Do you have Office Communicator at work?  Ever wonder how some of your colleagues get that little “note” icon beside their name that has some witty comment like “Working Hard”, “Leave me alone I have a tender to finish”, or “Working from home today”?

Setting a note in Office Communicator is very easy.  In fact, there are only 3 steps

1) Think of the note you want to use!

2) Look just underneath your name in the Office Communicator 2007 window – specifically for a little bit of italic text with the words “Type a note”

3) Click there, type your note, and hit enter

There you go, now you can let your colleagues know what is going on.  Think of it as your FaceBook status if FaceBook has been banned in your organisation!

’till next time!

  1. Does anyone know the answer to Dave T.’s Question? That is exactly what I’m trying to find out.
    Thank you,

  2. I don’t have the option of Type a Note on my Office Communicator. I have Office Communicator 2007 R2 installed with Version 3.5.6907.206.

    Is there a way to have that option enabled?


  3. I put a note in the Type a Note box..and click enter. Most of my colleagues have communicator 2005, and they do not see the note icon next to my name on the communicator list. I have tried with several colleagues. I think there is an error between communicator 2005 and 2007. The note function is not interfacing.
