I figured there had to be a an open issue on this problem by now, but I cannot find one.
I am running the latest production version of Spark, 2.6.3. I have had this issue where if I set a custom away status, it becomes my permanent Idle away status.
Set my Away status to something temporary, “Running to the bathroom, be back in 5!” (do NOT check “Save for future use”).
Come back to my desk, set myself back to Online.
Eventually leave for the day, or go away for several hours. Expect it to set me to Idle Away, or simply “Away”.
Come back to my desk hours later, or the morning after, and my Away status has reverted to my custom message, “Running to the bathroom, be back in 5!”
Please tell me I am not alone on this? I had this issue for a year or so. I tried uninstalling, reinstalling. Also removing all my AppData for Spark. A few months ago I had to completely reload my workstation. I thought I clean install would do me good. But it came right back!
