My manager, a colleague and I received an email in which we're asked about participating at a workshop (it seems to be pretty important that at least I or my colleague take part).
While we'd both be interested in going it's not a decision that's up to us. It's up to our manager who is currently on holiday.
The person who sent the email is part of our company and way above my current position but I think in a different division.
My questions is should I reply with something like
We would love to take part but we can't give an answer until our manager comes back from vacation.
Or should I just leave it for my manager to answer when he comes back in a few days ?
My manager has an out of office reply so the sender knows that he's currently unavailable
Time may actually be pretty important here.
