Add a contact to your Contact List

You can add a contact by doing one of the following:

  • Searching your organization's address book.
  • Using the contact’s e-mail address (for contacts who use a public IM provider or are members of another organization).
  • Adding the contact during a conversation.

 Note   When you add a contact to your Contact List, Communicator Mobile requests the contact’s permission to display presence status to you. Until the contact explicitly changes your Access Level to their presence information, you are allowed to view the default presence information for that contact. If the contact changes your Access Level, the contact’s presence status in the Contact List will be updated to include the type of presence and contact information granted at your new level of access.
