DO NOT DISTURB- DOESN'T WORK
Make the "Do Not Disturb" actually not disturb! I hate that I still receive notifications on my PC as well as on my phone when in DND. It doesn't even send a message to people that this person is unavailable so they can't send you a message.
It is really annoying. Please fix it
DND is still not working in TEAMS like it used to work in SFB..
DND not working for for me on laptop. It used to work in the past but not anymore. It's really annoying having to log out of Skype on laptop and phone to stop calls coming through in order to work uninterrupted. Please, please fix this. No point having the option if it doesn't work.
My status do not update properly. Once my PC is turned off, the status shows me as available as well as once I set up automatic replies and turn off PC my status is still online without showing automatic replies information. Please take care of it as it is very important.
With "Do Not Disturb" turned on using the Desktop version of Teams, it still flashes at me in the tray when a message comes in both from an individual chat and a team chat. This should be disabled except when the user is in my priority list (which is empty).

While I am working and on the phone I would love it that people, employee and coworkers can see this or get a notification I am buy or occupied shall we say. They could get busy signal or prompt telling them that I am busy and phone or email does doesn't go through with that message.
Agreed. This is both asinine and infuriating! I am a work-at-home entrepreneur. I have 3 instances of Skype running at any time, for different contracts I run. When I have meetings I literally have to shut my Skype(s) down and kill the process thru task manager, and restart once done!
DND (aka "do not disturb") worked beautifully for YEARS. Now? Freaking JOKE! It does NOT work across MULTIPLE devices! An absolute pathetic fail... we get that glitches happen! But to have THIS many complaints for THIS long??
For 1.5 years DND has not worked on my PC or laptop, on ALL 3 accounts! This is true for the web version, it is true for the app version... it does stop the "alerts" for messages, but NOT CALLS.
I can be in a Zoom meeting, which you have to often turn volume way up to hear people. Suddenly, a Skype call (or 2 or 3 or 4++)... and it about blows out your eardrums and makes you jump out of your skin!
I despise Microsoft and its developers for this lack of care, absolutely idiotic that this is still an issue when I pay for calling cards, phone #'s, "world" subscriptions for multiple acounts!
Please take care of this it is very important.
Please fix this... it is very annoying and there is no point in having DND if it doesn't actual stop notifications from coming through. It is a major oversight.

Please fix this... What in the world is the POINT of putting yourself on DND if people can still bother you and interrupt you all the time. This is BROKEN. Fix it.
It needs to get fixed urgently!!!! Lots of people work under tremendous pressure. It is vital to have the DND option working so we can focus on our work and guarantee a high quality deliver. Please,fix it with an auto-reply to chat messages. Soon, please!

Please fix this. A lot of our users wants it to work like it use be in skype for business. Block chats if in this status.
DND allows messages to still come through.
Please fix, an implementation similar to the one in Skype for Business would be great. So, where people can really no longer message you (except prio contacts defined by oneself).
At the moment, I still get the icon indicating I have new messages, even when focusing or dnd.
Do not disturb used to work, but no longer does after some update from MS Teams. Now, even in DND mode, my taskbar flashes even with focus assist turned on. It's extremely distracting, especially when I'm sharing screens in a call. I uninstalled the client because this feature is that annoying. The web version of Teams is not nearly as good, but I don't feel like I have any other choice.

This feature does not work as it's defined. Users are still getting message notification. Please resolve it soon.
