New feature: push Out-of-Office Autoreplies

Do you recognize the frustration that you message someone and still don’t have a reply 5 days later?

Most of us set Out-of-Office/vacation replies when we’re off for a couple of days. But what if someone left the organization but didn’t add a notification? Or even worse: if someone unexpectedly had an accident and will be unavailable for a while?

Admins can’t just log in into someone’s personal email without permission. And just forwarding all received emails to someone else isn’t only time-consuming, it isn’t desirable from a privacy perspective either. However, if urgent matters don’t reach the right team, it could pose quite a risk.

That’s why we introduced our new Out-of-Office Autoreply feature:

Using Admin Automation you can push automatic Out-of-Office replies to specific Google Workspace users. You don’t need access to someone’s personal email or settings, you can just push the Out-of-Office from out of the Florbs app.

The biggest advantages of this new feature

  • Avoid frustrations at sender side
  • Privacy
  • You won’t miss out on urgent emails from people that don’t know their email won’t be read
  • Consistent and branded autoreply templates.

Since this feature can be quite useful during offboarding, we’ve included the option to add automatic responders in our workflow builder as well.

How do I create an Out-of-Office template?

Go to the Florbs app and select ‘Out-of-Office’ within the Admin Automation section:

Create the template you want to use and push it towards specific users or add it to your workflows using the workflow builder.

There you go: people who are trying to reach your organization will be forwarded to the right team.
