Top tips to manage your Holiday inbox


The Holiday season will soon be upon us and we will all take a well-deserved break – hopefully somewhere hot!

What we all want to avoid though is the thought of an overflowing inbox when we get back to work.

At Emailogic we suggest that you do a little bit of planning before you go on leave.

Here are our top tips:
•Talk to your teams and devise a company Holiday Out of Office template – you may wish to use a different template for internal and external emails
•Set up rules to manage messages when you are out of office – for example an email from your clients or managers are automatically forwarded to a specific person/ filed in a folder.
•Ask your IT Department for support in setting up your Holiday Rules
•Ensure that PA’s and support staff are well briefed to support their bosses on setting up and to make sure the company’s approved Out of Office message is used EVERY time
•Do not forget to turn your Out of Office message off when you get back!

Emailogic suggest the following basic template:

Thank you for your email.

I am currently out of the office until [time/date].

I will respond when I return. If your email is urgent please call [NAME] on [direct line/ switchboard)

Your Signature

Have a great holiday – and come back to an empty inbox!
