  2. remember log in

    I have a work and a private skype profile. Whenever I log out from one profile, i have to start typing in my other profile username and password (although i want to store the seetings on this pc system). i would much prefer an approach that is similar to google login, where it is possible to choose one or the other profile username and the only thing necessary to complete is the password...

  3. Profile - Save custom status

    When working, in addition to the suggested status message usually we need custom messages for day to day use. I think we should be able to save them and use quickly. Or in case that's not user friendly will be great if we can edit the suggested and after closing the status the should be saved as they were edited.
    Doesn't make sense to edit them each time we change the status.

    Thanks.

    Мои родители живут очень далеко, и у них нет возможности вместо windows xp поставить новый windows чтобы установить новую версию scype. До последних дней всё работало. Но тут вы сделали "добро" и закрыли их скайп. "Молодцы", я поставлю родителям другую программу, и помогу перевести всех их друзей на неё. А уж если scype подсовывает своим пользователям такое дерьмо, то и не стоит он того чтобы им пользовались. Да и не заметно каких либо улучшений. Гадко стало.

  8. Remember most used settings on new devices/logins

    When I install on a new devices, all settings, especially notification settings are set to defaults, and I need to change them every time to what I normally have.

  9. Sign in Feature

    Hello,

    I am enjoying skype messaging and calling features.

    But there is some feature which is quite irritating some time doing the same thing again and again.


    1. It will ask you about your profile every time when you log in.


    2. Remember me function should not be like that. currently, if I click on Yes while logging out. then next time it will not ask me for the password.


    In my opinion, only a skype id should be remembered as it is a desktop application and anyone can access it in the absence of you.

    Thanks

  11. Set default location when working remote

    I sometimes work from my company's HQ, and sometimes from my own home, via Remote Desktop.

    One feature of Skype that I really like is that I can set my Location, and it automatically changes when I'm working at HQ. However, when working remotely, it doesn't remember my location.

    It'd be nice if I could also set my remote location and have it switch to that automatically, but if not, I'd like to be able to set a Default location that gets displayed when I'm not working from HQ. (Basically, if I'm not working from HQ, I'm working from home.)
