Editors' Review

Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 is an official add-on from Microsoft that is designed to allow better collaboration and communications between several individuals. At the core, Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 contains an IM and voice call component, with the ability to share desktops and videos between participants. Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 downloads and installs seamlessly.

Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 integrates with Office tightly and adds to the ways you can share documents, spreadsheets, presentations and other files with others. Sharing is configurable down to the individual user level, so not everyone on a call will have the same permissions, for example. Also, there's a presence indicator that shows you who is available and what their status is. If someone makes a change to a shared file, that status change shows immediately. At its heart are the IM and call modules, which allow for audio or video calls and messaging between any number of people. You can share your desktop easily, which is a very handy feature. We tried Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 with sharing in a smallish group (up to 20 people), but we could not try it in larger Enterprise environments, so we can't comment on the scalability and stability with hundreds of people participating.

If you are a Microsoft Office user and you share documents with others collaboratively, Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 is a tool you will love. Instead of relying on separate messaging and call tools, a desktop sharing tool, and others apps for collaboration markups, you can now use Office and its familiar interface.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 2.0.6362.
