Automatic Out of office replies

Use the following procedure to set up an automatic Out of office reply (e.g. due to a vacation):

  1. Go to https://www2.karlin.mff.cuni.cz/network/vacation/ and log in with your Karlin account (i.e. with the same login and password as to your email).
  2. Select the period after which the auto-reply should be sent: first click on the day in the calendar to select the start date, second click on the day in the calendar to select the end date (you can also select the same day) - the selected period will then be highlighted. If you make a mistake when clicking, you can correct the period by clicking again (the first is the start, the second is the end).
  3. In the "Subject" and "Message" fields, type the subject and the text of the automatic reply.
  4. Save the settings by clicking "Submit" button - a confirmation will then appear at the top of the page confirming that you have set the autoresponder for the selected period.
