Can a Vacation Tracker Admin or Approver turn on/off the OOO (Out of Office) feature for users?

You may be wondering: If I turn on the Out-of-Office feature, will it only be enabled for my account?

This feature cannot be turned on or off or setup by an Admin or an Approver. Because users must give permission to connect their Vacation Tracker account to their email provider, a user must set their own OOO settings.
