  1. Reply function in Skype for Business

    I think the Skype regular version has the Right click and Quote option for replying for a specific message, but that option is missing in the Skype for Business. Could you please think of adding that functionality as its difficult to reply to a specific message in a conversation.
    Thanks!

  3. Group Chat - Individual Colours for each chat participant

    I would like to see a feature where we can have different colours per chat participant so it is easier to see each reply and indeed who replied at a glance.

    Apologies if this has already been submitted. I couldn't search 432+ pages

  4. deleting messages

    Please create an option to permanently delete ALL messages at once that we have sent to an individual in our chat history, so that the other participant can no longer see or access them, to protect our private information if we realize a person is no longer trustworthy. Skype SHOULD protect us from people who turn into cyber-stalkers and cyber-bullies.

    The only way to delete any messages at present (in a way that deletes them on both sides, not only on our own side) is to delete them one by one. This is impossible in all cases. Skype chat freezes…

  8. Quickly jump to date in chat

    It would be nice to be able to jump to a specific date in a chat or group chat instead of needing to scroll up really far.

  13. No emoticons in pasted text

    When pasting text into chat, I'd like at least an option to paste without emoticonification. Quite often my colleagues and I paste computer code snippets, and other technical data, and they often come out filled with emoticons which were completely unintended.

  14. Can you make my SkypeIn # able to receive texts?

    Many times companies need to verify my account access by sending a code to a mobile #. I don't have a mobile # but want to use my SkypeIn #. Can it receive texts?

  15. Do not delete or archive messages

    [COM] I use a translation service to assist our users. Please excuse grammatical errors.

    With the children I would like to set Skype so that no messages / pictures can be deleted, or deleted messages / pictures (30 days) archive host.

    I find it questionable when children (not of age) can delete messages themselves, it is a risk in my eyes.
    The parents must be able to control what the children do.

    I have already discussed the whole thing in the forum.

  16. Text Message SMS verification codes or forwarding to another number

    receiving verification codes for the US Skype number is not possible. But, I would like to know if I could just have all texts be forwarded to my normal phone number. Is this possible? Could I set up my US Skype number (+1) xxxx in such a way that it forwards all incoming texts to my normal phone number (+48) ? I am especially interested in verification codes for 2-factor identification like from Facebook or codes sent from banks.

    This is the main reason I bought the US Skype number, and I am quite angry that this feature is not…

  17. skype gifs

    It will be great to be able to select a GIF and see it on the chat and then click ok to be sent. Sometimes the previews of the GIFs are too small and it's hard to see the full GIF
