Using Cisco IP PhoneMessenger Across Clusters

Users can add contacts using valid extension numbers. Extension numbers are considered valid when both the user and contact reside within the same cluster. If the contact resides in a different cluster, the user will receive an error message after entering the extension number and the contact will be not added to the user's contact list. In this case, contacts can be added by user ID. The geographic limitation does not exist for this method of adding contacts.

Configuring Meeting Notification Settings

The Meeting Notification feature allows users to receive incoming meeting notifications from a Microsoft Outlook calendar on their Cisco IP PhoneMessenger enabled phone. To configure the Meeting Notification feature, you must integrate Cisco Unified Presence with a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace server.


Note Cisco Unified Presence does not support Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express.


Before You Begin

Obtain the hostname or IP address for the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace server.

Procedure


Step 1 Select Application > IP Phone Messenger > Meeting Notification > Settings.

Step 2 Enter the host name or IP address for the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace server.

Step 3 Enter the port number for the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace server.

The default port numbers are 80 (SSL disabled) or 443 (SSL enabled).

Step 4 Check Use SSL if you want to use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to communicate with the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace server.

Step 5 (If SSL enabled) Enter the subject common name for the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace server.


Note If you select to configure a secure connection between Cisco Unified Presence and Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, you must configure certificate exchange between the two servers. You must upload the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace server certificate to Cisco Unified Presence as a cup-trust certificate. Once you have uploaded the certificate to Cisco Unified Presence, you must restart the SIP proxy service.

Information to Provide to Users About the Meeting Notification Feature

Provide the following information to your users about setting up the Meeting Notification feature in Microsoft Outlook.

The Meeting Notification feature allows you to receive Microsoft Outlook meeting notifications on your Cisco IP Phone Messenger phone. To use the Meeting Notification feature, you must set up your meeting invitations in Microsoft Outlook as follows:

If you schedule a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace meeting, set the Location field on the Microsoft Outlook meeting invite window to:

MeetingPlace: XXXXXXX ID: XXXX

For example, MeetingPlace: 4761000 ID: 1020 where 4761000 is the meeting bridge number and 1020 is the meeting ID.

If you schedule a meeting on another supported conferencing server, set the Location field on the Microsoft Outlook meeting invite window to:

Dial: XXXXXXX ID: XXXX

For example, Dial: 4762000 ID: 2000 where 4762000 is the meeting bridge number and 2000 is the meeting ID.

When the meeting alert message displays on your Cisco Unified IP Phone, you can join the scheduled meeting by pressing Join.

If you schedule a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace meeting, you can set Cisco Unified MeetingPlace to call your Cisco Unified IP Phone when the scheduled meeting is about to begin. On your Cisco Unified IP Phone, press Today's meetings, select the meeting entry, and press Callback.


Note You can turn off the Meeting Notification feature on your Cisco Unified IP Phone. Press Settings > Meeting Notifications, and turn off Enable Meeting Notifications.
