Different icon for task bar notification
Right now the task bar icon shows a little red dot when you are busy or if you have a notification. I propose that it should show an circle with an exclamation mark for a notification, and a plain red dot when you are busy.
Sometimes I get out of meetings early and I'm confused why the task bar icon tells me I have notifications when I'm really still marked as busy and it's really annoying
Totally agree, this has annoyed me ever since using Teams.

+1 for this feature. I find it distracting and confusing to think I have new messages when I really just have a busy status. In my opinion there should be different icons for status and notifications and displaying the status should be a property setting.
Agree, I came here to request this feature, glad I'm not the only one!

Status should not show at all in the task bar icon. It's just noise.

This quite annoying and what is surprising is that no body else seems to have considered this as something that needs to be fixed.

Yes, this is super annoying!
I depend on the color of those 40-odd little pixels to keep on top of things that my team needs from me throughout the day (notification toasts are too transient for that purpose), and if it's just reflecting that I have a meeting going on that does absolutely nothing for me.
