Let people know where you are physically located and how they can contact you when you are on-line. When you do, others see this information, for example, when they hover their mouse over your name in the contact list or engage in an on-line chat with you.
You show others where you are by specifying geographic location settings or profiles. You can specify geographic location information for more than one location, for example, for your London office and for your New York office. That way, when you are sitting in your London office, others see your London profile. When you are in the your New York office, they see your New York profile.
When you log in for the first time or when you are in a new geographic location that does not have location settings specified, you will be prompted to specify geographic location information. To specify your geographic location settings in these situations, follow the instructions below, starting with step 2.
This feature is only available if your organization has an IBM
® Standard or Advanced software license.
