How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Do Not Disturb unexpectedly changes to Available

I set myself to "Do Not Disturb"
I send a message or a chat.
Teams decides I'm available, and changes me to "Available."
NO, DND means JUST THAT. Please STOP changing my availability!

Once your tenant is using UPS (unified presence service), you should no longer have issues where DND changes back to available.

If you are on UPS, and are experiencing this issue, it would be super helpful if you can capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with any details to teamsml@microsoft.com.

Thanks all!

    How can we proactively set Do Not Disturb hours? It's 9:15 p.m. and people are Teams calling me.

    Its funny I just spent an hour on the phone with support and they said they have never seen this issue.

    Apparently I am not the only one. Pathetic.

    Same. Still happening to me as of today. This is ridiculously stupid. Busy and DND status should never change on its own.

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Mine does the opposite. It changes without warning to DND, and then no one can reach me.

    Still happens for me on Mac. "You have Microsoft Teams Version 1.1.00.11551. It was last updated on 5/7/18."

    Any updates on this? This is working in skype for business, why isn't it working in Teams?
    This is basic functionality!!

    This application is a horrible, horrible joke- how hard is it to set something to DO NOT DISTURB?!

  • Jason commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Even with the latest status integrations/updates, this is still happening. I set both Skype (consumer) and Teams to DND when I went into a meeting, and when I checked Skype was still DND, even though I had opened it, while Teams was green again. It should never, ever go off DND unless it's scheduled or I manually change it. I thought this was being fixed as part of the S4B status integration - I would hardly call that complete until this is fixed.

    I can confirm Teams changes Status even when my account is logged in after it was Locked. Please fix it.

    ... and as I typed that it went to available as minimised!!

  • Anon commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This is the biggest joke about this awful application. Why should anything at all change your status from DND? DND literally means 'do not disturb me'! It will often just go back to available with just having the teams window open and no new messages etc. Minimising it seems to stave it off for longer.

    This happens to our entire team and is so frustrating many turn Teams off during meetings, etc. Which then is often forgotten and left turned off. Is this even being addressed as a bug? Or is this what is considered a feature to turn on automatically...? If so baed on what?

    While entering the issue here today, it reset me again. (3/29/2018). I will send logs from today. This is very frustrating as I need the same functionality that is in SfB.

    Having this problem today (3/27/18) while running Microsoft Teams Version 1.1.00.5963 (64-bit). It was last updated on 3/15/18. This is running on Windows 10 Enterprise version1607

    This is happening to me on Windows 8.1, no idea what version of Teams I have, but it should be up to date as of 14/03. I don't need any kind of network blip - I set myself to DND, and several seconds later the icon changes, and then changes back as soon as I touch the computer again. It's a basic feature, and a shame it simply doesn't work.
