Client-Side 'In a meeting' Availability Status
Cisco Jabber for Windows now includes the following checkbox on the
Status tab of the
In a meeting (according to my calendar)
Users can select this checkbox to enable client applications such as Microsoft Outlook and IBM Lotus Notes to update the availability status in
Cisco Jabber for Windows.
This checkbox has the following values:
When calendar events occur in client applications such as Microsoft Outlook or Lotus Notes, that application updates the availability status in Cisco Jabber for Windows to 'In a meeting'.
Cisco Jabber for Windows does not change the availability status when calendar events occur in client applications such as Microsoft Outlook or Lotus Notes.
If users select the In a meeting (according to my calendar) checkbox, Cisco Jabber for Windows displays only the 'In a meeting' availability status when calendar events occur in Microsoft Outlook or IBM Lotus Notes. Cisco Jabber for Windows does not display other availability statuses such as 'Presenting' or 'In a WebEx meeting'.
The Include Calendar information in my Presence Status field on the Cisco Unified Presence user page is equivalent to the In a meeting (according to my calendar) checkbox in Cisco Jabber for Windows. These two fields update the same value in the Cisco Unified Presence database. If users set both fields to different values, the last field the user sets takes precedence. If users change the value of the Include Calendar information in my Presence Status field while running Cisco Jabber for Windows, the users must restart Cisco Jabber for Windows for those changes to apply.
