Before we go on vacation or take a few days off, the ideal is to set up automatic responses in Gmail when you are not in the office . In this way we can leave those who write to us about certain topics that require a quick response calm. Thanks to the automatic responses, we can clarify that for a few days we will not be checking the email and that your message will be answered from the date we return to the routine..
We will not even give the impression that we are ignoring anyone, while we get away from work a bit to rest and enjoy our free time; We could say that it is a technological comfort on vacation. A little further down we are going to see how to configure out of office responses in Gmail in an extremely easy and fast way.
How to set up automatic replies in Gmail from the web
The first thing we will do is go to our Gmail account in Chrome, Firefox or Edge. Then, we are going to click on the gear-shaped button that is in the upper right corner of the screen..
A small menu is displayed where we will have to click on "See all settings".
We scroll down the "General" tab, until we get to the "Automatic response" section..
We are going to start by entering the first and last day of the vacation that we will take.
We will enter a subject line to reply to the email in the Subject box. Then we will write our message as we wish and finally we will click on "Save changes".
Depending on the settings, if a person is constantly texting us, all they will get is intermittent automatic replies. This is done to prevent our account from sending “spam” to others.
Set up automatic reply in Gmail on mobile devices
To make automatic responses in Gemail from a mobile, open the Gmail application and click on the three-line menu in the upper left corner of the screen. We will scroll down and click on "Settings".
We are going to press on the account in which we want to configure a response when you are not in the office; we scroll down and touch " Automatic Answer ".
Click on the "Automatic answer" switch to activate it; we are going to enter the first and last day of vacation, then the reply subject and compose the message in question.
This process is quite simple, although if we have several accounts it is something that we will have to repeat in each one of them.
