Configurations

The app once installed need to be configured with exchange email account. There are 2 set of configurations –

  1. Options – This let’s configure the preferences to enable use of certain features.
  2. Accounts – Here you can configure one or more email accounts.

Options

The app provides two exclusive features in addition to the core feature of setting the Automatic Replies. As a user you can turn on these features from the Options menu.

Cancel Appointments

On turning this feature on the app will cancel the appointments during the OOO/OOF period. This functionality works effectively when TIME PERIOD for OOO/OOF message is set. If not set it will cancel appointments for current date only.

Please note enabling this would decline all meeting request where you are the participant, with OOO/OOF message. For all appointments where you are the organizer the meeting will be cancelled with OOO/OOF message.

Once you switch on this option, there is sub-option that would enable you to view the appointments/meetings before been processed. If you enable this feature, the app will pop-up all the meetings/appointments and you can select the meeting/appointment you wish to attend, even when you are OOO/OOF.

Reminders to reschedule meetings

When this option is turned on, the app will create reminders in the task list for each appointment/meeting that was cancelled. Thus, when you are back to work you don’t miss on important meetings and this will help you reschedule the meetings. Each task created will have details about the appointment/meeting for reference.

Accounts

Here you can see the configured accounts. You can configure one or more exchange accounts. To configure, tap on the Accounts symbol and the Account page will be loaded, which will show you a list of all the accounts currently configured as well as a link to add new accounts.
