Pending Area Behavior (PA)
When someone responds to your conversation by using instant messaging (IM), the pending area of the console blinks to indicate activity. However, the pending area does not blink when one or more contacts join a conference.
When members of a team-call group use the same Windows session and then log on to Communications Server 2007 R2 Attendant by using their own credentials, they share the same conversation templates and other options stored for the Windows session. Actual conversations and conversation history are not shared.
If you are a delegate making or taking a call for the manager and the manager is federated, you cannot transfer the call. Instead, the call is put on hold and you and the person being transferred receive a message that the Transfer failed. The manager will not receive a message.
