  • Presence - the Cisco Jabber client gives you presence visibility to know if your contacts are available, away, or in a meeting.
  • Video Conferencing - place ad hoc video calls when in a chat or softphone conversation with your university colleagues (Note: Zoom is the primary video conferencing tool for university faculty/staff)
  • Forward Calls - set Call Forwarding remotely through Cisco Jabber. (Settings > Call Forwarding > New Number)
