Do Not Distrub in Teams for when OOO

In Teams, it looks like when you're ooo (plane icon) you cannot set a different status. When ooo, you still get messages and notifications. For example, in Skype you could be ooo and set yourself to DND at the same time. Can this be added to future roadmap?

    I'd like for the OOO status to follow my quiet hours settings. Right now if I'm OOO, I'll start getting IMs in the evening when I'd never get them while I'm not on vacation! If OOO status follows my quiet hours settings, then I can set my quiet hours to be all day, every day, until I get back from vacation if I need to.

    I'd like Scott Lerner's comment to be part of this update as I agree. We have a team that uses auto-replies but they are actively working. I see the use case to have automatic replies automatically update your presence. A manual override option would clear up that confusion without requiring a change in the default behavior of the plane icon.

    I would want to be able to override the automatic OOO sent from my mail client/server. There are times I use automatic replies when I know I will have delayed email responses. Unfortunately, when this shows up as the plane icon in Teams it confuses people and they think I'm OOO, not just busy. I can set a status, but the plane still shows up and I'd like to have that not show up if I'm in the office and just busy.

    i would recommend this tie in automatically from Microsoft outlook so you do not have to set this multiple places.

    Hi, You can already do this. There is Avalibility (DND up to 24 hours) and Status (Travel, Homeoffice, lunch...)
