Microsoft Office Communicator Presence Etiquette – Leave a Note
In a previous blog post we talked about “presence” as a form of etiquette. Presence is a quick and easy way for you to let others know your availability. Another useful etiquette tool is the “Note”. We are not talking about Thank You notes, although those are a good idea. In this article we will show you how to leave a status note more descriptive than “available” or “away”.
Note Etiquette Bullets:
* Keep your notes short and to the point
* Make sure to remove your note when it’s no longer relevant
* Humor is a good thing (*depending on your company environment)
Steps to add a Note:
Adding a note is very straight forward, from your main MOC window click in the “type a note” box.
Then simply enter your message. In this example I wanted to let my team know I would be out of the office for a few hours.
To view other’s notes just hover over the note icon in your main MOC window and a pop-up with the note will appear. In this example someone is out to lunch.
This blog posting is intended to show you another small example of Microsoft Office Communicator etiquette.
