  1. pop up message box needs "send on enter"

    Pop up message box needs "send on enter" functionality. I don't want to start a new line with enter on the desktop pop-up box. I just want to type and hit enter to send it on its way.

    Oggetto: Identificazione di colui che rimuove utenti dalle chiamate di gruppo. Identification of who removes users from group calls.

    URGENTE!!!!! Sono un insegnante di un istituto tecnico ed ho già inviato una richiesta in merito all'oggetto della presente. In questo momento di didattica a distanza , dove utilizziamo tantissimo Skype , necessita inserire una modifica nelle chat di gruppo, la possibilità che venga segnalato chi rimuove utenti durante la chat. Ritengo sia doveroso da parte vostra fare questo aggiornamento, prima possibile. Ed inoltre mi sembra doveroso e cortese avere una risposta da parte vostra anche per tutti gli utenti che…

  6. Disable Notification for specified chat

    Hi. Thanks for your hard work and Skype looks significantly better now that it was a couple of years before. I would like to propose a feature that to have ability to set up notification only from a specific person or list of persons. The reason is that I have a lot of chats and I get all notifications from them. Is it possible to disable notification only for some chat and have active for another? Thank you in advance.

  7. We NEED notifications sounds and we NEED to be able to adjust the sound to our own needs on ALL of our devices and computers.

    This is MOST IMPORTANT in Skype. When I'm busy I don't notice the little red dot when I receive a message and when I'm away from any device, I cannot hear the notification. That means I miss messages that need replies right away. I have already begun the search for a new messaging system to replace Skype if this isn't fixed/changed.

  10. Add "Pounce" feature to notify me when someone I want to talk to comes online

    Pidgin.IM has a nice feature where you click on a contact to set up a "buddy pounce". You can set it to notify you when a particular contact comes online. You can specify if you want this to happen one time or recurring. You can also set how aggressive you want the notification to be. Just a popup, just a sound, popup with sound, or even automatically sending your contact a message when they appear to start the conversation. This would be a nice thing to have in Skype.

  11. Instead of making the number next to chats say how many chats you got notifications in, let it say how many notification you have in total.

    Just let the chat notifications be the actual amount of notifications you got, instead of how many chats you got notifications in, because it throws me off, even though it is not important.

  13. Throttle or limit notificatoins

    It would be very nice to be able to throttle or limit notifications, for example only notify once that new messages are available, or once per a period of time as new messages arrive. When I am busy working on something else getting endless notifications that a conversation is taking place is more than distracting, the popups can block my work. The only way to limit this behavior is to disable notifications which means I never know when I have a message, or enable a do-not-disturb mode that also blocks every other app that has a more well behaved notification…

  14. Activity

    It would be good if users could have an activity indicator that changes color to indicate how much the contact is busy in various chats. As a user one should be able to configure how many messages and new chats lead to an increase in the indicated activity. The purpose of this is to be analogous to me wanting to speak to someone but seeing that a lot of other people have been conversing with the person in question, and thus deciding to wait a little bit to give my colleague some time to breathe or collect their thoughts. After…

  16. what is new with this last update

    After an update, a link should be given to a page summarizing what is new with this update.... (make separate paragraphs: new features, improvements, bug corrections, "under the hood" (this would b for changes that are important but not readily visible, such as improvements in transmission, error corrections, and the like...).

  17. What happened to the "Away" status? I have multiple devices active but am not near all or any all the time. The "Do not disturb" is wrong.

  19. Show which user kicked/signed out others

    Hi,

    Someone kicks/signs out others in school groups and teachers go mad! Sometimes kids playing with others microphone settings..
    Sadly there is no way to find out who is the troll.

    I have a simply recommendation. When someone was being signed out, there is a notification, that xyz user is signed out.
    This notification should be extented with name name of the user who did that. For example:
    "xyz" signed out by "abc"

    Could you implement this small change in the next release, please?

    Regards,
    Gabor
