25 “I Will Get Back To You” Quick Response and Email Templates

Table of Contents

Many times in the workplace, you will receive an email where the sender asks a question that you have no answer to.

This should come as no surprise considering that individual office workers in the United States receive, on average, around 120 emails per day. With that number, it’s highly improbable that you will be able to answer each one immediately, without having to perform any research or call for backup from a manager.

When these situations come up, it’s perfectly okay to reply to the sender, “I will get back to you.” You’re not Google and you don’t have all the answers. Even if you have the answer but you’re not sure of yourself, it’s always best to step back and check with a manager before sending a definite response.

In this guide, we’ll highlight some common situations where you may need to compose an “I will get back to you” email, tips for how to write it, and unique templates to get you started.

I Will Get Back To You Situations

Having an “I will get back to you” response handy helps you communicate effectively with several different types of people. You may find yourself using this phrase (or a variation of it) when you respond to emails from customers, coworkers, your boss, or professionals from other companies.

Below are 4 common situations in which emailing the phrase “I will get back to you” is appropriate.

Customer Support Issues

You may need to use the phrase, “I will get back to you” when responding to customer support issues. These issues include the customer not receiving their order on time or inquiring if a specific product is available. If the customer asks a question that you can’t answer right away, you can simply reply, “I will get back to you.” This lets them know that you received their query and that you are working hard to find the answer.

Price Quote Requests

When a customer or client emails you and asks for a price quote, you may need to respond, “I will get back to you” to give you time to generate the quote. In this situation, you may not be authorized to quote prices, which means you need to talk to someone who is, such as a supervisor or your boss. Contacting them and waiting on their answer may take longer than just a few minutes or even a few hours.

A quick “I will get back to you” email will buy you some time to navigate this potentially long process.

Schedule Availability Queries

You may receive emails from customers or other professionals in your industry asking about your company’s schedule availability. In this scenario, you may need to cross-check your schedule with those of some of your coworkers, such as service agents or technicians.

Replying to the query with, “I will get back to you” gives you time to confirm the next available slot in your company’s schedule with everyone on your team.

Project Status Questions

Oftentimes, you will receive emails from clients or supervisors inquiring about the status of a project the company has been working on. It may take you some time to track down the project manager and get a status update. In this case, it’s perfectly professional to reply to the sender, “I will get back to you.”
