When you leave your desk, for whatever reason, it would be great to have a way of leaving a message for anybody who arrives at your desk only to discover you are not there. This has inspired the Passing Notes application to run on the IP phone’s APM. The idea behind this is that rather than scribbling a message on a piece of paper which could get lost on your desk or removed by a passer-by, use the IP Phone display unit to show a message detailing why you are away from your desk and give them the option to leave a name, number and message to view when you return.
