Hi — My apologies for the delay in updating this item. We rolled out a fix a year ago for a specific issue of status changing to away in Teams when you were still active on the device. We thought this had fixed the “incorrect status” issue. From comments below, it sounds like people are still seeing issues.
If you are still having issues, it would be super helpful if you can capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with device info and detailed repro steps to email@example.com.
I am using OSX 10.12.5. Status reports as away even when actively using the desktop. If you need logs, please specify for OSX.
Yes, this is super annoying. Why would an app show you as away just because you haven't used that app recently!
Also, this should be configurable.
This request is still queued within our backlog. No new details yet.
Why would the app set me to Away just because I haven't used that app in a while, I'm still logged in and actively using other apps! Please set to Away only when actually not using the desktop, and immediately upon switching user, screensaver etc.
