  1. Sort discussions by folder

    Hi, it would be great to add an option to classify conversation by folder. As a lead project it really is difficult to follow up on project using only the grouped message feature. for example, I have one branch of a project, with sub-branches that are separated, and want to classify them as such. Don't want to switch to another apps as they are too much of a hasle.

  2. Edit the auto-recharge amount as per convenience.

    When you enable auto-recharge, there is not option to edit the amount. It gives a by default option of a certain amount when drops below a specified amount. There should be a setting to change both these amount as per the user. Please make it happen.

    In my case, the amount is 600INR when drops below 120INR, by default. But, I would want the recharge amount to be 300INR, as I use it for International callings only and cannot use to call local numbers due to restrictions in my country. Also, I use the same for my official work only.

    I did upgrade my skype to the newest version is 8.65, and unbelievable skype consumes too much my memory, eventhough skype is running in the background and in non-active but it consumes sometimes from 500MB to 1GB RAM.

  5. reactions

    Thank you for introducing configurable reactions to messages!
    It would be extremely helpful to be able to configure the order in which those reactions appear, as currently they are sorted just by the order they've been added.

  9. Remove previous contacts from the "People" list

    Currently, it is impossible to remove someone completely from skype. If you block them they are in your block list, if you remove them as a contact they still appear in a "People" list. There needs to be an option to eliminate previous contacts from the "People" list. I don't like having people in a block list but don't wanna see the names in that list either. A clear history option of some sort is needed.

  11. it is really disturbing that I cannot change my skype name

    I have changed my surname and now I find that I must keep my old surname because Microsoft has deemed it necessary to treat us just like numbers and now I use a name that is not legally mine anymore and to make matters worse if I do open a new account you will give me a computer generated name. You say becasue of fraudulent accounts , well yo are exacerbating the whole thing. I cannot even open a new one as myemail address is linked to the account I have and so I must reamin using an ex husband…

  15. Notifications on ubuntu

    What about improving notifications on Ubuntu?
    Today I only see a red dot on activities bar and, using multiple screens, it's hard to notice.
    Perhaps a configuration option to show a pop-up or something similar would be better.
    Thanks

  19. Real-name/ ID registration

    I've been bugging by lots of fake accounts, some of them even sent out threats but without real-name/ID registration it is impossible to locate these people. I suggest to set all accounts can only be bound to a real ID number so to stop skype becoming a criminal tool.
    Once we report such account, we hope skype team will have content reviewer to review the conversation and work with local police department to get those who are sitting behind the screens and kept doing illegal things.
