Set Users Status on their behalf

It would be nice to be able to set a users status remotely to DND if they are away from their desk or out of office.

    Use case is user has set DND on physical phone or on app and admins don't have a way to make the status not be set to DND. We had a user set DND on their physical phone and we had no way to turn it off until the user returned home from vacation and wanted to get calls on the app while OoO.

    We do not permit our users to manage their own extensions, since they are "positions" and not tied to a single person. Our branch sites are required to have DND disabled for almost all users, but in the event someone figures out a way to set themselves to DND (or anything besides available) we need a way to quickly resolve this without having to log in as the user.

    This happens in our org all the time. A user forgets to change their status and is gone, and our inbound call team spends their and our clients' time trying to reach that user multiple times before realizing they are not there.

    It would be ideal in our use case if this was a permission in the MVP app where permitted users could adjust other team members' DND/Available status with a right click context menu. Logging in to the back end is cumbersome.

    If this is Implemented, then how can we as Admins change users presence and
    status, outside of Call Queues? This Idea is separate from the Call Queue

    YES! We have people go out of office and they don't update their presence to reflect this. We also have people forget to set themselves to DND and are away from their PC (out of state). We need the ability to set this as Admins.

    Have you seen our Presence API? This has the ability to set a person's status to DND. Here is an example request pulled from our API Reference (link below):

    PATCH /restapi/v1.0/account/~/extension/9234829/unified-presence

    "glip": {
    "visibility": "Visible",
    "availability": "DND"
    "telephony": {

Allow Admins to set other users to DND

If there is an admin of a group and one of the users walks away and forgets to put DND there should be a way for the admin of the group or any admin to go in and set them to DND. The way our system is set up it will deem them the most inactive and...
