This service also has its own web interface and the web applications "Multimedia Business Card" and "Portal".
The web interface
The links specified refer to localhost and HTTP. If the pages are retrieved on another computer and/or if HTTPS (default setting on Port 7225) is to be used, they must be adapted accordingly.
|To be able to use the Portal and the business card productively, the WebService requires Internet access. This ensures that the version adapted to the current browser versions is always available.|
Multimedia Business Card
Multimedia Business Card (referred to in the software as simply ‘business card’) allows any estos UCServer user to be available over Internet-based real time communication. To this end, every approved user receives his personal contact page with presence and contact information as well as the possibility for direct, simple contact via links. The link to this page can be added easily in the Email footer or printed profile page, enabling a rapid contact via the intranet or Internet.
An approved user's business card can be accessed via a link starting with
http://localhost:7224/apps/contactportal/ and attached identity of the desired user.
Users can be specifically enabled in the user settings under "Services" with "Business card visible for anonymous users". In addition, all users of a Portal group are approved for the business card.
|It is recommended that users are enabled specifically on an individual or group basis, since with global settings potential user contact details may become visible that should not be public.|
All users can be activated with the global setting "Business card visible to anonymous users".
If a user is approved for the business card, new buttons are displayed to him in ProCall above the search input line that he can use to control his availability in the web application.
The button "Start post-processing" allows users to set "Occupied - In post-processing" in order to indicate to other users of the web application the non-availability by means of the presence state "Occupied". Pressing the button again resets the state.
The additional keys map all the Portal groups configured by the administrator, including the business card, to which the user can log on or off. If the key is activated, the user is "logged on" and his availability is displayed on the web pages. If the key is not activated, the user appears on the pages as "not available" and can only be reached via e-mail or a phone call.
All the users of the Portal Group are listed in Portal. The Portal enables visitors of the website to find the appropriate contact themselves and get in touch with them directly. Presence management automatically controls the availability of individual contacts.
As shipped, the user group named "Contactportal" is considered as the Portal group. The user group must be created manually. All members of the group will be listed in the Portal. In addition, the user group must be enabled for use in the Portal via the setting "Portal Group", which can be found in the "Services" group tab.
|For further information, in particular regarding the definition of additional Portal groups, please refer to the online Help (not available in the field test!).|
Availability over the Internet
The web applications can be used automatically on the local server, but maximum benefit is achieved if the users, clients or partners also have access to these pages via the Internet.
You can learn how to make the web pages and also the UCServer available for mobile apps from the Internet on the page "Mobile access".
