I've just upgraded to Jabber for Windows (9.0.1 Build 8802) having previously been using the CUPC 8.5.6 client.
With CUPC, I was able to add my own contacts in addition to importing from AD. However, with the Jabber client, I am unable to add my own contacts - is this a "feature" or has this option been removed??
Solved! Go to Solution.
I think it will be released at a later time. There is still some integration into Outlook that is not quite done yet. IE, searching your contacts from Outlook.
I hope it is so! We need to upgrade to version 8.6 after we tested CUPS 8.5 with Personal Communicator and we was
enthusiastic about this possibility.
I think it cannot be, that the new client has less possibilities that the older.
I have seen that in the user option page is possible to add contacts, but I can insert only "contact", "domain" and "alternate name". What are these fields supposed to be good for?
External contacts are not supported in the latest version of Jabber. If you have them in CUPC and bring up Jabber they do not show up either, they are still there if you switch back to CUPC.
My understanding is there will be an update in the July/August timeframe and that feature will be added. But don't hold me to that, as I that is what I was told in the Beta.
Jabber is much better in some aspects, but it is also missing some features that where available with CUPC.

Thank you for your reply.
I hope it is so! We will wait to see if this feature will be implemented and we will decide if install Cisco Jabber for Windows. The users needs to add contacts, to fast search and call they with click-to-call and we prefered CUPC as Microsoft Lync, also because in CUPC was possible to do this.
Any news about the release 9.1 of Jabber for Windows? Will this release needs an upgrade of CUPS to version 9.0?
I have installed and running Jabber 9.1.1 for Windows and I do not have the ability to add external/personal contacts.
May be in 9.1.2 which I was unable to run given it consistenly crashed upon login. Using Webex Messenger Service in the Cloud for Presence.
Installed 9.1.2 Build 12936
Was hoping to see the ability to add external contacts as the question was apparently answered by Jas last year.. "This feature is planned for the Cisco Jabber's upcoming release 9.1 in Q3"
We're still on version 9.1, but how many releases before we see this useful featire that was available in CUPC 8??
So adding external contacts in 9.2 comes with a caveat, users must be using XMPP compatable client. In addition there needs to be a Federation between your site and Google, AOL, etc.. at least that's been my experience.
