Add the status for "Off work."
The "off work" status was available in Skype for Business. This helps a leader identify which team members are temporarily out of office - "Away" status vs. which are gone for the day "Off work."
I'm trying to figure out what would prompt Microsoft from removing the Off Work status. How will others know that I will not be available until the next day? This is a downgrade from Skype.

This is a very important feature. Especially when you work in a cross time zone team. People just don't know you are off work but randomly browsing messages through the phone. They thought hey, your status shows green. You must be able to talk. Then eventually most of the people in the team changed their status to away forever, even in the day. That's ridiculous.
Off Work or out of office hours Status should be implemented in the MS teams

This used to be available in the Teams mobile client for iOS, but not on the desktop, then instead of adding it to the desktop client, they removed it from the mobile client!!??? Why? This was a very useful presence option, as sometimes on the weekend I want to go online to do something, and I don't like this "appear away" option, but at the same time don't want to appear as I'm available for general work.

This is extremely important for us since a majority of employees are shift workers.
