  2. Can’t touch this! Detecting unconscious face touches on Skype during the coronavirus pandemia.

    Hi. A large part of the world will be moving to remote work in the following months. Working via Skype makes us safe, but it could make us even safer with a simple feature. We all know that face touching can spread viruses, and we touch our faces during long conference calls all the time. What If Skype would detect the moments of unconscious touches and give us a small notice to stop. This would greatly improve our bad habits and keep us all safer during the coronavirus outbreak.

    We made a short video about this feature. Be safe.

  8. We NEED notifications sounds and we NEED to be able to adjust the sound to our own needs on ALL of our devices and computers.

    This is MOST IMPORTANT in Skype. When I'm busy I don't notice the little red dot when I receive a message and when I'm away from any device, I cannot hear the notification. That means I miss messages that need replies right away. I have already begun the search for a new messaging system to replace Skype if this isn't fixed/changed.

  15. Show which user kicked/signed out others

    Hi,

    Someone kicks/signs out others in school groups and teachers go mad! Sometimes kids playing with others microphone settings..
    Sadly there is no way to find out who is the troll.

    I have a simply recommendation. When someone was being signed out, there is a notification, that xyz user is signed out.
    This notification should be extented with name name of the user who did that. For example:
    "xyz" signed out by "abc"

    Could you implement this small change in the next release, please?

    Regards,
    Gabor

  17. 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…
