New software from Tools4ever allows Systems Administrators to set and manage end user Out of Office messages.

Tools4ever, a global leader in Identity and Access Management, releases Out of Office Manager Tool. 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 appropriate, 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 an employee absence is unforeseen. The ability to turn on the Out of Office Assistant for the absent user is needed. With OOMT this problem is solved. Administrators can easily modify the Out-of-Office settings and have e-mail messages sent to another employee.

Employees may call in sick or forget to activate their Out-of-Office message before going on vacation or leave. Their immediate colleagues won't be able to activate this message, as they do not possess the login details of the absent user. After all, it is not a good practice to let employees share their credentials. With the Out of Office Manager Tool by Tools4ever, only administrators will be able to modify and activate Out-of-Office messages and ensure that incoming e-mail messages are automatically forwarded to another employee.

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 offers administrators the possibility 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. Automatic handling of Out-of-Office occurs by linking UMRA to the HR system in the organization. This system keeps track of vacations, sick employees or business trips. Additionally, contract information may be available to allow the extension of OOMT to consultants. Also available through integration with the HR system, UMRA offers the ability to deploy OOMT automatically when an employee leaves the company. This way an Out of Office message is generated stating that the employee is no longer employed at the company and that the e-mail is being forwarded to the relevant manager.

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