Provide an option to automatically set an Out Of Office message in Microsoft Outlook 2016 if a meeting in Calendar is set to Out Of Office
Provide an option to automatically set an Out Of Office message in Microsoft Outlook 2016 as soon as a meeting in Calendar is set to Out Of Office.
yes please! I have been looking to see if this is available, as have a lot of other people from what I have read. It makes perfect sense for the calendar and out of office auto replies to be linked so that when the calendar knows you're out of office, so does your email and will respond accordingly.
I, too, would love it if Outlook had an option, when setting certain calendar appointments, if automated reply messages would send during those times.

This would be very very helpful for us as well!

For people who suffer with a relentless stream of actionable emails, the option to trigger an auto-response / out of office message while a meeting is in progress could save a lot of time and greatly help manage expectations.
Ability to set an Out of Office message attached to a specific event in your calendar.
e.g. I'm off to a multi-day event and it would be great if I could get the calendar to apply Out of Office settings without me having to remember to set them.

When we are engaging in a meeting, out of office or travelling, how can we reply the email. If we were in roaming area where could not inform sender, it is too late !!
It would be great to add an option to enable email "Auto-reply" when setting an appointment or editing an invitation, selectable to mark some work appointments with email alert, i.e. auto email reply (out of office) or with other reason.

When composing an email or replying to an email and recipients are OOF aka have an automatic reply on - when there is more than ONE - be able to view the automatic reply by hovering over
need a simple out of office for 365 its too complicated

Please enable the option to set reoccurring out of office messages through the Outlook Application. This option is currently not available through the rules that are allowed on out of office messages. Please add check boxes for the days of the week to enable a reoccurring out of office - currently you can only set a specific date to trigger the OoO. This will benefit our offices that close on the weekends, and also people who work part time. Thank you.

Add an autoresponder option that a user can select that will enable the autoresponder to turn itself on and off according to "out of office" appointments in calendar. That way the user doesn't have to remember to configure it every time they are scheduled to be out of the office. It would be very convenient to be able to configure autoresponder to automatically take care of responding to emails when it knows I'm out of the office based on my calendar. It would need to also follow the other configured rules, if any.
