Add Pomodoro timer that toggles status automatically
Add a Pomodoro functionality/timer that will automatically toggle your status between 'Do Not Disturb' and 'Active'. Give a notification when the pomodoro session completes. Make the focus time period customisable.
Consider adding a new 'Focus' status instead of 'Do Not Disturb'. 'Do Not Disturb' sounds very negative and is perceived as 'Go Away!'. A 'Focus' status will be perceived as 'Just focussing on something exclusively for a bit, but leave a message and I'll get back to you shortly'.

It would be great if this can be paired with a "Can we chat" feature, so that other team members can let you know if they need your attention, without disturbing you while you are busy with focused work.

I agree with this also!

Excellent idea! Agree on idea of "Focused" status and maybe additional "Unavailable" status instead of DND
