M365 Changelog: (Updated) Show As now available in Teams Meetings

Rabia Noureen


MC364307 – Updated September 2, 2022: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

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.

When this will happen:

Microsoft expects to begin rolling this out in late April and expects 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.
