Announcement: New version of my Australian Response Group Holiday Rules, Now fully automatic every year!

By | December 10, 2017

I’ve finally finished it! After my last script for 2106/2017 I decided to make a fully automatic Australian Response Group holiday sets for 2018 and beyond.

I had planned to release a 2017/2018 version in October.. and after actually writing it all. I figured it would be heaps more reliable to use a proper Government source instead of my dodgy so re-wrote everything from the ground up to support XML

Then I had to re-write it AGAIN to stop it removing the association with existing response groups. So really hope someone finds this useful.

I’ve put everything over on GitHub if your interested in forking the code for your own purposes. Otherwise a download is available over on Technet.

Run this script to have it pull data direct from the Aust. Gov. website and update your Skype4B for Lync on prem instance accordingly.

Also big shout out to Greig Sheridan for testing.

Don’t have internet access? Thats ok. The script allows you to manually import the XML file.
