  1. Add AOL to the list for contacts

    Not everyone uses, or wants to use, Outlook as their default Microsoft email platform. Allow AOL to be added as a default email service provider! It's old school, but lots of people are old school. Old school got us to where we are today.

  2. recording

    Hi,

    I'd like to retrieve my recording. How can I do that.
    I had a recording on 23 October.
    I do need it please.

    The recommendation is for longer time frames, or to have these retrievable from history file.

  5. anonymous contacts abound

    right now, a person who enters a contact name is faced with figuring out which of the 3, 4, 5 or 6 presented (anonymous) contacts is the friend. currently, with OPTIONAL photos (or stupid photos) and no OPTIONAL location, it could take weeks to figure out which contact is the right one. skype currently breeds mistaken identities and name hijacking. right now, the skype contact method is a failure.

  11. Be able to recognize people by their favorite color in addition to their name or profile pic

    Recognizing people by their favorite color…
    -Would prevent chat accidents.
    -Would make searching for friends faster.
    -Would help people distinctively distinguish one friend from another.
    I have seen and heard of many chat accidents, where people thought that they were chatting on a different group chat or to someone else and sent some embarrassing messages. This feature would help prevent that from happening. When searching for a contact you could search for their name and if there is more than one result, you just look for their favorite color. It makes things faster and more efficient. And when you scroll…

  12. I used to be able to find all my outlook contacts in my Skype on my PC. I couldn't make it work. A pity

    Do what I was able to do in the past: find all my outlook contacts phone numbers cell and direct numbers in Skype.

    It doesn't look like rocket science, but was very usefull.

    Since this is no longer possible apparently, I use Skype 1% of what I used to use it for in the past. I will then probably stop all my paid subscriptions... Too bad

  14. Instructions on how to build a Skype Contact List

    I cannot find how to build my skype contact list in the features or set-up instructions. Creating a tab for this would be most helpful. Thanks.

  15. Delete contacts in bulk

    Hope we can delete multiple contacts at once. It’s so tedious to delete it one by one.

  17. Delete contact from Search > People

    Permanently delete contacts still appear in Search > People.
    That's a big issue in terms of privacy & RGPD.

    Deleted contacts should be permanently deleted.
    There shall be no trace that such connection actually happened in the first place.

  18. Permanently delete contacts => Delete Forever & with no trace

    Contacts cannot be permanently deleted. And that is very problematic for privacy & RGPD issues:
    - Deleted contacts still appear in Search > People
    - They also appear in Search > When I start typing a letter, with "chatted 3 months ago"
    Deleted contacts should be permanently deleted, and there shall remain no trace that such connection happened in the first place.

  20. Show active and idle contacts

    Currently we have the option to select list active contacts, and that is fine.
    Could you please also have an option "Active and idle contacts" so that we can have the list of active(Green) and idle(orange) status together?
