Full Screen Presence Added to the Latest 3CX Phone System 12 Beta Build

Version 12 BETA is no longer available for download. To download the updated version click here.

Unified Communications and Presence with 3CXPhone for WindowsWe’re pleased to announce the release of the latest Beta build of 3CX Phone System 12 which includes full screen presence with Active Calls within the 3CXPhone client for Windows.

The Active Calls section within the Presence Information window is a great feature as it allows group managers and users to view the presence of their colleagues whilst being able to manage calls. Group managers can perform a series of tasks such as pick up, divert and transfer calls with a few mouse clicks.

The Presence Information screen can be customised by dragging and dropping groups or the Active Calls section, and even move the elements onto your desktop to suit your needs.

3CXPhone for Windows can limit what call information is shown to the managers and users based on their extension groups. Extension group rights are used to determine what information is shown and to whom. For example, a manager in extension group A can manage calls of that group. The same manager might be a user in group B, meaning that he/she won’t have the same rights as they do in group A. Managers can see call details of any member of his/her group, independent of the call destination or origin.
