You can configure the IBM
® Sametime Community Server so that business card information about an individual displays when a user hovers over a name in a chat window or a contact list.
About this task
Business card can access user information from any of three types of storage repositories: the native Domino
® directory, the LDAP directory (including Domino
LDAP), or a custom Notes
® application. Each repository stores user information differently, so to facilitate user searches, Sametime
® provides a search engine, called a black box, for each storage type.
Since there are three different storage types, Sametime
provides three different black boxes to search for user information (one per storage type). These are:
- LDAP – used to search a LDAP directory
- Notes – used to search a native Domino directory
- Notes_custom_db – used to search a customized Notes application
Using information in the LDAP server or the native Domino
directory, you can choose the fields that represent the information that you want to display in the business card. The available fields are:
- E-mail address
- Address or location
You can set up or change the details you want to retrieve by changing the values for these fields on the main Business Card page.
