Chat continuity from desktop to/from mobile

I am up and down from my desk and leave many Lync (Skype for Business) messages hanging.

Implement search / review of persistent chat

Looking for details from several days ago in a busy persistent chat is a complete pain. There is no way to search for relevant information, and no way to quickly view a particular time series. There should be a search function for persistent chats that allows you to specify a time period to search in and/or specific text. For organisations that use persistent chats as a way of logging our activities, this would be ...more »
