Don't forget to set vacation email and voicemail settings before the holidays!

Dec. 17, 2021

As the holidays approach and winter office closures are upon us, don’t forget to update your vacation messages on your office phone and email account. 

Please take the time to change your office voicemail to instruct callers when you will be out of the office and when you will return. If applicable, leave a number for callers to contact in an emergency. Voicemail settings and personalized messages can be accessed on each of your desk phones. 

Vacation reminders on your email account are a great way to let colleagues know when you will be out of the office. A vacation reminder option can be accessed by clicking the “Settings” button (in the shape of a gear) in the top right corner of your email window. Select “See all settings” and scroll to the bottom of the page to find a window to type your vacation message and to select the dates during which you would like to have this message sent to anyone who emails you. 

These two simple steps help keep us all informed of the best way to reach each other, or better yet, the best way to get back in touch after we are all done relaxing. 

Thank you and happy holidays!
