  1. Parental administration access

    My 15yr old daughter has Autism and loves to have the independence to use Skype to talk to her school friends and other family members. She is unaware of the social dangers that platforms like Skype can pose and we have recently been aware that she has been using the search facility to try and find friends but has ended up trying to contact random Skype members. I think that it would be good for parents to have some sort of password protected administration access to allow them to create a contact list for their child so that the child…

  2. Incorporate Microsoft Whiteboard with Skype

    This is similar to an existing feedback idea. Skype needs a whiteboard module. Microsoft Whiteboard is already one of the best whiteboards around, and it allows for whiteboard collaboration (but not any voice communication). So it would be a natural addition to Skype

  3. 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

  7. Meeting with more than one participants

    Skype Business
    After we were told that we needed to work at home due to the Coronavirus, I participated in a Skype meeting with a number of participants. It was difficult to maintain some kind of order to the meeting ( didn’t know when one could speak within talking over another ). I thought could Skype develop a feature, where one could raise a hand to speak, like one does at a meeting?

  8. option pour indiquer sur quelle vidéo je veux rester figée

    Pour les sourds, il y a besoin de permettre au sourd de focaliser sur une seule vidéo qui serait celle de l'interprète en Langue des signes et non le dernier qui parle.
