Out of Office Assistant always available for system administrators

Tools4ever, a global leader in Identity and Access Management, releases Out of Office Manager Tool (OOMT). Out of Office Manager Tool (OOMT) is an application that allows administrators to view the Out-of-Office settings for user accounts throughout the network and modify these settings where appopriate, without the need to use the login details of the user in question. In Microsoft Outlook, only end users have access to the Out of Office setting, resulting in problems when employee absence is unforeseen. OOMT solves this problem as administrators can easily modify the Out-of-Office settings and have e-mail messages sent to alternative employees.

When employees call in sick or forget to activate their Out-of-Office message before going on leave, their immediate colleagues are unable to edit the message without the login details of the absent user. With the Out of Office Manager Tool by Tools4ever, administrators will be able to modify and activate Out-of-Office messages to ensure that incoming e-mail messages are automatically forwarded to other employees.

Administrators can select the domain or OU for the Out-of-Office information they want to view directly from Active Directory. OOMT collects this information and allows administrators to modify Out-of-Office messages and/or have e-mail messages forwarded to another mailbox.

It is possible to integrate OOMT with User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA) from Tools4ever. Editing of Out-of-Office messages can be automated by linking UMRA to the organization’s HR system, which keeps track of vacations, sick employees or business trips. Additionally UMRA can deploy OOMT automatically when an employee leaves the company. In this case an Out of Office message is generated stating the employee no longer works at the company and the e-mail is forwarded to a relevant manager.

Through this integration, UMRA can automatically set the Out of Office message, after approval and adaptation by a manager, guaranteeing professional handling of e-mail correspondence.
