Setting up business cards

You can configure the IBM® Sametime® Community Server so that business card information about an individual displays when a user hovers over a name in a chat window or a contact list.

About this task

Business card can access user information from any of four types of storage repositories: the native Domino® Directory, an LDAP directory (including a Domino LDAP directory), a custom Notes® application, or the Connections Profiles application. Each repository stores user information differently, so to facilitate user searches, Sametime provides a search engine, called a black box, for each storage type.

Restriction: If you use only one business card repository, it must be the LDAP server that is used as the Sametime user directory.

Using information in the LDAP directory, you can choose the fields from the following list to display in the business card.

  • Photo
  • Name
  • Company
  • E-mail address
  • Telephone
  • Address or location
  • Title
