Hi,

We're trying to implement a solution to enable users to see each other's status (In the office, Out, in meeting, and so on) through Outlook.
If exchange 2007 doesnt have that option, what else can we use?
I know of Office Communicator - not sure if its free or to purcahse, looking into it.

thanks

I think that the only option in outlook/exchange configuration is the use of public or shared calendars, but calendar is not meant to use for this purpose. Changing entries for every user status change could be a little bit annoying.
