Optimization of MS365 Presence Synchronization – bidirectional!
The synchronization of the availability status is an essential feature of the integration of the Communi5 Voice Application Server with MS Teams since release 7.2.
However, practical experience with our customers has shown that Microsoft’s notification is not always reliable when a user’s presence status changes. Communi5 has built in numerous mechanisms to solve or successfully work around these problems. Presence is generally managed on user level, presence profiles can be created and flexibly controlled via presence mapping.
Ultimately, this results in greatly improved reliability of presence information, in both directions:
From MS Teams to Communi5 user: synchronization of Presence status with Dialog-Info (“in conversation”, “in a presentation”), Outlook Calendar (e.g. “busy”) and of course Presence in the classical sense (e.g. “absent”).
From Communi5 user to MS Teams: synchronization of presence status with dialog info (“in conversation”), and classic presence (e.g. “available”, “absent”).
Alarming and Monitoring
In order to keep an even better eye on your system, Communi5 offers a specialized solution for alerting and monitoring with Release 7.4. Based on Grafana, dashboards have been developed that allow you to monitor specific components of the Voice Application Server.
