Emailing & Email Auto Replies
I've drafted a suggested template for the auto reply on all of our email accounts. Feel free to personalize as per your personality, but I'd appreciate content remaining the mostly same.
Thank you for your message! The VC office is closed due to a mandatory province-wide shut down in Ontario. Emails are still being monitored but a response to this message may be delayed. Stay healthy, safe and optimistic! #weareallinthistogether
Some of you have asked about keeping an eye on your email while the office is shut down. Here are my notes:
- I will not be shutting down any one's access to emails, but I may need to do in to your emails to help workflow while you're not working.
- I have zero expectation for you to email or do any work whatsoever while you are not working.
- If you want to do an emailing or project work, it must be understood that it is being done so completely on a volunteer basis and of your own choice.
To be clear, me, Ahmad or Katie will likely be sending your work email accounts work-related emails during the shut down, but they are completely intended for when you return to work. You are completely entitled, and perhaps it would be best to, take your work email off your personal devices and such.
Here is a googledoc where you can list your personal contact information if you want to share it with each other: VC Team Contact List. This chart's for you and only if you want to use it; I'm staying off it :)
