This example shows how to add a contact when your VoIP service supports online availability via your SIP

Adding a Contact Using an Existing Address

You can add a contact by capturing existing information:

If you are on a phone call with a non-contact, click the Add to Contacts button in the call panel.

On the History tab, select an entry that is not a contact. Right-click and choose Add as Contact.

The Contact Profile dialog appears. Complete the dialog as desired and press OK.

If the contact method is Softphone or Jabber, an online status request is sent to this person. See “Sharing Online
Status” on page 31.
