What you need to do is appear offline while you are on xbl. The setting will stay offline until you manually switch to online again. No more having to set it before getting on live. The setting remains where you left it until you change it again.

Go to xbox.com sign into your account hover over your account then click my account. Go down to the bottom of the page and click manage my privacy and online settings. It should then have your account ticked! Simply scroll down to others can:see if your online and block it. To undo it just go on your xbox one and go to your account settings and undo it!

If you are using a wired connection to the internet, you could disconnect the internet cable and then sign-in to your profile.  From there you can select your profile and set the setting to appear offline.  After that you can plug the cable back in and sign-in to your profile and you should appear offline.

If you are using wireless, turn on your xbox one, but cover the kinect or move out of view of the kinect so you will not be signed in.  Go to the settings of the xbox one and attempt to turn off the wireless connection.  Then sign-in to your profile and then set your profile to appear offline.  Next go back into settings and re-activate all the wireless settings.

If you appear offline while playing a game, then actually get offline, does what you were doing show up in your activity?

Quite simply before you log out, go to home, where it shows your gamer picture, name and gamertag move to that option and push A. Then select my profile, you'll see appear online, change it to appear offline.

Then when you sign out, it will keep you as offline, but also when you sign in next it will still say you're appearing offline until you change it.

Before you login, go to settings and Network, and go offline. Then log in to your profile, go to friends, my profile, show offline. Then go back to settings and Network, go online, then "connect to xbox live" on the main screen.

Yah but what XBOX needs to do is make it like 360 where you can go offline before you sign in.

Going offline before setting appear offline works. Don't forget that your kinect if you have one can sign you in before doing these settings. I wanted some quiet gaming for myself without feeling guilty not joining others that invite me. And then there was kinect with its magic 1 second I looked up it signed me in. Lol
