The Best Out-of-Office Emails to Use for Your Vacation Days

July 21, 2021

We all know the sigh of relief we let out once we set that OOO email, but did you really get the message right? Sometimes setting our automatic responses gets confusing and we’re not sure what information to include and not to include. But because we want everyone to enjoy more of themselves on vacation and less of their inboxes, we’ve drafted some messages to use for your next round of PTO days. 

How do you set your vacation responders? Let us know in the comments section!
