Link PIM to Awareness

Currently online awareness soft doesn't have detailed automatically online status setting. Idea is link to PIM soft like Lotus Notes, pull schedule information and set online status in online awareness soft.

ex. User A has meeting 13:00 - 14:00 at meeting room 1. Notes Calendar has meeting entry. when 13:00, User A's Sametime rise up new online status with "Meeting 13:00 - 14:00 at meeting room 1" mouse over message.

Information pull using API or HTTP method.

Online awareness soft pull schedule from any PIM tools via API/VBA/Lotus script/HTTP method/some thing else. (if the PIM tool has interface) Online awareness soft not set a limit to Sametime. (any online awareness soft has potential to this function)

Security function may implement calendar tool has access right or private property, or online awareness tool has who can see me setting.
