Changes to Jabber

Effective Date: April 25, 2016

In order to use our resources more effectively, we will make some changes to the Jabber configuration on some College-owned computers over the summer months. You will receive an email notification if this change effects you.

Impact on College Community

You will be able to use Jabber to:

  • Look up phone numbers for people in the Wheaton College directory
  • Initiate calls to people in the Wheaton College directory
  • See the status (available, on a call, etc.) of your contacts
  • Check voicemail

You will no longer have the option to place phone calls using your computer's microphone and speakers. All phone calls you initiate using Jabber will be routed through your desk phone. If your job requires you to place phone calls using your computer's speakers and microphone, please contact us and we will re-enable this feature for you.

If you have any questions, please contact us or call 630.752.4357 (HELP).
