UB phones offer at-a-glance status of devices and lines. Cisco Jabber enriches this by sharing availability details, allowing others to know when you are available, busy or do no wish to be disturbed.
When you select Do Not Disturb, your UB Phone telephone number switches to Do Not Disturb. Neither your UB Phone nor Jabber will ring. If you only want to silence your UB Phone, select Do Not Disturb (DND) from the UB Phone's softkeys.
Jabber for Windows and Jabber for Mac can adjust your status automatically, if they are running:
With Jabber, you can see the status of any other UB Phone and UB Jabber user. Either search for the person you want to reach or add them to your roster.
Search for the person you are trying to reach to view their status, or add them to your roster for a bird's eye view.
Sort your roster by status to easily see if your colleagues and coworkers are available.
