This does seem a bit dumb at first, "Why cant you just click on the button and change it?". The whole point for the status icon is so you can quickly show your friends when your online and can play your favorite game together, or when your working and don't want to be disturbed (Unintentional pun sorry). But it's gets quite annoying to keep changing your status every once in a while. Discord has already introduced the Quick Switcher to easily swap from channel to channel (Which I love btw) so why not add a Quick Stat feature.
An example of a solution to this would be this 'traffic light system'. You have your normal DND, Idle and Online options that will appear when you hover over your profile picture and will change as you scroll up and down your mouse wheel. Perhaps the Invisible and Custom options could make their way into this feature. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I'm not the one making this idea.
So going back to the question "Why cant you just click on the button and change it?". Well I imagine the same person doesn't use Quick Switcher a lot and would also question the purpose of that. The answer is it's convenient, fast, simple and makes life that little bit easier, and for anyone whos really fussy about online status (That's me by the way!).
