X-Lite for Mac User Guide



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 person who is not a contact, click the Add to Contacts icon in the call

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

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

If the contact method is Softphone or Instant Message, an online status request is sent to this person. See
“Sharing Online Status” on page 25.

Enter the person’s softphone number in
the Softphone field

As soon as you add a Softphone entry, this field
automatically appears. X-Lite will share online
presence information with this person using this
phone number.

In addition, these fields appear. See the table for
information on these fields.
