Disabling or Going Offline/Away in Messaging and Skype App

Hey all, how goes it?

Got the new Messaging / Skype / Video app recently after that W10 update and it's more convenient... but is there a way to disable/go offline in the app? I use it for work and when I'm off at home on the tablet, I don't want to be so accessible :wink: I've disabled "receiving messages/calls" in the video app, but does that do it (not so convenient if that's how you go on "away")? I still show up as "online" when I check on another account on WP Skype (but that could be the terribly done Skype WP app too). Skype Web seems to say I'm away.

Thanks homies.
