Are you able to set presence status on Outlook or Teams for only internal domain users only and not have external users able to see your presence? If this is possible how and is the settings for whole organization or possible for individuals settings?

User only wants to be able to show their status for internal company users and not external ones and not without blocking them on outlook such as:

Could not seem to find anything that sets this.

    Hi @MohammadKartono-1988 ,

    As Thomas said, you could block the domain of your external contacts. But that will also block all communication with them, you will not be able to search for them, chat and meeting with them.

    If you want to show your presence only for people in your contact list, you could run the following command:
    Get-CsPrivacyConfiguration | Set-CsPrivacyConfiguration -EnablePrivacyMode $True

    And also, you could vote on this idea in UserVoice. Some new features would be added to the services based on customers' feedback in the future, and your good ideas will be very helpful for them to improve the service.

    Best regards,
    Lou

    Thank you for the answer.

    I would say this is an advance privacy mode in this case.

    So the person would be in the contact list, however the goal is to be able to differentiate external contacts from seeing the current presence whilst allowing internal organization or domain contacts to still normally see their presence eg. can email the person etc but do not want the person to see their presence.

    From the description though you are saying that the current features would only allow "Privacy Mode" which would still show contacts your presence. Which means not possible. Can you also confirm that this "Privace Mode" would be set for the global settings or would it be possible for individual users Microsoft Teams?

    The presence status in Microsoft Teams cannot be filtered.
    You can try to restrict using the allow/block domain list in Teams Admin Center, controlling the communication.

    Do you want to block presence status only, but still allowing communication with remote domains?

    @MohammadKartono-1988
    I have not tried this functionality with Microsoft Teams. The cmdlet for setting the global configuration is available in the MicrosoftTeams PowerShell module, but the documentation refers mostly to on-premises Skype for Business and Lync deployments.
    The New-CsPrivacyConfiguration ist not available in the cloud service.
