12.4.3 Instant Messaging in the Workgroup Agent Monitor
Support for Instant Messaging in the Agent Monitor window allows the workgroup
Supervisor to monitor an agent’s IM presence as well as initiate an IM chat with any of the
workgroup agents. This functionality is deployed with any workgroup that has
implemented the Supervisor or Operator ShoreTel Communicator. All participants of the
workgroup including the Supervisor must be configured with Instant Messaging.
To implement an IM response during an inbound call, the user must have IM configured in
their ShoreWare Director profile. In order for the IM address of the inbound caller to be
recognized, they must be added to the user's contacts or to their buddy’s list. An IM server
such as Microsoft Office Comminications Server 2007 or the ShoreTel Conference Bridge
must be configured in the ShoreWare Director and installed and available on a separate
server. All users must have a profile created on the IM Server.
