Any tips on how to regain the drop-down option in MS Teams for status, to include the "Away" option? My Away option slipped away in the night a few months back and has not returned. This leaves only the Appear Away or the Be Right Back option. Neither of those suffice when you are actually out of the office for the night or for an afternoon.
If you stay idle and are away it sets status to away automatically. If you want to show out of office you can set an out of office meeting in your calendar that is marked as out of office and Teams will pick this up and change your status as such. You can also set your automatic replies in outlook to set out of office for extended periods.
