OOO LaLa! The art of the out–of–office email

OOO LaLa! The art of the out–of–office email

As the August Bank Holiday approaches a few of us have cleverly extended their break with some well–earned annual leave and we got to thinking about the art of the OOO, that is, the out of office message. 

It reminded us of this article from our CEO and Founder, Gareth Dunlop about the UX lessons we can learn from this most mundane of administrative tasks. In this article Gareth: 

  • examines the core function of the out–of–office message
  • discusses the end user’s expectations of the content
  • offers a best practice guide to the perfect OOO
