Each Microsoft® Office Communicator 2007 R2 contact, including you, has a full set of presence attributes that describe availability, activity, and willingness to be contacted. Presence attributes also include contact information such as phone numbers, personal notes, and location. The amount and type of presence information that you make available to others is controlled by Access Levels. For example, when you assign a contact to the Team Access Level, that contact has access to your mobile phone number, calendar “free or busy” information, and your location, as shown in this table.

*If these attributes are defined in Microsoft® Active Directory®, they are visible to all contacts in your company, regardless of Access Level. They are also visible to federated contacts, depending on the assigned Access Level. They are not visible to public instant messaging contacts.
