We are nearing the festive season of the year and can’t help but imagine us enjoying the holidays. Now before you start planning the places to visit and the travel tickets, it’s always good to plan your office work as well. Ensure that your team (and your Boss) is well aware of your leave dates. While you prepare your work handover to your colleagues and team-mates, also make sure to put an Out Of Office (or OOO) message in your mailbox.
The people who send mail to you could be clients, vendors, teammates, etc. Setting an Out Of Office message will keep them informed of your plans and when to expect a response from you.
Wondering what should your OOO message be? We’ve got your covered! Feel free to choose either one of the two below templates!
