Monthly Tip & Trick:
Change your status in Microsoft Teams 

If you want to make sure people know when you’re busy or away  from your desk, set your status in Teams. The little dot on your profile indicates if you’re available or not. Teams will automatically set the status in some cases, like when you’re in a call. To explicitly set it yourself, go to your profile at the top of Teams and select one from the list.
