As soon as I start Teams I put my status to not available. Please make it possible to define that as my default status so that I don't need to put it to not available every day and every time I re-start the system. Thanks in advance.
I hate that any time I open Teams, I am shown as "available".
I am not! I am usually busy doing other stuff, just checking Teams in between.
(Same goes for Skype for Business: Just because I check or reply to messages does not mean I am suddenly "available"). I want my status remain what I set it to (busy, away, or maybe even "show as offline").
There should be an option to set default availabilty (on start-up, on getting focus) to a fixed value or to "just leave it as it was".

As for all settings, this should be configurable globally, per-channel and per-user.
So, for example, you can be generally not available, except on the "Emergencies" channel or if the CEO wants you.
