  4. Birthday Reminders

    Hi,
    Please bring back birthday reminders which used to be there on Skype 7 and shown on the specific contact that has a birthday listed in the profile, I have not seen any reminders at all since I changed to Skype 8 long ago now.

    Thanks!

  7. Display Email When Edit Contact

    Display contact email also while editing or viewing any contact.
    I have many many conversations and skype name can be different than my sheet.
    I phase much problem to find the user of skype in my sheet as some contacts added by their email address and I can not check existing contact's email address.

  11. 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.

  12. privacy for profile

    privacy settings for profile, instead of making whole profile visible to contacts. Poor profile display.

  14. 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

  18. 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...

  19. Always Online Status

    I think it would be nice to have the status option "always online (available)" like the older versions of Skype.
    Because right now, if we are keyboard or mouse (trackpad) inactive for few minutes (example: watching youtube video) the status automatically becomes "away" even if we are still in front of the computer and that can be confusing for some of our contacts.

  20. 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.)
