Unreliable, poorly designed bucket of frustration

Atreyu8

The product owners for this app must be incompetent, careless, or both. Skype for business is unreliable, slow, confusing (does the crossed out mic that is gray mean mute is on? Oh wait, tap the button and now mute is on... no wait people can hear me... so mute is on when this button is off), annoying because if you are the meeting creator, Microsoft made the decision to unmute you by default when you join the meeting even though all it takes is one experience in a typical conference room to see how people often dial into a conference room phone first so then there is always awful feedback when the meeting creator joins... basically it’s like Microsoft has never even observed how people actually use Skype and instead just insist it should be used their way and could care less. It’s exactly like every other Microsoft product so I’m not surprised, but this one is particularly bad.

Current state best served by a mercy killing

Basic functionality is confusing, broken, and/or unreliable. Advanced functionality, such as screen sharing and white boarding, is missing.

Using this tool for work leads me to alternatively: question my views on assisted suicide, and fantasize about a dark alley meeting with anyone who was an accessory to the crime of forcing me to use this dumpster fire.

Messaging vacillates between amnesia and existential crisis: Did I send a message, did they receive it, what did we talk about, is the recipient ignoring me, do I exist? However, the missed messages that tattoo my outlook inbox and “Conversation history is out sync” messages are symptoms of larger notification problems, but are mementos that indicate I exist.

Conferencing is more akin to professional gambling than professionalism. The odds that: screen sharing will fail to start or stop, there’s a meeting connect failure, or server error, would bankrupt a casino.

Do I like Skype for Business? The answer is not “Yes,” nor is it “Not Sure.” I am positive that I hate it with passion. Fix it quickly, or put it out of my misery.

Almost perfect

User Interface can be better. Its difficult to manage multiple back to back meetings and repeated meetings like scrum. Like both today and tomorrows scrum show up together in the upcoming meeting list and its hard to figure out which is which. I have many times connected to wrong ones and waited for 10 mins for anyone else to show up only to find I connected on tomorrows scrum.

Call quality is good and stays stable when moving from network to network
