Just keep it as "away" consistently.

@EY4 it stays "away" when you're away, and once you come back it shows "busy" rather than "available"

You can change the timer so that Skype times out after 90minutes instead of 5 when it's idle.

Your friend can ask for himself

Yea actually. Just download the app. Works decently.

Appear offline or away consistently for a while.

If you move any contacts into the "external contacts" folder, those contacts will not be able to see how much time you've been away/offline.

Why would you do that to yourself?

Then no one will question it when they see it. Fairly simple. Sorry for the two posts

I've tried to figure it out when I want to do stuff around the house when unassigned - don't think there's a way though :/

I think if you set it to Busy it will stay that way even if you're away. Can someone confirm?

Change the timer on skype from 5 min to the longest possible amount. Also update the settings on your laptop so it does not go to sleep, ever. Not even when you close it. Yeah I spent some time unassigned earlier this year..

How do you deal with all of the constant pings? I need some focus time to write emails & create campaigns but my entire team tends to be “on call” with Slack all day and it’s making me crazy. I want to bring this up to the rest of the executive team because we are overboard with the constant notifications and questions/comments that don’t really need to be in slack.

In 2020 I was diagnosed with epilepsy. I have a number of seizures a day but don’t knowwhen I’m having them (EEG detected it). I started on meds and am feeling much better, however the only way to know if meds are 100% working is to go to hospital for 3 day EEG. I’m supposed to try to live my daily life as much as possible during EEG so I need to work. But can’t do zoom calls. I hadn’t planned on disclosing my diagnosis to my boss but now feel like I’m backed in a corner here. (Cont in comments)

In a meeting I said, “creatives can be savages sometime.” because of their unruly behavior towards internal teams, pushing deadlines, or throwing tantrums.

Am I the asshole?
