  3. Restriction for sending messages

    There is a checkbox for a particular user in which we can restrict for sending messages like suppose if I want to send message to my boss so that there is a popUp in which it asks me to are u sure u want to send this messages or not because if restriction is applicable then we can save to send unwanted messages which are send mistakenly to restricted user.

  4. Focus Cursor in the message text area ready to type.

    Hey just a thought but when I click on a Skype conversation the cursor is not always in the message text area. It always happen to me after I type my idea and look up I discover even though I clicked on Skype the cursor was not the the message area ready for typing. I then have to start all over. Very frustrating.

  6. Please allow to mention someone in group chat by his "Skype Name" (Skype ID)

    I often change my friends name when adding them to my contact list.
    I'm only able to mention my friend in group chat by his "original" name, not "Skype Name" (Skype ID), not saved name in my contact list.
    Then, if I forget his "original name", which I can not see it anymore after changing it when added to my contact list, I'm unable to mention him in group chat.

  7. How to add accent to Spanish words in Skype

    I type a lot in Spanish. Can't seem to find an easy way to add accents to words. Is there a way to do it? Tried Alt+ number but it doesn't seem to work. For complex texts, I use Word, switch languages, type what I need and then copy/paste. Is there an easier way to do it?

  9. Рассылка

    Добрый день!

    Добавьте пожалуйста функцию "рассылка". Вопрос в следующем, у меня в скайпе есть около 1000 контактов, это наши подрядчики (перевозчики). И мне им надо время от времени делать рассылку об актуальных загрузках. А простое копирование каждому с помощью ctrl+v отнимает ну очень много времени. Функция "рассылка" очень сильно упростит работу со скайпом.
    Заранее спасибо!

  12. High 10 Emoji

    I would love a "High 10" emoji on Skype for Business - there have been numerous occasions where this would have been perfect.
