Bring Back Statuses Like Away and Busy for Xbox Live Activity
I liked being able to put my status to Away or Busy on the Xbox 360... If I needed to do something in real life, I could put my status to Away or Busy...
But with the way the Xbox One is at the moment, I can only put my status to online or appearing offline*...
*(Skype for Xbox One also only online or appearing offline, it should also get Away and Busy status settings)
[Mod Edit: This idea was merged with a similar idea posted by DoubleDRAGON666. Thanks everyone!]
Away would be great to add
my suggestion status: AWAY FROM CONTROLLER
I'm so suprised this isn't on the XB1 yet... It's such a small thing, but having the ability to know when your friend is "away," for instance, can be very useful.

I made posted a idea like this when uservoice first launched and this ability still has not be done. It makes so much sense
I don't understand why this hasn't been done yet. We have everything under the sun but this. Away/busy statuses are needed.

Away would be great esp if you have kids your looking after too so you can deal with them while playing
The way that it worked on 360 was that it would say that you were "Away" if you turned off your controller or if your controller turned itself off from inactivity. If I go temporarily afk or to the bathroom, I turn off my controller to save it's battery, and on 360, I also did it to show that I was online, but afk for a bit.
Something that works like that would be awesome for the One as well. It also can be used to easily make the guess that your friend must have run out of batteries if they suddenly stop moving and talking if their controller shows that they are away when their controller disconnects.
