Microsoft Teams users will soon be able to set individual “Show As” statuses to meetings. Currently the default “Show As” value for all the meetings an organizer creates is “Busy“. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93145.

Organizers of a Teams meeting and participants will be able to choose a Calendar Show As status feature such as free, busy or OOF to reflect their status for the scheduled meeting. In addition, organizers will also be able to select private meeting functionality which will allow users to hide meeting details from other users when their calendar is shared.

When this will happen

We expect to begin rolling this out in late April and expect the rollout to be completed by late September (previously late August).

How this will affect your organization

As an organizer, while creating the meeting in the action bar you can choose to set Show As status of the meeting, when the participants RSVP, this status will automatically reflect for the meeting for them. You can also create private meetings and appointments for one-self and with participants using Show As.

As a participant, you can choose to set your individual status of the meeting through Show As independent of status set by RSVP. The updated status will reflect on your calendar.

Note: No impact for admin users.
