Override System Status Setting: Remove Automatic Idle Mode
Now that I work from home the majority of my time I'm available but if I step away for a bit to attend some other things it goes to Idle mode to quickly. I like to be available all day unless I have a meeting of course then it can change to busy in a meeting. Otherwise, why does it change to Away when I'm still available? I like how Skype for Business has the option to set your presence regardless of what the system settings are and we can adjust the time to change our presence if we want. This is very important to me and many others because if are working on something else, why should we worry about our status changing? I want to be seen as Available all the time regardless of my computer being idle. This allows everyone to know I'm available to get messages from anyone who needs me to respond and I can reply even if I'm working on something else because I also get notifications on my phone if I'm not by computer in that moment but I'm still available.Teams! Please copy over these features from Skype for Business!

This thread said the same thing, had more comments and likes, and they have said they've completed it but it doesn't look like it has been from the info the admin shared. Comments are now closed as they claim it has been completed. Very frustrating!
