Auto-reply based on status similar to, or integrated with, outlook
Please add the ability to manage an auto reply based on status to alert others that you are away or set to do not disturb.
similar things for comparison:
-In outlook you can control auto replies
-in outlook if you are emailing someone with an auto-reply enabled, it alerts you that you are sending a message to someone who is away

The visibility of the outlook auto reply message was there in S4B it should have been included for Teams as well. This is something our folks are greatly missing as we rely on the Outlook Auto Replies to tell us when someone will be back in the office. And the suggestion on one of the Microsoft Support pages to use the status message in Teams is ridiculous - we should not have to set it twice. Outlook is still a heavily used tool in most businesses.
I'm dumbfounded at how few votes this has -after 2 years- when it is such an important feature!!!
It is horrible that the only auto-reply option that we have is the out of office.
What about fast auto replies like a bot to know that I'm out for lunch or in an important meeting as this has only 3 colors to define the status of anyone and not everyone stops to actually read what we set in the status description.
We have less than a week using teams and the communication issues are everywhere!
Why isn't this an embed feature yet?
