    Admin response

    Thank you for the feedback. Adding this admin control is a future consideration. If this is pressing for your org please reach out to your account manager to get in touch with the presence PM to discuss possible solutions that are already available.

    please note that an org's CSM can make a request for this by org. However, we do see the need to add in Control Hub for the org to self manage.

    we would like to have the possibility to manage the status for an admin to set the default setting. That means we want to hide the status by default and users are able to share their status if they want...

    This feature has been moved in newer version of Webex (Teams) App. It is now under General > Privacy. We would also like the ability to restrict users from hiding their availability.
