Status Sync - A usability concept

Status Sync is a neat concept, to improve telecommunication.
This function provides the possibility to syncronize the users current status with the phonebook. One sort of synchronisation is via the calender, where your phonestatus will be set to unavailable while in a meeting or having a date. Therefore the user is able to define a away message. To make sure Satus Sync is customizable, different phone groups can be created.

For example: By setting your status to "holiday" you will only be unavailable for work-related contacts.

After iterating through different use cases, a quick prototype for usertesting is drawn. Using Fraunhofer Institute's research facility for testing, helped to understand their behaviour using Status Sync.
