When working with our globally dispersed teams, it would be really helpful for project participants to know when a colleague is out of the office for a regional holiday, vacation, etc. When we email absent employees outside Easy Projects, we typically receive an automatic reply. When we post messages to a project, we have no idea whether there's a national holiday in Singapore or an employee is on vacation. This creates a customer service gap.
If there were some way for users to enter an "out-of-office" status that posts to all his/her active projects, that would be very helpful (I'd love to see both guest and licensed users have the ability to create their own and see others'). Our administrators would also welcome the ability to post alerts about company/national holidays and other large group absences that users would see in a news scroll or an alert to all members of active projects.
