    This would be ace!

    Maybe if users had the option to set an "out of office" alert, or something similar that could be used for collaborators that don't have calendars too?

    Our reviewers are collaborators so we don't have their holidays in calendars.

    Thanks!

    I'll add a vote for "out of office" alerts. It's frustrating when you ping somebody for a response, only to find out later that they're on vacation.

    This feature would be a GREAT asset for our team! There are typically more people who are in the office involved in conducting reviews than there are who are assigned tasks.

    I'm adding a vote too ! This is super frustating when you @mention someone and realise he was OOO for a while.....

    I would like to take this one step further and allow auto-assigning to aย nominated person when you're out of the office, so your tagsย always get picked up (as we can do with emails) our currently clunky solution is to change our profile name to "NAME (OoO - Please refer to NAME)" which is less than ideal

    Has there been any movement with this request? I definitely would love to see this option as our company moves from Outlook to Wrike for communication. I definitely like the option to show they are out and who to contact or assign to in their absence.

    Any updates here?ย  We have clients direct message employees and we have no idea and can't repond without going into every task daily to look for comments. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    (Edited )

    Adding this suggestion from another thread:

    It would be extremely useful to be able to select a date range from one's profile to establish a timebound, out of office window.ย 

    Out of office status could be signified to other users by the system appending [Out of Office] to one's name between those dates. When someone is being assigned a task or @mentioned, the name would explicitly indicate the OoO status.ย 

    In an ideal implementation, one could mouse over someone's name and see the OoO dates.

    Thanks!
