Definitely still need "off work" (still missing even though it was in S4B), and "working remotely" would be nice to have as well (as others have said, this is more important now with so many people working from home).
Also the ability to add a custom status (possibly w/ a short custom message/description) would be great to cover scenarios that don't fit any of the built-in statuses.
What is the status of this request? Originally made almost 4 years ago, with the latest admin response 2 years ago and almost 5K votes... another update would be appreciated.
Finally I will throw one more idea out there (or add my vote to anyone who has suggested it already) - the ability to integrate with Outlook working hours to automatically change "available" to "off work" at the end of working hours for the day. Maybe have this as an option the user can turn on/off in their settings. Then if the user still wants to show as available after hours they can set the "available" status manually (if its just once in a while) or disable the feature altogether (if they never want working hours to switch their status). Once the user is no longer available, other statuses would kick in like normal (e.g. they lock their machine and it switches to "away", etc.). That would be great for people who are still online past work hours for one reason or another (e.g. working late on urgent tasks, doing additional research on their own time, etc.) to let others know that they aren't really "available", so they don't get pinged with additional requests after hours that should be sent through other channels (since that tends to happen if people still see them online)...
