My status always appears as "Away" when I use New Outlook.
Make status work as intended, and as it does on Old Outlook
I'm always set to Appear Away, even when manually changing back to Available, it immediately goes back to Away. Very frustrating.

Same issue, been happening for a while now being it's November and below reports that it started in August.
Always great to have a communications app that does not communicate properly
There is a bug since August when Skype For Business via browser UI changed. Now, no matter what you do or are doing, the Skype Status goes to away in 10 minutes, and you can't change it to anything else. you have to log out of IM and back in is the only way, and then problem repeats. This only started happening since August UI change in OutLook browser. IE and Chrome reproduced.
BUG: online state is stuck at "Appear Away"
When I change it to "Available" the state immediately changes back to "Appear Away".
After the first few minutes logging into email, The "appear away" status icon stays on no matter if you are working on email after that--there is no way to make it stay green/available once it turns to "appear away" (this never happened on the older version of Outlook.)
Yep, same issue here.
