  • UNIFIED NUMBER: Your office phone number has been turned into a “unified number” or “one number service” Means that you can now control and route calls in customizable ways PROVISIONING: Means that Sametime can now identify you within your telephony infrastructure Your unified number (office number) is used as your personal ‘gatekeeper’ of your incoming and outgoing calls Also means that you are already an SUT user. The default settings cause your calls to work as they always have. Whether you’ve installed the ST client and SUT add-on or not … whether you’re online or not … SUT is still at work for you in your telephony infrastructure. USING ST AND SUT: The ST rich client puts the control and awareness on your desktop and today we’ll cover the features and tasks you can expect to use…
  • Our design goals are simple: provide a social, easy to use experience, leveraging what you already do every day with Sametime. Throughout your experience with SUT, these goals should be part of your experience.
