Presence Status

You can enable users to monitor the status of other remote users and phones.

By adding remote users to a buddy list, users can monitor changes in the status of remote users in real time or they can monitor remote users as speed-dial contacts. Users can also manually specify their status in order to override or mask automatic status updates to others and can receive notifications when the status of a remote line changes.

Polycom phones support a maximum of 64 buddies for Open SIP server platforms and 200 contacts on the Skype for Business server. For information on Skype for Business contacts, refer to the Polycom UC Software with Skype for Business - Deployment Guide on Polycom Voice Support.
