not easy to stop Skype and leave Skype for business

      Make it easy to EXIT Skype and not have it start when the PC starts or remain running in the background. I don't need it as I already have Skype for Business.
