Automatically block incoming calls when you are already in a call or meeting
Please create a setting a user has the ability to change that automatically blocks incoming calls or allows the user to even forward all calls to someone else when already in a call/meeting if applicable. It is very distracting to have my phone ringing while I'm in a call.

Agree with so many other comments - why would this *not* be default behavior? Or at the very least a simple option to enable/disable.
We recently switched from Skype FB to Teams and I cannot stand these calls interrupting my meetings or other calls if I forget to set do not disturb. Microsoft please fix this ASAP. I cannot believe this is not standard. Skype handled this well. I'm appalled that this seems like a basic feature that you would put in and people have been asking for this for years. Busy on busy is a joke for a business and is basic home phone stuff. Please allow users to send calls straight to voicemail when busy.
How is this not the standard? If I'm in a meeting I do not expect, nor want to take any calls.

If you are already in a meeting calls should good to VM. Also the call should not ring on other devices running MS Teams (Cell Phone, Desktop).
Please block incoming calls when already busy on a call or in a meeting and allow system voice to say 'user is currently busy on a call/meeting please try again later' or allow for more than one voice message to be recorded so that Teams users can allocate different voice message like when busy on a call or busy in a meeting or will not be availaibe for 5 days etc. because it is disturbing to receive calls whilst I am busy in a business meeting. Please make this available for all OS and Mobile OS. Thank you.
It is very annoying if you held a presentation and the incoming call dirctly disturb the meeting and concentration is gone.
Please insert a function asap to avoid the interuption during meeting or call!!!
Interesting, bc this is active at my job. It goes directly to end the call when calling someone else already on a call. It doesn't even forward to VM. It just ends the call and says the person isn't available. It's as if Teams is totally closed. At least on a mobile phone, when the phone is off, it forwards you to VM. Not that way here. I found this thread as I was searching for an option to "forward to VM when on a call" "switch".
We really need you to bring this feature available.
Pls get this feature ASAP

The "Busy on Busy" was already released:
The "Voicemail on Busy" option is under review:
Comparable settings have been available for Skype for Business already, see PowerShell documentation:

Why bother even leaving a comment they don't even respond back how unprofessional good luck to them in the future I'll see a downfall
This is crucial to me
MS please update this, when in a call ==> then I don't want that I am redirected to the new call.
And when popup then I can't send direct message that Iám busy
Would be useful when already in a call, marked busy, do not disturb etc.
A standard phone system feature that is urgently needed
Very much "A MUST have" facility!
When you are in a call and get a second call on the phone, they should automatically get a signal that I'm in another call. When will this be fixed?

Very distracting having a call come through my headset whilst already on the phone and I have to keep ending it to be able to hear the customer I'm already on the phone to.
Need to be able to stop calls from appearing on my screen whilst I'm already on the phone.
When this functionnality will be available ?
I think most of the regular users are interested in.
This is really annoying
