Chat history

As of this morning there are almost 38,000 total votes for preserving chat history with individuals in single threads.  This is a basic feature in almost every other chat client available today, from Trillian to Slack.  When will this be available in Skype for Business (for Mac, and in general)?

for reference, I got that vote number by combining a few of the ideas that are basically the same request: https://www.skypefeedback.com/forums/299913-generally-available/filters/top

I also have a similar issue with history being consistent between Mac, iOS, and Windows.  It usually shows up in only one of the three.  I don't remember it ever showing in all 3, which is my wish.

We are currently looking into IM conversation history with various threads. There aren't any further details to share at this time.

Thank you.  I sincerely hope that looking into this issue will result in a change/fix.  It's truly a jarring experience to shift from a chat client with history (like regular Skype) to Skype for Business which breaks out each conversation with the same person.

Yup, that's the primary issue here. If you hop between difference devices, a new thread will be created with the same person :(

Hello!

We did plugin for Skype for Business. It stores the chat history on client. You can try it. https://grovety.com/products/historage historage-open-window.jpghistorage-window.jpg
