Different color for different status
Is there a way where the color status of users can be changed? i.e. I see the color of a person's status as Green when Available but I see it Red when Busy, in a Call or in a Meeting. Because of this we mistakenly end up calling the person while the other person is in another call already. This is obviously annoying for the recipient of the call.
It would be good to have different colors for different activity. May be Orange color when a person is in another call or something like that. This will help other user to accidentally not call the person and can know about the person's current status without hovering the mouse over the user's profile picture.

I agree! I have had people (like my manager) express confusion that it looks like I'm in a lot of meetings (red), when I'm really just set to busy. Busy and meetings/calls (calls being, to me, a type of meeting) should be assigned separate colors. Orange could be used for busy and red for meetings/calls (one step closer to the "do not disturb" colors). I'm not sure it's a good idea to allow people to customize their own colors, though, since people will still have to hover over the color to see what it means.
