deadline is Wednesday, but have 2 days off Manager assigned a special task in addition to my full workload which involved using a list of customers, creating an email template which asked survey questions and then contacting them with it. Also, contacts were to be logged and tracked on a spreadsheet. I followed protocol however some customers didn't answer their emails and unfortunately I didn't have time to them. The deadline is Wednesday but I have Tues+Wed off. Therefore I emailed the manager with a progress report and sent the spreadsheet back with the notes requested. I told him that upon my return later in the week I could the remaining customers. As a reward for their feedback, customers were being offered a prize. So far I have about a 60% response rate to the survey and with the follow up s I should have nearly 100%. Let's say you were given this project and realized you needed a few more days to complete it. Would you send what you did so far like I did OR would send nothing, ask for an extension, and upon your return, complete the task? The thing is, the manager said the deadline was Apr. 22 and that's why I sent my nearly completed work ahead of time. Thoughts?

send it. Sounds like ya'll didn't realize people don't return that stuff because you have a deadline. (not being smarmy to you) I'd give the boss the info...say we can either go with this, wait a bit more for returns and/or you can start ing but that will also be hit or miss. Then let the boss decide what he/she wants. Good luck! (FWIW, my dh/boss avoids stuff like that...he simply doesn't have time to do things like that)

    reading between the lines and knowing nothing about your industry, I'd say off the top of my head that your boss sort of expects that report on time, whether it is your day off or not.

    yeah, being a recent college grad, I guess I got used to forgiving profs who'd give extensions if enough students asked for it. But in business, deadlines exist for a reason. I'll bet he wants to manipulate the data and pass it along to another department..
