    1. Extension dialing

      Allow for dialing to an extension.

      Even if this is a full 10-digit-number that would be acceptable.

      Perhaps even adding a Dial Plan to the auto attendant would help narrow down the options for extensions to dial.

      • Add Voice Mail as an Optionin Call Queues and Auto Attendants

        Have the option of sending directly to Voice Mail.

        Anywhere with Auto Attendant Options and Call Queue Options where there is an existing dropdown list where to send the call (ie Menu Number, Operator, Forward Calls To, etc) Please add Option "Person in your company's voicemail" and send the call to that user's voicemail directly.

        Also if VoiceMail could be a Voicemail only user with a notification/delegation list without taking an additional Dail Plain License/Could PBX License that would be Awesomeness!

        • Ability for Auto Attendant to dial nonMicrosoft numbers for third party services.

          One of my customers contracts their support to a third party and their current IVR allows them to include that external call route as one of the Auto Attendant selections. We can work around this by creating a dummy client and license with forwarding but would like to see a feature that addresses this in the Auto Attendant. Thanks!

          • turn off robot voice "please wait while i transfer your call"

            We have had our Auto Attendant prompts professionally recorded, however when a user selects an option they get a "robot" voice of please wait while I transfer your call, or transferring your call to...

            This does not create the professional image we want to reflect of our company. We would like a way of disabling this, or recording these options too.

              • Clarify licensing page for Call Queue & Auto Attendant

                Auto attendant and Call Queue pages both say "Your organization must have (at a minimum) an Enterprise E3 plus Skype for Business Cloud PBX license or an Enterprise E5 license."

                Is that wrong? Isn't it available for all Cloud PBX users? (like all the other pages say)

                We're using Office 365 Premium (well, now a Microsoft 365 Business beta) with the Skype for Business Online (Plan 2) add on, plus the Cloud PBX add-on.

                We see (and are using) Call Queues and Auto Attendants.

                Can you clarify those pages, please?

                • Voicemail as a service

                  Treat voicemail as a service within AA or Call queue rather than having to redirect to a SfB user who must be licensed.

                  This service should also have the ability to notify a distribution list when a new voicemail has been received.

                  • Allow less than 1 minute for call queue timeout

                    The timeout for unanswered calls in Call Queues is between 1 and 45 minutes.

                    For the functionality we are using call queues for people will hang up before waiting for 1 minute.

                    Please can we have ability to set timeout in seconds

                    • Call Queue Re-Routing/Voicemail

                      When auto-attendant is set to call a Call Queue, there is no option to route that elsewhere if everyone is busy or no answer. It needs the option to call a Call Queue for X seconds and then re-route elsewhere or to voicemail if no answer.

                      • Convert User Numbers to Service Numbers (and vice-versa)

                        Many users of SFB cloud pbx (that are not on the auto-attendant preview) are using team-call groups with user numbers in the absence of auto-attendant. When auto-attendant becomes GA, these users will want to convert their user numbers to service numbers so that they can continue to use the same numbers with auto-attendant.

                        • Hunt Groups in Call Queues

                          If I understand the Call Queue functionality currently in preview, it simultaneously rings all users in the group. It will be much more helpful to have a Hunt Group such that calls first ring User 1, but if User 1 is busy, then instead it rings User 2, and so forth. For an organization like ours, that will help in a situation, e.g., where we have a receptionist who is the primary "Operator" but who is backed up by several other people.

                            We are going to moving all our numbers to Skype for business online. I need to be able to convert one of our ported numbers to a Service Number to make full use of the autoattendant in a production capacity.

                            • Call queue should show incoming caller ID

                              Currently incoming calls through a call queue show the name of the call queue instead of the caller id of the caller. It is important that people in the call queue see the caller ID.

                                • Change the process to request new area codes

                                  Currently, when requesting service numbers you're pointed to a support page which tells you to create a service request with a very specific wording and request the area codes you'd like to have added. This ticket ends up in the technical support queues, which will call you baffled as they don't know what to do about it (understandably). Perhaps the link should be changed to point to skypefeedback.com rather than creating a service request which cannot be fulfilled at all?

                                      • Office Hours can forward to external numbers

                                        When configuring office hours you should be able to configure it to forward calls to an external number such as a personal's cell phone or external company. As it stands, we have to configure another Skype for Business Account and then set that number to forward to the external number.

                                        • More Complex AA Menus & Destination Options

                                          Interface to build more complex AA menus with options (press 1 for Accounting, press 2 for Sales, etc.) with the ability to send to various call queues where queues don't necessarily require a dedicated public phone number. all destinations/queues would ideally have their own operating hours, ring strategies with general voicemail boxes for each queue that can be delivered to a tenant user mailbox, shared mailbox, distro list or public folder.

                                          • extension

                                            I need a way to assign an extension to a user similar to what we currently have in our onprem system.
