This isn't new, but one of my favorite preference settings is this one:
This preference prevents you from accidentally starting a chat or call with a group when you didn't meant to. (You still can, you just get prompted first).
You can find this setting on the Contact List tab of preferences.

We're looking for input and your thoughts about opening meeting room windows. If you are using the Sametime web-based meeting room manager to find/search for a meeting room to join, do you want to open the meeting room in a new window, new browser tab (if your browser is set to use tabs) or reload the room in your current browser view when you click the join meeting button?
I really like using the photo view in Sametime meetings and photo views in my Contacts list (e.g., the Matrix view of the Primary Contacts list), because I find it easier to find my co-workers by their photos:
How about you? Do you use those views?
Anyone out there work for a company where employee photos aren't used?

Some of you may have seen the Connections business card used in the embedded version of the Sametime livenames in Lotus Notes. The business card appears when you hover over a livename with your mouse cursor. This business card shows the contact's photo as set in Lotus Connections. The Sametime "Primary Contacts" panel allows you to set your own custom photo for a person. What are your thoughts about how this should relate to the business card? Which photo should you see in other places where the livenames and business card appear outside of primary contacts (such as the inbox, or regular Sametime contact list?)

Do you use online polling in meetings? If so, I have a few questions for you:
1) How often do you use online polling? In what types of meetings?
2) Do you ever use the same question over and over again? If so, in what context?
3) Right now, our polling tools support anonymous responses only. How critical is it to you to see who entered which response?
4) Do you have need from an online meeting tool to tie multiple polling questions together, into more of a survey format?
5) Anything else you'd like to us to know about your use of polls in meetings?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

We've suggested a few topics for our conversation such as:
Meetings users -- did you know that you can easily remove content from your room? Here are some tips:
1. For a quick way to remove all content (discussion and library content) from a room, choose the Remove Room Content command from the Room Tools menu.
2. To remove just the discussion content, click the "x" in the bottom of the discussion widget (only room owners and managers have access to this). If you're on the installed client, you can still get back to the chat content later by creating a meeting report:
3. To remove all content just from the library, in the installed client, right-click anywhere in the library and choose Remove All. You'll be prompted before the content is removed.
For future releases, we're looking at giving you a choice when you end a meeting to also clear out the content. Would you like such a choice? Let me know!
Do you ever set a different sound to alert you to different kinds of Sametime invitations? For example, a unique sound for one-on-one chat, click to call, a broadcast announcement?
Did you even know that you can set up Sametime to have these different sounds?
We currently default to the same sound for these invitations.
Mary Beth Raven is looking for input and ideas regarding the use of sounds in the Lotus portofolio.
Go to the Notes Design blog and share your ideas on a Lotus Soundscape!
I'll post the results back here on this blog in a few days.
