MS-Office Communicator: Tips for using: Presence

No time for playing phone-tag (or “Phone-tag: Next generation”, aka email-tag)? “Presence” is your friend.

In Communicator, from your contact-list, right-click on a contact, choose “tag-for-status-change-alerts”.

From MS-Help: Tag a contact so you are notified when they are available: “Communicator can notify you of changes in a contact’s availability by displaying an alert whenever their presence status changes to Available or Offline. The alert shows the contact’s name, title, instant messaging address, and new presence status. You can click the alert to start an instant messaging session with the contact. Configuring Communicator to display this alert for a given contact is called tagging.”
