Tech Bits: Set Your Email & Phone in Vacation Mode


Tuesday, April 24, 2018

It's that time of year when many Temple faculty and staff are out of the office to enjoy some time off. Let your colleagues and coworkers know when you're not available by setting up automatic email and phone notifications. 

At any time, you can set up an automatic email reply to start and stop on particular dates. You also have some control over who will receive your out-of the-office reply. For instructions, see the Microsoft Exchange/Outlook or Gmail instructions. 

You can also record an extended absence voice message on your phone and easily remove it after your time off. If your phone service was recently migrated to the new VoIP system, see the VoIP instructions for recording an extended absence greeting. If your phone hasn't been migrated, see the instructions for the older phone service.
