Dear Community!


How can we disable "Status of" as a worker, if someone post a status? If I change from "Teams" to "Chats" i see it always, even if I "x" it before and close it.


It´s very interrupting, if I still see it, when I want to type a message.




Thanks and Kind Regards,


Hi @Tobis 


Have the user remove the status message in their Teams client under Menu (with photo) > Set Status Message > Uncheck show when people message me. You can also do this via the mobile app. 


AFAIK you can't do this administratively, I.e. via the Teams Admin Centre




Hope that answers your question!


Best, Chris

Thanks for suggestion.


Right now I´m more focus in how I can disable it from my profil to see other status messages, instead of inform such people to remove it.


May we can find another way.

Hi @Tobis

Unfortunately, no way to do this currently. If you would like to see this feature - an option to disable this in your client so you no longer see status messages of users, then I would recommend to raise a uservoice here

Hope that answers your question

Best, Chris
