In Microsoft Dynamics GP, presence is supported for the following entities:
Each of these entities can have a SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) address that is used to allow multimedia connections over Internet Protocol. The SIP address is specified in the Messenger Address field of the Internet Information window in Microsoft Dynamics GP. When Microsoft Office Communicator is running on the same system an Microsoft Dynamics GP, the SIP address is used to retrieve presence information for the entity.
Typically, presence information is displayed for fields in maintenance, inquiry, and transaction entry forms. For example, the following illustration shows presence information displayed for a salesperson in the Salesperson Maintenance window.
If your integration display fields for which presence is supported, you can display the presence indicator for those fields. You can also add presence support for your own fields.
