Set Your Email & Phone in Vacation Mode

It's that time of year when many Temple faculty and staff are out of the office to enjoy some time off. Let your colleagues and coworkers know when you're not available by setting up handy automatic email and phone notifications.


At any time, you can set up an automatic email reply to start and stop on particular dates. You also have some control over who will receive your out-of-the-office reply. For instructions, see the Microsoft Exchange/Outlook or Gmail instructions.


You can also record an extended absence voice message on your phone and easily remove it after your time off. For instructions, see recording an extended absence greeting.


If you have any questions, contact the Help Desk through the TUhelp web site at or call 215-204-8000.


Enjoy your time off!
