How to Set Up Your Out Of Office Messages
About Out of Office
If you are going on annual leave or will be working from another campus, visiting a conference or taking time out of the office for any other reason it is helpful to place an out of office message informing those who contact you that you are away.
It is helpful to include in your out of office messages:
- the dates you are away
- the reasons for your time out of the office - annual leave, visiting another campus etc
- contact details of colleagues that people can contact in your absence.
You can set up an out of office response both within Outlook to be sent to those who contact you by email as well as on your voicemail on your desktop phone.
