  2. Bring back Custom Notification settings!!!!

    I recommend Skype to restore the feature for notification that is DO NOT show a preview banner at the right corner and keep the sound when having a notification or separate those options. Currently, when I turn off "Chat Notification", I can't hear the sound when having a notification, but if I turn on "Chat Notification", a banner shows at the right corner with chat content. It's really inconvenient function.

  3. notofication

    Return the red dot to notification area and task bar. I've missed a lot of message because task bar doesn't change and the little bitty small blue dot on a blue background is not a notification indicator easily noticed. Notifications as it is now is the cause of me missing messages and before the lates

  5. Set 'Do not disturb' time

    Let users set a time frame for DO NOT DISTURB to be active. As in Do not disturb from say 18:00 to 9:00.

    Just add it please. There is no question about it. It's a required feature.

  7. Sound alert before auto-answering

    In auto-answering mode it would be great to alert me about incoming call before answering or realize 2 seconds delay before answering call. I feel myself scared when suddenly somebody starts talking to me from speakers. In general this feature is very useful for me but needs to be adjusted.

  10. Ability to clear notifications

    Notifications can hold privacy sensitive data. There seems currently no way to clear those notifications. It's a must-have.

  14. Persistent Notifiations.

    Keep notification on screen until clicked! This i basics of IM. Why to have IM if you can see notifications because you were loking somewhere else for 10 seconds (skype notification disappears after few seconds)? ICQ had it in 1997 or 1996. An previous version of SKYPE had it. Other applications have it. Whats wrong with skype team? I am here because I missed another message from coworker
