Tech Tip: Out of Office Replies and Phone Messages

Leaving your office or campus for the summer requires some planning. Here are a few things that you should keep in mind before heading out for a well-deserved break:

Out of Office Email Response

Setting your email to automatically reply is an easy place to start. This notifies correspondents that you will not be responding to their email right away. It’s always a good idea to include when you will be returning as well. Check out our Knowledgebase article on setting an out of office email response.

Alternate Voicemail Greeting

Similar to out of office emails, setting your voicemail to let callers know you are away is a good idea, too. This is called an Alternate Voicemail Greeting. This must be set manually.
