    I see others have already mentioned the counter point to this... if you have this feature, you must also have a way to either disable other's ability to keep track of your status or to block specific people. Hadn't seen my harasser in years, and somehow saw him the day Teams was installed. Maybe it is coincidence, but I had blocked him on Lync/Skype back then because of mild (?) stalking behavior... So currently Teams allows him to get notifications when I'm available and at the office with no way to block him. Change this NOW!

    I do not agree with this feature. It could be abused (micromanaging, harassing/stalking behaviour).

    This feature is on Teams now and it needs to be removed. People can look at their status already and if they're not available, they can send an email. Other people do not need to be notified of my status. I can let them know when I'm available.

    Could be coincidence but literally saw my harasser (from years ago but still works within the organization) on the same day Teams was installed. Either let me block him (some suspected he was viewing our statuses online back then and had blocked him) OR remove the function that allows him to set up notifications to watch specific people's statuses (like mine)! OR BOTH. You made a really perfect platform for stalking activity at work.
    If the issue that someone is abusing it (like blocking their manager) that's a performance issue and could be addressed outside the platform. Harassment at work is a real issue that requires this feature.
