Creating an Out-of-Office Action

Unplanned absences, like business trips, illness or else can happen any time. Sometimes colleagues go on vacation and forget to activate their Out-of-Office Assistant in Outlook. Even if an employee leaves the company, a suitable message to their business contacts certainly makes sense.

With ScriptRunner, representatives or the help desk can easily and securely activate the Out-of-Office message on their behalf. Of course without the assignment of administrative rights and access to their personal mailbox.
