Presence Management

Virtual Office Online lets you easily see the availability status of other Virtual Office users on your phone system and likewise allows your colleagues to see your status .

Availability Status Types

There are two types of status in Virtual Office Online:

Automated Status: Virtual Office Online automatically determines the availability status of each user by detecting whether they are online/offline or on/off the phone or attending a virtual meeting .
