Connect with your network
Using the Outlook Social Connector with IBM
Connections, you can do the following:
- Add people to your network
- View your network from your Outlook client
- View all interaction you share with a colleague in your network, including email, attachments, meetings, and feeds
This plug-in requires Outlook Social Connector version 1.1 or higher. If you have not already done so, you must upgrade the default version of OSC for your Microsoft
Office application, or install it for the first time. For information on Outlook Social Connector and instructions on how to download the correct software, see this OSC article
on the Microsoft
The IBM Connections OSC provider
One of the different features of the IBM
Connections OSC provider and other OSC providers is that it supports multiple servers where most providers connect to only one server. You can connect to up to four servers, which is helpful if your organization maintains Connections servers for internal and external use.
Once the IBM
Connections Desktop Plug-ins are configured to connect to at least one Connections server you can enable those servers in Account Settings for Microsoft
Outlook so that you can integrate contacts from those servers in your social networks available from your Outlook client.
