Office Communicator Location - How is it used RRS feed

  • Question

  • The Office Communicator client enables me to set my Current Location as Home, Office or Create a Custom Location.
    This is great, and certainly something we are looking for, except...

    I cannot see anyone elses location, cannot sort/filter by location, in short I cannot see any way to use this information.
    Location shows up in the Communicator UI when I click on the Presence icon, but I cannot filter / group or access it in any other manner

    Am I missing something?

    We are Running OCS 2007 R2, Exchange 2007, Office Communicator R2

  • Currently the only way it is used is by displaying in the contact card.  I agree, there is so much more it could be used to do, but custom development and hopefully changes in the next version might leverage that setting more.

  • Thanks
    Just wanted to make certain I didn't miss something.
    Next version is a way out, so we will stick with Status to provide locaion for the present.
