Navigate history by time period (previous month, etc)
We should be able to go to a previous date, or at least rough time period, fairly easily. This isn't even very good on Skype 7, but at least it makes an attempt.
It's really annoying that i kept scrolling for almost 1 and half hours and it will say try again, i wanted to screen shot skype conversation from the beginning with my husband for immigration purpose but i couldn't. i could say I have tried many times for almost 3 weeks or more I guess :(
The old skype was better, I thought updates are supposed to be better not the worst
I hate how I can't see Skype conversation from the beginning like I always could on old Skype....WTF
I've got Skype 8.51 and still no improvement. You can't scroll for more than a couple of days before it goes back to the most recent message. It's really archaic guys!

please make a search for old messages or at least a way to copy the messages since the date you request in a pdf or word documents

because scrolling back to old messages takes too long which also results to application crashing, it will be of a big help if you could give the user an option to input date range. Old messages are sometimes too important (example in court cases).
In addition, you can not scroll. 90%, or worse of the time, one gets kicked back to the end! In my version, what ever my version is, there is no window wherewith one is able to type in a keyword.
55 to 65% of conversations are followed by a skype "fact finding" questionnaire. All the things wrong were NEVER even attempted to be corrected!
How does one know whether she/he has skype 7 or 8 or whatever?
while searching for previous chat history, please include a calendar option to locate the exact chat details. May be a Date range to search between chat swould be wiser.
Need a date filter so that i can move to a specific day and see my chats. It was enabled in last version but in this version its not
A feature to go back to an approximate time months earlier would be VERY helpful

We used to be able to right click contacts and view old messages from weeks or months ago depending on how long you've had the contact!! BRING THIS BACK!!
I would like to be able to go back at least a year in my conversations. I'm trying to find a conversation from June 2018, and I started at roughly 9pm, it's now after 10 and I'm only at September 2018. I
Scrolling up takes to long, and when you type in a key word it only shows the previous 40 iterations of it. But does not go back far enough.
I hate forced updates, and this update is by the far the worst. Just let us be able to view the history like we did in skype 7.
I miss being able to view chat history. It is inconvenient to scroll up for 10 minutes to view a week old message.
This feature could be an incentive to integrate Skype with Windows 10 timeline
