There has been a lot of confusion over two new features in Hannover: Recent Contacts and Collaboration History.
Recent Contacts is a dynamic view within the Contacts application. This new view is a list of the people you have e-mailed, of people that have sent you e-mail, and of people that you have chatted with. The algorithm used to determine this view counts frequency as well as recency.
Collaboration History is accessed from the context menu. This is a window that lists all the exchanges you've had with a person. The list could contain e-mails, meetings, and chats.
Picking this menu item gives you a list like this:
We have received feedback that users are getting these two featuresconfused. So we're considering changing the term "Recent Contacts" to"Top Contacts." (Like a Myspace Top Eight)
We're also entertaining newterms for "Collaboration History" ( "Recent Collaborations" is oneyou might already seen in earlier builds).
Please let us know what you think.
