You can use the People Awareness builder to add value to the portlets you create.
In both cases, this builder works in conjunction with other builders to provide a feature-rich user interface for a portlets.
Example 1: Sales lead portlet
You built a web service portlet that returns account data for a single account. You are using a Data Page builder to generate the user interface (UI) for the account, and the first element returned is a person's name. Consider adding a People Awareness builder to the portlet and point it at the first element in the returned variable. The People Awareness builder displays the name and an accompanying icon with pop up menu capability for the collaborate services that are available (chat or e-mail, for example).
Example 2: IBM® Lotus® Domino view portlet
You built a portlet that displays a Domino® view. One of the columns in the view contains a person's name. Use the People Awareness builder to "awareness enable" name the column and tap into collaborative functionality. A pop-up menu will be available for each user's name to provide access to the collaborative services that are available (chat or e-mail, for example).
