Change your Microsoft Teams Status (Presence)

Presence is part of a user's profile in Microsoft Teams (and throughout Microsoft 365 or Office 365) that indicates the user's current availability and status to other users. Anyone can see (in nearly real time) if other users are available online, since the status updates automatically based on your activity.


You can find more information about Presence here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/presence-admins
