Incorrect status in teams
We have noticed that our Teams statuses are consistently incorrect. Even when some team members are active in Teams they are shown as "away" or "offline". For example, although I can see that my status is "active", my colleagues see my status as "offline".
Can you please fix this bug?
Hi — My apologies for the delay in updating this item. We rolled out a fix a year ago for a specific issue of status changing to away in Teams when you were still active on the device. We thought this had fixed the “incorrect status” issue. From comments below, it sounds like people are still seeing issues.
If you are still having issues, 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 device info and detailed repro steps to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Not sure if it's the same issue, but it's around status too.
What we notice is that even when we are on our device (computer), Teams show us as 'offline' unless we go and maximize the window then our status will switch to online.
Same issue here. Some users in the company are affected (about 10%). Their status is away or offline even if they’re online and they see their status online.
Please fix this asap
I've noticed its about a one minute delay between activity in Teams and what shows in the status area.
One thing that would be nice is being able to change the time delay between the status and actual activity on Teams if that is at all possible.
I'm also involved in this issue. Any update?
Any updates in the incorrect status?
Same Issue. I appear away to my colleagues
Same issue. Shows someone as away as I'm messaging with them.
Same Problem. Incorrect Status sometimes.
Same Issue - My Team Status is displaying out office and I cannot change it to any other status. My colleagues think I'm on a very long holiday. :)
Nov. 11, 2019, this is always a problem for us, still. Would also be REALLY NICE to be able to have a setting where you can change the "time out" MUCH longer than just 5 minutes when Teams automatically changes your status from available to Away. Nobody wants to click on the Teams app every 5 minutes just to maintain available status.

Still not working. At least 30 or more minute delay. If at all.

Teams used to say "In a Meeting" (on a Mac) but now it no longer does. It's NEVER worked on S4B on the Mac. I was excited to see Teams working but now it's not LOL
Still not working, oddly enough Skype works just fine. any ETA on when this may be fixed and if anyone is working on it?

I set up an out of office in my desktop outlook but it is not updating teams to out of office

I show on both desktop and mobile as "Available, Out of Office" but I can't change them or reset them. Very frustrating!
I changed my OOO status yesterday in Outlook, which automatically updates my Teams status. This is fine. However, today after turning off my OOO status in Outlook, Teams status is unchanged and I cannot get rid of the message (see capture.) I have tried numerous times to change my status, signed out of Outlook and Teams, rebooted my computer, etc. etc. to no avail. Please advise.
Status updates for flagged team members don't show unless I click on teams and bring it to the foreground on Mac. It is running minimized but without fail, it doesn't show any updates unless I click it. I am constantly wondering if it is losing connection and showing me offline. There should be a self status check app so I can see if it shows me online since others say I show offline or away while I'm using the computer.

Bug is still present as mentioned by others. Colleague had to restart Teams on the desktop before my status was shown correctly. We are both having the latest versions on our desktops.
