Allow user to block specific contacts while being able to stay Online for others.
Some users may need to be available for quick chat contact through Teams to other members of the team, but other users in the organization may take advantage of their online presence to bypass regular communication channels. Specifically, helpdesk support person needs a service ticket submitted before assisting someone, but must be available in Teams for consultation with other IT staff.

Despite the large amount of people resquesting for that feature ... it's easy to remark that Skype for Business (ex Lync) used to offer that option.
Skype -> Teams, and option disapeared.

My company use teams but after having online meetings with external contacts they can now see when I am "available".
Due to the inability to block my presence they feel free to contact me and other members of my company whenever they feel to discuss an item which would before have been formally asked via email or RFI. This means workloads have become chaotic, and planning work is almost impossible.
As some of these people are valuable clients we have been put in an uncomfortable position with this feature.
Surely it should be a no brainer to allow external people to be blocked from viewing this.
How on earth is this STILL not implemented?!
This feature needs to be implemented asap!!!!
There are anoying people who always message me please enable blocking
Microsoft Teams users need to be able to block people and chats, period.
It is really unfortunate that almost all other forms of online communication have a block button or function, and yet Microsoft Teams doesn't have this. Universities, organizations, and individuals are so dependent on Microsoft Teams during the pandemic, especially due to lockdown regulations. It puts everyone in an unsafe position as it is now easier than ever to be harassed, abused, and disrespected online. The block button is a necessity for people to feel safe and respected on this platform.
Please put a block button (and make it as easy as possible for people to find and use), and I can ensure you that many people will be very happy with this change.
