  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. Change "Skype name" to be labeled "Account Id" and "name" to "display name/ user name" to eliminate confusion

    Current labels within the profile are very confusing to the end user and should be changed to clarify what labels are internal tags and which ones are used for searching for users on the platform

  7. Allow conversion of Skype name to "live:.cidnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn" format.

    If a person, say Fred Blogs deleted their Skype account (or Microsoft account), then comes back to Skype a while later...

    They can't be live:Fred.Blogs anymore, they'd be live:Fred.Blogs 1 or maybe 27 .

    I took to creating an alias in Outlook.com that was my cid number as shown in OneDrive URL

    e.g. onedrive.live.com/?id=root&cid=nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

    I've noticed there are many live:.cid Skype names now.

    Not being the 'one and only' is not so nice too.

    And so a button to a one way trip to convert to live:.cid would be a kindness.

    Even if it's put as a OneDrive URL, as…

  14. LIVE NAME IS JUST SOME RANDOM NUMBERS AND LETTERS AUTOMATICALLY CHOSEN BY SKYPE

    When we create a Skype account there is no option to choose a username. You can only insert you e-mail. And then your live name just appears as random numbers and letters. This is very annoying. No one would want his live name to be anything but a name that he chooses. Not just some random numbers and letters. I hope you could fix this as soon as possible. Thank you

  16. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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
