Out of Office–All the Details or Not So Much?

Business chair with out of office sign concept for vacation, holiday, lunch break or work life balanceBy Tina Altman

With the holidays and the most exciting event in parking and mobility quickly approaching, out-of-office auto-replies (OOOs) are going to flood inboxes for sure.

As an association, we get many of these. Some are direct, some are very detailed, and some make me LOL.

I always try to be as detailed as I can when I have to set an auto reply but then I think, is it too much? Because of the many hats we all sometimes wear, I feel the need to give direction in my absence, so no one has to fret if they need answers right away.

How are you setting yours this season? Is just OOO, be back XWY enough?
