Presence enables you to detect the phone status of your colleagues and display on your desk phones. Presence-capable phones have status indicator lights which allow the Admins to see who is available, busy, or on hold. Administrators can configure Presence settings for QAs, Supervisors, and Managers alike who need to monitor calls made by other Users in real time. See Admin: Configure Presence Settings, to learn more.
