Teams displays Status as 'Available' but OOO?

Copper Contributor

Hi there

Teams displays me as available but OOO despite me having time blocked out in my calendar AND it being outside of my working hours. This causes issues because my international colleagues keep thinking that I am available when I am not. Why does Teams not recognise the the blocked out time in my diary and represent it as a red dot - like it does when you are in a meeting?
Showing available is misleading. I shoulnd't have to manually set my teams status to Do not disturb manually.

Technically, those are two different statuses, as detailed for example here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/presence-admins

Thank you for the response, the table was very handy. I have now changed my personal time to 'busy' instead of OOO and this appears to be a short term rectification that wil stop people bothering me in my personal time despite showing as a meeting in my calendar. I will still make a feedback request regardless.
