Hi,

 

Some users would like to be able to add external users to their Teams Contact list but won't do so if the external users are aware of their current User Presence / Availability status. 

 

Is there a way to configure/handle this?

If you mean external chat you cannot control this. It’s pretty much on or off and you have some ability to restrict and block certain domains but if you have it enabled they will be able to see basic presence for you if they try to reach you via external chat.

@Chris Webb i have the same question can you reference any MS documentation confirming this?
