How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Change status to away when computer is locked

When I lock my computer, automatically change my status to away. I don't expect the web version to be able to do this but the client should be able to.

    As Eric stated below, there is a need for Teams to automatically change to an away status on computer lock. Working in a critical environment, it is often necessary to get ahold of technicans in the field. Not understanding who is actually available and waiting to see if anyone responds isn't ideal.

    If it in fact does not do this it really needs to. Presence is a critical part of the modern workplace.
