Using instant messaging in the Domino® Directory

The Domino® Directory is enabled for instant messaging, meaning that you can conduct an online chat directly from the Domino® Directory.

The instant messaging Chat feature is available only if you have a IBM® Sametime® server, and only for Microsoft Windows versions of Domino® and Notes®.

From the People document, Group document, and from the Domino® Directory itself there is a Chat option in the menu bar. Click Chat and choose from the following options:

  • Chat with -- Open a chat with the person whose name is currently selected in the open document or directory.
  • Add to Instant Contact List -- Add the selected person's name to an instant messaging contact list that you choose.
  • Show/Hide Contact List -- Toggles between displaying the names in the contact list and hiding the list.
