In our profiles we can set 5 different statuses (marked by different colors) for availability for each day, or leave it "Unset", while in the mobile app it is a binary switch. In spite of that, the two things seem to be connected, and as a result, if a person's status is set to ANYTHING ELSE than 100% fully available, it will show up on the mobile app as "unavailable". Could this be fixed, please?
If a search criteria like this is indeed necessary, may I suggest that a person would be considered "Unavailable" only if that is indeed what he/she marked herself in the availability calendar?
And as to the setting, instead of the binary switch that is there now, could we please have a different input method (slider, radio buttons, pull-down or something) to be able to set the same 5 settings (actually 6 with "unset") as we have in our profiles?
This discrepancy of 2 vs. 6 settings is disturbing, and as it is now, I am better off not setting up my availability calendar, because at least in that case I would not show up as "Available: No", as it would show "N/A".

Hello Katalin,

Thanks for your suggestion. Availability settings in mobile will be reviewed. I will post here once I have any news.
