  2. Hi, I suggest allowing unlinking of one's Skype ID with Microsoft / Outlook account.

    My office SKype ID was created when Skype was not owned by Microsoft. But when it was owned, somehow my Skype ID got linked with my personal outlook id. My personal outlook id contains of my MS Office, Xbox Gamepass, Onedrive and my windows Login. My office Skype id is of my ofifce.

    Now, I am changing my current office, and my Skype ID is interconnected / linked with my personal Outlook, where there is no way of getting them separated. I tried each method, starting from adding new email id to making primary login, but in all case its…

  3. Could you add a check mark to the "online" status?

    Hi! I would like to offer you a small addition to Skype. Could you add a check mark to the "online" status? Without a check mark, I'm very uncomfortable. Thank you in advance!

  5. Import Skype conversations to a new Skype account

    So I would like to close my account and create a new one, but keeping the same Skype, which apparently is not possible because Skype is linked to one Microsoft account and this cannot be changed (nonsense). So after two (TWO) hours chatting with the technical support, I found out that it's possible to export conversations from Skype. However, apparently no one has ever thought of importing the conversations to another, newly created account. So basically now I have two accounts: the new one is the one that I want to use and the old one exists just because Skype…

  7. Set up a simple way to cancel a subscription

    I can understand that this would be an obvious thing not to do as it currently so difficult to do that your system encouraged account s to continue to pay what is a reoccurring amount. I have tried a few times to give up but I will cancel my PAYPAL based on not being able to cancel this useless subscription. It is also noted your Australian phone number is inactive and it is hard believe that MS allow you to be part of their suites

  8. I find using Skype in the past very frustrating. I go to use it in my money has been removed from my account I had trouble in the past

    To have my account balance easily accessible either in a small window in the upper right hand corner or left-hand corner or a button option that will display it immediately so I can make any appropriate decision quickly on using Skype and never never remove my balance my money from my account it makes it frustrating to work with Skype and breeds distrust and contempt for Skype when I want to use it more in the future and in the present please help with this

  9. View all scheduled calls in a single screen

    We schedule calls on skype as a reminder, but if in a day multiple calls are scheduled we do not get the visibility which one is after another.
    Having a view showing all scheduled calls like outlook calendar will be great.

    Nice to have : possibility to integrate with outlook and google calendars

  13. Control skype status auto changing

    Current:
    If skype is idle for some time will show "recently active", then eventually "away". There is no setting to disable this

    Proposed:
    Keep this as default behaviour, add a setting in skype to disable this behaviour and leave the user in the status they set themselves.
    E.g, if I set Active, I will remain as active until I change it.

    Reason:
    When working with multiple devices (E.g. a laptop for skype, outlook, other office tools, etc, and a desktop for heavy work such as coding) the idle device will eventually set the status to "Away" even though I am…

  14. Não consigo entrar na minha conta vinculada ao facebook

    Olá, bem eu tenho uma conta que criei a muito tempo atrás, e gostaria muito de alguma forma conseguir recupera-lá, pois muitas coisas aconteceram nesse tempo e o sentimento e desejo de nostalgia é o que me move a escrever o que escrevo agora. fiidoaleatorio.aleatorio2 é o ID da conta, atualmente eu criei uma conta secundaria e por acaso consegui encontrar essa minha conta "fiidoaleatorio.aleatorio2" https://prnt.sc/vi35zw , https://prnt.sc/vi3651.
    Ela ainda se encontra disponivel, por isso gostaria da oportunidade de poder recuperar ela.

  19. Refund any Credit - Abolish the 3 months rule for refund.

    Every Credit should be refundable no matter what the purchase date is.
    Otherwise, it is unfair for people who use and contribute to the beginning of this service and do not have the possibility to get their money back.
