I’m a faculty or staff person, and I’ll be going on vacation. How do I set up an away message in my email account?

Log into your G-Suite account, and follow these steps:

  1. Click on the gear icon (at the upper right) and go to “Settings”
  2. On the “General” tab, scroll down until you see the “Vacation responder” section
  3. Fill in the text box called “Message” with whatever you want it to say
  4. Select “Vacation responder on”
  5. Click the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the page
  6. Remember to come back to this page and select “Vacation responder off” when you return from vacation (you can leave the text box filled in or clear it)

Note: you can program the message to start and end on specific dates by filling in the boxes “First day” and “Last day” before hitting save.
