  4. Since Skype has already feature for money transfer, it should have ability to transfer fund between Skype and Paypal.

    If I have xtra Skype credit, I should be able to transfer it to my link Paypal account and vice versa. It will maximize the ability of fund management for Skype users.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.)

  11. Forget Sign In Details

    Can we get the forget sign in details feature back? With the "don't remember my account on this computer" feature, I have to go through the entire process of resetting all my settings whenever I log back in. It's a hassle.

  15. profile

    I hope Skype will add 'story' just like the messenger and Instagram. So that for those students who are less expressive and shy, they can be confident by sharing things by posting. Students who studied online will not feel bored. Just saying

  16. Don’t show birthday option. Kills me interviewing because I’m too old

    Give me an option to not show my birth. It’s a detriment on some interviews. I’m old some don’t want to hire they legally can’t discriminate but if it in view it can hurt. I did try to clear it several times and save but it still shows

  19. Duplicate Profile

    I had a Skype username prior to MS acquiring it, how can I merge and maintain my contact list/credit? People cant find me using email. They need my Skype username, which they will not have, they will only have my email. Then I'm forced to maintain 2 separate accounts...not very smart

  20. Primary email designation

    It would be helpful to add an email address and designate it as primary with a check mark or a primary and secondary field. Instead of logging out, clearing history, etc. Just add email address and select as primary. Delete email address would be helpful as well.
