  1. delete microsoft team conversation

    It is better to manage the conversation of Microsoft Team. I suggest we could delete conversation or we could remove at least the member of conversation.

    • Sort Skype for business (Lync) GROUPS alphabetically. Omitted over many revisions, especially for business.

      I have many thousands in my company and interact with individuals mainly by their groups, so as people leave or join the company, my Lync groups content changes. This makes group names my hierarchical focus when I need to contact a resource. To have to look up and down a list of 50 unsorted group names each time, for the specific group I need, so as to contact a resource, is a pain without alphabetical sorting. The feature to sort groups as well as individuals should be a given but MS has left it out in revisions of this product,…

      • Skype for Business - Set Caller ID Functions in Admin Portal

        There's documentation on how to set the Caller ID options via PowerShell, yet some of the documentation is out of date and not as thorough as it should be. The problem with it is that it's complicated and confusing for simple options that should be available in the Portal under Skype for Business Admin. Most customers wanting to set Caller ID options like Anonymous or a Service Number will not want to use PowerShell for these when it's confusing and complicated to even get a connection to run the proper cmdlets. In addition Mac users cannot use PowerShell to modify…

          • Allow Contact Groups in Skype for Business to be sorted alphabetically & to toggle between manual and default sort (alphabetically).

            I have created many contact groups in Skype for Business and I want to be able to resort them all alphabetically to save time searching through my whole list to find a group. I know I can currently move the groups manually into the order I want them, but with 40 + groups, that will take a long time, time I don't have to spend while working in a call center environment.

            There is a regkey value for Communicator (HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Communicator\<SIP URI>\GroupStateCacheU\SortGroups REG_BINARY) which can be deleted to set sort order back to default. I attempted to delete this value for…

              • Office 365 Groups automatically populate in Skype for Business as Contact Groups

                Office 365 Groups that we build/maintain in Office 365 should show up as "Contacts Lists" in Skype for Business with all of the members inside these groups. This would help user adoption as users wouldn't need to set up a bunch of unique groups (that basically mirror our Office 365 Groups anyway). As well, it will help navigate large lists of personnel.

                  • Allow Default Time Zone to be set in Skype Web Schedule

                    Currently the Skype Web Scheduler chooses the default time zone based on the computer you are logged into. The problem is it only gets the offset (ie -5:00) and not the actual time zone. So, if you are set to Eastern Time for instance, Web Scheduler just sees -5:00 and picks the first time zone in this offset, in this case Indiana. This poses a problem as Indiana and Eastern Time (or other time zones in this offset) don't follow the same DST rules. If the actual time zone can't be selected for technical reasons, it would be nice to…

                            When a person sends an IM to a contact who is offline, the message is not sent anywhere. When the off-line contact becomes available they don't know a message was sent to them. Regular Skype and other IM programs show messages received while off-line. My users are hesitant to consider Skype for Business because it's missing this feature.

                                I need to able to block phone calls based on country prefix in SFB for a specific response group.
                                This would help protect back office agents from malicious calls. For example if you do business with country A, and are harassed by calls from country B, you should be able to block those.

                                • Skype - Communication credits to act as a calling plan

                                  For the users to be able to perform calls to PSTN lines from Skype for Business, we need a skype license, a phone system license and calling plan license including a bunch of minutes. For some users, this amount of minutes is way too much (and implicitly all the licenses combined is too expensive).

                                  It would be so great that Microsoft enable "Communication credits" to be used to perform domestic and/or international calls without the needs of another calling plan.

                                  The communication credits, will then act as a calling plan (pay as you use plan). It could also remain associated…

                                        Skype for Business 2015 - Alphabetizing Groups can be done manually. It would be nice if a place existed to do it by a click not drag n drop.
