I have 2 columns "made by" and "change by" with the following settings: person (with presence).

But it doesn't show the presence.

Like this picture below, it shows I am present by a green square enter image description here

But now I made a new list and it doesn't show it anymore.

Who knows the answer?

In SharePoint online modern experience, presence is not shown directly in list view.

Presence will be shown on the persona card (with profile picture) when you hover over or click on person name, like:

maybe it's a little late.

But you can try this with json formatting. enter image description here
