Project Description
SharePoint 2007 WebPart showing user's skype status.


Details

The first inspiration for this project was the codeplex project : http://skypestatusfield.codeplex.com/
What we've done is the possibility to add skype status in a webpart not only in a site column.
The MOSS version is very useful to be placed in MyProfile site (Profile.aspx page).

The WebPart can be used in multiple places:
  • Standalone WebPart
- skype account is read from the web part property
  • in Profile.aspx page (MyProfile next to MySite)
- web part will detect the current user and then will read the "Skype account" property from user profile. "Skype account" property must be created first in SharedServices and then each user must fill in the skype account + allow skype web presence.
