There are two ways to manually update your status:
- Right-click on your avatar and select Update status
- Use a predefined hotkey combination to update status (by default: alt+s)
Next, from the update screen, click the status drop-down menu to set your status state.
Select one of the four status states: Available, Away, Busy, or Do Not Disturb.
Use the status message field to enter a detailed status message (up to 64 characters) and then click <Return> or SET STATUS to save it.
Your updated status state and detailed message will be displayed whenever anyone hovers their cursor over your avatar on the map or in the People pane.
|Tip: As a team, establish norms for everyone to follow for setting status.
Whenever you step away from your desk for brief few minutes (such as a bio break), set your status to Away. If you are going to be away for an extended period of time during the work day (such as away for lunch), edit your status message to share the time when you will return.
