So you think you know Lotus Sametime, part 2

by: gartenbe

The first quiz was focused on trivia, now here's one to see how well you know the instant messaging capabilities of Lotus Sametime Standard 8. I promise this one will be easier :)

  1. 1

    You can type a name into the "Type to find a name" field at the top of the client to search not only your contacts but your entire company directory.

  2. 2

    To transfer a file, you can drag and drop a file from your desktop to the message entry area of an open chat.

  3. 3

    You can add another person to a chat by dragging their name from the contact list and dropping it on the message entry field.

  4. 4

    You can use the screen capture tool to grab a screen shot and copy it to the clipboard to paste it wherever you would like.

  5. 5

    You can use the Emoticon Palette feature to automatically replace text as you type (e.g. convert "ST" to "Sametime").

  6. 6

    You can search through your chat history with a native "search" function.

  7. 7

    Lotus Sametime can identify people you have not chatted with lately so you can clean up your contact list.

  8. 8

    You can forward a chat (or a previously saved chat) directly to an e-mail.

  9. 9

    When using tabbed chats, you can switch from user photos to user names by resizing the window.

  10. 10

    You can choose to have your Sametime status automatically updated from your Lotus Notes or Microsoft Outlook calendar.
