Out Of Office mApp

SLAs can be impossible to meet if your Service Desk staff aren't vigilant in keeping track of their colleague's presence. This is a familiar challenge for many remote workers today. 

Although it's common practice to set an out of office message in Outlook when going on annual leave, many Service Desk users forget that they should also set their out-of-office dates within Cherwell. Without these absence dates being set, tickets can be unwittingly assigned to absent staff members, causing SLA breaches and, of course, a stack of breached tickets for the assignee to address on their return. 

Customer Challenge


By utilising our Out of Office Sync mApp, it's possible to seamlessly populate your staff's absence dates in Cherwell from their Automatic Replies configuration in Outlook.
