There should be more status options similar to other programs.
- Status change timeframe - (available to away after 10min,15min,30min,1hr)
- Allow no change in status from computer activity/inactivity
- Hide status aside from available or offline or away
Feel free to add more.

can we please just get customizable status just like slack?
Different companies have different requirements and it would be SO helpful to get a "homeoffice" status.

Also, when status is on "automatic mode", fix the "busy" status for meetings that were canceled or that the client is not actually participating.
Should be able to "lock" status until "Reset status" is selected, for any status option.

my status is showing available, out of offive when it should be available - please can someone advise how to change this?
It would be nice to customize a status and save it for everyday use (alongside Available, Busy, DND, etc.
It would be great for Status to have more options: default choices in the pick list, like 10min, 15min, 30min, etc., but also allow me to enter my own custom time period. This is especially critical now while working from home, when I am doing analysis or working ion another program it sets me to away....Also add a auto "presenting" when sharing your screen.
please fix this.
Skype was taken away from us, now we are obliged to use teams...
The behavior and settings options in skype were exemplary.
Teams shud fix the status issue. while I am working on some other app and typing it turns into away and that is a bug for sure. Please fix this.
I'd like the option to manually set my status to appear logged out
Please allow "away status" time frame to be set by user rather than automatically set by Teams app. Its absurd when I'm on a conference call using another app, and teams sets my status to "away" because I've been talking for more than the allotted time for Teams status threshold, even though I'm still available. Teams status settings needs to allow for override of the default "away" time limit.
Should also provide status indicators to Microsoft Outlook when drafting or reading emails. This was a function that Jabber provided but Microsoft Teams does not. Teams does sync up with our Outlook calendars appropriately, so we are able to see colleagues' status in Teams, but not the other way around.
I completely agree with everyone else. It is essential that users are able to control when the status setting times out and switches the status automatically.

This is a bug that desperately needs fixed.
Add my voice to the many you're hearing here. Allow me to set the time interval before my status changes to "Away".
Provide some default choices in the pick list, like 10min, 15min, 30min, etc., but also allow me to enter my own custom time period.
Finally, give the ability to permanently "pin" any particular status to my profile (such as always reading as available, even if there's been no activity on my computer for an hour)

Please add Lunch/breaks, meetings
Please add that this should sync more strongly with outlook so that it displays when someone is next available similar to features found in Skype.
Definitely agree that user should be able to control status. When I am at my desk and on the phone, status can change to Away. Doesn't accurately reflect my status. I should be able to control that.

Add status for lunch/break or customize ability
We need to be able to change the inactivity time on Teams. Its available on Skype, so why not on Teams. Previously when I changed my inactive time on Skype, the same was showing on Teams but in the past few months, its changed. It looks like my Skype settings doesn't even matter anymore because everything is synced to the Teams settings which literally shows I'm away only after a few minutes (which is sometimes just me thinking, and not touching the keyboard or mouse)

I'm amazed this doesn't have more votes because it's been a constant headache for me and my entire team. I feel like I can't get up for 60 seconds to refresh my coffee without my status setting itself to "Away." Believe it or not, I don't only work on my computer. I often physically assemble mail merges while I'm right next to my computer. My superiors will think I'm "Away" when I'm actually working very hard, just not on my computer. It will also set me to "Away" if I'm working in other applications. I don't do any actual work in Teams, except to chat with coworkers as we're all working remotely. It is absurd that I can't adjust the timer and that Teams can't recognize my activity unless it's physically in Teams. Even if I set my own status to "Busy" it will revert back to "Away" about a minute later. This is very frustrating and makes me wish our company hadn't switched away from Skype.
