    The notification window in Skype for Mac is very annoying, it covers the buttons to answer the call and the tabs when I use the browser. The problem is that if I cancel the notifications then the sounds of incoming messages are not reproduced, so I do not know when they write to me.
    Please improve that, regards.

  4. All Calendar Sync with Skype Notification

    If Skype could allow a feature to sync calendars from different mailboxes - It would be amazing

    Most of Skype users have Skype installed on Phone - But not all Email Mailboxes setup on Phone - because its annoying to receive 1000s of mails each day and tedious to go through them.
    But the one thing thats important to all is Calendar from all Emails (Personal, Work etc)

    Getting notified in advance about any calendar event without having to have all mailboxes setup on Phone - Nothing better than that !!

  8. More Alert/Notification Options (e.g. duration, show/hide profile pictures/buttons)

    Using Skype for Business here. I find the banner notification annoying sometimes, covering up the corner of the screen long enough, hiding everything underneath for seconds, until it either times out or I click "Ignore". Both are disrupting options (having to click "Ignore" isn't exactly ignoring it, you know). And yet the notification feature is useful enough for certain contacts that I can't afford to have it entirely disabled.

    It would be good to have more options to customize the notifications to make it a bit less intrusive
    - customizable duration
    - fade out feature, gradually decreasing in opacity until…

  9. audio files

    My team would like it to be possible to set it up so that once someone connects to a Skype meeting a short audio file is played automatically?

    (Yeah, we can also find many reasons why it isn't practical, but for my team of audiophiles it would be great and you could toggle the feature on/off for those who'd dislike it.)

    Best Regards,

    Vigfus

  10. Have an option to force user interaction with Notification of chat message

    In a critical office situation, where patients are involved, it would be great to force a response to make sure a patient will be taken care of

  11. Mute and unmute automatically as per user configuration

    It will be good to have a mute option for notification in skype, I can disable notification under manage group but I have to again manually toggle the notification to on for future notifications which might be user will forgot and might be some important notification he missed. So kindly implement mute functionality in skype chat for some hours or day as per user configuration den after that period it will automatically on....then it will be more convinient as per user perspective.

  20. Screen share notification

    If my screen is shared, and some other contact wants to message me, they should get a notification about the screen is shared with other users to avoid any unwanted information to pop up on the screen.
