Also, if you have an important deadline, you can also change your presence status to Do Not Disturb to control interruptions.

You look at her status in your Contact List and see that the contact is available.
Once you have done so, the note can take as long as 30 minutes to propagate through the Presence system.
In addition, you must be running the Communicator client on a device that can connect to Exchange in order for this information to propagate.
Presence information helps you to contact others and helps others to reach you.
