  1. Expose Outlook Contact Groups in Skype

    In Skype 2016 I need to re-create in Skype any Contact Groups that I want to use in both Outlook and Skype.

    It would be so much better if I could see my Outlook Contact Groups directly in Skype.

    For users with many Contact Groups, this could be done by creating a manual method to "link" to individual Contact Groups.

    For users like myself, with only a small number of Outlook Contact Groups, a simple checkbox such as "Include Outlook Contact Groups" would suffice.

  2. SKYPE NEEDS TO IMPROVE THE IMPORT/EXPORT CONTACT LIST

    How come you offer the Import contact list option without being able to import it? I've created a new account, exported my contacts from the older account however there is no option to import that Excel CSV file to it, it's ridiculous. You need to fix this urgently, because adding contacts one by one after this process is insane.

  4. phone number formatting

    How about allowing users to enter a phone number in traditional USA format, i.e. (234) 567-8910, or at least stating why the number is being rejected as "not a valid number."

  5. Why do I have random people under my Skype contacts

    I see random contacts under all contacts. I don't know them, have never added them and there is no way to delete them when I right click . It only says Add Contact and View Profile. They are already added somehow so why is there an option to add again but not to delete them? Please fix that. If I did not add them or know them, I do not want to see them.

  6. It would be great if there was a way to sync phone contacts, with the computer skype app.

    It would be great if there was a way to sync phone contacts, with the computer skype app. It is annoying to have to add them manually or type the phone numbers every time I want to call from my computer.

  12. Allow users to search and add unlimited Skype contacts

    A few years ago and before, users are able to search and add unlimited Skype contacts. Now when users search a certain number of contacts and add more than 5 or 6 contacts a day, their accounts get restricted. Remove these rules and allow users to search and add unlimited Skype contacts with no time restriction in between each search and add and always. All of us have many families, friends, loved ones, work people and people we need to search and add as our Skype contacts.

  14. Skype Contacts - issue with showing numbers not names on incoming calls - iPhone ios

    When receiving calls on Skype on the Windows 10 system, i can see the name appear, if the contact is in my saved contacts. The caller is identiifed - CLI.

    I have thousands of contacts syncing from Outlook. The contacts are on my iPhone too.

    When receiving a call on my phone (iPhone X) it only shows the incoming call number - NOT THE CONTACT. It only shows the contact name AFTER I HAVE ANSWERED THE CALL!

    If i go in to Skype i can see the name and contact.

    This is ONLY AFTER THEY HAVE CALLED. If they are…

  16. Contact search should allow filters, such as country, city, etc. to narrow lists

    When searching for long-lost friends to invite, lists of matching names are often huge and few on list have any filters, such as age, location, etc. which would help to narrow down search.

  19. Permanently block someone

    Currently, blocked contacts are still accessible and if you unblock them, messages they may have sent or attempts to call suddenly pop up. The link between a blocked contact and a Skype user should be completely removed.
