What Does the RED DOT ICON Mean in Microsoft Teams?

In Microsoft Teams, the RED DOT ICON is a status alert. It indicates that a user is unavailable, a message is unread or a new assignment is awaiting attention.

During the Covid-19 outbreak of 2020, many users found that the red dot icon indicating a new assignment remained lit even when there were no assignments awaiting attention. The solution to this problem was eventually posted on the Microsoft Teams Community Help Forum.
