recurring automatic reply
On the Automatic reply (out of office ) feature PLEASE include a fucntion which allows you to set a recurring out of office (automatic reply) for certain days of the week (for example every Monday). Many people work part time and are automatically out of the office on exact same days of the week - it would be great to be able to programme a function to automatically start a automatic reply at exactly the same time every week (a recurring one)

I can't believe in 2019 Outlook doesn't have this simple feature! A quick internet search will show people asking for this going back over 10 years and some very convoluted workarounds.

I am a part-time worker and would find it really useful if I could create a rule for my Out of Office Automatic replies to always be on on certain days rather than having to update it each week.

I work part time now, I really need this function. I cannot switch on the automatic reply daily after worked for 4 hours. It's so annoying.

Regular automatic replies (out of office)
As I work as part-time(half day), it is quite difficult for me to switch on the automatic reply daily. May I suggest to add a frequency in automatic replies or link it with the calendar? Or the automatic reply would be ready at the same time when I mark "Out of Office" in my calendar (or show as "Out of Office" status).

Very good idea. I would like to suggest also the option for enabling automatic reply for days which have been set OOO in calendar or an option to enable automatic reply when we set a full day OOO. Like signature, the possibility to have different messages for later use and reuse.
Thanks for the information you shared with us.

Ability to select certain days for automatic replies to go out. I work part time and this would be an extremely useful function rather then having to turn it on and off automatically
