Quick Reference: How to Contact Others

Each contact in your Contact List has a Presence button and a status text string that reflects his or her availability and willingness to be contacted. You can use the status indicated by the Presence button to determine which mode of communication is best suited for connecting with the contact. Office Communicator provides a variety of communication options. For example, click the Call button for one-click calling, or click the Presence button for additional contact details or communication options.
