  3. Skype Manager to Retrieve assigned credit

    Allow skype manager to transfer back credit from subscriber due to excessive assignment or usage drops. It is just logical to allow manager give and take back credits to the subscriber for better "cash flow"

  6. CLARIFY in big letters: Deleting microsoft account also deletes skype account

    Add and MAKE PROMINENT that, because Microsoft and Skype accounts are now linked, you must delete the Microsoft account in order to permanently delete the Skype account.

    Also, add to instructions/clarification that you should identify all details of account information to be sure you are using or deleting the correct account. This includes Display Name, Login Name and Login Alias. You don’t know for sure until you see it all together. Promise.

    It has taken 6 hours of my Saturday to understand and finalize actions related to this process.

    I hate Microsoft for creating this mess in the first place.

  7. When customers cancel their account their bill, don't steal from them by billing them

    When customers cancel their account their bill, don't steal from them by billing them. I hate companies that ignore and make it impossible to cancel services. I'll add microsoft to the companies I'll never buy from again.

  8. Improve verification options

    Please improve your verification options. I lost a Skype account because when signing up to Microsoft with a new computer a few years ago and when I registered my purchase it seemed to overwrite my former Skype name with my email address. I lost some credit. Annoying but not a huge problem. Years later I'm getting emails saying my old Skype account has signed up to subscriptions. I failed verification because I don't have the same credit card anymore (it was cancelled after being stolen in the meantime) and I used the account only in a limited way. It's impossible…

  15. Provide what the updates include, within the Skype program

    When an update is installed, there should be a link within Skype (probably in Help and Feedback), where we can see what the updates included. Have spent some time searching for this but only found updates for previous update and prior, not the one just installed. Have found confusion, that even though a contact has same version, there are differences. For instance, my status stays as Away when starting up, but a contacts still changes to Active. If we could see exactly what changes there was to each update, it would help the confusion.

  19. Give option on Skype profile for "company name".

    Add the option to put the company name on Skype profile. A lot of times I'm looking for what company someone works for and it's not there because there is no option.
