Away Status timer
Skype for Business has an option that allows you to change the amount of time that elapses before your status changes to “Away”. This is a great feature.
Microsoft Teams status changes to "Away" after 5 minutes unless you are actively using the program. This status can make employees appear "Away" even though they are simply working within a different application and running Teams in the background does not help. As mentioned, this is a great feature provided in Skype. With many companies moving to teams, its necessary to revisit how teams works for the individuals.
This is a known frustration with users. Does Microsoft plan to add update this feature anytime in the foreseeable future? So far Microsoft has only offered workarounds, which are not adequate nor do they meet the customers' expectations.
