Option to apply Automatic replies (out-of-office) recurrence in Microsoft Outlook 2016.
It would be great to be able to specify recurrence (same as in calendar appointments) on automatic replies (out of office) in Outlook 2016. For example: I am out of office every "odd" Friday.

Ability to set a recurring out of office reply for a given day of the week, e.g every Friday

It’s not our intention to advertise our application, but we have developed an online application where we try to solve many of the problems I read here in this thread.
We want to reach out to people who will have benefit of this tool and hope to get some feedback along the way. Hands-on feedback so that we can further improve the tool.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ADD THIS!!!!!!!!!!!! IF I HAVE OFFICE HOURS, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE A RECURRING MESSAGE THAT GOES OUT AFTER MY OFFICE HOURS HAVE ENDED! mAYBE IT CAN EVEN WORK WITH THE CALENDAR.
Would also be great if one could set up recurring automatic replies for out of regular working hours.
I work with people from all over the world who often wonder why I don't reply to their emails when it's for example 2 am in my time zone or it's the weekend.

I'd like to have an Auto Reply for EVERY FRIDAY saying I'm not on emails, but developing creative solutions, well-being and productivity.
I don't want to have to turn this on every Friday.
Please make this automatic.
Shame to see this issue has been proposed since 2016 but still no action from MS?
I have been doing a search across proposals and it has been coming up every year...

Autosvar på faste ugedage eller weekender
Auto response on regular weekdays or weekends
Absolutely, this seems like a nobrainer
Kris McGowan commented
Yes, absolutely agree, I have a task in my calendar to remind me to set it every week
Andy Prinz commented
returning autoresponder, for example have an option to choose a weekly autoresponder for people who don't work on specific days
For people who are out of office 1 day per week, please add an option to activate the autoreply message reccuring, as it is possible for a meeting :
for example : wednesday from 8am to 6pm, every week. Or every 2 weeks, etc...
Please do this I work compressed weeks and would be helpful to not need to remember to set up every wee.

Create an option for setting up a scheduled out of office mail that enables and disables itself based on selected days of the week.

Réponse automatique programmée pour un jour par semaine
Automatic answer programmed for one day a week
Je suis absente un jour par semaine, tous les mercredis. J’aimerais avoir une règles qui me permette de mettre en place une réponse automatique tous les mercredis de l’année et que je n’ai plus à m’en préocupper.
Si en plus je pouvais avoir un message d’absence automatique à chaque fois qu’une absence est renseignée dans mon agenda, ce serait parfait.
I am absent one day a week, every Wednesday. I would like to have rules that allow me to set up an automatic answer every Wednesday of the year and that I do not have to worry about it any more.
If in addition I could have an automatic absence message every time an absence is filled in my calendar, it would be perfect.

I would love to be able to select particular days as OOO every week as a part time worker. I frequently forget to set it over a split week. Even better would be to select days/hours in advance in a calendar type scenario. Given the rise in flexible working it would be a well used feature.
