  3. Status not maintained in MS Teams

    The status is not maintained in the MS Teams. If I choose my status to be Do not disturt, it automatically changes to be Online or Away. And most of the time I have to struggle to change my status change in effect.

    Also, we have noticed that our Teams statuses are consistently incorrect. Even when some team members are active in Teams they are shown as "away" or "offline". For example, although I can see that my status is "active", my colleagues see my status as "offline".

    Can you please fix these bugs?

  4. The status feature behavior is very unstable

    My team mates and I try to change our status regularly manually. It does not work 90% of the time.

    When we select a status and try to make the change, the status stays the same.

  6. Mobile & Desktop Status Synching

    When I change my Active/Away status on my phone, I expect it to update my desktop status with the same thing, immediately. Or vice versa...I update desktop, it SHOULD update my mobile app status too.
    I was using my mobile and tried to make contact with someone after a meeting. Only to get back to my desk and see they were actually Offline on desktop. But on my phone, they were showing as Available. Frustrating.
    They each need to update each other, quickly.

  8. Status

    It is really frustrating that my online status is constantly changing or not changing. It won't change when I click on it, then it will change in the background when I am working on different things. It's just all over the place.

  9. Update User Status

    User Status is extremely slow to update. It is 7:30 am and the last programmer to leave last night around 5:00 pm is still shown as active even though he is not met.

    The user status is very helpful because it tells you if you can expect immediate response. I find myself double checking with Skype for Business when I need to know if someone is available or not.

  10. status goes away when teams is minimised

    Teams status changes to yellow (busy) when Teams is not the active window.

    For example, if I'm in a web browser, the teams app changes status to Yellow (busy).

  13. status doesn't work

    When I change status from one to the other, it doesn't take! It just ignores the change. 1 out of every 5 tries, it will work. Please repair!

  16. Status color icon update is very delayed

    The status color icon of contacts do not update until you try to communicate with the contact. Its very delayed and slow to update status. It shows contacts in meetings when the meetings have long ended already. It shows me as being in a meeting when I'm no longer in a meeting, etc.

  20. Automatic status for meetings not correct

    A meeting was accepted for 10am, it was later amended to start at a different time and date. However teams changed my status to in a meeting at the original time.
