Out Of Office Agent in HCL Connections

There is no change in HCL Connections to mark myself as absent for the holidays. If I address a topic with @ to a person and this person is on vacation, I don't get to know this. If I enter @Name in Connections, there should be a hint above it, like in Outlook.

Who benefits: All users

Technically implemented: There would have to be an out of office assistant similar to Outlook.

    I like this idea very much, but do not fully agree with the proposed implementation.

    Instead, there should be a way to retrieve that information directly from Exchange (or Domino).
