Presence launch icon

The Presence window provides a quick way to check the availability of your co-workers. This is done via their Telephone system extension status (BLF-Busy Lamp Field) or, if enabled, via a blended combination of Telephone system extension status and Microsoft Teams Availability status.

In either Tray mode or AppBar mode, the Presence window can be re-sized and docked to the right or left edge of the screen using the dock "pin" icon.

Large Directory Mode

The Presence list is typically auto-populated by up to 250 Telephone system extensions or up to 50 Teams users. This threshold value can be specified differently by your service provider to avoid excessive demands on system resources for very large User directories.

If your Telephone system User list contains fewer co-workers than this threshold, the Presence window will be automatically populated with contact icons for all co-workers. Above this threshold, the Presence window will not be automatically populated but instead, contacts can be found via the 'Search' facility and added as 'Favorites' to remain visible in the Presence window.

Contact Sorting

Co-workers in the Presence windows can be organized by the Telephone system configured Department, Location or Group, or to display contacts as a single alphabetically ordered list of co-workers, select None.

If preferred, contacts can be sorted by Telephone number instead of Name order:

Contact Search

The Search bar at the top of the Presence contact list will display items in the main presence window that match a search for either First name, Last name, Telephone number or even Teams Availability status (if enabled).

Note: The search includes ALL items found in the Telephone system "Users" directory, whether they are visible in the Presence window co-worker list or not.
