State of knowledge

If you additionally register or log in with ProCall user data before participating in an online meeting via ProCall Meetings, you benefit from the integration of ProCall Meetings in ProCall Enterprise: You do not have to manually adjust/change your status. ProCall Enterprise can evaluate the meeting participation and updates your presence status accordingly and, if necessary, call protection.

Other ProCall users who are logged on to the same UCServer in your company will thus automatically see that you are in the meeting and not available.

How does ProCall Meetings affect the display/settings in ProCall Enterprise?

As soon as you join a meeting via ProCall Meetings, your presence is automatically displayed as "Busy" with the status "In Meeting", if the presence profiles are set accordingly, the presence is displayed and evaluated with "Do not disturb/Call protection". 

After leaving the meeting, your ProCall presence status will be reset to the previous state.

Example presence display

  • Presence is set to "Busy".
  • "In meeting" appears in your status.
Example screenshot: ProCall user status Busy with "In a meeting" note

Example call protection

  • Call protection is activated.
  • Presence is set to "Do not disturb".

You can reach these settings in connection with "Call protection" in the settings of the ProCall Client for Windows.

  • Cross-device Busy on Busy

  • and call protection controls the "Do not disturb" presence status.

Cross-device Busy on Busy

This setting sets call protection on all communication devices that support it.

Call protection, for example, causes you to be unavailable on the phone for an incoming call, incoming calls are rejected.

The range of functions depends on the used PBX and TAPI driver or Softphone settings.

Call protection controls presence status

This setting requires "Busy on Busy" to be activated across all devices. Because call protection is active during a meeting, your own presence is also set to "Do not disturb" during this time.
