Sametime QuickTip: Privacy Controls


You're working against a deadline on a key project. You need to be on Sametime to coordinate with your team... but you don't want to deal with other issues right now. How do you control who can reach you?

Sametime Privacy Controls

Sametime Privacy Controls let you determine:

  • who can reach you, even if you are in Do-Not-Disturb Mode
  • who can see that you are online inside your enterprise
  • who can see that you are online outside your enterprise (Public IM systems, other Sametime Communities, etc)

Using Privacy Controls is simple. In the Menu Bar, go to Tools->Privacy Lists. Drag & drop names (or groups) from your Contact list into the appropriate control list (as show in the screen shots below). Click ok and you're done.
