Outlook 2010 contact card, UM integration

May 11th, 2010 | Tags: , ,

As with most Office 2010 beta testers, I was very keen (upon release to web for software assurance customers) to start using the 2010 suite at work. As a result I noticed functionality that I had previously not identified.

One example is within the Outlook 2010 contact card and the capability to playback a contact’s name. Where enterprises have Exchange unified messaging deployed (2007 & 2010), Exchange accesses your pre-existing voicemail contact name customisation for audio based name playback. Nice touch!
