You’re on your way to out of the office, free as a bird for the next two weeks. Except that you forgot to set your Gmail auto-response and your phone keeps blowing up with messages. The Google web app adds features that will help keep you sane.
The much-needed additions are multiple-user sign in, mobile signature, and, of course, auto-respond, and all three are vital for that mad dash to the Bahamas. It’s easy. The app will let you log into whatever Google-powered email you have via the Accounts menu, so set up your auto-responder message for work. Do make it clear that you don’t have time for work nonsense while you’re away. After that, log back into your personal email, click Settings, and make a signature that expresses just how much liquor you’ll be drinking while you’re away.
By the time you’re done, you’ll be on your way with a little peace of mind. [Gmail Blog]
