reinstate skype-to-phone calls of outlook contact
One way or another allow your skype-to-phone subscription members to direct dial their outlook contacts.
Either 1) allow skype to read outlook contacts so that we can one-click dial phone numbers from within skype (like skype used to do since pretty much version 1),
or 2) allow access to skype from outlook so that we can right click dial via skype from within outlook
Option 1) is preferable as one can then review calls in the skype history by contact name - And you already have the code from version 7 and before.
I purchased Microsoft365 in May after getting let go from my corporate job. Skype was included and this feature was available but just via the Microsoft People App. People App integrated Outlook contacts and had a button to call via Skype. The next Microsoft update after July 13, 2020, killed this feature - the button was gone. I know because Microsoft walked me thru rolling back my system to that date. I'm assuming that Skype & the rest of Microsoft365 are all updated together since the next auto-update killed the feature again. The Skype developers killed the connectivity with outside apps. This is all on them and needs to be fixed pronto. I may just have to switch back to my Mac.
