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!]

    I wondered why this was not implemented in the first place, its always baffled me why xbox made the decision to let you know when your friends were 'Last on line' (i.e john was online 2 minute's ago) lol how does that help me, surely reversing that logic wouldn't it make more sense to know when your friends are coming online. So rant over, I agree more options for current status. Also Beacons from the 360, they were cool and handy too, to know what friends want to play what games

    Looks like this worked. Busy/Do Not Disturb status in Xbox Preview now!

    I totally agree with you there should be more choices then just online and offline. Also agree that they should have left a lot more of the features from the 360 when first launching the XBOX one.

    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.
