Tips and Tricks - Out of Office

If you use your mobile phone for work, chances are that occasionally calls may come through at an unsuitable time. Luckily HulloMail Business can help thanks to our 'Out of Office' feature that allows you to manage when callers will receive your standard greeting or your Out of Office greeting. This feature enables you to leave the caller in no doubt about your current availability.

Out of Office is incredibly easy to set up and has two different modes to choose from. Manual mode allows you to turn on your Out of Office greeting simply by swiping from off to on; it will then remain on until you turn it off again. Scheduled mode allows you to set a time that your Out of Office greeting will play, for example 6pm to 8am. It also lets you choose specific days where the greeting will play all day, for example Saturday and Sunday.

To set this up, from the iPhone app, please select; Menu ->Greetings -> Out of Office. To assign your Out of Office greeting click on the current greeting, then choose from your greetings list or record another one by clicking the + icon in the top right of the screen.

Once a greeting has been assigned you can either swipe 'Manual' from off to on to play your Out of Office greeting at all times, or you can swipe 'Scheduled' from off to on in order to choose the times you want your Out of Office greeting to play. When you're finished don't forget to click 'Save' to save your Out of Office greeting.

Please bear in mind that any Individual greetings that you have set up will be played instead of your Out of Office greeting.

Currently Out of Office is only available to Business users on iPhone.

Enjoy your voicemail!
