Create Space by Changing your Skype for Business Status

If you want to be undisturbed or keep some free space in your day without calls, set your “Status” in Skype for Business to Busy or Away. If someone tries to call you or email you, the status you have selected will display to them.

1. Hold your mouse over the Skype for Business icon on your Taskbar. A mini-panel displays, showing the various Status options you can select.
