Microsoft Teams status changes

If your office door is closed, that’s normally a good hint for people not to bother you, but working remotely has made it harder for coworkers to know whether you are busy or not.
Managing Teams status settings allows others to know if you are away, available, busy, can’t be disturbed, or in a meeting. It is important to update your status so that you are not interrupted during a meeting, and it helps coworkers know when they can expect a response from you.

Change your status using these easy steps:

  1. Open Microsoft Teams
  2. Click your profile button in the top right corner
  3. Under your name, click the status menu

From there, you can choose among the statuses: available, busy, do not disturb, and away. Microsoft Teams also has the option to set a status message. Similarly to how you set a status, another option under your profile is set status message. From there, you can compose a status message and choose if you want to be notified when people message you. On the same pop-up, you are given the option to clear the message after a specified day or time.
