Stop auto setting my status to "in a meeting"
I tend to use my calendar to plan my time effectively. I schedule my day in advance and set each task as a "meeting" so I can plan when I am able to have actual meetings. However, because of this, my status is constantly changing to "in a meeting" can this be made an option in setting to auto change?

It's a simple tick box in Skype for business to break the link between Calendar Meetings and Skype for Business, I'm sure it can't be that hard for MS to achieve something similar in Teams
I don't personally need this feature but has anyone tried setting the appointment to Show As 'Free' instead of 'Busy'? Maybe Teams respects that and if not, maybe Teams should. I could see that feature being useful for me. My 2cents.

I decide when I'm busy, not Teams. I will be able to configure teams to respect my
calendar (or whatever) or not. I'll have the possibility to switch off this annoying
And I'll not be obligated to change my state again and again every time a meeting
ends earlies as defined in my calendar or if teams thinks that when I'm not chatting
I'm not available.
For me, this is Microsofts main problem. It thinks it knows what I'll do/have or not
(simply see MS-Word behaviour). But this is wrong in 99% of the cases and leads
at least to more work than doing it manually.

Another example of a "smart" feature that is useful in most circumstances, but completely undermines the utility of the product for some people.
All "smart" features like this must be optional - the developers cannot anticipate all the edge cases. By all means hide them in an "advanced settings" tab, but make them available.
