Jabber for Windows Questions

I have a client and I've got it working for a test user in his environment and I have a few questions about it.

1. I've see quite a few references to customizing Jabber's functionality using the jabber-config.xml file.  My question is where do I find some sort of reference to customizing jabber using this file?  I've seen posts with xml code for things such as single sign on, but can't seem to find it on the site anywhere.  If I'm overlooking it I apologize.

2. How do you delete a user's custom status messages?  I can't seem to figure that part out.

Hey Chevy,

The last three custom status are retained for each presence state (Available, Away & Busy). Older custom status messages are therefore superseded by newer ones.

Regarding deleting custom status messages, can you please advise if you are wanting to remove the custom status messages you create or if you are wanting to remove custom status created by others?

Hey Chevy,

To expand on Collin's reply, Jabber for windows currently does not provide a means of manually selecting a specific Custom Status and removing it. For Example, Available Status can save up to three Custom Status messages, when the fourth Custom Status message is added, the oldest custom status is removed. 

Hope this answers your question

Q. How does the clien tmaintain custom status messages?

A. Cisco Jabber for Windows maintains up to three custom status messages for each of the three system messages of Available, Away, and Do Not Disturb. Custom messages are maintained in chronological order; more recent messages overwriting older messages.

Thanks.  One more question.  I seem to have just noticed an issue to where calling from the client and from outlook both work fine in deskphone mode, but not in softphone mode.  Any ideas on that?

Hey Chevy,

Both options should work. There are no known issues with this.

If you use can make normal calls from Jabber then you should probably open a TAC case on this as it will require further investigation.

Re: Jabber for Windows Questions

The ability to delete custom presence status messages will be introduced in an upcoming release based on user feedback. Everything else will remain consistent for people who don't want to be bothered to manage custom status messages however.

+1 for adding the feature to be able to remove custom status manually.

My current CUPC customers are used to it and have it documented on the end user guides they provide.

yes, this feature is desired by most of our customers!

the "workaround" to add three new custom presence stati to delete one older status is not very helpful.
