Your Status in Gather helps your coworkers know if you're free to chat, and also controls the spatial audio and video you'll hear from the office.
There are three Status modes you can enter:
- 🟢 Available: This means you're free to talk and can hear/see people around you.
- 🟡 Busy: This tells others that you're working on something, but can be available to talk if needed. You can set yourself as "Busy" for a set amount of time.
- 🔴 Do Not Disturb: This means you're unavailable for conversations in Gather, and you will not hear/see people around you.
An icon representing your Status can be seen above your avatar's head, when someone hovers over your desk, and from the Participants Panel.
Set Your Status Mode
To set yourself as Available, Busy, or on Do Not Disturb mode, click the Personal Menu from the bottom navigation.
Under your name, click your status and then choose the mode you want to be on. You can change this at any time.
Add a Custom Status
From the Personal Menu, you can also add a custom status to provide more details about your state of work.
Enter a text message and choose an emoji. This custom status will then appear with your name in the Participants Panel and when someone hovers over your desk.
