This tool supplies users with a list of all active discussion rooms and themes, automatically archives chats in a format that addresses compliance regulations, delivers utilities to search the complete history of chat on a specific theme, and offers triggers and alerts to notify people of new updates.

the new edition of Office Communications Server 2007 also includes enhanced support for voice and mobility. The new attendant window permits support personnel or team secretaries to control calls and conferences on behalf of other users, establish workflows to route phone calls, and manage larger numbers of incoming calls through an intuitive software interface. The Session Initiation Protocol trunking feature enables companies to cut expenses by establishing up a direct Voice over IP connection between an Internet phone service provider and Microsoft Communications Server without needing on-premises VoIP gateways.
