Microsoft Teams in work environment



We have MS Teams at work. A coworker (my boss) decided to add me on her notifications. She would go to MS Teams Settings > Notifications > People > adds my name. This way she can see when I come online/go offline etc etc. I have meetings with her and deal with her quite often through Teams. But the monitoring when I get online and offline can be too much. Is there a way to block this but still able to chat with her through Teams?

    Hi @Sam Cooley

    Could you please tell me:

    Is your coworker in the same organization as you?

    If so, I'm afraid you won't be able to prevent your coworker from adding you to the status change list.

    Presence sharing with everyone is always enabled for users in Teams.

    To get this feature more quickly, I have found a feedback in Teams UserVoice and you could vote for it. Many features of our current products are designed and upgraded based on customers' feedback. With requirements like this increase, the problem may well be released in the future. Thanks for your understanding and support.
