Presence Status in Tray Icon
Have an indicator on the Teams taskbar icon and tray icon that indicates your current status
@Kivi I agree with your concern -- you can up-vote the opposite suggestion: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/34727641-remove-status-icon-in-windows
Ideally this would just be an option that can be enabled or disabled from settings.

Can I downvote this? I want my taskbar and tray icons as minimal as possible. When I see a badge on an icon, I take it as a notification of new content.
It looks to me like this is implemented, with the status showing in the lower right corner of the system tray icon.

I just started to use Team and see a little green circle in a Teams tray icon. After using Slack \ Stride \ Telegram it looks to me too much like a notification of new messages.
Having notifications indicator in a tray icon (https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/20311222-system-tray-icon) might be more helpful.

Working to move an organization from OCS (yes Microsoft Office Communicator, like from ages ago) to Teams. This is one of the things that OCS does that is still missing in Teams.
