Configuring the Out of Office settings

Once you have navigated to the Out of Office section, you can enter the necessary information. This includes the start and end date of your absence, and an optional note. Once completed, the information automatically saves.

How the Out of Office Feature Works

When a user is tagged in a note, while their Out of Office is activated, a prompt will appear advising the note writer that the tagged user is out of office. This ensures that tasks are not delegated to unavailable team members, enhancing productivity and communication within your team.
