If you want to make sure people know when you’re busy or away from your desk, set your status in Teams. The little dot on your profile picture indicates if you’re available or not.
Teams will automatically set the availability status in some cases, like when you’re in a call. To explicitly set it yourself, click on your profile picture at the top of Teams and select one from the list.
You can also update your status from the command box. Type /available, /busy, /dnd, /brb, /away, or /offline to set your status as Available, Busy, Do not disturb, Be right back, Away, or Offline.
Here’s more detail about each kind of status that you change:
If you’d like to know when someone in Teams changes their status to Available or Offline, you can add them to your status notifications list either through a previous chat or in settings.
Note: You can add up to 15 people to your status notifications list.
After you add someone to your status notifications list, you’ll see a desktop notification banner at the bottom of your screen along with a notification in action center (if turned on in settings) whenever their status changes.
The chat option is convenient if you’ve recently had a one-on-one chat with the person that you want to get notifications about.
The settings option allows you to search for someone in your organization and then add them directly to your notifications list.
In the manage status notifications screen, type the name of the person that you want to be notified about in the Add people search box. Select their name when it appears.
To remove someone from your status notifications list, follow the previous steps and then select the Turn off button next to their name.
