Set up Recuring out of Office Replies for certain dates.
At my job we are on a 9/80 schedule so we have off every other Friday, so It would be nice to set up out of office replies like a recurring meeting on those days. Also would like to be able to schedule more than 1 out of office reply for the future. Long story short be able to give the same options as meeting request to out of office replies.

Our office offers a 4/10 option and wants us to use an automatic Out of Office reply on our scheduled day off each week. Ideally, the Out of Office Assistant would have the capability of setting up recurring automatic replies, yet still allow the set up of an additional automatic reply for vacations, PTO days, etc., without disturbing the recurring reply.

I work a 6a-3p Sun through Thu shift. I would love to be able to set up an automatic Out of Office message for 3p-5:30a Sun through Wed and from 3p Thursday to 5:30a Sun.

Add the ability to enter times that auto-replies will recur each day. For instance, customers forget that we're not open 24/7. We need an autoreply to turn on at 5:30 pm to tell them we're not there, and then turn off at 8:30 the next morning, and then turn on all day on the weekends automatically without having to turn it on and off manually each day.

Add the checkboxes fro the weekdays in Automatic replies. I for example, am out every Friday and I have to remember to turn on my out of office every Friday. If you add the checkbox I could have my out office turn on only on Fridays within the timerange selected. Thanks!

This would be really helpful to be able to schedule out of office replies. Tying it to office hours in the calendar program would be great option too.
Instead of configuring this in the out of office manager, I would look for this feature in the calendar Item itself. this would maybe solve the topic of different accounts as well, as the calendar is already account dependant.
- >set up a calendar item (e.g. recurring) and add the Reply throughout the validity of the event.
Ability to schedule OOR on recurring basis for days with time. I only work certain hours in the morning and in late afternoon, I want to send out OOR from 3pm - 5pm and I do not want to set it this up everyday.

Allow for recurring (i.e. given days of the week) out of office msg. Or add a msg. header content match on the server side rules.
I think it would be great to have the option in outlook to set up a recurring out of office from a set time each day.
e.g. if you arrive in office at 9am & leave the office at 5pm each day - setting up a recurring OOO reply to initiate at 5pm each day and end when you return the next morning.
There's about 20 people in my office alone that would use this feature.
