  1. make some chats notifications still active in do not disturb state

    We use skype group chats at work and sometimes it's necessary to set state to do not disturb (for working without distracting). But at the same time some chats need constant attention, and also some private chats. Can we set some chats still active while do not disturb state is chosen?

  3. Orange background still gets displayed on desktop app in the task bar, even if I have seen the message on my mobile device.

    If I view Notification on my phone, I don't want to see the orange background on desktop app in the task bar on my Windows Machine. As I have already seen it on my phone.
    What is the point of still displaying the orange background?

  10. Highlight

    On new message Skype icon not blinking, just updates number of messages on icon that is not visible at all and we need to specially look for skype and see if it has some number over that, so if we are working on other file the number increment dont helps at all.

  12. new chats

    When you click on the Chats icon where it shows you the quantity of new messages, please have these chats move to the top, even above favourites, so you do not have to scroll down to them.

  13. Which of my Skype numbers is receiving a call?

    Right now, when I receive a call to my Skyoe account, I don't know how I'm receiving that call. Is it a Skype to Skype call to my Skype ID? Is it a landline call to one of my Skype numbers? If it's the latter, which of my multiple Skype numbers is the one being called?

    It would be great if I could see that information so I know what the call may be about. Thanks!

  17. Out of Office should set status to Off Work

    When a person has there Out of Office notice active (with a purple dot) then their status should default to "Off Work" rather that "Available".

  20. Please remove "Set your caller ID prompt." This is annoying. We are not interested and we do not want to see this every time we make a call.
