Collaborate securely with your colleagues and teammates both inside and outside your organization by using Sametime features such as instant messaging and online meetings

  • Make your instant messaging communication more interesting with the inclusion of graphics, images, and emoticons to convey more information in fewer words

  • See how Sametime works in common, every-day, real-world situations with tips, resources, and detailed screenshots

IBM Lotus Sametime software allows you to collaborate and communicate with others in real time. By using Sametime, you can communicate with your peers and teammates with the Sametime Connect client, embedded Sametime integration with Lotus Notes or Microsoft Outlook e-mail, or on mobile devices like a Blackberry. You will be able to connect to your colleagues via text, voice, video, or by setting up an online meeting with colleagues in several sites or countries getting the information you need to do your job and make better and faster decisions.

This user guide enables you, no matter what your skill level, to develop and increase your knowledge of Sametime and how to use each feature from start to finish. It shows how you can effectively collaborate with your colleagues and teammates both in your organization and outside your organization by using the features of Sametime. It's practical, and most of all, fun!

This book takes you from the basics of Sametime through to the most advanced features with a focus on real work-related situations along with plenty of screen prints to guide you. You'll learn everything from how to conduct a quick chat to conducting an online meeting. Or perhaps you want to learn how to take advantage of Sametime's telephony features or set up an online poll? The book starts by teaching you how to install Sametime and set up a contact list of people with whom you interact. Next, you learn how the chat feature of Sametime works, from using basic text to sharing screen-capture images. You learn how to use Sametime both within an organization and with other external instant messaging services like AOL, Yahoo, and Google. However, Sametime isn't restricted to just the Sametime client. You learn how to use Sametime from a web browser as well as from a mobile device. Meeting rooms with screen sharing, whiteboarding, audio, and video features are covered, as well as how Sametime integrates into an organization's phone system so that you can have a single place to go for all your communication and collaboration needs. Learn how Sametime advanced features like persistent chats and broadcast communities can help your project teams stay organized. And finally learn about Sametime 8.5 and 8.5.1.

Dive into Sametime and learn to use all the features of this rich collaboration software tool.

  • Approach
    As a user, you will learn, using real-world scenarios and tasks, exactly how to use all the features of Sametime. Beginning with how to install Sametime, we've included step-by-step descriptions and screen prints for each topic area in a clear easy-to-follow format. Each chapter builds on what you learn in earlier chapters and guides you into using the more advanced features of Sametime, but if you only want to develop your skills in one particular area, each chapter acts as a stand-alone module.

Who this book is written for
If you want to learn how to use IBM Lotus Sametime, then this book is for you. No matter if you're new to Sametime or want to become a Sametime power user, this book contains something for you. The focus is on using Sametime as a user and does not include information about development or administration of a Sametime environment; but any user of Sametime in an organization will be able to take this book, sit down at their computer, and learn how to use each feature of Sametime from start to finish.
