Out of Office Indicator on “Contact Layouts” & “Contact Details” Panel
Attendant Pro now has Skype for Business style “Out of Office” indicator. It is on Contact Layouts (Contact Groups, Contact Search & Related Contacts) and on the Contact Details panel.
“Smart Call” versus “Call” indicator: Know when you are explicitly calling a Skype4B Contact or Using “Smart Call”
We are now using distinct icons to visually show when a call button is a “Smart Call” or regular Skype for Business/Lync “Call” button. The Smart Call icon includes an extra dot to indicate it is using Smart Call logic to determine the number that will be called.
|Smart Call||Will use Smart logic. Hover to see what it will call.|
|Call||Will call only the SIP contact|
