  1. Ability to change "Lobby" music

    When a user is waiting to be admitted into the meeting/conference call they hear music and it has pauses in it which gives the idea they have been disconnected. Allow admins to be able to customize what users listen to while waiting to join the meeting.

  2. skype for business microsoft teams admin center management for global admin vs skype admin

    currently skype admins does not have access to meeting policies, settings, and live events under skype and teams admin center dashboard. they can only view conference bridges and message policies.

    we do not want to have more global admins setup and since microsoft is gearing towards skype-teams integration, I would like to see skype admin being able to access teams settings as well.

  4. searching for new User/Service phone numbers

    When searching for a New User Number or a New Service Numbers in the Skype for business Admin Center I am limited to searching for only 12 phone numbers. Not only is this limitation very annoying but that annoyance is compounded because Microsoft assumes I will want those 12 random phone numbers that are returned because they are all pre-selected. I am looking for specific vanity phone numbers and I know I am not the only person with this problem.

    In able to make my search easier, Microsoft should make one of two search features available.
    1. The ability to…

  8. Make the S4B admin center use the same auth token as the rest of Office 365

    Right now, every time I click through from the O365 admin center to the S4B admin center, I have to log in again. This behaviour is on all tenants I have access to.

    PS: your category chooser shows "Lync admin".

  9. Constative Transfers of Skype for Business Online calls

    When Transferring allow the person making the transfer to have a private conversation with the person receiving the call without needing to make multiple calls. This a standard feature in many phone systems I am a partner and the lack of this deal breaker to many customers.

  10. Contacts information during the migration from Skype for Business to Microsost Teams

    Dear All

    when a skype online account is migrated to Teams, what happens to his/her contact? Especially, external contacts not noted on somewhere are important and should not be lost.

  11. Make default text ininvitations for PSTN conferencing (Skype for Business online) understandable for users

    The default text (in German) for PSTN conferencing in Skype-Meeting invitations is hard to understand.

    It reads:
    "Per Telefon teilnehmen
    Gebührenpflichtige Nummer: +41432105712 (Dial-in Number) Deutsch (Deutschland)
    Lokale Rufnummer suchen"

    Better would be:
    "Per Telefon teilnehmen
    Einwahl-Nummer: +41432105712
    Lokale Einwahl-Nummer suchen"

  13. Allow -BlockConversationFromFederatedContacts feature for Client Policies within SfB Online

    We utilise this feature within OnPremise client policies to allow for direct SfB outbound communications. We now have to revert to "Allowed Domains" which makes management a complete headache. Given this purely client side as it simply blocks incoming IMs from external sources I see no reason why this flag should not be available within SfB Online as well.

  14. Teams / Skype for business call quality details

    ALL Team / Skype related calls (single or conference) should go in that section Teams Admin Console>users>specific user>call history so that the call quality can be reviewed in one location. Right now only SOME of the skype calls are being recorded in this location. After speaking with support, they advised that only calls that are directly dialed in will populate here. If the user has selected the "Join Meeting" option in a Skype meeting calendar invite, the call will not register here and she couldn't tell me where it was being registered at so that I can review the different…

  17. App icon/thumbnail color change

    This may be the incorrect forum for this, but can you make the icon/thumbnail (the one that appears in the task bar at the bottom of the screen) YELLOW for Outlook? Right now, it is dark blue like Word. I click on the wrong one all the time. But if Outlook was yellow (like in the previous ver of Office) it would stand out. PPt is orange. Excel is green. OneNote is purple--all good! Just make Outlook yellow please.

  18. More frequent updates on Skype CQD poor call data

    Today Skype poor call data lags several days behind. I would like having daily (preferably even hourly) updates. This makes immediate troubleshooting and response possible instead of 5 days after the fact.

  20. Add Skype for business detailed reports for IM sessions like you have relased preview for Video Sessions

    This will help to get details how many IM sessions initiated with how many users, from which IP, from which hosts, etc like we use to have in onprem monitoring servers.
    Also how many session from internal netwrok , how many from external/VPN.
