New in this Release

Find out what's new in the latest release of Cisco Jabber for Windows.

Client-Side 'In a meeting' Availability Status

Cisco Jabber for Windows now includes the following checkbox on the Status tab of the Options window:
  • 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:
Selected

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'.

Deselected

Cisco Jabber for Windows does not change the availability status when calendar events occur in client applications such as Microsoft Outlook or Lotus Notes.


Note


  • 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.

Add, Edit, and Delete Remote Destinations

Cisco Jabber for Windows users can now add, edit, and delete remote destinations through the client interface. This change allows you to provision users with CTI remote devices, without specifying remote destinations. See the Extend and Connect for Cisco Jabber for Windows topic in the Cisco Jabber for Windows Server Setup Guide for more information.

The User_Defined_Remote_Destination configuration parameter is now available to enable users to add, edit, and delete remote destinations when users have only a CTI remote device. See the Policies Parameters topic in the Cisco Jabber for Windows Installation and Configuration Guide for more information.

Multiple Resource Login

You can now specify if Cisco Jabber for Windows lets users log in to multiple instances of Cisco Jabber at the same time.

Use the LOGIN_RESOURCE command line argument to specify the default behavior during installation. See the Command Line Arguments topic in the Installation and Configuration Guide for more information.

Use the LoginResource configuration parameter to change the default behavior or override the installation setting. See the Presence Parameters topic in the Cisco Jabber for Windows Installation and Configuration Guide for more information.

Support for Cisco WebEx Meetings Server

Cisco Jabber for Windows now supports Cisco WebEx Meetings Server for on-premises conferencing capabilities. See the Set Up Conferencing section in the Cisco Jabber for Windows Server Setup Guide for more information.
