Extending contact search RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    When searching for a user in Communicator 2007, it would have been great if it was possible to search for different keywords etc. in addition to the SIP-address and the name.

    Then it would have been possible to update each user's AD container with searchable information such as interest, knowledges etc. etc. A search for "vmware" would then return all the users in the company, who had vmware in their "knowledge-field" in the container, making it possible to approach the right person with a question etc.

    Does anybody know if such a possibility exists in OCS? Updating a custom field in AD should not be an issue, but I imagine making this information available and searchable in the Communicator can be a problem. Would this require a custom made e.g. address book ?

    Any ideas?
