[edit] Skype Integration to Project.net

Integrating Skype into Project.net enables the project teammates to see whether a Project.net user is logged into Skype, even if that person is not logged into Project.net. Whenever you see someone's name in Project.net you will also see his or her Skype status. Members logged into Skype will also be able to initiate a Skype chat session with that person by choosing his or her Skype icon.

There are two things that needs to be done to configure Skype in order to view Skype status in Project.net: each Skype user must adjust his or her Skype privacy settings and each person must enter his or her Skype ID into their Project.net profile.
