Allow me to enter a location or activity in addition to selecting a 'status' like in Skype.
Ditto. With S4B I had my status set by whether I was working in the office or at home that day, which is helpful for coworkers trying to get a hold of me. It's a little thing but a loss after moving to Teams.

Our team works at different places all the time. It's valuable to easily know where the coworkers are.
