    1. invite by email

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

    3. 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.

    5. Ability to configure conference IDs

      Customer expect their conference IDs to be short and easily memorable for users dialing in to conferences. The potential solution should allow for conference IDs to remain short, decrease the administrator manual interaction, and improve the end user experience to correct existing meetings with long conference IDs.

    6. Conference EntryExit Announcement Type - Use AD PhoneticDisplayname or Exchange UM recorded name

      The current settings allow for a tone or displayname to be used in the CsDialInConferencingConfiguration. To be honest our company displaynames are horrible and sound horrible when played in a high profile Executive meeting. Options to make this sound better would be to take an example from Exchange UM and use the recorded name or if one wasn't recorded use the AD Phoneticdisplayname. Even just using just the AD Firstname would be a great improvement.

    8. When some one is tagged for a status change an icon should be displayed next to their picture.

      When someone is tagged for a status change, have a tag appear next to their picture so you can visibly see who has been tagged.

    9. Response Groups part of SBS

    10. Status icons

      I have used another conference system that allowed some status icons in the participants screen. It had visual icons for statuses such as 'shortly away' or 'can't hear' as well as for votes like 'yes' and 'no' etc. That way it was really good to obtain an overview of the participants and their status. I would love to have such functionality in Skype (for B) as well. Now I do not see anything of this nature.

    11. DND notifications

      A way of letting a colleague who is on Do Not Disturb you would like to contact them, like a doorbell or knocking on the door. This functionality should only be available if they are not presenting

    12. Call forwarding default timeout as a Global Option

      At this moment the default 20sec timeout for call forwarding could be managed by users or via SEFAUtil.

      I think could be more practice if this (and some other call forwarding option) became Global Option, managed by a new Policy. The administrator could set it for all, or for some Group of users, could set it mandatory or not and so on....

    18. magnify.exe with skype

      "magnify.exe" ne fonctionne pas avec skype lors de la saisie de nos textes au clavier.
      une mise a jour a cet effet permettra d'aider ceux qui utilise cette fonction a avoir une excellente experience de conversation en direct.

    19. Allow, or simply better document how to run both Skype and Skype for Business in parallel

      Sometimes I want to work from home, but that doesn't mean that I want to wipe my Skype account and install Skype for Business over the standard install. No actually, I want to run both applications in parallel to one another. Can I do that? If yes, why cant I find documentation on how to do this?
