This application provides users with a list of all available chat rooms and themes, automatically archives chats in a format that addresses auditing regulations, provides tools to look through the complete history of discussion on a specific topic, and offers filters and alerts to inform someone of new posts.

the new edition of Microsoft Office Communications Server also includes improved support for voice communications and mobile workers. The innovative attendant console permits support personnel or team secretaries to control calls and conferences on behalf of other users, establish processes to direct calls, and manage larger numbers of incoming calls through a software-based interface. A new Session Initiation Protocol trunking capability enables businesses to reduce expenses by setting up a direct VoIP connection between an Internet phone service provider and Office Communications Server 2007 without needing on-premises gateways.
