Before the break, you may have taken steps to establish your “out of the office” status. Here are some pointers for double-checking that you haven’t overlooked anything on your return.
- If you set up a vacation responder in your email, double-check the dates to make sure Gmail isn’t still telling people you’re out of the office.
- Check on how you’re managing voicemail so that you can field calls appropriately.
- If you use a personal device to check email, you may have turned off notifications for your work accounts. Here’s how to turn them back on for Android devices and Chromebooks, iPhone and iPad, Mac, and Windows.
- Make sure that your “Out of Office” events and work hours in Google Calendar reflect your return to a regular work schedule.
