So lame that the system doesn't have this feature. It is a standard feature in every other chat system I have ever used. You say you are all about the end customer but they are the ones who will be frustrated when it says online and there is no one there.
Yes, easy to say you must change the status, but with our busy lives, it is easy to forget. Give your customers the flexibility to decide why are you so stubborn about this feature.
