"away from office message" in chat

Hello to all,  is there a plan in adding the option to "away from office message" in the chat options? Like some options in the emails? I really need to put some extra boundaries in overreaching clients.

Only for *all* clients, you can't pick individual ones.

So you'll have to resort to good old-fashioned client-training if you want to set boundaries to individual ones.

 

I only had one that could not be trained  so far.

Andres - For that one client, you could always send a message in reply to one you get from him or her saying you are away from your office, etc.
